Ossipee



This weekend my boyfriend and I headed up North for some fresh air. Nothing but each other, a bottle of Jack, and a canoe.

All the Right Ruffles


I know I've been MIA lately. This summer has been much busier than I anticipated. I recently took over social media Free People Boston so that has taken up a lot of my time this summer work-wise. The most I've really done on a personal level  photo-wise is gain 800+ followers on Instagram (finally.) I do feel bad that I've neglected this blog in the past couple weeks. I'll be sure to update y'all on everything that's been going on this summer. 

Also if you want some day-to-day updates follow me on Instagram @19dreamcatcherz

Last week, Jacky helped me shoot content for work. I could only pick one to upload to our Instagram, but I just couldn't let them go to waste!

Here Comes the Sun


Sorry for being so absent lately. This semester was a little insane, but it's all over now. As of last Monday, I am officially finished my junior year! 

I don't have any huge plans for this summer other than working at the store. I'm hoping to take a few weekend or day trips here and there but that's about it. I'll keep you guys posted.

St. John Photo Diary (Part 2)


I took so many photos in St. John, there was no way I could possibly fit all of them in post. The second half of my trip consisted of beach, beach, and more beach. There was also a good deal of Corona, top buns, and iced coffee involved. Here's more photos of my trip! Sending out some warm thoughts!





















Goodbye St. John! I'll be seeing you!

DIY Spirit Stick


This DIY project is relatively simple in theory, but when execute it can take quite some time.

Stick painting can be fun because you can just go crazy with the design you want to paint. For this particular spirit stick, I decided to incorporate some color. I usually use a lot of white paint, but with spring in the air I thought it was time to switch things up a bit.


1. Stick (any size)
2. Acrylic paint
3. Different sized brushes. 


For this stick I decided to start off with some triangles. First a row of large pink ones and then a row of smaller green ones.



I painted a sequence of three lines of different widths to separate my main patterns just to tie everything together.

For the next pattern, I started with some green and yellow chevrons. Then I painted the knot of the branch with pink paint and filled in the holes with some white spots.

Remember, its a rarity to find a perfectly smooth stick. You're going to get a stick with knots and bumps. Embrace them. They'll make your finished product look unique.


Again, I used the three white lines to break it up. Then I moved on to paint a pattern of bright pink diamonds.


My next pattern started with yellow arrows and green accent dots. 


I painted two lines that included chevrons in their composition. Then I moved on to paint an eye in the next knot of the branch.

I typically don't like to paint the entire stick.


Once you're done you can put it wherever you like. Hang it on the wall or lean it up against something.
