10 Fun, Artsy, Interactive and Interesting Sites on the Web

I was surfing as we all do occasionally when we need to take a break and recently discovered one site that really enhances one's surfing experience. And upon recently finding stumbleupon.com my surfing days are refreshed with interesting websites I would never have found any of the the sites mentioned below using conventional searching terms. It is with stumbleupon.com that I found all of the following sites.

If you are interested, check it out, select your preferences and start stumbling - I found amazing food sites, art sites, photography and funny sites I couldn't keep bookmarking them. You are allowed to rate a site as well. It is also a social network, but frankly I haven't been feeling particularly social as of late (very anti-Divaliscious of me I know), but at least I am sharing a few things with you. You can also pre-select what sort of subject matter you would like to stumble upon.

Try it, it's free and fun.

I will try and create themes for my search results that I share here in my many blogs. Please note, no money is made by me for pushing any of these websites or by clicking on them either - a new window will open when you do click. I just thought they were cool enough to share - simple as that.

Today's theme: 10 Fun, Artsy, Interactive and/or Interesting Sites on the Web
  1. Just in case you didn't know what to do with a one dollar bill, here's one thing you can do - though this would be fun with a $100- bill as a gift to a nephew whose been extra good this year..The Shirt

  2. Think you know a killer just by looking at their photograph? Just by looking at these images, can you correctly select which of these are serial killers vs. serious computer programmers? This site is calling this their killerquiz.

  3. Is your mouth full of food? Next time you feel like you need an extra piece of cheesecake, think of this chipmunk - funny and cute but oh so real photos: Chipmunk eating beyond belief.

  4. Need something a little extra different for your artistic kid whose studying science? Then check out this, it was an interesting art project combining artists of all levels creating a periodic table of elements - as each artist has an element they chose, they then had to create a print representing the element. If you are interested, then check out the Printmaking Periodic Table of Elements Project.

  5. Want a different life? Look at this then, and take a peek at one person's experiences at becoming Hunter S. Thompson's personal assistant. Warning: hard language used. I was a little shocked and learned I was and am very happy with the life I do have - no need to change - but if you feel your voyeur coming on and out a bit...check out Gonzo Girl - I was Hunter S. Thompson's Assistant.

  6. Need a reminder? This site will not only remind you, they will nag you via email at semi-unpredictable intervals. Do you need some help for stopping smoking, eating better, etc. then this is for you. For nag-lovers everywhere...Get Your Nag On!

  7. Need something artsy to do with the kids? This site has it all. Great site for older kids too when they have to babysit younger kids... simply print out the project and its directions, and voila - something almost anyone can do with paper or fabric. Site is called Yasutomo.com

  8. Ok This one is fun - we have all heard of Mr. Potato, but have you heard of Mr. Picasso Head? I didn't think so. This site allows you to create your own Picasso's using pre-selected strokes and images of Picasso's own hand to create unique one-of-kind art - safe for all ages...Mr. Picasso Head

  9. This is yet another fun interactive site allowing you to create art for
    art sake
    . Safe for kids everywhere. Have fun selecting colors and types
    of strokes and watch your finished art be re-drawn too. You can save
    your art and look at others' art works. Artpad.com

  10. Have you ever made art on a dirty car? This was simply amazing, you may never want to wash your car again, if this guy lived in your neighborhood. Some of you maybe have seen this already, but what this guy does with a paintbrush and a dirty car window is simply amazing: Never Wash Your Car Again Art.
Let me know if you liked any of the sites I found, or if you found a site you relish, let me know that too.

Tata all, happy safe surfing...
