Obsession Confession: The My Idol App

You guys. If you're obsessed with YouTube dermatology, then you may follow Dr. Sandra Lee on Instagram. Yesterday, she posted a video of herself from the app, where she was doing a little kung fu.

So, when you're using the App, you just take a photo of your face, and then the app does the rest. As you can see, I left my glasses on, s you can kind of see them under the ones I chose from the wardrobe library once I was inside. They also don't have a hair color that's really between blonde and brown, so I had to choose this one.

In the app, you can take still photos of your new 3-dimensional avatar, or you can actually get an animated short. Of course I did both. Behold! Below I've added the video for your enjoyment.


Now that you've seen this, I think you should go and download this app right now. It was free when I got it yesterday, so I'm hoping it still is when you read this.

Spinspiration: Nursery Duty

pink-nursery, pink-nursery-toys, pink-baby-toys
This morning I left poor Miranda's side for a couple of hours so I could go to Church and do my nursery duty. I held babies, was used as a toilet briefly, and told two little girls a story in which they were a dinosaur queen and princess. All in a day's work at the nursery.

I was lazy yesterday and didn't make any new artwork for today's post, so I decided I'd take a little inspiration from my surroundings in the Nursery while I was cleaning up the mess we'd made. Perhaps if you're making a mood board this week, you can take some inspiration (or spinspiration...whichever you choose.)

The first image is of a bunch of pink toys. Starting from the top left corner: A spiky rubber ball, a wooden train car, a "smart phone" which looks suspiciously like a phone I once had that didn't even have caller ID, some car keys, and a plastic cup.

Above is an image of where a child painted outside of the lines on the easel. Whoever this child is, I like their color sense.

Lastly I have a little still life of one of the cubby holes where the toys are kept. It's got some of the plastic dinnerware as well as the ball, and a basket full of plastic and rubber "foods."

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Spinstergram: My Very Own Baby Buffalo

I know I linked you to this photo yesterday, but in case you didn't click the link, I thought I'd share. Miranda was sick Thursday night, and at 3AM Friday morning, when I saw she wasn't getting any better, I took her to the vet. They decided she needed to get some fluid in her, and the best place to put it was between her shoulders. I felt so bad for my baby, but she does look like the cutest baby buffalo ever.

Yesterday when I came home to her, she was still sick, but with all the rest the medicine is helping her get, I'm hoping she'll improve soon. 

That's really all for today. I just had to share my cute baby buffalo. Happy Saturday!

#FAFATL: The Last One in June!

I don't know about you, Spinsters, but I'm having a hard time believing June is already almost over. Today, in fact, is the last Friday in June, and so it is the last Free Art Friday in this month. 

Above you'll see the three little magnets I'v made for today. If you live in the Atlanta area and are up for a scavenger hunt, you can follow my Spinstergram @Jonezee85. I believe one of my drops from last week is still lurking

If you check the Instagram before I post any magnets today, you'll have the strange experience of seeing Miranda during her 3AM trip to the Vet this morning. She wouldn't stop throwing up during the night, so they had to give her some fluid under her skin. She looked like a baby buffalo or the cutest hunchback you've ever seen

Enjoy your Friday!

Surprise! The Spinsterhood Diaries is now on Tumblr

Well, Spinsters, you made it through the wilderness. Today is not a photoshoppery of a celebrity. However, I did make this gif in photoshop. Today, we're going to talk about yet another way you can stalk me and all the creations of my fiendish little mind.

For a little while now, my friend Phoebe has been telling me I should make a Tumblr for my images and gifs. Well, this week, I actually made one! To view the Tumblr, I think you actually have to have a Tumblr account, but if you do have one, you can find The Spinsterhood Diaries by visiting Right now I've only got, like, four followers, so I welcome you to come check it out!

The Spinsterhood Diaries on Tumblr will be a bit different than it is here. Mainly, it'll be images and gifs with very little text. Also, the occasional sharing of other people's work. If that sounds like something you want to see, then head on over!

Now, I've been watching this gif for at least 15 minutes now, and I have to tell you that I'm very sorry if it's brought on a seizure for you. It's kind of giving me a headache.

Happy Thursday to you!

Photoshoppery: Ruby Rose

Ok, this is the last one, you guys. I promise. Tomorrow will be something different. On of OITNB's newest cast members, though, was too tantalizing to ignore. Of course I'm talking about one Miss Ruby Rose. I thought this first image was all too appropriate. She's holding a rose, after all.

I bet you didn't know that Ruby Rose was a triplet. Well, now you do. You also know what her hair looks like when it's not shaved on one side, and you like it. 


Ruby Rose and Matt McGorry bonded onset as McGorry is a Brony, and Ruby Rose fancies herself a Pegasister. This, of course, is an old photo. She's since lost some weight.

When Rose decided to get in shape, she first took it to the extreme. Now she's started doing more reps and less weight, and she's slimmed down and softened up. I think she looks much nicer. 

Lastly, we have this photo meant for Ruby Rose's school yearbook. This one was deemed wildly inappropriate and was replaced with her photo from the year before. 

Happy Wednesday!

Photoshoppery: Matt McGorry

matt-mcgorry-headshot, matt-mcgorry-oitnb
Spinsters, I think it's fair to say I'm going through a serious photoshoppery obsession right now. If you aren't enjoying it, I am so sorry. I promise to wrap it up soon. I will have to go cold turkey.

Today's victim is one Matt McGorry. If you watch Orange Is The New Black, you recognize him. The next sentence will contain a spoiler if you haven't finished the new season, so stop reading now if you don't want to know, and just look at the pictures. One of the things I am dying to know about this last season is if McGorry's character is gone forever. That seemed awfully abrupt and without too much explanation. I hope he's back for the next season, but I have no idea what to expect.

***Spoiler Over***

As you can see in the above photo, McGorry had to clean up his haircut significantly for his OITNB role. However, I can't say he's not pulling it off...

Here is one of the newest additions to McGorry's portfolio of headshot. He's trying to say here that he's willing to cash in on how hot being trans is right now. He's up for the challenge, and he is fierce.

He also wants you to know he can be pretty regal. And he can have really smooth, pale skin.

Lastly, here's a snapshot of McGorry at last year's Bronycon. You didn't see that coming, did you?

Well, I Hope you've enjoyed this little trip through McGorry's life. I hope to see more of him during the next season of OITNB.
