It's called Picture Collage Maker and you will find it at www.picturecollagesoftware.com
The simple collage on the left was created with the free version however the fee based versions have a LOT more tools and options to play with. There are a ton of templates, you can put picture frames around your images, choose from a varity of masks, play with color, backgrounds and shapes and add text or clip art.You can print your collage, email it and convert it to a jpeg.
There are so many ways to use Picture Collage Maker – here are a few:
1. Use for creating a vision board
3. Create a collection of images from an event to use on a thankyou card or newsletter follow-up
5. Create a customized calendar (there are some cool calendar templates)
6. Create a collage image for a blog post or maybe an ebook cover
7, Use for scrapbooking or greeting cards (templates for this too).
A creative outlet and great way to create coaching structures and reminders. It's fun and they offer a free 15 day trial on the fee based versions – FYI – you do get a watermark on the free trial version.
MindMeister has been around for awhile but they have just launched a new and improved version.
They have updated the visuals, you can now share your mindmap via email and twitter, it's easier to use and there are more templates. One of the cool features of Mindmeister is that it can be used collaboratively. Depending on the package you get, you can have a team working on the same mindmap in real time. Mindmeister is now also available for the ipad, iphone and android platforms. Very cool.

There is a great new webzine for women called girlphyte.com.
It’s all about women helping women and redefining success. It’s packed with
interesting articles, and resources on every topic imaginable. You can even
find an article by yours truly. It’s called Playing For Success Not only is it a fun site to visit – I would encourage the solo-preneurs out there to explore opportunities to write an article for them while they are still new.
I rarely go for the plain old postage stamps. I like the process of choosing something unique. What cause or message do I want to champion, what colors am drawn to. I’m often disappointed with my choices so when I learned from an artist friend of mine that you can create your own stamps at stamps.com, I had to go check it out.
It’s true! You can add a photo of your choice to a 39 cent stamp. I could put the image posted here on a stamp. What a cool way to market just about anything; an idea or message, your art, your logo, a new product. You could use stamps to spread joy or shift the dominant paradigm or….
Go to www.stamps.com, click on the green tab that says photo stamps and experiment!
I’d love to hear about ideas you come up with.
