Making Your Letters More Autumnal // + A Mini Photoshoot

HI THERE! 

I was starting to write a letter today after I bought a few things at Hobby Lobby (“the Hob Lob” as we call it) and I wanted to make it very fallish. It seems like Christmas is just around the corner, a few people I know have decorated! So I definitely want to squeeze as much fall in as I can.

Letter writing is a great way to do that!

I though I would share with y’all some of the small things that make your letters pop with the seasons in simple ways.

NO. 1 Toned card + envelopes

Hobby Lobby, one of my favorite places, has a nice selection of packeted cards and envelopes. They have these nice rectangular brown ones there now (50%, too!) that I got earlier. They’re a nice difference from the regular white, and when you do reds and oranges on them, the brown looks so nice and fallish!

IMG_8708

NO. 2 Colored pens

these are a great way to make your cards and envelopes pop and immediately remind you of fall. I always go for reds, oranges, browns and greens.

Below: Tombow Dual Brush Pens

IMG_8714.JPG

I made a quick, simple card using the bullet end of a dual brush pen for the words and the brush end for the leaves.

IMG_8713.JPG
Sorry this is blurry! My back screen wouldn’t show that well before I put it in the envelope!

I got those two front plaid wash tapes at Hobby Lobby earlier. I thought the would be fun to use through the fall and winter months in my bullet journal and on letters.

NO. 3 Tapes or stickers

These are affordable, long-lasting touches for your letters. The fun patterns and widths are just so fun to see on envelopes in the mailbox, and they’re fun to put on everything.

IMG_8711.JPG

NO. 4 Tiny tidbits and fun things

Fall themed stickers, papers, poems, Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s), paintings, cutouts, etc. are fun touches to put inside a letter when it doesn’t seem like enough. There is usually always some fun little thing to add a little more joy to the letter when it is opened.

IMG_8718.JPG

NO. 5 Colorful envelopes

I kept the envelope pretty simple, but the reds and the plaid make it stand out. You can draw a box around the address in bright colors, paint, sketch, anything. It’s so fun to personalize the mail!

IMG_8719.JPG

The last thing I got from the good ‘ole Hob Lob was a new wax seal stamp. The whole stamp pin came off of my old one, so I figured I should upgrade(: I got the heart stamp, and I really like it!

NO. 6 Wax seals

These are my favorite part. I don’t do it every time, but I really enjoy choosing the colors. (I bought this from Amazon. Great buy!)

I used a gold over the wide plaid washout tape I got. It turned out pretty! A very simple and easy way to make your envelope fancy and pretty.

IMG_8722.JPG

IMG_8726.JPG

I hope y’all enjoyed that! It was something I had on my mind to share, it was fun!

Now, I attempted to take some portrait photography for my blog for a new Gravatar image and such, but I ended up having to recruit my brother. It’s really hard to get it to be focused perfectly on a tripod and ten-second timer!

This was one I took by myself. It turned out good, but I kept getting the washed-out background (upper left), so I called good ‘ole Evan.

IMG_8539

I think he did pretty good! It was a frigid windy day, so camera shake and all was hard to avoid, BUT THE LIGHT! ♥

IMG_8543

This one probably turnout the best out of all of them. My hair was being wiped all ’round!

Cassia’s Contest, FINAL DAY! // The Country Living Fair, 2019 // Poll

Hi there!

Today is the final day of Cassia’s photo contest. It has been fun! Unfortunately, I missed a few days, but I caught up HERE. Check it out!

Today’s final prompt: BOOKS

YES! Books!

IMG_1267

Thank you, Cassia, for hosting this contest! It was so fun.


 

WELL… We recently went to the Country Living Fair not far from us in Stone Mountain, Ga. It was so fun! It was supposed to rain, but it remained fallishly cool and overcast, we couldn’t argue!

The Country Living Fair consists of food trucks, vendors containing things from the magazine, clothes, house things, vintage things, art, rugs, and all at Stone Mountain. We walked around the winding pathways and stopped at the different pop-ups.

We also got sick from the various cinnamon sugar pecans that might’ve been purchased for the pleasure of the taste buds. Mmm mm. (They’re GREAT)

There were some lovely paintings and artsy things. How pretty!

IMG_0015.JPG

There was this one vendor that had these beautiful butterflies. Look at that middle one!

IMG_0018.JPG

This was a degree from 1930 by Emory University hospital (right here in ATL!). I thought it was so neat! Mr. Mclaren Johnson. SO cool!

IMG_0020.JPG

This rocking horse looked very interested in his job. XD

IMG_0021.JPG

I loved the vintage postal boxes! I thought about getting some for my letters, but vintage prices weren’t quite in my reach(:

IMG_0029.JPG

AH! Vintage cameras!

IMG_0038.JPG

Look at this Kodak! I would like to take pictures with one of these. They’re so cute!

