We’re seeing red at the library, and no, we’re not angry!
Pretty soon, we’ll have more exciting photos to share….stay tuned!
Once upon a time, large print books were scarce. And the ones that were available had drab covers with extra large fonts. For people who had vision problems, or just wanted something a little easier to read as they aged, large print books were an okay option–not great, but okay.
Times have changed! Not only are we able to get many of the latest best-sellers and new releases in large print format, but the covers are exciting and often exactly the same as the regular print versions.
Finally, a Frivolous Friday post! It always amazes me when I see creative people who make fantastic things out of simple principles or basic materials. Khoa Phan is one of those people. He creates unbelievable stop-motion videos using not much more than paper and a camera. He even recycles his materials to use later!
He started his wonderful videos after using Vine, a mobile app owned by Twitter that allows users to create and post video clips. He wanted to do something more creative, and got to work on his first Vine. But it was his second one that caught the attention of the Vine creators, who selected it as a favourite. After that, he started getting lots of followers and hits to his creations. He’s now gone on to create more than 100+ vines, many with a positive theme like “have a nice day”.
His videos are also now starting to get the interest from brand names, such as Coca Cola. Who wouldn’t want a creative genius to do a fun video for them? If you want to read a wonderful interview with Khoa Phan and find out how he does these videos, here’s a fantastic article!
Insanely beautiful and very trendy, these fun little note cards at the great little website called Caravan are FREE! All you need to do is download and print them onto your own cardstock. While you’re there, you can also read their creative blog and maybe be inspired to do something special this weekend! Have fun!
