Being Tardy // Cassia’s Contest, Day 4, 5, + 6

Oh my word.

I suddenly got very busy the past few days, and I didn’t have time to post these photos! Oops!

Well, I’m going to post them now, although it’s late.

DAY FOUR: Smile

NOW…. This photo was taken awhile back and I totally slipped when trying to do a really (what I thought was) cool pose. Laugh/Embarrassed cackle, same thing! XD

DAY FIVE: A necklace

My favorite! If you’ve ever watched “Signed, Sealed and Delivered” (watch it!) this will remind you of a Rita necklace! I love it.

DAY SIX: Street photography

My friends and I were together after church last Sunday, and we did some photography on their street.

Go look at Cassia’s photo! I wish I visited some streets like that. We don’t have many ’round here. (:

There It is! These photos were fun, but not all my normal style. I hope you enjoyed, though! Happy Sunday!

September BUJO Setup

Is it already September?.png

Happy September!

WAIT,

September? Whoa. Time’s ‘a flying’!

Today I have set up my bullet journal for the new month at hand, and I thought I would present it here(:

To start off, we’re going on a long trip out west, so I have a lot of packing lists and reminders and such, it’s not quite my normal, but thus said, we shall get on with this post.

I made this little botanical theme for this month, and I used this gold-colored yellow pen to outline everything. I made a little calendar under the month, and then I made the calendar boxes on the right. I decided to keep it pretty simple, using a fine point brush pen and just block letters with a micron.

IMG_8338.JPG

I had to stretch the remaining days to the next page, then I created a box for my goals for the month. I placed various washi tape in certain areas for a bit more pattern and color(:

The next page I made my habit trackers for the month in a green pen, and I used a coral colored tape.

IMG_8340.JPG

My month’s letter tracker was similar, I used the floral theme in the corner, and I used the gold/yellow pen. I rotated between that color and the green one in the next page.

My ‘to do’s’ for the month page is really simple, just boxes to check(:

IMG_8341.JPG

I made my September blog ideas with the same theme, and I made my list of things to do and places to see on our trip. (I have my packing lists in my August setup) I used the to do layout with the boxes, then I added this tape that says “Go where you feel most alive” and a cute little airplane cutout.

*brief note*

If y’all are looking for cute washi tape, Hobby Lobby is having a clearance sale on their brand “the paper studio.” Go check it out!

*end of brief note*

IMG_8342.JPG

My friend and I made this little page we called “self care” that have a lot of things to do for fun.

Then I have some reminders for the month.

IMG_8473.JPG

And that’s it!

What did you think of this months setup? What was your favorite page?

Have a wonderful day!

A Few Photos (+POTP Entries)

Text placeholder-7.png

Howdy, everyone!

We finally had a break from all this rain we’ve been having and I pounced on the opportunity for some pictures!

Also, I am in Meg’s photo contest. (POTP) And some of these shall be my entries. I will label the ones that are(: The category for this is bright/bold, so I tried to stick to that as best as I could(: If you’re interested in joining be sure to go and let her know and have your entries in by March 3rd(:

 

POTP
From Meg’s blog

Let’s go, shall we?

IMG_9990.JPG

To start out, as my camera was on a 10 second count down, I slipped down a bank in our woods, ending up like this😆


                                        POTP Entries

I’m starting with the photo contest entries. This looks like one I’ve used before, (see HERE 😁) but I love how bright (and PURPLE!💜) and how the colors are fading from day to night.

IMG_0125.JPG

I do love sunsets! I love the bold colors against the silhouette of the foreground objects.

IMG_0124

With a bit of editing, I think this turned out pretty cute! I really enjoyed this one. I really wanted the bold pink color to stand out against the grayscale(:

IMG_9893

Hehe, my brother took this one. It’s funny😂 I like it, again, because of the bright pink color with the blank background.

IMG_9888.JPG

This is when we harvested our sunflowers. I know this isn’t very recent, but it fit the category so well(: Don’t you just love the golden petals of sunflowers?

IMG_8949.JPG

Those are my entries! This theme was fun to take pictures for. Be sure to go visit Meg’s  blog and join! I’m in team fox, and she has a few other teams, too!


 

Okay, now here are some photos I’ve taken over the past three or four days…

So many Springy things have sprung up over the past days of all this rain. It really looked (but I can’t say felt…) like Spring outside today!

IMG_9947.JPG

IMG_9946.JPG

IMG_9952.JPG

Hehe. My friends and I did a photoshoot. Here we are very realistically running, holding hands, through the field😁 I love photoshoots(:

IMG_9911.JPG

Walkin’ into March like…🤣

IMG_9984.JPG

IMG_9962.JPG

IMG_9963.JPG

Our creek looks so pure and clean after all the rain that has rejuvenated it!

IMG_9955.JPG

Little Maisy (disobediently…🤔) ran a long way down to the woods to come see where I was… (:

IMG_9967.JPG

The fog this morning was SO pretty coming through the trees, and the picture would’ve been pretty too except..except… the CAMPER!? NOOO!

hEHe..

Isn’t fog gorgeous?

IMG_9938.JPG

IMG_9936.JPG

IMG_9932.JPG

That is it! Thank you so much for reading this, it was fun!

