Below are some iphone pictures of the day......
This is all I have for you in the way of fancy photography because we left home early so we could go hang out in a little slice of heaven today!!! My dad and some friends have been firewooding at some new friends' property and it's been such a God-send!!!! Today, some close friends, whose son is helping my dad, came by to pick my mom and me up and go up and check the place out.....We had the BEST day!!!! I totally felt like I was on Walton's Mountain. (please tell me I'm not the only one my age who knows that old TV show reference!!!) We had lunch with everyone who was there, we met new friends, and then I took a walk with my mom and our close friend, and then we got more history on this land, and then they took us on a fun tour of the place on their mules, "glorified golf carts" as my mom calls them!!! It was a full, rich day!!! I'm exhausted!!!! We all are!!!
Below are some iphone pictures of the day......
You guys!!!! I just made these, and many of you have probably already seen them as I've been sharing my photos and cards all afternoon on social media with the hashtag: #PPCB40cards40designs40scripturesproject!!! But I'm soooo excited for how these are turning out!!!! I'm not good at stuff like this, I swear!!! I've tried my whole life to have fancy writing!! But I've prayed for a way to bless the recipients of these cards and God has just given me these!!!!! I love them!!!! Writing Scripture has a way of changing you, too!!! If this concept sounds a little familiar to you, and you've been keeping up with the blog, then you read about this project here and here!!
Last night, I took a picture of these right before I went to bed; the lighting was perfect, and so was the subject....I just had to share it with you!!!
First of all, guys!!! It's Day 300!!! That means that we only have 65 days left to this Photo a Day Challenge!!!!! I think I exceeded the "Photo" a day, as in, very often, I posted "photoS"....a day!!! :0) Now that we got that out of the way, here's what was going on in the photos above:
I started my day with my studies....AWESOME time!!! My breakfast shake and coffee.....still not quite up to par with my appetite, I only drank part of that shake......in between my studying, I looked at Instagram, Twitter.....I took a picture of a cool quote from my Bible Study: "The world has yet to see what God will do with and for and through and in and by the man who is fully and wholly consecrated to him." Love that. I also checked out the blogs I follow.....can you believe we live in an age where we read blog posts about how to take Instagram and selfie photos?? Really?? Not to say I didn't appreciate the blog, but good grief!! It's pretty narcissistic out there!!! I also looked at a pretty blog, made my daily entry for a giveaway, and saw this funny pic on Instagram......yes!!! Does anyone else think that whenever the credit card machine asks if the amount is ok?? I mean, like.....no.....(yeah, I know I sound so intelligent right now....LOL). I also updated my Facebook page.....and speaking of narcissism, lol. Yeah, those are my selfies for the day. My hair was a mess today!!! This humidity makes it frizz, and it also makes all the baby hairs just go everywhere. Oh well. Like I've said before, once I'm done for the day, I'm done. I rarely look in the mirror again, although, I'll admit, today I did. :0)> That lumpy green thing is my jacket. I had to bring a jacket today. In August!!!! Do you hear how odd this is for me?? I got that delicious hummus wrap today....it was pretty yummy!!! I also picked up that pizza snacks thing....those are yummy, too!! Chick-Fil-A now sells coffee.....you're welcome!!! (next time I'm there, I'm trying the Vanilla flavored one...) A few stories from Chick-Fil-A: There's a girl who works there who has the exact same name as me, and same spelling!!! We bonded when my mom told her a few weeks back that she and I have the same name. We've been friends ever since. I totally wanted to ask her if we could take a selfie together for my blog, but I thought that might be weird. Tell me something, if your name was Priscilla and I asked you to take a selfie with me because my name is Priscilla, too, would you do it?? (I just asked the Facebook peeps, too.....we'll see if anyone responds!!! If you're reading this far, you're AWESOME and my new favorite person, lol!!!) One more Chick-Fil-A story: My mom and I sat right by the playroom area. Like, right by it. Yes, it was terrifying. I saw germs flying in the form of kleenex being dropped from the top of the slide, I saw little dirty feet and I saw tears. I want babies someday, but sitting by so many of them.....well, I have to admit, the baby fever and the "terrified of babies" syndrome battled.....because I mean, seriously, they are ADORABLE, too!!!! I always ponder what kind of mom I'll be when I see little ones......and will I let them play in public play areas in restaurants?? That odd pic in the last collage? I got my phone out to use as a mirror as I re-applied my lipstick (you know you do it, too, ladies!!), I set it on the table for a minute and I saw the reflection of the light fixture above it and I just had to take a picture, pretty cool, huh?? My mom needed band-aids today.....I voted for Barbie. She didn't get them. I would have..... And then I came home to these little precious monsters. Goofy little things!!!
And that is the end of this "Follow Me Around: iPhone Day"!!! Now that my week is completely messed up, I have no idea what to call "iPhone Wednesday".....I could call it "iPhone Thursday", but what if next week's iPhone Day is on a different day??? LOL
Loves and hugs you guys!!!!
Fall is on it's way!!! It's an early one, that's for sure!! These trees seem to be fading before my very eyes, but I just had to capture the dark sky, the gold field and of course, the beautiful green trees!!!
If you're wondering where iPhone Wednesday is.....my schedule has been re-arranged and so my iphone days will be on different days. I might do one tomorrow....we'll see.
Hope you guys are having a great day!!! Loves and hugs!!
My aunt was over the other day and she always has to take a look at my super girly room. Unfortunately, I had just stripped my bed to put fresh sheets on when she went in there. I thought I'd take a picture of it freshly made and done. :0) Does it surprise you that my room is so girly?? ;0)
Also, yesterday, I had already posted our Card of the Week post, and I almost posted this yesterday, but I was really tired by the time I could post it. It rained and we had the most amazing rainbow outside, and beautiful rain drops on our window!! I love how the top picture looks like bright glitter!!!! Doesn't it??? In person, it looked so much more brilliant!!!!
Last week, I mentioned that I'm designing an assortment of cards for a friend to give her daughter. I've come up with a few designs so far, and I have many more to go. I thought I'd show you guys this design for a sympathy card. My heart always breaks when I have to make one of these for someone. I put my heart into every card I make, and I really feel the reason for the cards that are sent to someone to bless them in their time of sorrow. I know sorrow. I know pain. And I can relate. Maybe that's why this one touches me so deeply. If you are reading this in a season of loss, whatever it is, I'm so sorry for your loss!!!
If you have any special requests, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'd love to make a card, or cards, that are befitting for you in your season of life: wedding, baby, birthdays, or even, sympathy.
In other news, last Thursday, I took some new cards over to the Pink Door Boutique in Brighton, Colorado!!! If you are in the area, go check out my little pink basket!!!! I'm needing to stock up and make new designs again!! I had a question today about Fall cards....what do you think?? Do you think that's a thing?? I'll make some and see what you guys think......
Did you see yesterday's adorable post?? I just had to take those pictures....they were my ABSOLUTE favorite so far!!!! At least my favorite selfies......click the link to see why!!! :0)
I hope you guys have an incredible week!!!! See you back here tomorrow!!!!
Happy, Happy Weekend you guys!!!! If this doesn't make you smile, nothing will!!!! Paul and I had the greatest time taking these photos!!! I might have a new favorite selfie session!!!! :0) He is the best for what ails you!!! Trust me, I know!!! I haven't been feeling the greatest lately, today's been ok....but my throat is just not good lately. I don't know what's up. :0(
I took a video earlier in the day, just to say hi and wish you all well!! I hope you can see it!!!!
I am a fancy card maker, photographer and blogger. I also drink coffee and eat healthy and like to look pretty. Thanks for dropping by!!! :0)
