World Cup

As our tv is in a box and we only have an air mattress and our computers in the apartment. My mother-in-law gave me the website so I can watch the game on the computer!

Dear fellow readers,

It will be a while until I start writing and posting on my blog again because we are on the process of packing! We are moving to:

We do not know a whole lot about the city so if you do know and have some input to give us, please write and let us know of any cool places to go, things to see and things we cannot miss while living there.
Thank you for your help,

Kel at BetweenTheLines-Kel has asked me to write a guest post for her blog about an online course I am taking that I really recommend. I have been learning about a "new" blogging platform Posterous. Kel, thanks for the opportunity!

Tools to add effects to your pictures!

Hello there,

Today I am going to talk about some fun websites available to add effects to your pictures.

The first one that I love is FaceinHole. You can do pretty much anything to your face, you can turn yourself into a princess, you can be a piece of art among others. Give it a try, I recommend it.

Another great fun one is Zwinky but instead of inserting your picture you can create characters that look like yourself.

There is also Dumpr that adds some very funny features to your pictures. I recommend checking it out. There is no need to become a member or to sign up. This was my first attempt at exploring this website.

You can add some effects with your pictures at Photofunia. Take a look at my attempt at adding some motion to my picture.

You can use Loogix to create some fun pictures. You can even use some animation in your picture. I created a gif. using my picture.

Fotoline does not offer a lot of things but the water effect that it brings is very cool. Check it out:
Add this effect to your own photos

Befunky has some great features to add to your pictures. There are many options to share your picture, you can upload to your computer, get the embed code for certain websites but blogger is not on their list! I saved on my desktop and then pasted it here. Have fun trying out all of these fun tools.

Love this website that I just found through another teacher's website - Funny Pho.To it has the same effects as the aboves but with some different video, movement picture effects as well. Feel free to explore it.
