a writers desk

Sunday, February 22, 2015

I've been venturing into the world of camera settings..it's complicated. haha, it's just *click* "let's see what this does.." :P Does anyone know what ISO is? I've been trying to figure that one out.

I've also been venturing into the world of writing, which I find much more enjoyable! Some of my followers asked what an AlphaSmart is, there is a picture above. It's very much like a computer, but without internet and a much smaller screen.

I have my writing desk, which I have been decorating and organizing (I am very much an organizer). I love writing, especially when you look back on it and actually like it! I've been using my dictionary and thesaurus, they really change your writing because you don't use all the same words which can get annoying. :)

                                                                              Do you use the dictionary/thesaurus when writing?
                                                                                                    Do you have a special writing place?

Lost in History || Promise Ring

Friday, February 13, 2015

Today my Dad took my older sisters and I out for Valentines day! It was a surprise, so we had no idea where we were going. He brought us to an adorable Italian restaurant, it was such fun! I had delicious spaghetti and meatballs. After we finished eating my Dad surprised me by giving me a promise ring! I just love it, it's so beautiful!!!  :)

Next to the restaurant was an old antique shop. I took lots of photos, but decided not to make this too long of a post.. ;) Upstairs, there was an amazing library! There were old newspapers, and AMAZING books, it was so awesome! As I walked up the stairs, I noticed they were a little crooked, which kind of freaked me out..when I went down they creaked so loud, I don't like stairs like that.. ;) 
Have a wonderful Valentines day everyone! 
                                                                     Do you have a promise ring, if so do you play with it?                                                                                                  What are your plans for Valentines day?

down the ditch

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

We went sledding today! I was kind of freaked out because when I was going down (look at the left side of pic above) I almost went down the ditch, it's deeper than it looks! My stomach really tossed. I went down again and slid backwards (not on purpose!) all the way down. So, it wasn't that great of a sledding experience..last time I went there I crashed into the fence! haha, I'm just thankful I didn't hit the tree!

Sledding is fun though and I got some super awesome pics! I love black and white in the snow with trees. :) I've been learning how to get some awesome pictures with my camera, it's lots of fun. Oh yeah, I've named my camera Macro. It just kind of happened, I loveee using macro so that's what I named it. ;)

                                                                                             Do you have any crashing experiences?
                                                                                                                          Do you like sledding?

a light snow

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Snow is so fun to take photos of, that was a beautiful, light snow! :) So, we (Bree and I,) got some great shots! My favorite is the first one. :) 

I've been crocheting...(big surprise, right??) I made a capelet the yesterday, and I really liked how it turned out. Now I'm going to make a nice light scarf..or a shoulder bag! :) I like making things I can use/wear. :) 

                                                                      Do you have any suggestions of things I could make?
                                                                                           What is your favorite photo? 

Newsboys hat || Crochet Spree

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

Every once in a while I just get this feeling..and I just have to make something. Then my friend sent me a link to this awesome website! Here is the pattern. I changed it a little, but that is basically it. :D I also made finger-less mitts! :) Now I can take more photos outside. :) I used my chunky yarn and a huge hook.. it didn't take that long and was fun to work with big yarn! :)

Lately I have been listening to a lot of music, and I've discovered my favorite is Speak Life my Tobymac. It's just so catchy and the words are awesome! :)
                                                                                     Have you ever made a newsboys hat?
                                                                                                  Do you like Speak Life?
