Last Day of Melissa M-O Giveaway and a new very fun photo APP - Instagram

Don't forget to sign up for the Melissa Morgan-Oakes' new book Teach Yourself Visually Circular Knitting and Sock Yarn Giveaway by midnight tonight. Here is the link.

I've found something else very cool to do with my iphone. It's a photo app called Instagr.am and it is a free for the iphone, ipod touch, and ipad. Heard about it from Pia's beautiful blog (check it out if you haven't). Basically, you can use any photo you take with the app or that is in your photo library (on the phone). Then you crop and size it. At a touch of the button, you have some gorgeous looking filtered fun photos. There are 17 filters to choose from. They are then immediately posted to the Instagr.am sharing site. It's one of those social sites and although I'm not much into that kind of thing, some folks are. Mostly, I've been filterizing my iphone photos and sending them to myself as emails. Like this one of a field I drove by this morning.


And this one of the sheep grazing this morning. Don't they look naked?


And these two of our friends' swimming hole we sat next to on the 4th of July.



It's great fun and I have Julia into it. She is using her ipod touch and wireless when she can find it. Her name is catfarmer if you want to "friend and follow her" on Instagr.am she would be really happy. She is desperately hoping for my friends and comments on her photos. So very cute. My user name is kristinnicholas if you want to follow me.

I just heard from a friend about instagram and might give it a try. I love my iPhone and have had such fun with hipstamatic and pano. Hope you and Julia get some followers!
