it's a snap

A few weeks ago I was introduced to a new iPhone app by a couple of my most app-savy friends [you know who you are]. Instagram! If you have an iPhone and haven't experienced this freebie yet, you've got to! It's so cool!!!! An extremely easy way to share snapshots of your day and see the colors that fill others' lives:

So you get an idea, here's a sampling of my week.

sherbert
: rainbow sherbert = new obsession :

new grass
: new grass! thank goodness for a rainy week :

thank you!
: lots of thank you notes! :

saturday morning
: a quiet saturday morning filled with nutella crepes! :

wonder woman
: even Wonder Woman needs a hand to hold on occasion :

Normally I'm not a huge fan of photo filters, but the ones included with this app seem to really work, transforming ordinary photos into something special. Already aboard the Instagram train or ready to join? Find us under the username anopensketchbook. We'd love to follow you!

Oh, it's Edgar's fishies! I love them.

I love these photos! Since I take really poor photos, I actually love the filters on my iPhone. Oh well :)

btw, I'm obsessed with rainbow sherbet right now, too. Big time. Yum. Yours looks better than the one at our grocery store- it's not so much rainbow as three different flavors of sherbet chunked together in a big blob in a container. But it still tastes pretty amazing!

Yes! The violinist of one of my favorite bands tweets images like this all the time and I had no clue what app he was using to do it. I've been wondering for weeks. You have just made my life a little more complete!

fishy-fishy! Edgar! Good stuff!

These are great! I'm seeing some amazing instagram photos. I really think I need to embrace that app.

I had rainbow sherbert last night, too. It was amazing.

Oh you make me wish that I were smart enough for a smart phone!!! I had one for awhile and I just didn't dig it. I'm much more of a 1999 flip phone kinda gal...love the pics.

I love the candid photos! Filters are so neat! The fish painting is beautiful too!

Ooh... I've been thinking about either getting an Iphone OR an Ipod Touch for awhile, lately. You're adding another reasonon why it would be extremely cool to get one! ^-^

Lovely pictures! :-)

I love these photo filters and the picture of wonder woman! how sweet. I have to admit I usually get jealous when I see kids dressed up in costumes or pj's on a regular day. ;)

Are these filters available for non-iphone users?

Good question Kim. Unfortunately, I'm not sure. Might be worth googling 'Instagram'...
