... and the rest is history.

Hell hath froze over today. I actually decorated in pink! I can hardly believe it myself. As any fellow red-head knows, pink is not a color that looks good on us. However... I couldn't resist this cute photo of a desert rose for my banner... and of course that leads to choosing a text color that matches... and the rest is history.

Do you have a color that you look horrible in &/or avoid like the plague? I've been trying to branch out my wardrobe, but so far pink and yellow have NOT made it in! ;P

How 'bout these cute blog buttons though? I love creating new looks for my blog. Sorry if it gives you whiplash. Here are a few buttons that I whipped up yesterday evening. Feel free to grab one for your blog. :)

INFJ vs INFP

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?





80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.



My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
