PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS I LOVE

WHAT I’M DIGGIN’ ~ iPHONEART.COM

photo#1A few months back I was reading an article on CNN.com titled 12 Tips to Become a Better Smart Phone Photographer. I thought the article gave some pretty good tips considering there are so many people using their smart phones nowadays to capture their everyday goings on. And with apps like Instagram, Hipstamatic, Image Blender and Snapseed (just to name a few) using your smart phone to take photographs has never been more popular.

While reading the above article I was introduced to iPhoneArt.com, which is essentially a gallery of photographs taken by artists who are reveling in the smart phone photography scene. iPhoneArt is also responsible for curating and producing the first annual LA Mobile Arts Festival. Without getting into the debate over whether one should use a phone as a camera – I absolutely love the images and the art that’s showcased on the site and truthfully, I think you will too. The creativity is amazing. Check it out!

WHAT I’M DIGGIN’ – CLUB CHRISSIE

Like most people these days, I follow a slew of people on YouTube looking for cool projects, inspiration and even hair styles. Well, now I’ve discovered this fun-tastic DIY show called Club Chrissie. Club Chrissie, is hosted by Chrissie Miller, fashion designer, DJ and creative. In my opinion Club Chrissie is what would happen if Martha Stewart Living and Pee Wee’s Play House had a baby. You can subscribe to the iamOTHER YouTube channel to see more Club Chrissie.

In the episode below Chrissie puts a cute spin on key jewelry. I posted a quick pic of my finished piece as well. Enjoy!
