The BEST craft for summer

While it’s always nice to get a break off from school, sometimes it’s difficult to come up with things to do. But what I love about time gaps such as this is that they can increase your creativity, and help you try new things to serve as your entertainment.

Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been doing to spend some of my time during summer break. Yesterday, I mentioned that I got some new Rainbow Loom supplies, including some rubber bands and a hook. But the question still remains; what do I do with them?

Welp, here’s your answer!

Within the past 3 days, I’ve made a total of 12 mini 3D foods out of my rubber bands, all of which I made off of tutorials from the YouTube Channel feelinspiffy, the owner being the original creator of each of these super cute designs. To be honest, these are so fun (and easy) to make that it’s hard to stop once you’ve made it a hobby. Plus, they are so stinking cute!

Believe it or not, at one point I made over 50 of these, all either foods, objects, or characters, but I lost them in a move about two years ago. While I was pretty sad that I lost all of my creations, recently it dawned on me that it gave me a chance to make new “happy foods” that are even better than the first. And summer break is the perfect time to start.

I was a little nervous to get back into one of my old hobbies, since I wasn’t sure if I actually remembered how to use my loom. But I guess looming is one of those things where when you learn it, you’ve got it forever, as it immediately felt as if I never stopped. Thank God that I didn’t have to start from scratch LOL.

Overall, I wanted to post this today for two reasons. First, to show you all that it’s good to use free time as opportunities to use a little creativity. And second, that even when it seems like your work has dissapeared before your eyes, it is never too late to get back up and start again.

Have an amazing rest of your day or night, everyone! I’ll see y’all later! 💖

Craft supplies and a sweet surprise | Go Out With Me #5

What’s up, everybody! I hope you all are having a happy day or night!

Today, Goodmommy told me that she had to go out of the house to do some basic errands. Since I needed some more rubber bands–which I use on my Wonder Loom to create bracelets, necklaces, rings and other tiny creations–and I hadn’t been out of the house for a while, today would be the perfect opportunity for me to do so.

We had such an amazing time having our routinely Girl’s Day Out, and as always, I documented the whole day to share with you all in another episode of my Go Out With Me series. Let’s begin, shall we?


After a short visit to our local convenience store, we made a brief stop to Micheals, my favorite store to buy all things arts and crafts.

The best part about every visit to this artsy playground in particular is that there is color EVERYWHERE. As a person who loves bright and bold colors, I’m always searching through the aisles to see what’s new on the shelves. Everything is so exciting to look at that it almost makes me want to buy half of the store.

After a bit more band hunting, I finally found the Rainbow Loom aisle. And I was met with a color explosion . . . literally.

I actually started looming bracelets in Preschool. Then I stopped for a bit and made more advanced projects from 3rd-5th grade. After that, another break. And now I’m starting again. It’s kind of one of those phases that seems to come and go periodically.

However, considering that summer break is still far from over, resuming my looming hobby will surely help to spend some time.

Little did I know that Goodmommy had a sweet surprise in store for me; a snack from Panera Bread, which was conveniently just across from the strip mall in which Micheals was located.

The smell once we stepped inside was so fresh and airy, matching perfectly with the bakery atmosphere. At the front desk was a huge display of baked cookies, cupcakes, and other pastries. Next time we go, I’ll be sure to take a picture to give you guys a quick overview of their menu.

We ended up ordering a strawberry flower-shaped sugar cookie for me. I’ve loved them ever since I was a little girl, and they have been my usual whenever we go to Panera Bread.

Goodmommy ordered a cinnamon bun—which kind of surprised me, since she had never ordered it before—before she let me pick our seats, we prayed, and starting chowing down on our desserts, which happened to be my first meal of the day. Although that’s very rare for me, I wasn’t going to complain when I had my favorite cookie waiting to be eaten!

Eventually, my Goodmommy asked me if I wanted to try her large dessert. Although I agreed, I didn’t expect much of it taste wise, considering that my cookie had already satisfied my taste buds. But as soon as I took a bite . . . Panera Bread cinnamon buns easily became my favorites!

The cinnamon buns ended up being so shockingly good that we each had to get our own to bring home! Getting dessert like this is especially rare for us, as we only do it one to two times a year. However, we know that as long as you do so in moderation, eating a dessert every now and again doesn’t hurt.

