    A letter to my pets…

    by

    Dear pets, Thank you all for making my life happier. I don’t know what I would do without either of you. Dash, thank you for the daily kisses and cuddles. Hermie, I know you’re in a tank, but I appreciate you coming out of your burrow to see me when I come home. You’ve both […]

    A “natural” image

    by

    For my second assignment this week, I chose to play around with photoshop. I used GIMP followed by Microsoft’s Paint 3D to create the image below. This kind of software was completely new to me. At first, I thought to make a stencil I hade to go in and trace it with the pen functions. […]

    Back at it Again with Dog Content

    by

    For this assignment, I used the Collage Maker app to make three collages of my three pets! Two dogs, Dash and Max, and my hermit crab Hermione. Some pictures were taken this week, some are older. I chose this assignment because animals, but especially my pets, have played a large role in “my story”. Animals […]

    Uncomfortable eyes…

    by

    This assignment was humorous. The task was to get a photo of someone and use photoshop to make their eyes massive, like in Alita: Battle Angel. So I took this photo of me: I used the Samsung Photo Editor app on my phone. It has a very simple layout, so for easier edits like this […]

    What Makes a Good Photo?

    by

    The reading this week was insightful, and it encouraged me to look at past photos with a more creative eye. It also gave me a good amount of inspiration for this week’s photo assignments. A few of these tips I already use in common photo taking practice. Upon reading more about each, I already play […]

    My Life with Photos

    by

    At my house we have a special shelf. This shelf houses hundreds of precious memories with carefully handwritten messages. Some photos dating back to my parents in high school! My mom is a champion scrapbooker. Growing up, she had a room dedicated to the storage of her supplies and photos with a table and chair […]

    Week 3: A week of letters…

    by

    This week I decided to tell stories through letters. First, I wrote a letter to my 11 year old self. This was very encouraging and helped me see how much I’ve grown. The traumas that once seemed like my world was crashing down are now experiences I look at with fondness. Without those, the good […]

    10 years from now…

    by

    A letter to my future self.. Hi me! I bet you’re working to help everyone get along better. Maybe an ambassador? Maybe a humanitarian? I still don’t know what I want to be, but at 31 you’ve figured everything out. You still believe talking through issues and loving everyone you meet can help make the […]

    Dear Future Husband

    by

    A letter to my future husband… Dear Husband, Have we met? Where are you? What are you doing right now? How tall are you? Do you have a dog? What’s your favorite movie? What about your favorite food? There so many things I want to learn about you. I suppose we’ll have all our lives […]

    To Mother Dearest

    by

    A letter to my mother… Hi Mom! I just wanted to take the time to tell you how much I love and appreciate you. You’ve been the absolute best mother I could possibly have. You are an excellent listener, wonderful hugger, and you make delicious macaroni and cheese. Your independent yet loving spirit is what […]

    Dog lost? We got you.

    by

    Wednesday we found a lost dog at my church. He was an absolute love-bug! We named him Sprocket. He is the inspiration for this create.. We posted to lost dog pages. He had no collar and wasn’t chipped. After waiting three days he is now at a shelter waiting for someone to find him. If […]

    A Letter to My Past

    by

    For my first weekly writing assignment, I am choosing to write a letter to my 11 year old self. For context, my father was United States Air Force. We moved every 3-4 years to a new state. While this was a great adventure and it definitely brought me closer to my family, especially my younger […]

    Inconceivable: A story analysis

    by

    The Princess Bride is a movie from 1987 based off the book written by William Goldman. Growing up, the movie was one of my favorites. The fairytale-esque comedy portraying a village-boy-turned-pirate finding and rescuing his one true love. A princess whose heart has become cold opening up to love again after finding the return of […]

    Empty “moon”

    by

    For my fourth Daily Create this week I submitted a photo of emptiness. This actually isn’t a photo of the moon, rather it is a photo of a microscopic organism from my biology class. I cropped it, added a vignette effect, and lowered the brightness of the picture. Finally, I researched and found an enticing […]

    Week 2: The beginnings

    by

    Now that our introduction chapter is closed, the beginning of our story has begun! This week we were to complete four Daily Creates, three assignment bank prompts, a reflection, and begin to comment on everyone’s work. My first experiences with the daily creates were quite enjoyable. The Catastic Poetry create was amusing, and looking through […]

    More thematic thoughts…

    by

    After another week of pondering and reading through classmates’ posts, I think the general consensus is sharing what others find interesting about us, or maybe finding that out through this course. Our uniqueness is displayed by our experiences and personality quirks. I enjoyed Madeline’s thoughts on the theme, she examined a more specific approach that […]

    The Dreaded Purple Pen…

    by

    My caption on today’s Daily Create was inspired by my 11th grade English teacher. She always corrected our papers with a purple pen. It was iconic throughout my school, and even led to my friend using one to peer edit papers. He still uses one now as a senior in college!

    How good at drawing are you really?

    by

    For my third assignment from the assignment bank this week, I found this fun little activity! You go to https://quickdraw.withgoogle.com/ and you draw six quick images for the computer to guess. You have twenty seconds for each drawing, and the computer guesses while you work. It is a lot like Pictionary, minus the opposing team. […]

    Is that a camera? OH NO.

    by

    For my second assignment this week, I chose to share my favorite picture I’ve taken with you all. Now, technically, this is three pictures. I used a collage maker to put them all side by side like this. This is my dog, Dash. He hates having his picture taken; if I’m being honest, I don’t […]

    When someone eats your leftovers…

    by

    It was a rainy Thursday night at the end of finals week. I had completed my exams to the best of my ability but was drained. Mentally, my brain felt like pudding. I walked into the kitchen and opened the fridge. Like a starved beast I scoured the shelves, searching for the food I had […]

    Theme: What’s (y)our Story?

    by

    We’ve all heard some saying about how everyone is unique or different. Cliches saying only you can forge your path are also popular. Our stories are forged by both unforseeable events as well as the choices we make. I think an interesting take on this theme includes not only showing why we are passionate about […]
