Tennessee Photos


Hi there!

We recently went to the Great Smoky mountains in Tennessee and we went to Cade’s Cove and Roaring fork to look at scenery. I took a great bit of photos I thought i’d share with you! here they are:


This was entering Cade’s Cove.


This was the first mountain view you see. We were there right before their annual spring flowers were blooming, although we did see daffodils. This field right now is probably full of wildflowers(;


The road (it’s one way, that’s why it’s so narrow) they tried to keep natural, so some of the roads go straight through a creek. That’s why there’s water on the road in this picture.


(sorry this is so blurry) We were driving along and I noticed something red in the tree. I was able to get a photo of this woodpecker. We don’t have many of these kinds of woodpeckers in our area of Georgia. It doesn’t really look like it, but this is a very large bird. (Well, not HUGE, but larger than average)



Cade’s Cove has lots of very photogenic, old, old cabins.




This is a very old church. (well, the steeple of it, anyway) I was taking this photo through the car window and something about the lighting or something made the top of this photo blue. Hmm… (It does look kind of cool though)


Oh, I love deer! (except for when they chew on your garden) The national park has lots of wildlife.


You can ride horses for a day through Cade’s Cove.


Look at this bark!


Here are some more deer. Look at the fawn! so sweet(:


I thought this was cool. We were driving through a creek again(:


Well, I hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for more posts soon!

Roll-up pencil carrier


How is everybody? Well, I have probably told you before, but I love to sew,  so I thought I would should y’all my newest project! I love to try to create new projects.

My friend loves to Crochet and Knit, and she said she just had her picks laying ing a box with her yarn, so she asked if I could make a bag or something like that so they could be organized. And after contemplating what it would look like, I made a Pencil/crochet hook/Knitting needle carrier/case. (Whoa, that was a lot of slashes)

Here is what it looked like after I finished it:



I made it to fit 20 pencils, but it ended up 21 instead. (I wonder how that happened?) I decided that I would use a ribbon loop for the end, but when you roll it up, (below) I realized you can’t tie it. The next time I make this I will probably use long ribbon tails so you can tie it in a bow in the back. (but just for Crochet needles it didn’t matter that much(:  )


This is how it looks rolled up with pencils in it.




…In action… (;


Well, that’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this! Stay tuned for more sewing projects soon. What do y’all think about a photo tutorial? That might be neat.

Art Day!

Art Day#8-2

Well, Hello!

It has been quite the long while since I’ve posted! a bit over a month! Oh dear. Well, anyway, I remembered about Art day, but I never ended up doing it, but I thought today would still be fine. Let’s call it fashionably late, shall we? (:

I’ve been doing a good bit of watercolors lately. I stumbled across a store that sold watercolor brush pens, (the kind you fill with water) so I’ve been testing it out a good bit. I hope you enjoy!


This was the first thing I did when I got the brush. This one was sort-of a tester.


(Sorry for the wonky lighting) I’ve seen this little saying on a lot of things lately, Door mats, Cups, Bags, Bracelets, lots of things, so I thought it might be fun for these flowers.


This one was is one of my favorites. I think I like watercoloring loose flowers/leaves type things so far. Does anyone watercolor? do you have any ideas for my next project? Let me know in the comments(:


This is the brush pen I have. it’s called a water-in watercolor brush pen, and it says it has a medium tip. I think you can get them off of Amazon and places like that.


This was the next thing I did. This is what Cinderella’s mother’s line from the real-life Cinderella movie. I painted the wreath on canvas so I could put it in my room.


It blended pretty well with my typewriter. I’ve said before that I write letters back and forth to friends, so sometimes I use the typewriter for letter writing(: Soon I am planning to do a room and/or desk tour, so you will most likely see this soon.


I was thinking of quotes for art, and my Mom reminded me of this quote: “the earth laughs in flowers” by Mary Oliver. I painted this and added that quote. This was one of the first watercolor paintings I’ve done without the paint bleeding. What do you think?


I have seen people doing these little circles recently, so I thought i’d give it a try! This circle is about the size of the palm of your hand.


This is a glimpse of my *well loved* watercolor palette(;


This is part of a Psalm that I though would fit nicely with the flowers.

Ugh. I know this is a poor amount of art for a month away, but that is all I have this time. I will (most likely) have more on Saturday(; Thank you so much for reading!

Bye for now,