As a quick review of all my purchases, I ended up getting a Rainbow Loom band Jumbo Bucket—filled with 8,000 rubber bands total—a 600 pack of white bands, and a pink hook with a metal tip to replace the plastic ones that I’d used for years.

Overall, the quality of everything was great—which makes sense, because Rainbow Loom is the best brand to buy items like this—and I got started on another project as soon as we got home and fed my betta fish, Peace.

Oh, and just in case you’re wondering what happened to our cinnamon rolls, they were gone within minutes after eating lunch.

P.S. You better watch out Cinnabon, because you’ve got some serious competition.


As any day with my Heavenly Father and Goodmommy , we had such an amazing time today, and I thank God that we were able to spend it as a family.

LET’S CHAT~Do you like desserts? If so, which one is your favorite?

Thank you so much for joining me today, and I will see y’all next time; peace in! ✨❤️✨

4 Quick and Fun Writing Activities To Seize Writer’s Block (Reblog)

Hey everyone! I’m back for another amazing post! If you are a writer like me, then you probably won’t be surprised that I find it boring when I write the same things over and over again. Writing is super fun, but like any other activity, working on the same thing too many times can cause you to become bored or even experience writer’s block. 

So, how do you get rid of the feeling of not knowing what to write next? Well, today I’m going to list some different writing exercises that you can do in order to rid writer’s block (or boredom) goodbye!

So, let’s get started!

  1. Pick a word and describe it. 

Although this idea is very random, I think that this is the goal when trying to find creative ideas. Try to pick a word, whether it inspires you, peeks your curiosity, or maybe even interests you, and write a paragraph about what the word means to you or how it has affected your values of life.

2. Write about what your pet would be like or look like if they were human. 

If you’ve ever had a pet, I’m sure you know that we love them and treat them like they’re people. However, have you ever thought about what they would be like if they were actually a person? How would they look? What would they like to do? Do you think you would like them, and vise-versa? These questions are amazing ways to improve your creative thinking and writing skills.

3. Write down some common opinions that you disagree with or some uncommon opinions that you agree with. 

There are a lot of cool theories and common (or uncommon) theories out there. Try listing some opinions that you may or may not agree with. This is a really good writing activity for when you’re bored. It will also be a great help if you want a creative activity to inspire your future writing projects!


4. Write a list ranking your favorite songs by your favorite artist. 

Do you have an artist that you absolutely adore? Even if you don’t listen to their music for a while, you always find yourself going back to their music? Well, if you do, try ranking your favorite songs by your favorite artist from most favorite to least favorite. This can be a great activity for music lovers, and it might even get you hooked to a really catchy tune…again, lol.

I hope these 4 Quick and Fun Writing Activities helped you get rid of your writer’s block. Finding fun and creative prompts to write about can help when you need to get those creative juices flowing. Writing is art, and like any other art project, the mistakes and quirks that you include in your writing can help you improve as a writer.

Have an amazing day everyone! 

5 Quirky Art Ideas for Summertime

Hey, y’all! Happy Happy Friday! ♡

I don’t know about all of you, but in the United States, summer break is now OFICIALLY in session. Now that many students have much more time on their hands than usual, it’s likely that you may have the urge to get a little artsy to celebrate the sunny season of summer.

If this is you, then you’ve come to the right place; here is a list of 5 quirky ideas for art activities to get you into the summer spirit. Let’s get this party started!

1. Origami Art

Recently, I’ve been getting into the hobby of origami, which I believe is the perfect activity for the summer. All it requires is a piece of paper. Origami boats and airplanes are the perfect way to make the most of a sunny day out with your family, and get crafty while doing it. And you know what could make it more fun– a race to see which plane or boat is the fastest! Especially if you have a family who loves some friendly competition.

2. A Photo a Day Collage Board

There’s this trend called “a photo a day” or something like that, where people document their summer by taking one photograph every day. A really great idea if you want an art project that contains many of your summer memories is to print each picture and combine them into one summer collage to go in your bedroom. Cute, right!?

3. Beach Landscape Painting

Landscape paintings are a super creative way to make the most of the beauty of every season. But since summer is a time of year with such vibrant, sunny colors, I also find it one of the best seasons to use as a painting reference. With any type of landscape painting, a good tip is to use a photo of the beach or other summer scene that you are trying to capture, and let that be your guide to making your masterpiece more detailed. After all, with summer break, we have all the time in the world!

