This weekend I scored this polaroid colorpack II land camera from Erica’s Grandma. I have already purchased a fugi film pack to use with it. I’m so excited to use it. It’s like brand new and came in the original box and everything.
I also bought myself this hibiscus plant, my favorite flower. I just hope it is as cool as my mom’s, which blossoms all winter long.
Both the above pictures were adjusted using picnik, recommended by Rosa on her blog. You can do all sorts of effects with your images right on flickr.
Today I finally left my found art piece from last week. It was set on top of a lotto machine at Matt’s suggestion. I was so afraid that the guy at the register was going to get testy with us for messing around near the machine, but I think he was too busy helping customers.
Lastly, today I got some mail from my sister. She sent me a couple pages from her page a day calendar that she thought I might like. I liked ’em, thanks Chris! The top one says “Compose a poem and leave it in a public place to brighten up someone’s day” and the bottom one says “Stick a message on a fruit”. I love both of them, but the bottom one really has inspired me. It reminded me of two things:
1. When I was trying to fill up my Wreck This Journal page with fruit stickers, I totally cheated by covering the back of my hand with the stickers off of fruit I didn’t buy at the grocery store. One time I was checking out and wasn’t paying attention and the cashier saw my hand and asked “Are those our stickers?” She didn’t seem too upset so I showed them to her proudly and she just laughed.
2. I used to do this thing when I would go to Walmart where I would pick up fake plastic fruit from the craft department and strategically place them in the real fruit bins. They blend in amazingly. I never stuck around to watch as people picked them up and immediately were shocked at their lack of weight and delicious juiciness. Ha ha, I crack myself up.
Anyway, I think the next natural step in messing around with the produce department in grocery stores would be fake labels. I’m a graphic designer after all, how come I didn’t think of this idea sooner?
