Are you an Instagram-er? I am too! The wildly popular photo sharing service is a super-fun way to show off images on the go and share daily experiences in a visual way — something I can always get behind. I recently came across another cool service that allows you to turn your Instagram photos into magnets, and I decided to give it a try!

StickyGram is an online service that interfaces directly with Instagram and allows you to get a set of nine 2 x 2″ magnets from your favorite photos. The process is really easy. You simply login at StickyGram.com with your Instagram account information, choose your photos and order. I’m thinking choosing some photos of my kiddos would be a pretty fun gift for a grandmother on Mother’s Day!

A repeated angle, plus a collage of textures and colors

Behind the photo: This photo was taken at Libby Story on University Drive in Starkville, MS. It’s a women’s boutique, and I was there to take shots of some of their favorite Spring 2012 styles for a client blog post. I looked down and snapped a picture of the floor. Serendipity!

Something about the muted colors, the dim light and strong shadows in this photo has been inspiring me for about a year since I took it. And I love the texture of the beads.

Watercolor Word Paintings

I’m excited to share some of the new things from my Etsy shop! If you’ve been following Plop! lately, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been incorporating painting into my sketch journal process. Watercolor has been my painting medium of choice since I was in college, and lately I’ve enjoyed getting back into it — pairing it with some of the hand-drawn lettering that’s captured my interest. I’ve been working on a few watercolor “word paintings,” and I’ve decided to add my first prints to The Frog Kisser shop — available as 8 x 10″ and 11 x 14″! Here are a few I’m starting with. I hope you enjoy taking a look!
