The Perks Of Being... Dexter

Dexter loves to snuggle and is always polite. Sometimes he gets a little too excited when it comes to walks outside but it's alright: he loves the outdoors. He is interested in chasing cats not because he doesn't like them, but because he wants to make friends. He is shy and always waits for someone else to make the first move. But he is romantic, too, always ready to share a stick he has found or his toy, just to impress a lady.

Dexter's hobby (aside from reading) is... sleeping. Although he has his own, he often falls asleep on somebody else's pillow. Sometimes he likes to sleep on books, too. I guess he's a true bookworm adventurer.
Funny fact about him is that his nose changes colours. It is usually dark brownish, but during winter it gets pink. The resemblance with Rudolf the reindeer is amazing.

Dexter loves to try out new things: food, hobbies, dance steps. He's a little sceptic at first, but soon gets the hang out of things. He likes to listen to the piano and sings along, although he's a little afraid of trying to play himself. He likes to dance, but he gets bored a little too soon. Oh, and he's very good at playing hide and seek, too. A real partystarter.
We've been inseparable the whole summer. Running around, playing in puddles, taking pictures or just watching TV. Today he got a little upset when he saw me packing suitcases again. I'm leaving for Vienna tomorrow and I will see  him only on camera. I guess I'll have to play in the rain alone till December. But oh well - I've got many memories and pictures to keep me warm! :)

    1. Thank you, Erika!
      My profile picture is actually the easiest thing to make and people are really surprised when I reveal the secret! :) You only need 5 minutes in photoshop and you're done! Open the photo you want to edit. Choose the elliptical marquee tool and press shift while you drag it, to make a perfect circle in the centre. Then press ⌘+T and start rotating it till it distorts the original photo. Repeat this with smaller and smaller circles inside the one you've already made and... ta-dah! You're done! I've played a lot with forms, too - you could try using triangles or squares or whatever comes to mind! See this old post of mine for more inspiration: http://lilycupcake.blogspot.co.at/2011/12/puzzle-pieces.html
      If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

An old myth says that if you leave from a blog without sharing your opinion about a post, a little raccoon will sneak in your room tonight and it will steal your favourite pair of socks! Beware!
