Along with open-toed shoes, sneezing fits and the ice cream truck man, spring is officially back, baby!
As many of us do these days, I spend a good chunk of my time in front of my computer, and my work day usually prevents me from experiencing beautiuful spring weather at the most ideal times of the afternoon. Have no fear, though… I’ve got a solution for those of you who are in the same boat.
Whether you’re in school and stuck inside writing a paper or you’ve ventured out into the big, bad working world, you shouldn’t have to be trapped indoors on days when the birds are chirping and the sky is crystal clear. To battle your indoor blues, here are 3 tips and tricks that might help you add some freshness to your day:
1) Head on over to PageCraze for a bright new browser skin that screams ‘springtime’! If you have to be on the Internet, why not surf with some pretty petals on your screen? (Trust me…it’ll help you forget that you’re inside.) Check out this pretty Cherry Blossom skin:
2) While you’re visiting PageCraze, be sure to grab a springy layout for your Facebook page. I’m in LOVE with this one. It reminds me of Sunday mornings in April.
3) Last, but not least, show off your seasonal style with a bright, bold Facebook cover from CoverFanatic. Here are two of my favorites for this time of year:
Well, my duties are done here. Hopefully this helps you all to add some pep in your step (and some color to your monitor) to help get more excited about spring. I’m off to catch the ice cream truck…
Pardon my venting for a moment, but bear with me…I promise I’m going somewhere with this.
While I was doing my usual Facebook perusing the other night, I noticed that a TON of my Facebook friends have awful taste… not only in men (trust me), but in their choice of Timeline cover, too. The majority of my friends have switched over to the new and improved Facebook profile, where you can display a giant cover image on the top of your page, but every single cover I’ve seen is fuglier than the next.
It’s sad, but true.
The types of Timeline covers I’ve seen are as follows:
- Photos of my friends kissing their significant others (please, spare us).
- Plain covers that consist of nothing but one single, drab color. BORING.
- Super busy designs that make me so dizzy, I feel like I might need one of those “Help me, I’ve fallen” necklaces.
- Babies. Is it me or does EVERY Mom have a giant photo of their child? It’s time to branch out, Mom.
After watching so many of my friends fall victim to the “Facebook Covers: What Not to Wear” plague, I ended up doing them all a solid by sending them to CoverFanatic.com.
CoverFanatic is a brand new site with TONS of awesome Facebook covers for EVERYONE. You can showcase your personal style with abstract designs, hilariously sarcastic quotes, sassy sayings, tranquil illustrations and much, much more.
Here are some of my personal faves:
For the creatives:
For the class clowns:
For the nature lovers:
For my girls:
For the guy’s guy:
Anyway, you get the gist. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll check out CoverFanatic ASAP and spare your Facebook friends the misery of another painfully boring cover photo! If people are going to judge you based on your cover, you might as well look damn good!
Can you belive it’s already time for Mr. Groundhog to make his appearance tomorrow? February snuck up on me, with much help from all of you guys- our loyal and awesome Webfetti fans! Time flies when you’re having fun, right?

Put down the pint of ice cream and step away from your ex’s Facebook page. We’ve got something better for you to do here!

Wishing you all a VERY Merry Christmas from good ol’ NYC! I hope your day is filled with love, laughter, fun and family (oh, and maybe some good presents if you were lucky enough to land yourself on Santa’s ”nice” list)!
Before I get back to my family, friends and Christmas morning shenanigans (Mmmm, Mom’s sticky buns!), I wanted to remind you to head over to Webfetti and check out the wonderful Christmas graphics, glitter and smileys. Forgot to grab a gift for someone on your list? No worries- we’ve got you covered! Send some jpy and cheer with any of our adorable holiday extras.
Have a fabulous day and Merry Christmas to you and yours. MWAH!
P.S. The greatest gift I received this year was being able to call you all my loyal friends! I couldn’t be more grateful to have you all and I thank my lucky stars each and every day.
Can you believe it’s already December 23rd?! Christmas is only two days away, and I must say I’ve been quite the busy bee this season. Between baking Christmas cookies, searching for gifts, wrapping presents and decorating my apartment, it’s safe to say I’ve earned my elf license. (I’m not even sure that’s a real thing, but even so- I deserve it!)
In between all of the hustle and bustle, I’ve made sure to take some “me” time by relaxing (and laughing so hard it hurts), thanks to HolidayLaughs. Not only can you “Be a Santa” by adding your face (or another’s) to a Santa, elf or sexy Santa’s helper body, but then you can watch it dance around and do a little Christmas jig. (Go Santa, it’s your birthday…)
Post it to your friends’ Facebook walls to give them a holiday chuckle (or to your own wall if you want people to laugh along with you). But that’s not all! You can also “Nutcracker” yourself with “Crack My Nuts,” play Christmas games, find favorite holiday recipes and more!
