Keeping it Calm, Cool, and Creative with Cats and Apps for Sunday
While it’s only a couple weeks into January, life has already hit me full speed. My day job has been especially tiring – from doing physical inventory counts to special projects that require an enormous amount of mental application. I’ve also had to take a road trip the past two consecutive weekends (averaging between 6 to 8 hours in the car each time) and as a consequence my brain is pretty fried right now. When I get both mentally and physically drained, sometimes the writer in me disappears and I find I need to channel my creative side as an outlet to help center my mind.
Sometimes it will be a crochet project, sometimes its gardening outside, or like more recently, it might be adult coloring. I had put off the adult coloring for as long as possible – I’d seen the books for several years but didn’t want to give it a try because I knew I’d be instantly addicted. With the long road trips I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. Yes, I was instantly hooked, but it was a wonderfully enjoyable way to pass the time. For today’s post, I found myself craving something artistic, and knowing I had a full gallery of stunning photos of my cats to chose from, I decided to fool around with one of the photo design apps I have on my iPhone.
It’s called SuperPhoto and there are zillions of different applications to chose from. But, in my case, since I have an ancient iPhone (it’s a version 4 which is practically prehistoric in today’s modern times) I can’t get any of the premium filters to work and am limited to a handful of free ones. Oh well…they’re still pretty darn cool and it boggles my mind that all you have to do is upload a picture, pick a filter, and about 10 seconds later you have a new picture!! Here’s a few I had fun with – I hope you enjoy them and best wishes for a wonderful Sunday! Oh, and just a quick question – what things do you do in your life when you need to de-stress and clear your mind?
