Photoshop Disasters!

Photoshop is an incredibly powerful tool for the graphics industry. Especially when dealing with photos.

Unfortunately, not everyone is trained in its use, nor are all users paying attention to their work.

Here is a really funny site that showcases some obvious and not-so-obvious poor uses of the Photoshop program.

Presenting, Photoshop Disasters.

Warning! Some of the pictures are not for young viewers, so use your own discretion.

Above and at right are two of my favorites:

Paper Cuts

I don't know why, but lately I have been really interested in paper models. I like to see them, download them and build them. We have already used one, an ankylosaur for our dinosaur study this year. Mommy helped both girls, which was probably best. The girls also made pop-up pterodoan cards for the same unit.

I've already included previous entries with links to unusual paper crafting - see the Fantastic Paper Sculptures post.

Here is another interesting use of paper, along similar lines, but not quite as colorful. Still entertaining. Thanks, Javan!

A Blessed Easter!

Without going into the spiritual whys and wherefores of this most holy of holidays, I would like to share a beautiful example of the creativity God has granted to his people.

This work is absolutely amazing. Not just the precision of the work, but the gentleness and care that must be taken in order to complete it.

Knitted Easter Eggs

A great easter project to knit. I'll put it on my WIM list and maybe get a few done by next year!

At least these Easter Eggs won't get broken.

Happy Anniversary!

It doesn't seem possible, but one year ago, today, I started this blog. Funny, I figured it would have more posts.

So much has happened since then and I'm glad I have started it. I can look back at old posts and see things I don't want to forget. The internet is such a big place that even things we really like can get lost. It seems much bigger than even the world in which we live. Maybe because mapping it would be impossible. The spider's web of connections would be so big as to seem like a black hole.