IMG_0039.JPG

On one of the loops there were vintage campers set up to look inside. I didn’t get good photos of the inside, but they had pink cabinets! AH!

IMG_0044.JPG

I kept trying to get photos of mirrors. Heh, it was hard! XD

IMG_0014.JPG

I hope you enjoyed seeing photos from the fair! It was so fun.

I hope your day is wonderful!

A Few Words // Cassia’s Photo Contest! Day 1. // A tag from Clara

Hello!

It’s actually cold. We’ve got the heat on. We set out the chipped pumpkin flower pot. And I’m wearing my yard sale striped bunny socks.

It must not be Summer any more.

Well, I haven’t done many posts where I’m just talking and talking for many a word until I say “I guess that’s good for now,” So Today’s The Day™. (Does it seem right that I just pictured myself as some sort of interesting looking superhero then? Teeheehee)

 

 

So, starting out, may I just say….

I’ve abandoned Inktober.

I know, I deserve the shaming shake-of-the-head, but it really wasn’t my thing, you know? The prompts just weren’t my style, aand I wasn’t really enjoying it like I ought. (Does the, “like I ought” strangely remind you of Little Women like it does me?)

I’m still drawing every day for the rest of this month, but the prompts are out the window and crushed under a moving car. (Wow, no need to be harsh, Audrey!) Anyway, I guess I’m still technically “doing” Inktober, but promptless.

I’m trying to get back in the rhythm of drawing more realistically, so I’ve been working on eyes. They’re a fun thing to draw and paint.


 

Yippee! Today’s the first day of Cassia’s photo contest, and the “prompt” today was door. Now, you wouldn’t believe the puzzle I had this morning taking a picture of doors. It was a fun challenge, though! Our door handles were a fun shape and color against our sage colored doors.

I hope you all enjoy! And if you were not tagged and wish to do this, feel free! I’ll enjoy seeing what makes you happy(:


 

So, life is busy. Does it seem like it just gets busier and busier as you get older? I know I’ve talked about this before, but time is such a gift. I’m putting some elbow grease into working on savoring every moment as I am now, a teenage girl.

Side note…

IT’S HARD!

Sometimes we look forward to something and look forward to something, that we rush away the days that matter more. Now, that’s a bit extreme, but still, I remember times when I would be dying for Christmas to come, and Thanksgiving and things that mattered would be trampled under my Santa’s elf slippers. I mean, wow.

I even had a Rudolph costume, complete with a harness with bells and a red nose. Mmm. (Being ten, ya know? XD)

The remaining slice of October is quite jam-packed, but I like it.

I am doing a lot of school now that I’m in High school, but we still get up at the crack of dawn to go yardsaling on Fridays and Saturdays. Hey, it’s economics class! (:

 

Doesn’t it seem like the plural of “Moose” would be “Meese,” like “Goose” is “Geese?” Hmm.

I miss Morty the moose!

(from our trip out West)

IMG_9508

The color is still here, but, luckily, its’ cool now. The mornings have been in the 40º’s!

Do you like cold weather?

IMG_9973.JPG

Well, this is nearing 1,000 words, a length of posts I haven’t done in awhile, so this has been fun! Do you enjoy a variety of things in a post, or just one topic? I can’t decide. I think I like reading both.

What do you have coming up this week?

Look back for a few days to see my photography for Cassia’s contest. I’m looking forward to the different shots I’m going to take! It’s going to time out perfectly for some of the shots, we’re going to Peachtree City (near Atlanta) and Stone Mountain for the Country Living Fair (post coming!).

I hope you’re having a wonderful day, and I can’t wait to see if you’re doing the tag!

Oof. // Inktober Mid-point + How to Knock Out Prompts

Knocking out Inktober Promts.png

Hello, Friends!

It almost makes me a weeeeee bit teary-eyed to think how RAPIDLY October is flying past, my favorite month of the year is going as fast as the rest of this year has been! Learning to savor the time we have right now is something I’ll probably work on for a long time in my life.

ANYWAY…

All that being said, I’ve been drawing using the Inktober prompts every day, and it’s been very tricky a lot of times. (I mean, how do you draw something using the prompt “Legend”? Hehe, it wasn’t my best Inktober day🤣)

The first day was “Ring” as the prompt, so my process was sketching out different things. I first sketched out a ring , then a girls with a ring on her finger, but I wasn’t feeling that. I remember racking my brain trying to think of another thing, and the I thought, “Oh! A ringing phone!”

It always helps me to create little thumbnails of what your ideas are and a smaller version of the drawing, just to see if you like it.

IMG_9910.JPG            IMG_9911

Jumping over to the fourth day was “Freeze” as the prompt. I automatically thought of Frozen, to over on the left I drew a lady with ice powers (I wonder if she’s warm or cold blooded?😂), but I didn’t love that idea. Freeze tag! What else? (: That’s what I stuck with and I quite enjoyed the process of day four.

