Switching Over, Over.

This week has been absolutely crazy! So much to do, so little time! Let’s do a quick run down of all of my ingeniousness this week.

So many Video assignments

Zoolander-esque Video Assignment – 3 stars

A Letter to My 16 Year Old Self – 4 stars

Today it’s all about me – 2 stars

The Ultimate Destination – 3 stars

Little words, Big Meanings – 3 stars

The interview

This was by far my most time consuming thing to do this week!


So glad my girls and I decided to do one final HOORAH  for the agency. Looking forward to making some magic again. THE RETURN OF THE MANOIRPULATORS.

Weekly Daily creates

My favorite creation from this week:


THe 10 Comments!



Daily Creations!

Daily Create #1 – An Inspirational Poster

For this daily create, I chose one of my favorite pictures of my dogs and added a quote that pertained to dogs and life, I then used the picture and edited it on PicMonkey to overlap the words to the picture.


Daily Create #2 – Tree Art

For this assignment, I chose a picture that I took in Arizona this past summer of “The Thinking Tree.” I had already thought of this photo as artsy so I decided to mirror image it using a photo software editor and then I did some contrast coloring to make it even more abstract.


Daily Create #3 - Talking to a Stranger

In this daily create, I wrote a little excerpt from a conversation I had with someone at the gym today asking about my workout routine!



Tooting my Own Horn

2 stars – Today it’s all about me

As the name suggests, this is a video talking alllll about myself. Yep, that’s right it’s all about me and my likes about myself… perhaps even a confession.. shh… it’s top secret.

For this I used my agency laptop and recorded myself using recording tools such as photobooth. Hope you enjoy my bragging session.


The Return of the MaNOIRpulators

As the name of the post suggests, I, Sylvia Stone, and my fellow MaNOIRpulators: Edie Waz, Margaret Pinualt, and Jewel James will be returning to make a debut once again! We are all very excited about this decision to reconnect and hope we can woo the DS106 world once again with our charm. Let’s be honest here, the digital world would not be the same without a group of strong minded women as part of it’s backbone. Can’t wait to tackle the world, the digital world that is, with my girls once again!

Ultimate Dream Destination

3 Stars – Dream Vacation

Obviously, every stylish, vivacious, and classy broad like me needs to go on crazy vacations every once in a blue moon. My personal dream destination would to be to get out of this crazy Chicago town and go West to somewhere warmer!

For this assignment, I used some pictures of LA through a google web engine search and used a youtube to mp3 converter to get the sound “California Gurls” by Katy Perry to overlap my pictures.

Little Words, Big Meanings

3 Stars – Words, Pictures, and a Story

I thought using some meaningless words would not get the point across properly until I started thinking about myself “WWSSD” aka what would Sylvia Stone do? Then I got to thinking about my girls, my maNOIRpulator girls and our shenanigans. So the words I picked were (1) Crazy (2) Men (3) Get (4) Murdered (5) When (6) They (7) Sleep! Then of course, my final touch was adding a logo for my crew, the MaNOIRpulators. I extracted my music of course from YouTube, I’m a write not a musician, don’t get your thoughts twisted there, Big Boy.
