Some Exciting News!

So, last week was really rough for me... REALLY ROUGH! Work was terrible and it was just the shove I needed to get focused and motivated. I really admire so many other people out there who are getting to do exactly what I want to be doing and are successful at it. And that is running they're own crafty fun inspiring business from home! I've been dabbling in it for about a year and have relished the little successes I have had along the way. But now I want to get it going full swing! So, I am making quit a few changes. I am getting lovely things ready for my shop and will be re launching it in a few weeks!!!!! It will be filled with inspiring journals, handmade envelopes and lots of special paper. LOVELY! I am also going to start building a photography portfolio! Which is really intimidating for me because while I love the art I create and the photos I take I am always afraid that they aren't up to snuff, well no more! Finally I will be re launching my little Blog. I've been writing this blog for about three years and I have learned A LOT! I want to make quite a few changes to it. For instance tagging posts so they are more accessible, having recurring weekly posts and keeping a schedule so I get to write more! In order to do this though I will be starting again from scratch... Which makes me both sad and very excited! But of course you will be able to link back and forth between the two so this little Blog will never be lost. Well, I guess that's it for this morning! I'll be updating this Blog as my plans progress!!!

Is this Semester Over yet

Gosh I can't wait til this semester of school is done!!! I haven't been able to blog or craft much. Though I'm trying to fit it in.

Actually. I've been considering stopping for a while... Though it would be good to still have this little Blog going while I continue to try make my hobbies into careers. I just feel like no ones paying attention anyways. Networking is hard! We'll see.

Anywho these are the three photos I took for my photography class!!! I'm really learning a lot. I bought a super zoom lens and I can't wait to go to the zoo!!!

So here are my top three favorite pictures from my photography class this week!!! I'm really excited to get Brandy our instructors feedback this Thursday. I really would love to enter some pictures in the Fair this year! But school is always so busy these last two months... So. We shall see!!!

I am really loving my class so far. It's nice that it's only one lesson a week. It forces me to just practice one new skill at a time. Even though I'm itching to learn more!!!

I want to do this for a living!!!

I'm going to be Taking a Photography Class!


Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE to take photos! Love, love, love. It would be amazing to pursue a career in it but the practical girl in me has always brushed off the idea of making my artsy endevours into my job. I have always wanted to take a photography class but have never found one at any of the local colleges I attend that would fit into my hectic schedule! Well lately while browsing two of my favorite Blogs The Dainty Squid and A Beautiful Mess (both can be found in my CLICK PLEASE! section) I happened across a lovely girl who offers online courses! I've had my DSLR for about a year now and still have yet to learn how to shoot in manual. Tragic I know...

So I've taken the leap and signed up for the course! I am super excited to learn new skills and I even have my first gig in June! A great friend of mine is getting married and she wasn't planning on having a photographer (too expensive) so I told her I would love to play around and take photos for them! Super Exciting! If anyone is interested in a photography course the website is Bella POP! You can find it on the right. I'll post pictures soon!

My New Hand Made Journal!


So four hours later. From start to finish and this is what I've got! I'm fairly pleased with it. A few of the pages with text ended upside down. But who cares!!! That just means I get to sporadically journal upside down. And there's nothing wrong with that! Hahah
