"insta" small world after all...

oh the wonderful small world of Instagram…  I often find the way connections work to be completely fascinating.  And what a wonderful day it was to find a network of people in my own backyard.  It wasn't long ago that Instagram featured instameets around the world, and one such meet took place in small town Guthrie America.  I missed it… sad.  However, it was by searching these tags that I found a few images, which led me to one Darren Johnson - @darrenisreal.  I found his images intriguing & inspiring & refreshing…  And since the number of images I have with my favorite girl equaled almost zero, well I am just so glad he agreed to meet up on a pretty sunny morning.  And to say I'm thrilled with the results is an understatement.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.
and for all you curious cats out there… here's our six degrees of Kevin Bacon, haha:
Instagram » Guthrie » Darren » his swimming pool image » comment from my college classmate » me
Extra added small world factor: he also works at a location I worked at prior to our move to Germany, but we were never there at the same time.  Like I said, the way connections work… kinda mind blowing.

debbie's dozen

I'm having too much fun with these…
You know those crazy cat ladies?  Well… my mom is a crazy chicken lady.  Now we all know I get a little (a lot) excited about my dog.  Well let's just say she gets a little happy when she is talking about her chickens…  We really enjoy getting fresh eggs- right from her farm, so I decided to design a little fun for her packaging!

well and maybe a little fun for her wall or desktop too… wink wink.

social media buttons: clean & simple.

So along with my new simpler, redesign… I am smiling ear to ear about my new, colorful social media buttons!  I know!  fun stuff.  Changing my layout and widening the right column allowed me to squeeze them together, so they could all be one big happy family!  And with just a little bit of Photoshop and HTML knowledge, you can customize them to your heart's content!  

which of course means my little share buttons needed some updating as well… 
a big thanks to the blog decorator for her great little tutorial on the subject!
