Blackberry or Blueberry?

Have I expressed my love for this little do-dad? Even though I don't have the Internet plan for it you can still do a lot of stuff on the computer and download and then you just hook the BB up to the computer and then zap it over, eazy peazy! There are thousands of things you can DL for this thing.. Themes, wallpaper, software, games, and ringtones.. They even have a program you can get to make your own themes.. which I was super excited about until I started DLing this stuff and learned that there was a shit load of stuff you need.. Maybe this is something Kim can help me with since she's the computer lady :) But when I got up to 4 *different* programs and learned that I needed other stuff, I gave up.. But it did make me a little sad because the program itself seems pretty straight forward and easy. However, I like to mess with things and putz with them and figure them out.. Oh well! Moving on, I have two picture both I took with the BB.

The first one is a shirt that I made using an experimental technique.. Maybe not but something I came up with.. only to find that they sell an actual product for this.. But anyways, I wanted to make something on a shirt look like it was spray painted. And since I'm a cheap ass I thought " hey, I'll just get a little spray bottle and water down the fabric paint and spray it on there". And when I went to Michael's to use my coupon I saw that they sell Spray fabric paint but it was $4.99 (again the cheapness) so I used my 40% off coupon and spent .81 on a little spray bottle. And the skull is something that my sister cut out for me on her Cricut (I like skulls!!) and I traced it and cut it out of the freezer paper and then I just watered down the paint and then I ripped a hole in some newspaper and then sprayed away. I was so happy because I didn't need to center the stencil or plan it out or anything it was very exciting!! The only thing is that I took it outside to spray and it was windy and newspaper is very light.. so that was kind of bad planning, but overall it was pretty cool. I haven't washed it yet, I mean it might just all wash out! I also made an Elmo shirt for Owen, that one took planning and 4 coats of white to cover up the red. You'll have to hop over to my Sister's blog to see that.
The second picture is of Owen playing outside. In the background is his wonderful sandbox!
Pretty often when I watch him during the week we play out in the sandbox, it's been a long time since I've had a sandbox. But I always play in the sand with him, like using the damp sand to make shapes (which are immediately smashed) but it's very relaxing to just mess with the sand.
Hmm.. I guess I don't have anything else.. I'm pretty behind on the blogging and I don't really have a specific reason.. Well, I hope you all have a great day and great days until I blog again..

Oh my god, does he have the most beautiful little face or what!! What a cutie. He must adore you to death!

You know, I do all this programming-stuff at work, but I don't even have a BB, just a little razr phone (pink, of course!) I guess I am behind-the-times!! But if you do have a question I *might* be able to help... I would love to try. (At least I have an Ipod, I guess! ha.)

Hope you have a great & sunny weekend!!

Yeah, that is one cute kid! He he he...
There ya go, whizzing by me with the technology! It would take me the rest of my life to figure out a blackberry.
