Hey guys! After thinking about this for a while, I decided to make a new blog as this one doesn't feel like it describes me anymore. You can find my new home at: Jennifer's Suitcase.
Thanks to everyone who joined me on this short(!) ride. :) xo!
I found an amazing tutorial for making a journal at Indie Jane Photography the other day. After reading it, naturally I decided to make my own version.
All I did was:
1) Got an old journal of mine and ripped out half the pages. (When I finish the journal, what I've added back will fill it out again.)
2) Used fabric tape and put in pretty paper or pictures.
3) Add a quote, verse, or lyric and the date.
I'll be posting an entry once a month. Here's today's. :)
For me, this is a really great way to remember all the things that inspire, lift me up, and even songs that were stuck inside my head. Plus it's pretty. :) I bought the fabric tape from The Plaid Barn during one of their one-day sales. The paper is just scrap I had in my craft organizer. (Yes, I have a craft organizer.. which needs to be re-organized.. eh, maybe on winter break.)
Lazy summer days. Reading in the hammock, crafting, and dreaming little dreams.
Then school starts, and half my time is gone. Le sigh.
I love curling my hair with rag curls. I found a great tutorial over on A Beautiful Mess. The only thing I changed was the size of the curl. I like larger curls, so I just rolled up more hair. People have told me when I wear my hair like this, I look like Taylor Swift. Sometimes I see it, sometimes I don't.
Anyway, this outfit is a favorite. I've worn the dress out alot, because it's so easy.
Last summer was so full of excitement. My family had just moved from a dinky subdivision to 11 acres of land. I was going to be a senior in high school. I had a lot of things going for me.
Now life is a little scary. I'm going to do some things I've dreamed of doing, and some things I've avoided for a long time.
The past always seems like a happier place, with better people and scenery. I miss that hopeful anticipation of exciting things.
