This is the first post in a mini-series about my desk! The next post will be on Monday 🙂 Today, I’m going to be giving you all a tour of my desk! This was requested when I asked for post ideas- if you have any more, please let me know on this post.

An overview of my desk

Note: the table to the left (which you can just barely see in the picture, oops!) is part of my desk too, but it doesn’t have anything on it and it’s really just a place to spread out when doing homework or taking notes.

Closer shot of my desk 🙂

img_3735

This is the wall above my whiteboard- I generally keep encouraging quotes, calendars, and tools up here. (I also just realized that I still have my January calendar up- I cropped some of it out of the photo but it’s up there. oops!

img_3736

My current Verso de Memoria (Memory Verse) for Spanish class: Proverbios 3:1-8 (Proverbs)

img_3737

An adorable bible verse that a lady in our church made my mom- you bet I snatched it right up! (Actually my mom gave it to me, don’t worry)

img_3738

I honestly don’t need this anymore, but it’s a chart to remember the regular verb conjugations in Spanish. I made it toward the beginning of the school year when I was having a lot of trouble with them..

img_3739

Wow this is… not so cute? I made this a while ago, maybe I’ll make a new one to put up there.

img_3740

Now we’re onto the whiteboard! I copied this art (can you tell I’m not an artist at all?) from something I found that I liked. Great verse, but I didn’t do it very well 😦

img_3742

I’m trying to earn ~300 dollars for a Christian camp I want to go to this summer, and this is a super simple tracker I made for it 🙂

img_3743

I’m tracking the amount of practice time for piano in February, so I just printed out a cute calendar 🙂

img_3744

My handy dandy expo markers (which are totally crooked, oops)

img_3746

My little… storage tray? I normally keep books on it. Right now I have a notepad, birthday card (actually my birthday was not recent, I have no idea why that’s there…) The Scarlet Pimpernel, and a math book I got from the library.

img_3747-1

My planner!

img_3748-1

An ugly shot of my computer. Pretty self-explanatory, I guess.

img_3749-1

My random little storage thingys. The pencil pouch holds my brush pens, pens, pencils, and highlighters.

img_3750

The cute but falling apart folder holder my brothers made me. It holds all my school folders and stuff, haha.

img_3752

My random box of papers + craft supplies… it’s a mess but organized if that makes sense? I’ve had the box/drawer since age 5 which explains the stickers on the front… lol.

img_3753

This is the top drawer of that cube thingy. I put my bigger binders + books I’m reading for school in here.

img_3754

Currently reading for school:

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis (actually we just finished this, on to The Silver Chair)

The History of the Kings of Britian by Geoffrey

Richard lll by Shakespeare (we just finished this one too, Ephesians from the Bible next)

img_3756

And this horribly blurry picture of my dictionary 🙂

img_3757

My Spanish and Science binders

img_3758

Below the drawer in the cube is where I put my textbooks/manuals.

img_3783

And ending with this awful self-timer picture of me writing in my planner 🙂

 

 

Thanks for reading 🙂 Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day! Did you all read the story behind it in school? We did, every single class and then later at dinner, hahaha.

My Dream House Tour

post featured image (1)

So. I’ve been blogging twice a week for like a week now and I. Love. It. It’s so fun! I hope you guys like it too (because I’m totally not going back).  Hannah just posted her dream house tour, and I loved it so much that I decided to make mine too! I’d say that my style is pretty classic, but minimalist, and farmhouse//country//boho too. Pretty much a little bit of everything, actually!null

Exterior

Related image
I love it! It’s so natural and clean and pretty 🙂
I love this so much! All the windows xD. And those doors are just so pretty! This is like the entrance to the yard, I guess?

Need I say more?

Entry

I really like this entry for a small space because there’s seating, storage for shoes, bags, and jackets, and decorations. Entryways are really important because they are the first thing people see of your house!

Living Room

So. Pretty. I love this one! Just imagine another white couch to the right of where the picture ends.

Kitchen

In love! The green/blush accents are so pretty. And the island is so functional! The open shelving (but not too much!) and subway tile are gorgeous.

Dining Room

This is so pretty! I love all the different tones of wood.

