open when || music

Wednesday, September 02, 2015


I got this Bible for review..and so far I love it! It has wonderful notes at the bottom, section titles, and maps-


which I really love. I love how smooth it looks, though, they could have added some sort of design to the cover


to make it cuter. ;) I took off the cover because I've never liked those. ;) I really love the size, and it's really nice


to use. :) The pages are very nice, because the pages don't bleed too easily, and you can write with pens or


pencils in there. Have you ever seen a sketch Bible? Those are the neatest!! :D




My sisters and I have been enjoying playing around with the piano. As I said before, Julia and I are learning a


duet that we found off Youtube. When I was younger..around seven I think, my sisters and I took piano


lessons. After we stopped doing that-I lost track of it and never really was able to read notes, (which I so badly


want to do). So, we found an awesome course that we will be taking now, as soon as the books get here, I


believe we will be starting! I'm pretty excited, I've always loved music..I love classical, jazz, christian contemporary


music and other such stuff. Though, I admit, classical is my favorite when doing school-though, I love


singing along with music. :) 




Have you ever heard of the "open when" letters? Well, a friend and I will be doing those..I found some


pretty neat ideas on Pinterest. ;) They're pretty neat, only, you have to wait to open them. lol. Can't wait to


get mine! ;) 

what is your favorite genre of music?


have you ever done the "read when" letters?

    Julia made me the open when letters for my birthday and they are so fun!
    I love a lot of different genres of music. I like classical, some opera, choral pop music, christian, celtic and I could probably think of more!
    Great post, Sarah!!!

    1. Thank you! <3 It is pretty neat, I like their tips in their for taking photos of your lettering so you can save them as an image to use online to use for a blog header or something. :)
      Opera? lol! Bree loves opera..once, our store was playing opera on the radios! lol! Celtic is awesome too, especially when writing. ;)

  3. Can I just first ask: What is a sketch Bible? Because that sounds like the coolest thing in the world right now. XD My favorite genre of music is folk and indie. ^.^ And my friends and I have never done "read when" letters or letters od any sort, but I have written, "Dear Yesterday Self" letters, which is weird but it's fun.

    xoxo Morning

    1. You can buy them online..they are called "note takers Bible" but people use the blank ones for sketching on the side. Google it, seriously, SO NEAT. I want one. ;) lol! It looks like so fun, and beautiful! It's like putting a piece of yourself into the Bible, and you can see it every time you look at it. :) Totally google it. :D
      lol! I've never done that before, though I admit, it sounds pretty neat!

  5. I love listening to classical music while doing school! It really helps, and besides, it's beautiful. ;) That's great that you're starting up piano again! Reading notes is beyond helpful. ;) Also, I love your picture of the sky. A bright blue sky is one of my favorite things! :D

    1. Yes, it's SO calming! I can't do music with lyrics, or I'll start singing along and get distracted. lol! I'm excited to learn them..yes, a photo never seems to do it justice. :)

  8. My favorite genre of music is Christian! It always puts me in a positive mood. :)
    Read when letters? Is that like when you write a letter to yourself and can't open it until a certain time? If so, I've done that back when I was still in public school (I'm homeschooled now too, yay!). We had to write letters to ourselves at the beginning of the year and then at the end of the year we'd get them back and write about how we'd changed since then. :)

    1. I agree, also, classical is awesome for school time. ;)
      No, it's like..for example, I write a letter titled: Open when...your having a bad day - and you send out a few of them in a letter. and when they are having a bad day, my friend can open the letter.
      That does sound like fun though, it would be interesting to see how much you've changed in the past years! :D

    2. I was thinking about that yesterday....I was listening to the Newsboys while doing math, and I kept adding when I was supposed to be multiplying, because I was paying more attention to the songs than to my math work. :P So then I thought, 'I need to do what Sarah does next time and listen to classical music instead!!' I think that would be a lot less distracting. :P
      Ooh, I never heard of that before!! That sounds so cool! I definitely want to try doing that.
      It was really cool! :) I don't know if I still have my letters but hopefully! :)
      I'm writing this comment when I really should be working on my book report (Anne of Green Gables!) so I guess I'd better go do that. :D

    3. ooh, I live listening to music while doing school. ;) LOL. You thought about me while doing math? ;) my brain wouldn't be that smart, it sort of boggles in math mode. :P
      ooh, I loveee that first Anne of Green Gables book. How is your book report going? :)

      Delete
    4. Haha, yes I did! You're famous now, LOL! ;)
      Me too, it's the best! The movie is good too. It's going well, thanks for asking. Just need to write about one and a half more paragraphs before I'm done my first draft...and then comes editing. :P
