#NaBloPoMo – In My Own Photos

By Andrea | May 6, 2015 |

More often than not, my photos tend to be of nature, and of details.  Because of that, I’m not in my own photos very often. And when I am in my instagram feed, the photos tend to be full of my shoes, my skirts, and my necklaces, but rarely all of me. How often are…

#NaBloPoMo – My Better Side

By Andrea | May 4, 2015 |

I’ve never subscribed much to the idea that one side of my face is better than the other in photos.  The only real rule I have about getting better photos of my face is that I don’t love shots that are straight on, because when I smile, I sometimes get one eye that is squintier…

#NaBloPoMo – My Passion

By Andrea | May 2, 2015 |

Today’s #NaBloPoMo photo prompt is “Your Passion.”  It was tougher than I thought to choose one thing as my passion. I did finally narrow it down to a couple of things, though. I absolutely love to quilt. The ability to create with fabric is amazing. And if there’s ever an apocalypse, my husband and I…

#NaBloPoMo – To Selfie or Not To Selfie?

By Andrea | May 1, 2015 |

I love a good selfie.  Granted, they can be totally overdone, but sometimes you just need to take one. I even went as a selfie for Halloween last year. I actually hope to eventually have a mirror cut to fit the hole and hang this as you walk into my office at work. Of course…

#OurProject52 – Out of Focus

By Andrea | April 30, 2015 |

Do you ever feel out of focus?  That’s how I’ve been feeling lately, and I know it’s been seeping into the blog.  I can’t remember the last time I had a finished sewing project to share with you. Ok, I can remember when it was, but let’s just say it was a while ago. Instead…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | April 29, 2015 |

Sewing has been slow going this week. I just haven’t felt inspired to do much. But I did get a couple more eye spy blocks finished.  They are coming along nicely, though there are no where near enough yet. The most blocks I have of any one color are blue. There are 5 of those…

Book It

By Andrea | April 27, 2015 |

4 months into my goal of reading more this year, and I’m discovering many amazing books I never would have chosen otherwise. (You can see the goals for my reading list on the 2015 Reading List from PopSugar.) I’ve been reading so much, that I had to re-arrange my shelves in the living room to…

Free J.D. Salinger Printable

By Andrea | April 24, 2015 |

Everyone seemed to enjoy my last free printable, so I thought I would make you all another one. This one has a more grungy feel and features a quote from J.D. Salinger. As with the last print, I am making this one available to you in several other color variations. Do you like to use…

#OurProject52 – Sun Flares

By Andrea | April 23, 2015 |

This week’s #OurProject52 photography challenge was rather difficult. Not because photos of sun flares are hard to take, but because the sun has been playing hide and seek all week. That meant that most of my attempts at catching a sun flare this week have turned out as more of a sun glare – taken…