Playroom//Family Room

This is so cute! I love how it’s kid, family, and guest friendly 🙂

Office

I would probably hog this (sorry kids) but i totally have a reason! It’s so fun and bright and girly, while still minimalistic and neat.

Bedrooms

AGG is it wrong to want this bedroom? Also pretty sure that no baby is sleeping in that crib (I hope) because those big pillows are definitely safety hazards.

This room is so fun, girly, young, and classy at the same time. I love the lights and the lamp!

I love how this boy’s bedroom is unique but not super cluttered.

Modern Farmhouse Master Bedroom

I love this bedroom! So relaxed 🙂

Bathrooms

Image result for farmhouse bathroom

This one is so pretty! I love the shower curtain.

I love this! It’s so luxurious and relaxing.

Another bathroom like the first one- I love that style!

Image result for kids bathroom

This is perfect for kids 🙂 I love it.

I hope you guys enjoyed this! I sure did 🙂

A non-expert’s overview of Bible Journaling

letter-h-hello-animation

Today I’m going to be sharing a HUGE post about bible journaling. We’ll talk about my favorite supplies, some art I’ve done, my bible, and we’ll even look at some art inspiration. Are you ready? I sure hope so!

Bible Journaling (2).jpg

To bible journal, you need a bible, so I’m going to show you guys mine.

Non-referrer link to Amazon- I bought it when it was $24 from this seller

I bought my bible in January of this year, and it’s held up beautifully! As you can see from the picture, it’s gotten rather splotchy (I have no idea how it could get dirt on it, lol) but it’s not that big of a deal. It’s also available in hot pink, but I didn’t want that. At first I planned on getting a bible cover as well but I haven’t had any need for one, so I don’t plan on getting one.

None of the pages are falling out or anything like that, and the paper is very nice. It’s not super thin like most bible’s pages, but it’s not too thick either.

I highly recommend this bible for someone who has just started bible journaling and doesn’t want to “mess up”. There are lots of simple line drawings, which are awesome and very creative (nothing I could draw, lol). Bible journaling has also really improved my hand lettering, so I’m comfy with doing lots of art, and I also put sermon notes in it.

Bible Journaling (3).jpg

Now for the fun part, XD! I’m going to show you several art example and try my best to add the supplies I used.

 

They’re not all very good pictures or art, but I love flipping through the pages and looking at all the pieces of art I’ve done.

Crayola colored pencils 24 pack $9.34 (about 39 cents/pen)

Crafting a Doll Spa Basket

Hey guys! Sorry if these images are bad quality, I’m still learning  how to take good photos. If y’all have any tips, PLEASE SHARE. Or a link to the blog post, or someone else who shared how- anything would be awesome! Anyway, I’ve just been really enjoying taking photos and feeling an inspiration to blog a ton lately, so hopefully I’ll be able to do that more. Also, if you guys have any post requests (I  have lots of ideas, but I want you guys to see things you like on here.)

So, since poor Hannah died, just take a minute to cry with me here. 

I got something.

I BOUGHT A DOLL!!!!.png

Look at the web page name, not the reborns. (I used to love reborns and drool over them but i never bought them) 

Y’know, web page name? 14 inch Curly Hair Brown eyes?

i have given away too much!!!!

But, in preparation for Elaine? Evelyn? What should I name her? Something that starts with E This unknown thing. Maybe it’s a 14 inch drawing of something with curly hair and brown eyes. No? WAHH I HAVE NOT SUCCEED IN KEEPING HER A SECRET\

Ahem. Moving on.

No, I’m serious!!!

WP_20170919_13_52_01_Pro

So first, you’ll gather everything you’ll be putting in.

WP_20170919_13_52_07_Pro

You’ll need a container to put it in. I used a round plastic container. WP_20170919_13_52_23_Pro

I also grabbed a baby washcloth to use as a mini towel. You should be able to find it. Also a small bath washcloth would work.

WP_20170919_13_52_41_Pro

I folded it and put it in the basket.WP_20170919_13_52_51_Pro

The next thing I grabbed was a small brush thing. Like a big scrubber for the dolls? WP_20170919_13_53_00_Pro

That fit nicely in front of the washcloth.WP_20170919_13_53_15_Pro

I also had a mini travel toothbrush (unused) and a mini toothpaste as well. These you will probably get at your local dentist/orthodontist, so I’m sure you have some around.WP_20170919_13_53_49_Pro

I put a small baby comb in there as well as some hairbands/doll headbands.WP_20170919_13_55_49_Pro

I added a mini floss thing (behind the pocketbac), a mini hand sanitize, and a chap stick thing.

