Because Sharing is Caring

First off, I just want to say that my heart goes out to those affected by the tragedy that happened in Boston.  I was ironing my girls' uniforms when I heard it on the news this morning.  As soon as I heard "bombing" and "Boston", my heart dropped.  I immediately called my parents who assured me that my brother was safely away from the area.  (See, I do look out for you, little brother!)

Events like the Boston Marathon Bombing and the Tumon Stabbings just blow my mind.  I really cannot understand how a human being can deliberately cause so much harm.  I just don't get it.  When I see someone hurting or suffering, my heart breaks.  I would never wish that kind of harm on anyone no matter how angry or spiteful I was feeling.  It just does not make sense to me.

With all the hate and anguish going on in the world right now I thought I'd spread some love and aloha around by sharing a few things with you today.  It's like show and tell here today.

So my lovely Instagram followers (@frikkenduckie hey hey!) got a peek at this image last week and because sharing is caring, I thought I'd share with you how I made it.  It was a very long and tedious process to do this so if you're ready to take on that challenge then listen up on what you gotta do.


Okay, you ready?  Alright.  Click on this link, which will take you to the Texter App.  Then all you have to do is draw like you're using paint.  You can change the text, text color, background color, text size, and angle in the control box.  The long and tedious part comes when you're trying to figure out what you want to say and what you want to draw.

I hope you take advantage of this app because it really is AWESOME.  If you do create something, please share it with me!  I'd love to see it and I may even show it off here for you too!

Oh, and before you go and start getting all creative, I've got one more thing to share with you!  See this gorgeous gal right here?



That's Colleen and she is a makeup blogging goddess!  She creates such amazing looks and she is a genuinely amazing person.  Every time I visit her blog I am in awe of every flawless look she creates.  She is so inspiring and I really encourage you to check out her blog, Vanity and Vodka.  Like, now!

Oh, and because she's so awesome, she's actually having a giveaway right now that I highly recommend you enter.  I've already entered so go now before it ends!  And even though I know you awesome readers of Frikken Duckie are amazingly genuine and supportive, I just have to make sure that you don't just enter her giveaway to win free stuff.  We all know I love free stuff just as much as the next Asian, but I love my friends and followers more - so please don't enter if you're gonna be fake about it.

Till tomorrow, my pretties...

♥ Duckie.
