Sewing Project: 3 Different Nerdy Tablecloths

Hello everyone! I spent yesterday making tablecloths, and wanted to show everyone the finished products. I can sew fairly well, but usually do not have enough time to do anything very complex. My husband and I had bought some “material squares” a few months ago. One had the periodic table of elements on it, andContinue reading “Sewing Project: 3 Different Nerdy Tablecloths”

Redirection

I have been humbled in just the few months that i have started this blog. This journey started off with set goals and ideas. From the start, there have been setbacks and disappointments.

5 YouTubers who are helping me on my photography journey (and don’t even know it)

Since I have a lot to learn about photography, and I know next to nothing about blogging, I have been watching YouTube videos to help me with my quest.

August 2019 Summary (first month)

On this journey, I want to be transparent about my progress. This way I will be more motivated to make progress if I am sharing it with the whole world. I feel the best way to show my progress is to post my “standings” regularly. At this point I plan to upload stats every mont,Continue reading “August 2019 Summary (first month)”

Down the Rabbit Hole: Trying out Stock Photography

A few months ago, I started a Shutterstock account to try and sell some of my photos. It was free to create an account, so I figured why not? I uploaded about 30 photos, and about 20 of them were approved. I am not sure what I was expecting, but my photos just sat there.Continue reading “Down the Rabbit Hole: Trying out Stock Photography”

What can I find on our morning walk?

Early Sunday morning, we decided to go for a stroll around the neighborhood. I thought to myself that this would be a great chance to find some photo opportunities. I was pushing a stroller (walks are way more fun with a LO along!) so I just had my phone camera. I figured if there wasContinue reading “What can I find on our morning walk?”