 

Did you like it? I really do!!!

(I’m going to make a signoff soon… I promise!!!)

 

 

 

I’m back…. With Doll Target!!!!

Hey guys! I just realized… it’s been two weeks since I posted! One of those weeks was an adjustment to my online math class starting, and Y’ALL THE HOMEWORK XD It’s A LOT. And the other week was spent sitting in a dark, hot, house. (Except 2 of the days…. thanks to my dad’s coworker for inviting us over when her power came on.) I live in FL and we were hit by Irma. The storm wasn’t bad, but the power outage was. Like a month ago, a friend and I created a doll target. (Samantha– It was her idea, and it was so cool- So I didn’t copy you. I promise!!!! It was the weekend you posted your doll Target- LOL!)

I took the pictures a while ago, and I do have a video that everyone said was awesome…. but I hate the sound of my voice in videos. XD Anyone else feel the same way? So… if you can convince i will post it. Here goes!!!!

wp_20170812_13_54_40_pro.jpg

Sorry for the bad lighting. We set it up in a room that has really bad lighting, so It wasn’t awesome!

WP_20170812_14_00_07_Pro

We made this doll target sign with a sharpie and paper. You could print one out or use one from a target ad.

WP_20170812_14_00_10_Pro

YAY 50% OFF!!!

WP_20170812_14_00_19_Pro

Here is the (tiny) electronics center. We made two desktop computers.Yes that is a tissues box.

WP_20170812_14_00_26_Pro

This is the main electronics table. The table is my brother’s nabi box. The drawers organizing the books and folders are from the blue organization table. I bought it at the dollar store and use it in all my doll rooms- it’s awesome!! The sticky notes and notepads are cut from full size sticky notes and notepads. I made most of the folders, books, and notebooks, but some are from the American Girl Doll School Kit. A tip for making doll books use home school/scholastic book catalogs! Glue the pictures of books to a piece of paper wrapped around craft foam.

WP_20170812_14_00_30_Pro

This table is where I put tshirts, posters, and pictures. Like the printing area?

WP_20170812_14_00_34_Pro

This was the cashiers desk. yes that is Lanes wallet on the cashiers desk.

WP_20170812_14_05_59_Pro

Lane is here to shop for school supplies.

Yes her feet are bare.

WP_20170812_14_08_50_Pro

After picking out her favorite school supplies,

WP_20170812_14_10_48_Pro

she checks out at the cashier’s table,WP_20170812_14_11_30_Pro

And picks up her new desktop computer.

WP_20170812_14_12_18_Pro

Now she will pay.

WP_20170812_14_13_27_Pro

Hey guys! So this is my school supply haul video.WP_20170812_14_13_49_Pro

So the first thing I got is… a computer! As you can see, it came with a penguin desktop. This computer I will have to share with the other girls. I know Nora will blog on it often!!! (She would be blogging, but she’s been sick. Also, thanks Stace for taking this awful awesome photos!!!

Stacey: HEYYYY!!!!

 

Lane: Oh hi Stace….. Yeah I’m blogging on my new computer.WP_20170812_14_14_06_Pro

This is such a cute file organizer. I will use it for all the books I write.WP_20170812_14_14_43_Pro

I picked out 1 notebook and 4 folders.WP_20170812_14_14_56_Pro

This shirt is actually a gift for Ava when she runs a half marathon. ( I  (Christina) had some awesome pictures of Ava running, and a mini stopmotion (my first) but they got deleted. And i worked for like 4 hourss!!!!!! Don’t even get me started….)WP_20170812_14_15_08_Pro

Then I got some more notebooks.WP_20170812_14_15_20_Pro

I got some stuff for me when I paint (BECAUSE HANNAH GOT thrown AWAY BY MY BROTHERRRR!!! THROWN AWAY YALL!!!)WP_20170812_14_15_33_Pro

Pictures of Celebrities, WP_20170812_14_16_03_Pro

WP_20170812_14_16_43_Pro
