Cool photo tools for the holidays
Over our last few outings to local fairs to show off our stuff from urbanbiscuit, we’ve noticed that people liked some of our t-shirts the best.
While we’re trying to figure out a better way to pick some good shirts, we wanted you to tell us!
I put together a quick Dog T-Shirt voting booth to help!
Election Day Tomorrow! What your dog should be wearing.
The holidays are quickly approaching, and we needed to get Urbanbiscuit into the holiday spirit. I started looking around for some online tools that could help make a great holiday banner to put on our store homepage. After searching the web, I came across this free site that has some really creative ways for sharing your photos.
In the end, I spent a few hours on the Photofunia site to make our holiday banner image. Photofunia has a ton of really clever background for your photos. You can use photos from the web, or upload photos from your computer and put them on backgrounds like a billboard, or even in a magazine.
Here are a few more free tools for having some real fun with your holiday pictures:
Budget design tips for online businesses
Tomorrow is a big day, Election Day 2012. Sounds almost like a science fiction movie. I preparation for Election Day, I was wondering if there is some kind of official dress code enforced at the polling stations. It turns out that each state has the final say in how a dress code is enforced at local polling stations. There’s a good article about both sides of the issue that discusses the possibility that dressing in your political swag might be considered passive electioneering.
In any case, when you’re watching the election results begin to pour in, you can wear whatever you like, and you can have your furry pal help support your chose n candidate.
A Disneyland Hack to keep your kids from getting lost
Just read this great article about budget resources for online businesses. When we recently started Urbanbiscuit, we asked one of Jen’s friends for help. She did a great job doing the logo. It went through a few variations, and ended up the way it looks today. I’ve been working on the homepage slide images, but I’m not a professional graphic artist, just a photoshop dabbler. I’m going to follow this guide and start figuring out where our budget can add some real bang for our buck in terms of graphic design.
5 Facts about Labrador Retreivers
Disney. Took the kids and the inlaws to Disneyland last week and had a blast! When we got to the park in the morning on the first day of the trip, I wanted to make sure that we all were clear and consistent on a protocol if one of the kids got lost in the park. Disney can of course be overwhelming and the kids could wander off and get lost in a blink of an eye.
On the tram ride from the parking lot to the park entrance, I snapped a photo just to make sure I had a picture of each of the girls and what they were wearing, just in case. I can never remember what they’re wearing.
After we entered the park, I went to one of the small concession stands near the entrance and asked the people working there what is the best advice for finding your child if she should get lost.
The woman at the concession stand had a very clever idea, that I wanted to share. She gave us three “1st time visit” buttons to pin on the girls’ shirts. She also gave me a sharpie marker, instructing me to write each girls name and my cellphone number on the inside of the button that would only be visible if they showed it to someone.
Fortunately, we had a great time and no one got lost! But that’s a tip that I’ll be following on future disneyland trips.
Anyone else have some good hacks for disneyland?
