I really like the idea of Mosaic Monday and using this space in the week to throw together a soup of images, insights and inspirations collected through the previous week to share with my peeps here in the blogosphere. I'm sorry to say that I didn't do a lot of shooting this week except for documenting my Mother's Day Tea, so for today's mosaic I thought I'd feature my granddog Crockett. It has been awhile since he's appeared here.
Here are a few cool things I wanted to share with you this week:
Now that I'm hostessing my own weekly blog hop, Flower Art Friday, I'm familiarizing myself with the InLinkz interface and capabilities. In spite of a little glitch last week that seemed to affect everyone, I'm pleased with this service and the subscription is less than $20 a year so there isn't a whole lot to lose.
This week I learned how get more for my Inlinkz subscription by setting up a gallery and I may actually include several of these througout my blog. Click here for a tutorial. To see how I put this into practice on my blog, check out my Flower Art Friday information page and scroll to the bottom.
Light My Fire
I am totally digging Danielle LaPorte's The Fire Starter Sessions I bought the audio version and I highly recommend going that route. She has a smooth, soothing and reassurigly sassy voice that makes you believe you can do anything. I was able to get through all seven hours last week while commuting and I started over again this week.
Canvas for A Cause
I'm researching various online resources for printing my work for the upcoming Picturemorphun show, and came across this offer from Easy Canvas Prints. In honor of Military Appreciation Month (which is May, by the way) they are donating 25% of sales to benefit several fallen hero organizations.
When I ordered my piece, they were running a special and I got a 16 x 20 canvas print for $69.05 (regular price $91.40) and got free shipping. They immediately sent me a coupon for 40% off my next order as well. I'm experimenting with different print on demand services so I will review them all when I've got a sampling of all. I have to print six different pieces for my shows, so I will review at least six of them. If you have any recommendations, please shoot me an email at email@example.com.
A Day in the Life
Have you heard about the aday.org project? This is one of those worldwide campaigns encouraging people to take photos of a day in their life all on the same day. I just found out about it today, and tomorrow is THE day, but I plan to join in.
That about wraps it up for me. Here's wishing everyone a great week ahead.
