Fun With Fiverr

I discovered Fiverr.com and had to have something done!  This site has many different artists that showcase their style. If you want a portrait, cartoon, logo design, or any other piece of art done that is truly unique, this is the place to shop.  I chose artist Natasha who does Nagel-Esque style pictures.  I love this style because it reminds me of an art deco era from the 1920’s and 1930’s.  Nagel, the artist, would take a photo and work down to simplify and remove lines until it was at the flattest and most simple form, thus leaving only those features he thought to be the strongest and most important. He is also known for an exaggeration of the lips, which makes for a fun look.

 The fees begin at $5.  That is what Natasha charged for my Nagel style picture.  I think I will have a retro cartoon style done next to use on my social media pages.

Hanging On The Moon

Synonymous with “Best thing since sliced bread.” “Hung the moon” is an idiom that is used commonly to explain how great something or someone is, but I can’t find where it originated. I went to Carolina Beach with my hubby this week.  He said you can hang on the moon and it will remind you that I hung the moon for you.

If you know how it originated, you can let me know.  This moon I’m hanging on is right around the corner from Britt’s Doughnuts on the Boardwalk.  Remember that place ~ where 6 is not enough!!