IMG_9912

Now day seven is probably one of my favorite drawings. I used calligraphy ink this day, where the prompt was “Enchanting,” so it was a new challenge. I decided my version of enchanting would be someone who was sweet and beautiful, so along came this character. I really like the different shades and contrasts you can get using ink, and it does really well with lettering (like where I wrote “Inktober 2019” over there).

IMG_9913

Day eight makes me laugh all the time, because the skinny girl with the bored expression is the same face I make. XD. (ALSO: Ignore the girl to the right, she was a random sketch I don’t like🤣) Stripes on sleeves are the BEST to draw and paint, because the torso part go across and the sleeves are slanted. SO GREAT! I love figuring out how to draw 2D/3D.

IMG_9915

Day ten, “Pattern,” was a fun one. The girl I painted has a plaid shirt, polka dot undershirt, and striped paints. Heehee! New fashion choices always puzzle me. 🤣

I painted in the ink with water different patterns and I thought I would make it interesting(:

IMG_9919

Day 14 was a lot of fun, especially elongating people. The prompt was “Overgrown,” so that’s what I did! I added a lot of random sketches, too.

*Small Note*

I do believe the illo sketchbooks are quite possibly my favorite sketchbooks I’ve used and I love the spiral-less, lay-flat-ness, high quality of these.

*End of Small Note*

img_9920.jpg

If you will, excuse the poor quality of this drawing. (:

The prompt today was “Ornament,” so I drew a girl/lady hanging one on her tree for Christmas. Blec. Hehe!

I’ve been drawing people to try and stretch that muscle for this month. Whew! It’s been tricky, but I’ve been enjoying it.

By the way, hands, feet and mouths are very tricky for me. I don’t know why, because I have all of those things! Anyway, that’s today’s drawing.

img_9922.jpg

Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing that peek at a few of my Inktober drawings for this year. It has been really fun so far!

 

Stay tuned for another post soon!

OCTOBER!! INKTOBER! AUTUMN!

*cough, choke*

Let me calm myself…

Greetings!  Today I have photographed my October bullet journal setup, and I though you might enjoy.

I really like fall (like I said HERE.. And here.. and here…), so I had to incorporate that someplace, and leaves sprung up. Originally, I was thinking about a pumpkin, but leaves are just so… fun!

I kept it fairly simple, using my Tombow dual-brush pens and a micron and a Tombow Fudenosuke. I sketched it out, then I picked some “fallish” colors. I kept the lineart fairly simple as well, like not going around the edges, but just the veins in the leaf.

On the right page, the one for my calendar, I did simple orange/gold rectangular boxes and brush lettering on top with the day. I like the overall appearance of these pages. They have a nice warm vibe.

IMG_9700.JPG

I had to stretch the 31st day onto the next page, so in the blanks next to it I put wash tape from Target. Below I really wanted to incorporate the Anne of Green Gables quote, “Aren’t you so glad we live in a world where there are Octobers?” so I thought that was the best place. Below I did goals, reminders and to-do’s in red boxes. I like to add this near the calendar so it will remind you not to procrastinate(:

On the right I did my regular habit tracker in micron, then the leaves. I wanted to keep this one simple as to not compete with the opposite page(:

IMG_9701.JPG

I made this little letter tracker page with a black micron and I used the same leaves. It’s always fun to have a repetitive theme for the month, like I’ve been doing since June (ish). They’re always fun to look back on!

On the right I have the inktober prompts written down so I can easily check them off. (Don’t forget to look back during the month for Inktober progress!) I used the same leaf colors to create a gradient with the words. I really like doing this(:

IMG_9703.JPG

And for the last pages I mainly just stayed the same. Black micron and leaves. The left is blog ideas for the month ( (: ), and to the right was just overall ideas I have.

IMG_9705.JPG

That’s a wrap, for now. I hope you all enjoyed this month’s setup, come back soon!

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 Collection // Letter Art and Other Things

Add a heading-11.png

This is a good day, isn’t it?

Summer is most assuredly here.

It’s proven in the sky. Well, um, the heat. It is rather hot. (:

Well, today is a day for art and things related! I have collected a few photos of letter art and some watercolorings and such. Let’s go, shall we?

I’ve been doing a lot of floral lately around the address and such.

I have a few questions about my one little yellow rose in the corner… XD

IMG_8151.jpg

I have been making a few envelopes lately and it’s fun to use different scrapbook paper. I  had this little “counting my blessings” sticker and I thought that would be a fun address sticker. (I’ve found it’s a tidbit difficult to write on this particular paper(: )

IMG_8156.JPGIMG_8155.JPG

A little collection of a letter. I like sticking with a color theme for letters. I always like collecting little things like bookmarks, cute notecards, stickers, quotes, paintings, it’s fun to fill a letter with doo-da’s(:

IMG_8126.JPG

Yellow has been a cheery color to me lately and I’ve been using it a lot. I like sunflowers a lot, so yellow + sunflowers, hmm? hmm? (:

IMG_8139

A friend of mine had a birthday, so I made her a card. I stuck pretty simple for this one, but I enjoyed how it came out. Do you watercolor?

