State Fair, Part 2: {Chainsaws, Pigs, and Unicycles}

Hello, dears!

I’m back with the second part of our adventures at the fair! After the girls saw the rodeo, we joined up with the boys and visited several other shows and attractions. Plus we got some food, because how is it a fair without food? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Enjoy some shots of a chainsaw artist, a unicycle rider, racing pigs, and more!

Fall Leaves {Art Ideas}

Hello, dears!

Today’s post is a bit different than normal. I haven’t done a crafty post in QUITE a while, but I’ve been having so much fun painting and decorating fall leaves that I wanted to share some ideas with you! These are great for fall table settings, happy mail, Thanksgiving decor, etc. Let’s get started!

Explore with Me 001 | Golden Hour Walk

Hello, dears!

I don’t know about you, but I spend WAY too much time on the computer. I could give a lot of good excuses, some of which are legitimate, but still, the fact remains. I do love being outside and especially exploring our land with my family, but I don’t have much motivation to go outside by myself because it feels like such a waste of time when I could be doing many more useful things inside. Anyone else??

But. Yesterday I was tired of being on a screen and it looked beautiful out there, so I decided to give myself a break and take my camera and just walk around. And it was lovely. Sometimes a breath ofย  fresh air is useful in itself, right?

I hope these pictures can inspire you to take a screen break (after this post, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and find some beauty where you live!

Art Dump + Sketchbook Tour!

Hello, dears!

YAYYYYY, another art post! Since my last sketchbook post in June, I’ve basically finished one sketchbook plus worked on a couple of others I have. I’ve made SO MUCH ART since the last post that it would take far too long to show you individual pictures of all of it – so I made a little sketchbook flip-through video for you guys to cut down on space needed. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you enjoy browsing through this art and maybe get some inspiration for your own!

Foggy Wanderings

Hello, dears!

I took these photos one morning when a light fog covered our farm. Unfortunately, it cleared up pretty quickly, but I was able to get some nice pictures before it did! I love the way fog makes everything just a little bit magical and enchanted-looking, kind of the way snow does in winter. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy a foggy walk with me!

Double Exposure + Experimenting with Self Portraits

Hello, dears!

I had so much fun making this post and editing the pictures for today! A few weeks ago, I spent a while practicing self portrait photography because I found a spot of beautiful lighting in our house and wanted to use it somehow. ๐Ÿ˜› I went a little overboard with the editing, ending up with some pretty and unique double exposures and black and white photos.

I hope you enjoy these experiments, and maybe get some inspiration for creative ways to edit portraits (your own or of others)!

September {Poetry & Pictures}

Hello, dears!

Today I have some more poetry + fall aesthetics for you. I’m really excited about both! I went outside just as the sun was setting the other day to get some September-y photos and then had fun editing to make them even more so. I interspersed a few pictures throughout the poem and added the rest at the end because I couldn’t bear to leave them out. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’re excited for fall, you might enjoy this post! If you’re not – well, maybe you’ll be excited for it now. ๐Ÿ˜›

Enjoy, my friends!