4. Paint on Rocks and Seashells

Beaches are busier than ever in the summer time, and that means that seashells and rocks are likely to be lying around. Why not make some art with nature and paint your custom designs on the gems that lie in the sand. Not only is this really fun to do with family and friends, but they serve as awesome mementos of your sunny memories with those that you love.

5. Doodle on the Sidewalk with Chalk

People have been drawing with chalk for hundreds of years, and if you didn’t notice, it’s now making a huge comeback. I really like this idea, considering that you don’t need a bunch of supplies to do this, and it practically screams summer. Hours of doodling on the sidewalk is a perfect way to pass some extra time. Just remember to take a photo of your work, when you’re done; chalk doesn’t last forever!


Hopefully, you got lots of inspiration from these cute ideas to make your summer a little more artsy. I know that I’m going to have to do a lot of the items on this list this season, and I am very grateful that I was able to share them with you all.

LET’S CHAT~Do you have any art ideas for the summer? Feel free to share in the chat!

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everybody! See you next time! ♡

I did it once…and I did it again ♡

Every Easter, Goodmommy is kind enough to get me a gift. And this year, the present in question was one unlike never before. It is obvious that Goodmommy was paying attention to the fact that I had been getting much more involved in art lately, as she decided to buy a ceramic rainbow paint kit as my 2022 Easter present! Pretty cool, right?

With a little TLC and a few hours of painting, I was able to finish my decoration. Ever since, I’ve kept my rainbow in my room right beside the end of my bed. It serves as a constant reminder to me to dream big.

If you’d like to see the post in which I shared the process of completing this masterpiece, feel free click HERE.

As it turns out, Goodmommy ended up liking the gift that she bought for me more that I had expected. So much so that the next time she stopped by Michaels, she bought another kit for herself LOL. As soon as she asked if I could paint it for her, I was up to the challenge.

Now, what was a little different about this project is that Goodmommy didn’t want me to use any of the paints from the actual kit–aside from the silver glitter–so that she could display her rainbow in her room, like me. She narrowed down the colors to red, black and white. I was honestly really happy that she said that; it gave me a chance to do something different and unique.

And what do you know…the end results were gorgeous!


I honestly wasn’t expecting it, but I think I like Goodmommy’s rainbow just as much as mine. While I think the colors match her room much more, I love how the diamonds make the red look so luxurious. The design is super simplistic and minimalist, but at the end I think that’s what really made everything come together so nicely. And it makes me even happier that Goodmommy was elated with this masterpiece from her Goodbaby.

LET’S CHAT~Which rainbow do you prefer? Why do you like it the most?

Thank you so much for your support! I’ll see you later, y’all! ✨

A landscape painting in honor of spring… ♡

Happy Saturday, everybody! I hope you are all having a beautiful day or night!

Although there are a lot of things that I love about weekends, one of those things happens to be that they give me plenty of time to focus on my hobbies. With no live classes to attend or studying to do, the weekends give me time to simply indulge in visual art, photography, reading, and simply relaxing.

Today, I wanted to take advantage of my free time and make a landscape painting in honor of the beautiful season of spring, and it honestly turned out even better than I was envisioning! As always, I had to show you guys my work of art and the steps that I took to make it. Enjoy, everybody!


First of all, I want to say that I used most of the colors provided in my acrylic paint set for this project. I was expecting to use no more than 10, but I ended up using about two times that. To be fair, a lot of mixing came in to play to get the exact hues that I wanted. However, I really like to experiment by mixing my paints, so this was a really fun process.

The first thing I did to start my painting was paint the sky. I wanted it to have a little bit of an ombre vibe (meaning that the colors progressed from dark to light) throughout the background. The sky starts off as a sky blue, and then transitions into a coral. Underneath that, I added little humps to resemble mountians, yellow for a corn field, and a solid green for grass.

Although I added some finishing touches to the background before adding all of the greenery to the painting, I think it looks pretty great!

After using some more paint to make the colors a little more solid, I decided to add a couple pine trees in the far background, as well as a tree on the right, which serves as a focal point for the entire painting. I also wanted to incorporate the classic spring colors with some flowers, which I painted in an abstract style. I really think that decision added to the simple yet really magical design of the painting.

