It’s 85% done at this point, but I’m too excited about it so I have to post it right now. Here is a sneak peak of my next art project. You can see in the picture all of the cool ways you can view it.

There is a physical piece, and then I built a really awesome web builder that lets you customize the frame, put the piece through Instagram filters, change the layout, as well as sort the pieces in a bunch of cool ways.

Stay tuned for the actual page. I’ll be publishing it towards the end of the week! For those that just can’t wait here’s an animated gif of the builder.

It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow, and I was searching for some fun pictures of fun champagne jello shots to make. You can find a ton of pictures here for yourself. I was going to link them all to recipes but many of them didn’t have them unfortunately.

Luckily if you find one recipe that will tell you the proportions for making the jello shots well with champagne you’ll be able to duplicate it across all of the recipes.

If you found this post interesting also check out my post on jello shots for college students and 4th of July jello shots!

I took some time the other day to play with a fun new app called Waterlogue. With this app you upload photos, and it will transform them into watercolor paintings based on a number of predefined filters similar to Instagram.

I love this app. I found it through the Mashable best apps of the year post, and I can’t stop myself from playing with it. Take a look at some of the photos I generated below.
