-The Liebster Award- (times two)

 I’ve been nominated for so many awards lately, (thank you guys) but sometimes it can get overwhelming. That’s why I only do awards every so often! 😉

Thank you to Ariana and Jo for both nominating me!


  • Acknowledge the blog that nominated you for the award.
  • Answer the questions they gave you.
  • Give 11 fun facts about yourself.
  • Give your nominee’s 11 questions to answer.
  • Nominated 11 other bloggers for this award.

Ariana’s Questions:

What is your favorite genre of book? Um, I like modern and historical fiction.

What is your favorite genre or movie? ??

What is your favorite TV show? I don’t really watch TV. But I do like HGTV!

What is your favorite animal in the sea? I love dolphins, but those aren’t exactly in the sea…..

What is your favorite animal on land? BUNNY’S!! I WANT ONE SO BAD! XD XD

Do you know another language? Yep, I’m learning French.

Do you like Converse? YES! (especially light blue) 😀

Do you read magazines? Oh yeah!

Do you have a phone? Unfortunately not.

Do you watch Marvel? No.

Do you like belts? Most of the time no.

Yay, that was fun!

Jo’s questions:

What is your biggest fear? Um……

What is the weather like? It’s partly cloudy, and our road is actually getting paved, so it’s really dusty and has a machine like smell. My little siblings are watching, and I’m in our air-conditioned attic. XD

What is your favorite hobby? Just one? Hmm, probably making stuff, especially home décor items. Although photography and blogging both tie next. 😀

Do you like being nominated for tags/awards? Well…. I like doing occasional tags and posts, but not them every week or even month. XD

What are you most looking forward to this summer? Careless summer days. Designing new things for my Etsy shop. 3 camps.

Rain or Snow? SNOW! SNOW! SNOW!

What time do you wake up on the weekend? Well on Saturday (like every other day) I have to wake up at 6:40 but on Sunday I can wake up as late as 7:45.

Is your bedroom usually clean or dirty? It’s typically pretty clean, but if I’m not picking stuff up nearly constantly then it can become quite messy. My poor sister, at least I’m trying to improve. XD

What is one of your pet peeves? Probably when I post original ideas and then people copy them. I just find that so annoying.

How long is your hair? (shakes out hair) It’s about to the end of my t-shirt sleeves.

What is your favorite thing on your desk? Um, well the desk I’m typing at currently has my camera on it, so my camera. But the desk in my room is chock full of craft supplies, so…

That was fun!

-My Wreck This Journal-

Eek, Wreck This Journal’s are so fun and I’ve enjoyed wrecking mine! I especially like the idea that it isn’t perfect, you’re just having fun! 😀







In case you were wondering, this is tea. I was hoping it would turn out a little more red.




These look like a two year old made them, well whatever…..








I hope you enjoyed looking at this! Which page was your favorite?

-Lifestyle Photography-

I know I’m supposedly supposed to post photography on my other blog, but this is LIFESTYLE photography, so…….

These photos were taken at a campground where our grandparents have an RV.




There were a few people swimming that day, and it was fun to take pictures! 😀




I love this!


Paddle boats….


I love the contrast of the two trees! 🙂


Doesn’t this look so peaceful and relaxing?


This too..


I was also able to get some video, but unfortunately I can’t upload it here. 😦


A bunch of random girls….


Delicious pork chops made by my aunt, who is a wonderful cook! 🙂


The crackling fire!




I really love this picture!


A man in a boat fishing.


The gorgeous sunset that night!


Some random campers who apparently like Ohio State. XD


I like this picture too…..



Hopefully this wasn’t too long, for you all. 😛 I do hope you enjoyed though! Have a wonderful day!