Don’t forget to head over and check it out before Christmas- I’m telling you, it’s the perfect, uplifting break from all those Grinches out there! Merry Christmas to you. Talk to you soon my little elves!
Long time, no talk! I’ve been SO busy getting ready for the holidays, I’m about to make the shopping mall my new permanent address. Between the mad rush for a parking space, the pushing and shoving to hop on line and the screaming children on Santa’s lap, it’s really easy to get overwhelmed and flustered during this time of year when we really should be enjoying it.
Thankfully, just as I thought I was reaching my breaking point yesterday (after 4 hours of hunting for the perfect scarf and one hour of waiting online), I got the best pick-me-up. My friend, Kirsten, sent me a text message that said, “Can’t wait to see you for Christmas and give you kisses under the mistletoe! Pass it on to someone you will kiss under the mistletoe!” That wasn’t the best part, though. Along with the text, she sent me this adorable little guy: Is he not the CUTEST?! So, I did as she said and sent it along to all of MY loved ones who I can’t wait to kiss! I suggest you do the same! Kirsten was able to send me this awesome Christmas smiley because she has the Smiley Central iPhone App, where you can get special holiday packs for less than a dollar each!
Spread the love this holiday season and prevent another one of your friends or family members from Christmas overload by sending some sweet, festive smileys from your iPhone. With Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s just around the bend, you’ve got nothing to lose!
Besides…you won’t have to hurt anyone for a parking space in the process. Cha-Ching!
Hey everyone! It’s been such a long time since I’ve last talked to you, but don’t worry…I’m making it a point to be sure I check in with you more often. You’ve been missed! I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween and got some giant bags of candy. And now that we’ve all had our sugar fills and we’ve retired our costumes, it’s time for the next big holiday- Thanksgiving!
November is here and it’s time to gear up for Turkey Day, so I’ve got just the thing to keep you all occupied and pumped up for your upcoming feast! Webfetti is fully stocked with Thanksgiving Graphics, Layouts and more, as usual, so be sure to head over and give your favorite social pages some festive flair.
On top of that, Webfetti also has a fun, new toolbar for your every holiday need. Right now it’s jam-packed with Thanksgiving puzzles, games and brainteasters, as well as fun photo tools where you can add your face to a dancing turkey or add some post-feast chub to your cheeks with ‘Stuff My Face’ (which is quite possibly the funniest thing I’ve ever seen)! In addition, the HolidayLaughs toolbar gives you instant access to Facebook, Thanksgiving recipes, radio and more! What’s not to love?
Since I’m entertaining the family for the holidays this year, I have to go prepare for my cooking class! Be sure to check out HolidayLaughs and let me know what you think about it!
O-M-G! It has been FOREVER since I’ve talked to you guys! I’m so sorry that it’s taken so long, but I’m back in action and boy, have I missed you all!
It’s been a great couple of months since we last spoke, but instead of focusing on the past, let’s chat about what you can look forward to…Halloween! One of my favorite times of the year is upon us, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s almost time to bust out my decorations and famous candy assortment for the kiddies, but until then, I have a few weeks to prepare for the festivities. How so? I’m glad you asked…
Webfetti just came out with a brand new product that is the PERFECT Halloween. It’s called the FestiveBar and it’s got tons of fun for you and your friends. ‘Zombifier’ is a tool that allows you to make a zombie out of any face you choose. Then, you can send it and share it to your spook-tacular friends. It’s frightening, but so freakin’ fun (oh, and free)! It looks like something straight out of a horror flick.
Looking for something a bit less creep-tastic? Head to ‘Bone Dancer’, where you can add a face to one of several fun, freaky bodies and then make it move and groove to several different types of music.
For a change of pace (and a fast one, at that) play ‘Witch Freeze’! Test your trigger finger to see how fast you can be before witches fly off into the night.
Check it out for yourself, guys! It’s a heck of a time and the perfect way to get you and your friends pumped for the upcoming holiday! Let me know what you think!
Can you believe it’s almost September already?! Where has the summer gone? My guess is that I was either too busy sipping fruity cocktails on the beach or shopping to my little heart’s content to pay attention to the time. Ahhhh…life is good.
Anyway, I’m so sorry I’ve been out of touch with you all for so long. I’ve had a fab summer here at Webfetti and I can’t wait to let you all in on what we’ve got in store for you in the upcoming months. Of course I can’t tell you YET, because that would ruin all the fun, but I’ll fill you in soon. Promise!
Are you all still enjoying our awesome Apps? How about the Letter Lounge and Photo Editor? Now that a new month is upon us, we’ve got plenty to keep you occupied (and away from homework!) on Webfetti. Also, it’s Back-to-School time and we’re your go-to destination for fun Smileys. Check them out! Which of these is YOUR fave school Smiley?
Let me know! I’ll catch up with you later in the week, guys! For now, I’m off to grab myself some coffee… peace!
