Beautiful Mess & Fun Game

So, my post today was intended for yesterday, but I ran out of time.  Well, technically I didn't run out of time, but I guess I ran out of blinks because I could no longer hold my eyes open to finish what I wanted to share.

Anyway, I am sure most of you probably have heard about Instagram.  If you have an account, I have officially joined.  Just look for 1st Grade Fantabulous.  Well, some of my friends that have been posting pictures the last few weeks have been adding cute little doodles, text, and borders to their pictures.  I decided to do a little digging and discovered that most of them are using an App called Beautiful Mess.  I went and got it yesterday for $2 and played with it last night.  Here are the screenshots and instructions I added for each area of Beautiful Mess.  If you are like me, I want visuals.

Now that you've seen all the pictures, I have some great news and a little bit of irritating news.  Which should I start with?  I think I'll give you the irritating news first.  Beautiful Mess isn't available on the Android Market yet.  I know right?  Irritating!  Once again, Apple products have everything.  Well, here's a solution if you want to be able to decorate your pictures, but you have a Droid.  Several of my friends use an app called Phonto.  I haven't had time to play with it yet, but when I downloaded it I was able to get it for free.

Alright, time to go work.  Have a great day!

Oh, I forgot to give you the great news, huh?  Well, I had this random idea yesterday that I thought would be kind of fun.  I had to run to Target yesterday to grab a few things.  Below is a picture of the bag that I was given with everything I bought.  I'm creating a game called "Guess What's in the Bag?"  Here's how you play.  Everyone gets ONE chance to leave me a comment naming ONE item that they think is in my bag.  You guess by leaving me a comment in my feedback section at the bottom of this post.  All guesses are due by 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 27 also known as tomorrow.  You can guess something someone else has already guessed.  For example, if someone guesses an iPad (that isn't in the bag people) then more people can guess that.  So quick review.

One guess... one item... by 9 a.m. on 6/27.

Winners will be announced in my blog post tomorrow and will get to pick anything under $5 in my store.  Check back tomorrow to see if you are a winner!

Now, go do something fun!
