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!

Journal diy

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.)
Hope you have a lovely rest of the weekend! xo

Summer Outfit

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.

Straw hat: Local grocery store
Dress: Kohls
Sunnies: Walmart
