#FreebieFriday – Fall Recipe Card

HAPPY ALMOST FALL!

With the first day of autumn being September 23rd this year, I thought you would all enjoy a new freebie this weekend of a recipe card! It’s a simple design, but oh so adorable to use. I mean, look at that little squirrel in the bottom left corner. I’ll add this to my Freebie Tab in my blog for you to download if you’d like to use it to keep all of your favorite fall recipes together and in order.

Enjoy!

EST 2010

So I came to realize something this morning – I’ve had my blog now since 2010 and it’s really made an impact on me. Now, it wasn’t always hosted here at WordPress – I used to have Blogger before I transferred everything over to WordPress for 2 years – but I’ve been with WordPress itself since 2012.

In that time I’ve published 163 blogs.

163! That’s amazing! I had no idea I had that many here on the site. I know a few are old, some have been taken off for security reasons and background checks for my new job with the government etc. But damn that’s a lot! And for that I’m quite proud of myself.

I’m teaching myself to use Canva currently for work and made this quick little design for you all to enjoy. Yay for writing so much and keeping you 223 followers entertained enough to stay following me. And as my promise to you, I’ll post more often and make more designs for everyone and maybe even get into the #FreebieFriday posts for printing that I see so many people do that I use all the time.

I Am The Wind

“When you’re dumb enough for long enough, you’re gonna meet someone too smart to love you, and they’re gonna love you anyway, and it’s gonna go so poorly.” – Neil Hilborn, Ballad of the Bruised Lung

Been awhile, life’s been crazy. I’ve been trying to find the time to keep writing but I just haven’t had any. I mean I have, but I’ve had no ideas really to make me want to write anything substantial in my opinion. It’s been a blur to be honest, I can’t believe a year has almost gone by since myself and guy started dating again.. and it makes me feel semi good, that I can make it better than the last time we dated since we both effed up the last time and several times after that. Seems like we can’t just get it right.. Maybe this time won’t be so bad… here’s to hoping!

I’ve taken some photos recently, with guy’s other camera the Sony a6000 and I like it. But I only like it with the 90mm Macro since it’s amazing. I kind of want it. But there’s no way I can afford the lenses for it. Yes, I can borrow his, but what’s that going to do for me should something happen with myself and him. I will never give up my Canon camera for something else. I would only add to it. I plan on trying to start a collection of some sorts and when I finally get a home, I will have a camera closet for all my things.

Here are a few shots of the Sony a6000 that I took just yesterday around Nanticoke, PA.

When you’re tired of waiting and time is not on your side
When you’re tired of hating me, you no longer want to hide

It’s time for another session of relaxation and tea bath before my roommates get home and take their long shower. I’ve been thankful enough to get to take some nice showers lately thankfully, and it’s helping my mood a lot surprisingly. *hand clap* Off I go because then I’m going to sleep forever tonight, maybe I’ll put my hair in curlers again. We’ll see since it seems to poof then I use them, lol!

Cheers,

If I Lose Myself Tonight…

It’ll be by your side. 

Good evening everyone. It’s about 9:30 PM and I’m sitting here at my computer and have been since 2 PM working and then doing some graphic designs since I haven’t in a very long time. I needed to take my mind off some things, and just actually use my computer for once. I should be playing games, but I really don’t feel like it. I know. Bad nerd, right? But, I’m an artist, and I haven;t embraced that part of me recently at all. Not to mention now I need to work tomorrow for longer hours because today was a bust. I worked for 5 hours today. I need to do more. So, Friday I’m waking up early and then Saturday morning I’ll do some more so I can get in at least 30 something hours because I need the money if I won’t have a job come October.

So I’d like your opinion on some things right now. Black, White, or mixed. I think I like the full white one myself to be honest and I think that’s what I’m going to go with eventually, but I’d still like your input on which you like better. Or if I should change it all around completely. This is something I just threw together quickly because well, I needed to do some art and I always seem to do banners for this page. As a friend just said, “The white eye and bird looks more unsane.” And I kind of like that, and it grew on me more.

Well that’s all for now, I might have more tomorrow for you since I haven’t written in a long time, I need to get back on my game and write at least 5 a month to keep those stats up where I like them. It makes me happy that I have so many views on my blog. It’s been 2 years and I’m only now seeing the views come in and it makes me feel awesome that people car enough to read about me.

If you only die one, I want to die with you.

Cheers,

Hump Day Help

Greetings, folks!

So I wanted some input on these I made for my photography. I asked a couple friends about their ideas and I’m going to be altering them to encompass their opinions as well. But for now, I’m working on business cards and need to know thoughts.

Now, some things people have said so far to me include: take out location, might be too busy with the bokeh on the back, change the color of one letter on the front to red to stand out, put the K correctly on the front so people understand.

I agree with some of them. I’m going to take out the location off the back. I think I’m also going to change the front “K” to red, but still keep it backwards. It adds a bit of flair in my opinion and I’m not normal so, I’m sticking with thay decision. I think it’s sleek and interesting, but I’m not too sure about the back.

Your opinions are greatly appreciated on this one!

Anyway, it’s hump day and only 2 more days of 8-430 working this week. And I even have some OT in my schedule for this week (only 45 minutes but still.. that’s still some.) I wish we could do unlimited OT.. I’d be working all the time since I need the money.  But then that’d be frowned upon and I wouldn’t be allowed. Hence,I need a new job. 😦 or a part time one on top of this one. Something to save for small car things and Vegas in October.

More later, I need to get some sleep. I’m exhausted and haven’t been sleeping well again for all this week. Go figure right?