When I finished adding the finishing touches, I was super happy with what I saw: an absolute masterpiece!

Painting this creation was a really fun challenge. A lot of thought went into how I could make this painting really come alive to tell the story of spring, and I really enjoyed that. Every piece of art that I make has a vision behind it, and I thank God that I was able to turn this blank canvas into something that exceeded my expectations.

LET’S CHAT~Have you ever painted a landscape? If you have, did you enjoy it?

Have a beautiful and blessed day everybody! God bless you all! ✨

National Apple Pie Day (+ my original poem)

Literally a month ago (April 13th) I was inspired to write a poem about apple pie, since Goodmommy had just bought us one for the first time in a little while. Ironically, today happens to be National Apple Pie Day. Apple is one of my favorite flavors of pie, right after sweet potato. To celebrate this delicious National Day, I will be sharing my original poem “Old-Fashioned Apple Pie.”

Although this will be the second time that I posted this poem on my blog–and you can view the first time by clicking HERE–I wanted to incorporate it into this post to celebrate the National Day and give any of you who have yet to read my poetry a chance to do so.

A golden shell
flakes away
As warm, bright apples 
dance along my tongue
Criss-crossed crust
Gaps every couple bites
Sweet mingles with succulent
In an old-fashioned 
apple pie

In my mouth
the dessert takes flight
Like a butterfly that flutters with grace
Across the light blue sky
Every bite makes you want another
It’s hard to say goodbye
To the perfect treat to munch
On a friendly,
family Sunday brunch

And when the journeys over
You look down at your plate
And see nothing but humble crumbs

It’s really nice when you write something, let it sit for a little while, and then return to it with a fresh mind. I find it almost like how a home-cooked meal tastes better after the flavors blend over time. Now reviewing this creation, I begin to appreciate it more. For my first ever free-verse poem–which is drastically different compared to the tight rhyme schemes that I usually incorporate into my other poems–I truly think that this is spectacular. (Thank God!)

Hopefully this will inspire you that not only is it good to try new things at times, but also that when it comes to writing, sometimes we just need to take a break. And when we’re done, go back and review what we created.

Today’s advice: It makes it easier to see the beauty in your creation when you simply let it sit.

Thank you so much for reading! Have a blessed day, and may God bless you all! ✨

Does anybody remember these … ?

This afternoon, I was doing nothing but watching TV, eating a snack, and talking to my Goodmommy and betta fish. Considering that I had no school work to do–aside from short study sessions for my up-and-coming up FSA tests–I decided to do something productive with a simple art project. And I already had an idea for what I wanted to make: an origami chatterbox.

Now, for those of you who are unaware of what a chatterbox actually is, I will explain: it’s a really fun game that you make out of folded paper. In the folds, you create little messages under different tabs, which range from number 1-8. Although chatterbox is my preferred name, they are also dubbed as fortune tellers, cootie catchers, whirlybirds, and more.

When I attended in-person public school from kindergarten to third grade, I used to see kids making these ALL THE TIME. I always found them super fascinating to look at, but I never learned how to make one–at least, if I did learn, I don’t recall LOL. That being said, today seemed like the perfect opportunity to make a few paper chatterboxes of my own. After a quick search through Google, I was able to find a simple tutorial on YouTube, and I got right to work!

Even though it took me two attempts to actually get the instructions, once I was able to complete one, I was on a roll. Chatterboxes are extremely fun to make considering that the instructions are simple, and they don’t require a large load of supplies. All that I used to make one was a piece of paper, Posca paint pens in four colors, and a pen.

My favorite part of the whole process is probably the decoration aspect. Either that, or adding quirky messages to each of the tabs. Adding the color to the game brings it all together, and makes it look more interesting compared to a bare piece of folded paper.

Each one of my 3 products has a different design. One has dots with inspirational messages, the second has flowers with icebreaker questions, and the third one has an 8 Ball design with short answers to simple questions that the player can ask.

It was a lot of fun to find a way to make each chatterbox unique in its own way–the more comfortable I got with making these, the more details I put into each one that I made.

This is a project that allowed me to incorporate a lot of creativity without being to demanding. Plus, it serves as a great game that I can play with my family and friends when we have some spare time on our hands. In the end, all three of my chatterboxes look super cute: I might even make a few more, after awhile.


