new blog design || SnapsOfLife2016

Friday, May 27, 2016


Wellllllll, you may have noticed something different around here. *ahem* Yup. I updated the design. I got this awesomeness off Etsy. Pretty neat, huh?

Along with the new design AND a new DSLR I have another something new for you all...Julia and I have been brainstorming and we came up with the idea for a photography prompt challenge.
Interested?
Well, we're creating a pinterest group board to post our daily photo prompts on.
Even more interested? Perhaps you'd like to join us.



Sign up before the 1st so you can start with the fresh new month. We'd love to have you!

are you interested? did you sign up?
what do you think of the changes around here?

  9. The design is so chic and accessible! Great choice! And the challenge sounds so much fun. I don't think that I can commit just because I'm out of town so much this summer, but I can't wait to hear how it goes!

  13. Everytime I go to do my own photography challenge, I fail. I guess it's because I have no "accountability" and such, so this is great!!!!! So looking forward to it! "summer camp" =)

    1. oh, I know. I had been wanting to do one myself but I knew I probably couldn't stick with it if I wasn't doing it with other people. Works out great for both of us, huh? :D

  14. I would SOOOOO love to do this! I love challenges/prompts... I took the KBR thankfulness one and a blogging one last year, and I loved those!!! I've seen photography challenges before, but they always had weird things in them, hahaha... but I trust you girls, haha ;). Plus, with a new computer, it's more likely that I'll be able to upload them regularly :). And, come on... it's just more fun when you aren't doing it by you little bitty lonesome, haha :)! Count me in!

    1. Awesome!! I have done the KBR thankful challenge twice before! :D Oh, I know, right? There always has to be something in them. :P I'm glad so many girls have joined, it will make it super fun. :D hahaa, that's what I thought. Why do it myself when I can have lots of other people doing it with me?! Thanks for joining, Bri! :D

  18. First off, let me say this: YOU ARE STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS. o.o

    And yay for new cameras! I invested in a DSLR last summer, and it was so. worth. it.

    Speaking of which, I'd love to join the photography group! You said it's members only, right? Because unless I put a watermark of some sort on my photos, I don't want to worry about it being pinned all over Pinterest or stolen or something. Not that I really think my photos are WORTH stealing, but, you know. xD Do members offer constructive criticism to each other in the comments?

    On another subject, I love the new design! So fresh and professional looking. :)

    1. awe, THANK YOU SO MUCH. You are SO sweet! <3 <3 <3

      ooooohhhhh. What kind of DSLR did you get?

      Well, members only can pin on the board. But I thought I'd make it public so those who didn't join (or couldn't because of time) could still join in by seeing all the pics. I wrote a "no stealing" thing on the top of the board. But I can remind everyone that no pins (except for your own, of course) can go out of the board.
      I hadn't added the constructive criticism because I wasn't sure of everyone would want that. Certain people could ask for it. (Even if it was just you and I. I'd love to be able to learn more that would work great).

      If you do want to join, sign up soon because I'll probably take off the form in a few days. :D

      Thank you so much, Emily! <3 <3

    2. I got a Canon Rebel SL1, I believe. :)

      Hmm... *facepalm* WHY do I keep forgetting that I'm moving soon? xD I would be without internet for a long time, so yeah... I guess I'll have to pass for now. Sounds like a lot of fun, though! :D

    3. lol. Well, it will depend on how this month goes, but we might continue it. So if we do, maybe you can join us then. Hope your move goes well! :D

  19. HEY SARAH!! OMG YOUR BLOG IS GORGEOUS. <3 I'm in love and probably camping out here hopefully you don't mind. XD *hugs and waffles* What Etsy shop did you get your theme from? My favorite blog designer on there just went out of business, so I like to keep my eyes peeled for some other good blog designers. ;)

    following eeeep!
