I was looking on shuttersisters a few weeks (maybe months?) ago and saw this cool link. By making a little contraption to put over your lens you can control the shape of the blurry parts of your photo. I certainly haven't figured out the best technique to do it great, but it's kind of a fun thing to mess around with. In this photo, if you look closely you can see little heart-shapes in the background.

So I just had a baby girl and after having a boy I have been so excited to put hairbows on her. But I'm living in Utah for the summer and anything cute is way over my budget. And the current style here looks like moms put wedding bouquets on their babies' heads-- a little too big for my taste. So, I went to the craft store and bought some stretchy lace and sewed a cute little ribbon on it. I love it and have a few yards of lace left over to make more hairbows in different colors.