Although I didn’t know what to expect before I started this art project, I must say that now I am a little obsessed LOL. Maybe it’s because I’m that type of person who really likes to fidget with things–I almost always have to be touching something. That’s why little trinkets like this are super satisfying to me. Not to mention the fact that they’re super fun to make!

Depending on the response that I get on this post, I may even make some more for you all, in the future.

LET’S CHAT~Have you ever heard of or seen a chatterbox? And if you have, have you ever made one?

Have a beautiful, blossoming, and blessed day, everybody! May God bless you all, and I’ll see you next time! ✨

Happy Mother’s Day ~ 5/8/22

I wanted to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to you, your mothers, and anyone that you know who is a mother. Our mothers (and motherly figures) are some of the most special people in the world. Thank you to every woman who has nurtured, cared for, and lent their wisdom to another.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, I decided to hand-paint a gift for my Goodmommy (grandmother and motherly figure) who I am a greatly thankful for. I wanted to do something special, and give her a gift that I made myself. Considering that I’ve been painting very frequently most recently, I decided to make a painting that Goodmommy could hang up in her room to remember this Mother’s Day.

I thank God that I was able to finish this last minute. In the end, the painting ended up gorgeous, and the colors will look great inside of Goodmommy’s bedroom.

We plan on making this a Mother’s Day tradition in our home. This whole process was a super fun challenge; I’m excited to see the idea that God will give me next year.

Once again, Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I’ll see you next time! 🌹

6 Simple Photography Tips for Higher-Quality Photos

Photography is a form of art; it is a skill that can be perfected and strengthened. And even better, anyone can get started! All you need is a camera, whether it is your phone camera, an instant camera, a mirorless camera, or a wide variety of other choices. And considering that May is National Photography Month, it’s probably the perfect time to start taking more photos.

When it comes to taking high-quality photographs, there is a lot of techniques and rules that need to be mastered in order to take your photos to the next level. Whether you are a beginner who is just getting started or an intermediate who wants to learn more, here are a few tips to help make your photos look more polished.

Every photo included in this list was taken by me and therefore belong to me. Therefore, they are not meant for any use by any one who views this list. All Rights Reserved.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Keep Your Camera Steady

One required element of a photograph is a clear and focused image. That means that shaky hands and blurry images are a no no. This is a skill that I had to learn to master, and I still have to remember to hold my camera steady to this day. When you begin to use both of your hands, with the camera close to your body, you will begin to see a huge difference in the quality of your photographs.

Experiment with Different Angles

Believe it or not, some objects and organisms do have a “good side,” or a pose that allows you to get the essence of the subject. Experimenting with the perspective or angle that is the most flattering for the subject of your choice can make the focal point more obvious. We want the subject to be the first thing that the viewers’ eyes focus on. The right perspective = a more composed photograph with a clear subject.

Take Advantage of Lines

Horizontal, vertical, diagonal, curved, implied, converging, and leading lines can all help improve the amount of visual interest that your photo portrays. Using varying amounts of line in a photograph can make the photo just a little more interesting to look at. In other words, lines can make a statement.

For more information on the types of lines in photography, please click HERE.

Wait for the Right Moment

When you are taking a picture of an animal or person, it may take a little while to get a good shot. You may even have to click a few times before you are satisfied. That being said, sometimes it is best to watch the someone or something that you want to photograph, and wait for the perfect moment to snap the photo. A substantial part of taking good photographs is patience: better photos take practice, and with effective practice comes lots of patience.

Take Photos in the Morning or Evening

You maybe wondering why these particular times would be the best opportunities to shoot your shot. Two words: natural light. In order to get proper lighting in your photographs, you need to consider both the setting and time for day that you take your photos. Besides, sunrises and sunsets make for great scenery.

Digital Editing is Your Friend

In all scenarios, you might not get the exact lighting that you were envisioning. Maybe you want the colors to look more saturated or mellow. Remember that as photographers, photo editing software is our friend. Therefore, if you are considering being a professional photographer, you may want to invest in a good program that will allow you to edit your photos succeeding taking them.


Photography is probably one of the most underrated forms of art. However, as a person who enjoys art in many forms, I will also say that photography is one of the most fun.

I hope that wherever you are in your photography journey, that these tips were able to help you perfect your skills, and take your photographs to the next level of awesomeness!
