Friday Inspiration: Choward’s Old Timey Candy

What kind of name is Choward’s? Why does this look like a package of cough drops? Stop asking questions and just eat them.

I picked these up at the hardware store earlier and was a little too excited about my find. The packaging is really beautiful. It was an impulse purchase (as candy most often is) and I devoured them all. It’s basically a pack of sweet tarts, except you only have the lemon kind. These are a little less sweet than Sweet Tarts, which is nice, because if you eat them quickly (like I did) you won’t get a tummy ache.

Foto Fun with iPhone Apps: TiltShift Generator

A while back a friend of mine told me about the wonders of the Toy Camera application for the iPhone. I bought it immediately (only $1.99!). This app basically lets you edit your photos without uploading them to the computer and prettying them up in Photoshop. You can add vintage color effects and change the saturation. Is Toy Camera a replacement for my beloved Photoshop? No way. But it’s a fun little tool to impress your friends and/or lovers.

The new app that I discovered today that I really like is TiltShift Generator (aka Fake DSLR), brought to us by the creators of  Toy Camera (Art & Mobile). Only 99 cents, this application allows you to change the contrast and brightness as well as the saturation of your photos, and add either a radial or linear blur. Kinda neat. Kinda fun. I think I got my money’s worth.
