When you think of Asbury Park, New Jersey, what do you think of? Snooki? Bruce Springsteen. OK, you pass.
Well, that’s not all there is to the home of Jersey Shore, you know. There’s a whole lot more.
For instance, did you know Danny DeVito grew up there? How about Bud Abbott of Abbott and Costello fame? He was born in Asbury Park. Then there’s famous fortuneteller Madam Marie. She lived there for a time. And Stephen Crane, author of “The Red Badge of Courage” – yep, he’s no outsider either.
Asbury Park has for a long time been a cultural hot spot. But you knew that, didn’t you?
And for you baseball fans, well, you might be interested to know there’s a large switch hitting community as well. OK, so maybe they’re total lefties. Whaddo I know? Fact is, you can take a Road Trip to Asbury Park and join the Sand Blast all in one weekend. Do like the natives do and take Pride in thyself, home boy.
Anyhow, Asbury Park, New Jersey’s one cool gig. And you can learn all about it from itsjessicann, who wants to be your online tour guide to one of the most famous towns on the East Coast. Asbury Park is in the midst of a cultural, economic and political makeover that some people are calling a revival, probably because they’ve got that old-time religion. Some folks are saying they’re going about rehabilitating the old Convention Hall. Good thing. The old sot needs it.

What a lovely take on portraiture.
Indonesian Fiverr seller desainoke makes by a personalized greeting card in that she takes a photo of you, renders it into an artistic drawing, then adds any message you like so that the finished product is in a postcard format.
Our portrait postcard was in extremely high resolution (3508×2480 pixels), which is useful is you want to make a poster or other large object out of it. You could actually have it printed as a postcard if that’s your desire but you’ll have to find a printer.
desainoke (aka Imajinasi Dimas) has been drawing for 6 years and won 3 awards in competition.
What a sweetly nostalgic idea.
Elise, aka goozeberryhill, will create a garden marker out of a vintage spoon stamped with the word or short phrase of your choice. The examples she used were Herb Garden, Veg Patch and Salad Garden, but you can do something more personalized. We’re thinking you could even write something like Get Well or I Love You and tuck it into a flowering plant.
We asked her how she came up with this genius gig and here’s what she said:
I took a silversmithing course at my local college where we paid a small fortune for little bits of silver to stamp with letter punches so to save money I started to use old spoons and cutlery to practice on. This led onto making Birthday, Christmas and any other occasion gifts for Friends and family on Antique and vintage spoons.
The idea for the garden markers came from seeing my Dad putting little wooden sticks in to his garden during planting season and the writing inevitably getting washed off in the rain. So for his Birthday last year I gave him a set of garden markers with the names of all the seeds he plants every year.