IMG_8129

My friend Laura wondered if I would like to write three letters to some elderly people in an assisted living home, so I said yes! (: I made three different letters. Thanks, Laura! ‘Twas fun(:

IMG_8160.JPGIMG_8159.JPGIMG_8158.JPG

I’ve been cutting pages of multi-media paper in half and doing watercolor borders. It adds a little somthin’ somthin’ (:

IMG_8143.JPG

IMG_8144.JPG
Sorry about the strange lighting. O.o

You know something that’s a little (fun, but) difficult? Teeth and watercolor. It’s a little tricky to make it look like teeth! Over all, I like how she turned out.

IMG_8140.JPG

A tree.

A watercolor tree. (:

Trees are tricky! (alliteration)

IMG_8134.JPG

Quotes/verses on ATC’s are a fun thing to add in a letter. (Also fun to make!)

IMG_8123.JPG

This is one of my favorite verses, and I thought I’d try a large-scale painting.

IMG_8130.JPG

Someone asked me for a painting of a cake, so I made one(: Mm… now I want cake!

We also went to a Atlanta Braves game, to which my camera was present. We had the next row down from the highest seats. O.o My stomach got a little knotted up, ’twas quite high(:

Bullet Journaling // Why It Works

Add a heading-10.png

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a great day!

I was filling out things in my bullet journal earlier and I was thinking, “What did I do before this!?”  Bullet journaling has worked well and has been really fun in the process, and today I’m just going to share some various tidbits about it and why it works so well.

To start off, there’s something I always haven’t been extremely faithful about remembering: The bullet key.

This is a very helpful way to remember the importance, time, if you completed something, if you need to save, if you need to buy, if you need to check off your list kinds of things.

I always put mine in the front of my bullet journal so that when I need to go look for it, it’s not hidden away in the middle someplace.

I stuck to some basic ones, like “task done” “task completed” “important” “good idea” and such. I’ve heard of other people doing a lot more things in order to help them remember.

If you’re just starting out with bullet journaling, or even if you’ve done it for awhile, this is still very helpful. The key, and the whole bullet journal as a matter of fact, is completely customizable to your own taste.

IMG_8084.JPG

Now, when I first started bullet journaling, I didn’t have something that I really like now, a content page/index.

My newest bullet journal, the one I’m in now, has one and it’s one of the most helpful things in it. (click HERE to see my Bullet Journal)

IMG_8087.JPG

Habit Trackers are probably my most helpful and favorite things in a bullet journal, because when they’re finished (especially if you didn’t miss a day) they look really neat, and they make you want to do that thing to be able to fill it in.

I’ve done all kinds; ones where you fill it in with certain colors, others its own separate box with a favorite black fineliner.

IMG_8088.JPG

IMG_8099.JPG

I really like to do a goals page. It’s always fun to see, at the end of the month, what goals you met.

Creating “TO-DO” lists for the month and cleaning plans are always great and very efficient and good to do ahead of time and to be able to add to later, because you can take a glance, go do something on your list, come back and check it off.

The main thing about a bullet journal that is so great is that it’s all in one. You get planner, calendar, to-do’s, goals, a journal (if you add that), in one book, and the good thing is that it’s only one book!

Hehe, I know I just said that twice, but that’s really the best thing about it. Instead of opening five different sources to check off or see various things, the all-in-one is so great. I prefer a A5 size journal because if you need to take it anywhere it isn’t too big.

Something else I prefer is a dotted grid. This is just me, but when I create a grid or calendar or do brush lettering, I don’t like doing it over back black lines. There are also square grids. I prefer a dotted grid that isn’t too noticeable, but it’s not just a blank piece of paper. (A grid really helps with lines and writing)

IMG_9347
You can see the dotted grid here.

I have a lot of pens I use when bullet journaling, but some of my favorites are my *Tombow Dual brush pens. These are water-based, brush and bullet nib pens that are great for writing, doing brush lettering, or coloring in certain things. They blend really well, too, which is something fun for your bullet journal’s look.

Some of my other favorites are my *Pigma Microns in black. Ah! I love these. They last long time and are great for writing and drawing grids.

I love to use a kneaded eraser and just a regular light pencil (like a 4H or 2H) to sketch out my designs. This is probably you have around your house!

And we can’t forget a good ‘ole ruler!

I hope this post was helpful and that you enjoyed it! Let me know what you would like to see next. More posts of the like?

Have a wonderful day!
