A Fun Tool!

Sorry I have been such a slacker with this blog. I promise I will try to do better. The weather here has just got to clear up soon. I am missing the sun!

I thought it would be fun to share a fun thing I have stumbled upon....

It is a mosaic maker! This is a fun way to display pictures on your blogs, websites, etc. It did take me a little while to figure it out. I am a little computer challenged at times. I have a flickr account so I uploaded from there...but you can upload from your own computer. When I was ready to post it on my blog I had a few problems. I am not sure what "the right" way is...but I couldn't get the URL to work for me when I just copied and pasted to upload an image through blogger. There is a tiny little disc that shows under your creation that says download image. I clicked that and then copied and pasted that link instead. It worked that way. Kind of confusing. If you are having problems too...email me and I will try to help you figure it out. Here is an example of one I made today for my family blog...
On Friday the 13th we had my son's 10th birthday party with his friends. We took these boys to the movie "The Pink Panther 2". (Yes, we are a little crazy.) The boys found this great photo Op and I thought this was a fun way to put all the pictures on our blog...instead of just one at a time. Another fun tip is giving photos as a thank you gift. We are going to give each boy that came, his "scary" Friday the 13th picture {and the picture at the bottom of this post} with a thank you note for attending the party. It is a great way to give a memory that will last a lifetime!
