Feb 2012 -- I get my first i-phone
July 2012 -- I begin my salad a day Instagram campaign
by Septmeber 2012 I am down from posting 3 or 4 times a week to 1 time a week if that...
and now... Blog? -- what blog?
Why blog when you can press a button on your phone and post a photo -- an "Instabrag" to all your friends, and random strangers who care to follow you and your life.
So instead of blogging more - I've installed an "Instawidget" on the side of my blog. Is that cheating?
However, the new panorama option for the i-camera is not super compatible with Instagram. So I will now share with you a non-square format photo I took last week in Brighton, England. A most magical building: The Royal Pavillion, designed by John Nash.
It reminds me of a cross between the Taj Mahal and the facade to Disney's Small World Ride.
Yes, I'm a self professed grown-up child. And Yes, I actually already own a one piece pajama outfit with feet, aka a onesie. But today I came across this Kigurumi Shop, and had to share. According to the shop's website Kigurumi comes from a combination of two Japanese words: kiru ("to wear") and nuigurumi
("stuffed toy"). Traditionally, it referred specifically to the
performers wearing the costume, but the word has since grown to include
the costumes themselves. In Japan, kigurumi costumes are worn as a way
to break the conventions of traditional dress… or just as comfy pajamas!
There are so many cute ones to choose from.
But for some reason (maybe it's the wings?) I have my eye on this one:
I just came across an interesting site called Chasing Props The site helps track down props and dressing from TV shows. Someone was looking for my art and they posted this nifty little GIF of Robin, aka Cobie Smulders, rocking baby Marvin.
That magnificently, adorable piece in the background is Elephants Drinking at the Watering Hole available at skartshop.com
