Get ready to waste a good hour.

My friend, Christine, introduced me to Dreamscope where you can add filters to your photos.  Not normal filters though.  Stuff like, “What would I look like if I was made out of gummi bears?” or “What if the world turned into raspberries?”  An hour later and I have a million variations of me.

Get ready to waste a good hour of your life.  But it’s for creative reasons, so I’m pretty sure it counts as art therapy.

  22. So I was cleaning my cat’s nipples last night, because they gave her a kitty abortion, so she still has bigish nipples, and they sometimes get crusty. But cleaning them puts her into a happy purring sleep and relaxes my OCD need to clean/pick at things so it’s a win/win, except for my husband who thinks it’s weird and gross. And last night she fell asleep happy, OCD was satisfied, and no one knew.

    This has nothing to do with the filters. Just throwing it up here.

  94. I’m a little late reading this, but I’m commenting anyway.:) My husband found out about Dreamscope not too long after our cat Frisco suddenly died in his sleep shortly before he was two years old. We had plucked him out of a bush when he was about two months old squealing every time he heard one of our cats meow. He led us a merry chase, even so.

    Anyway. We took a picture of him, put it through Dreamscope, saved it, messed with the size and resolution in Photoshop, then had a canvas print made at Walgreens. Frisco was a special cat, and now we have a beautiful piece of art to help us remember him.
