five things

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Execution is simple. Coming up with ideas for designs is always really difficult.
Yesterday I finally got a design idea. I gathered up some supplies and set them all up on the front porch. I snapped a few pictures of each arrangement, then came in a got to work. I'm really loving the new look -- especially that it's not season-based and I can keep it up for a while. [IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN A NEW DESIGN, I RECENTLY REVAMPED MY DESIGN SITE. TAKE A LOOK]

The worst part of July is when I have to go through all the pictures from the entire past year and choose only five to print and enter into 4-H. So hard. [IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE PICTURES I CHOSE, I'VE UPLOADED THEM HERE.]

I've been keeping up a really good writing streak the past week. Almost every night I've written at least half an hour in my novel. I decide from what time to what time I'm going to write, shut down the internet, turn on some music, and just write for that time. I usually end up writing longer than I had originally decided. Some things just take a little force. [I'VE ALSO DECIDED TO DO A 365 WRITING PROJECT. HELLOGOODBYE.]
