I honestly have had the most creative and inspirational month of my life. It’s been a little over a month since I did my first ever journal blog post, and I certainly didn’t plan on taking this long of a break before doing another one. I have also kind of slacked off on regular blog posts, as I have just been so incredibly focused on other projects. One of which is something I can’t wait for, but I am not quite ready to put it out on the Internet yet. I feel like I need to perfect somethings before I can share it.

My Adventures in Photoshop and Illustrator
The new project I am working on requires me to actively use Photoshop and Illustrator. Before this project, I assumed I was relatively knowledgeable about Photoshop. I didn’t know that much about Illustrator, but I figured it would be similar to Photoshop so I would be fine. I was so incredibly wrong.
I apparently didn’t know really anything about Photoshop, and spent several long hours teaching myself how to do what seems like very simple things. Then when I finally got around to needing to use Illustrator, it was like starting the entire learning process over again, as Illustrator is pretty different from Photoshop. Yes, there are obvious similarities, as they are both Adobe apps, but they have a lot of differences. I’m hoping to keep improving on these two over the next couple weeks, and maybe it’ll make this new project a lot easier.
My Fall Fever
Over the past couple of weeks, I have had some major Fall fever. No, I don’t mean that I have been walking around craving pumpkin spice lattes. I actually don’t like Pumpkin flavored drinks at all. I’m talking about how Summer has been an absolute mess, and I need a season change ASAP. It’s been so incredibly hot and humid where I live, and I am completely over it. Summer usually is my favorite season, but this year has been brutal. I want to be able to go outside and enjoy myself, and that’s usually what Fall is all about. That and being able to start wearing leggings every day.
Bath & Bodyworks and Pinterest
I have already gone to Bath & Bodyworks and stocked up on most of their Fall scents, and if Fall doesn’t start soon I am going to end up broke as I’m spending way too much on Fall scented candles. Another thing is that if you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I am already well into pinning for Fall and Halloween. I love the aesthetic of Fall photos, and there is so much beauty in capturing the change of seasons.
I don’t really have an excuse for my excessive pinning of Halloween pins. Most of it is Halloween themed food or drinks that I think is cute and that I want to try, Let’s be honest, probably won’t ever get around to making any of them, but it’s nice to dream.
My cat Littlebit, and I used one of the new Fall edits I’m trying out
These past couple of weeks have been incredible(despite the hot and humid temperatures.) I got to work on a lot of creative projects, and I feel so fulfilled and happy with myself. This past week, in particular, has been incredibly productive for me, and I forgot how good it feels to not procrastinate all my work until last minute. Next week I will be focusing on school, and I’m house sitting for one of my aunts. I’ll have a lot of free time on my hands, and I’m planning on spending a lot of it continuing to work on my creative projects. Hopefully, I’ll have a final product to share with you all soon.
