Just saw this ad for a college and thought the brush in the lower left corner looked a lot like one of our organic flower brushes.
I tried comparing it to all the brushes in that set but none look like a match… it still looks like the style though. Odd. It would be pretty cool if a college used one of my brushes
Been doing a lot of Squidoo and Zazzle.. I’m working on transferring the old Snazzify shop from cafepress (it’s all on separate basic shops at this point but I finally decided to join zazzle and move stuff over since their premium shops are free) to a new shop on Zazzle also called Snazzify. Same designs, new look.
You can support Snazzify by joining our facebook page. There was a facebook page for Smiley Helper, but I haven’t been updating so I decided to just focus on the Snazzify facebook group.

Hello! As you can probably tell by the lack of updates I’m back in school and busy with classes, and also college applications for the next few months. It’s an interesting experience to have to write about (in the form of the actual application or the essays) what you’ve accomplished in your life when you’re still so young.
In the meantime, here is a website with a pretty layout: Goodbytes.
Now back to statistics…

I also started school yesterday. I’m excited for this year but I am just waiting for all the homework and commitments to come crashing in. So far it’s only been two days and at least it doesn’t seem bad so far, while last year I was already dying on the first day because our teachers scared us by talking about everything we would have to do. But so far, it’s ok. I’ll probably decide within the next couple weeks how this school year will turn out.
Did anyone else start school yet? How is it so far?

Here is part three of the guide to snazzing up wordpress: Comment Plugins.
I’ve been reading Uglies lately by Scott Westerfeld. It’s an interesting, fast-paced adventure, and it makes you think. It’s about a dytopian society that makes everyone beautiful when they turn sixteen so there isn’t any discrimination, but the book shows that there are definite problems with that idea. Has anyone read it?
These comment plugins for your WordPress blog will add spam protection and new functionality to the comments of your blog posts.

Got back from my trip a couple days ago. It was great.
I just finished day 1 of a six day guide to snazzing up wordpress. A new part will be released every day. Part one is about beautiful themes.
I got my school schedule today… ugh. I don’t want to go back in a week. :[ I couldn’t get one of the classes I wanted, but I guess it makes my schedule easier with the change. (more time for website updates?!? haha yeah right ;___; ) Hmm.. Overall it’s all right and will be a very interesting year.
Will make part 2 and add an update from Callie tomorrow.
So you’ve just installed WordPress as the blogging system on your site, or maybe you’ve had it for a while. But you really want to get the most out of this powerful content management system (CMS).
For part one, here are fifteen beautiful free WordPress themes that can get your blog off to the right start. Just pick a theme, download it, and install.