Come by again sometime!

Y’all, be sure to let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see soon, I’ll do my best to do it!

Have a great day!

DIY: Cute Valentine’s Day Cards

Continue to turn pages..png

Hi!!!!!

Are all of you well this fine day?

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon! I always like making little Valentine’s around this time every year, and this year I wanted to show y’all how I do them! Let’s get right in to it.

So first, grab some scrapbook paper of your choice. (one big sheet is enough unless you’ll be switching) I chose pink and, later, one with hearts. (look at that funny little sun ray/spot on the paper😚)

 

IMG_9374.JPG

Then fold it in half. (any way)

IMG_9375.JPG

Then draw half on a heart right on the crease. (this helps to get the perfect shape)

IMG_9376.JPG

Voila! Smooth it out straight and flat.

IMG_9379.JPG

Then make 2-3 more. Leave the first flat, the second one half-folded, and the third mostly-folded.

IMG_9382.JPG

Then I got out our ancient hot glue gun😄 You can use a glue stick or the like, but I always find hot glue works best.

IMG_9383.JPG

While I waited for it to heat, I got out my card I was going to use.

IMG_9385.JPG

Then I glued the half folded heart to the flat one.

IMG_9387.JPG

Then add the mostly folded to the bunch. You can make it as big, add as many layers and colors as you want, but I only did three for now.

IMG_9389

Then add your little heart cluster in one of the upper areas. (or lower. There are going to be words) I put mine in the mid-upper right.

IMG_9390

Then sketch out the words you want and the basket. (It’s a hot air balloon😄)

IMG_9391

Voila! I used my Tombow Fudenosuke hard tip for the words and clouds. (Although I used no pressure on the clouds; they were just sketchy lines.)

 

IMG_9392

Then I got out a different sheet of scrapbook paper for the next one!

IMG_9394.JPG

I got three puzzle pieces for this next one that says “I love you to pieces” I thought this saying was really cute, so i’m a’ gonna use ‘er!

IMG_9396.JPG

Then flip your scrapbook paper over and trace and cut them out.

IMG_9397Then put a little dab of hot glue on the backs. Stick them towards the top, but not all the way up. More upper-middle. (Is that a thing?😁)

IMG_9398

I forgot to take a picture of me doing this, but there! It’s finished! I just wrote it down using my Tombow Fude hard tip. (And AUGH! Points off for blurriness!)

IMG_9399

Well, I hope you enjoyed this short DIY On Valentine’s Cards! Thank you so much for reading, friends!

ALSO: Big thanks for 25 Followers, you guys! Thank you so much!

Yet Another Clump

Hello, All!

Do you have any snow? We were supposed to get one inch yesterday, which is about the only amount of snow we get every year. Guess what?

We got 20 MEASLY MINUTES of FLURRIES!!!

😞 Well, there’s Georgia for you.

It seems lately that I have been taking a lot of random photos that don’t really fit in certain posts or categories, so I shall cluster them together in a pile of pixels here! Most of these are quite random, though. Enjoy!

A Clump Of Photos

Bonsior!

I have accumulated, in the past months, a large amount of, to the best of my knowledge, random photos of random things, and I thought it would be fun to pour them out here for you all to see!

I can’t really say that I know the meaning of all of them, but maybe I call leave that to you!

Also, do you like French? I am learning it now and quite enjoy it😁

AHHH! Back when the beautiful golden leaves were still with us. *Tear slides softly down thy face*

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! A bookstore we stumbled upon in Jacksonville, AL.

Hehe. We left my Grandparents house, and I only had these clean socks and these shoes, so I ended up with this. (I actually like it(: ) I matched the book store’s carpet😆

IMG_8736.JPG

A photoshoot with another friend. Oh, don’t you LOVE photoshoots?

IMG_8918.JPG

Maisy LOVES soccer. Evan and I play with her a lot, the actual game, AND SHE ALWAYS WINS. She can carry the ball in her teeth, and she can run SO FAST, that she just glides right by us into the goal!? SHE’S ALSO A GOALY. I’m not kidding. (😳)

IMG_8873.JPG

Look at these COLORS! Ah. Beautiful!

There’s just something I love about this old plow. Hmm.

Christmas Countdown, day 11

11

Salutations!

Today I chose weather as the topic for “Christmas Countdown” (:

A little bit of an odd one, but I though I’d give it a whirl!

 

Here where we live in Georgia, the weather on Christmas day is quite unpredictable.

I can only remember one white Christmas, and I think that was about nine or ten years ago! We usually get at least one snow a year, (maybe two, if we’re lucky) but we haven’t had a white Christmas in quite some years.

In 2016 we had 80° weather here! I remember that, because my Mom, for Christmas, had got me a plaid flannel shirt that I was eager to wear, but when we all went outside, since it was so sunny and warm, I had to go back inside twice to change into something that would be cooler! (I have pictures; I ended up with a tank top and shorts!)

But most years it’s just been cold, maybe sunny, and snowless): But that’s okay, because if we don’t have snow before Christmas, we usually get some after. (:

What Is your weather like where you live at Christmas? Do you get snow? Is it Hot?

Come back tomorrow!

8 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! (wait, what?! 8 days?)
