What brand are those shoes?
This reader is referring to my favorite flats that Oreo loves to chew on. I shared a close-up picture on facebook & twitter yesterday and here’s another picture so you can see the pair of shoes. I love these mustard-colored flats. I could seriously wear them all day, every day.
The brand is Me Too. The style is called Nini Flat, and I probably picked them up at Nordstrom Rack a few years ago. I just did a little research and sadly, I don’t know if this color is carried anywhere anymore. But I did find them on DSW.com, in what looks to be the exact same style in bronze, pewter, navy, and black. And I found a super similar flat in red on endless.com.
And … I stumbled across something else in this crazy amazing shade of green that is causing me to have a serious shoe crush. But I don’t need them. I’m not buying them. Go me.
I don’t need them. I don’t need them. I don’t need them.
Dying to find out how hard it was to house train Oreo? This is my first puppy so I am new to this part of the training. While I know they have accidents, I hope my puppy learns quickly.
We’re so not there and I am so not the person to ask. Oreo is not totally house-trained yet. In fact, we just called in the experts and have an appointment set up for one day next week. I’m really hoping this professional can give us magic tricks so that we can get through the house-training phase soon. PS – He’s getting a haircut today.
Ok, call me an Instagram newbie… where/how do I get these babies printed? Costco is my go-to, just FYI.
Great question. I’ve been using Costco for many, many years too. So what I’ve done in the past is just drop my 4×4 Instagram image on a 4×6 canvas in Photoshop and save that new JPG to upload & print. Once I get the prints, I simply trim off the extra 2 inches.
However – I am really ready to try Persnickity Prints. I really like what they do and how they do it, and I’ve seen the prints in real life. I’m really impressed. I just haven’t printed anything recently. Of course there are other apps & websites for printing Instagrams but I don’t have personal experience with any of them … yet.
What is the paint color in your office?
There is no name for it because I color-matched a swatch of chartreuse from a piece of fabric or something when we painted this room 6 years ago. Sorry that’s not helpful.
Do you use anything for your iPhone other than the lens? I feel like your pics are always SOOO much clearer than mine.
Be sure you hold your phone very, very still – just as you would with a “real” camera. My iPhone pictures look the way they do because of the apps I use. My two most-used go-to apps are Instagram and Camera+. In fact, every picture in this blog post is the “Lo-fi” filter in Instagram. I should also mention that in the Camera+ app there is a “Clarity” setting that will give your picture extreme clarity, if that’s what you’re looking for.
You can see more of my favorite apps here.
There is just one lens that I have for my iPhone, but it’s not for clarity. It’s the Olloclip 3-in-1 Lens for iPhone 4 & iPhone 4S (Fisheye Lens, Macro Lens, Wide-angle Lens). It literally slips onto the corner of your iPhone, covering the built-in lens. Pretty cool. The picture below is a macro shot I took of my favorite brownie on the planet (found at Kneaders Bakery & Cafe).
Did you receive that new camera you ordered?
The Lytro? No. Thanks for reminding me. I should check into that since it feels like I ordered it forever ago.
Do you know the name of the tile on your backsplash? Brand… anything??? Thanks!
I really had to dig around and I think I found some helpful information. We got the tile from Craftsman Court Ceramics in Scottsdale, Arizona who carries tile made by Pratt & Larson Ceramics. I believe it was a custom color but on the back of one of the extra tiles, someone wrote W62 RUSTIC 3×6. The tile size is 3″ x 6″ and I’m wondering if the W62 RUSTIC is their code for our color.
Did you notice that nowhere in this post did I mention scrapbooking or Project Life? Just a nice little change of pace, of course. I am always happy to answer questions – related to my work or not. I won’t be able to address each one, but please know that Brandi (my Project Manager who just got the birthday surprise of a lifetime – watch the flash mob video) … does a great job collecting your random questions from all over the place. Emails, facebook notes, comments here on my blog, etc. Each Friday I try to address a handful from the ever-growing, on-going list. Next Friday I’ll get back to your Project Life questions.
Have a terrific weekend!
