I Wrote 15 Posts in 10 Days? ~ BTS of Camp Happy Heart

Hello friends! Last year I did a behind the scenes post for Camp Happy Heart, so I figured, why not do one this year? Especially because the circumstances of camp this year were…interesting.

Basically, we left on vacation late June. I didn’t know if we’d be back before the end of summer, so I had to take a majority of the pictures in about 10 days. Um, yeah. I wrote little diary entries to document my time blogging, and I also took some BTS pictures to share. I hope you enjoy this chaotic little post!


1:00 p.m.

I just realized that I’ll probably be out of town the whole month of July. I have the rest of this week scheduled, but I still need to type up 2 posts for next week. I also need to try and schedule posts for July…

(Less than an hour later,) 1 post has been typed up! I got distracted a lot, but 1 post in 1 hour isn’t too bad.

Just have about 14 more to do in 10 days!

8:30 p.m.

I just read Kaelyn’s post & it really inspired me to work on my own. Maybe I’ll get that done before Agents of SHIELD starts.

9:00 p.m.

I finished it! Now I just have an hour to kill before Agents of SHIELD.

One of the bunk beds broke during camp. I still haven’t found the other piece!


10:15 a.m.

I’m going to try and take photos for art week now!

10:40 a.m.

I did 2 photo parts! I just have to do the painting ones now, which means I actually have to paint something. Ugh,

11:15 a.m.

Painting has no excuse to be this upsetting. I’m going to take a break for now and then continue. I’ve done 12/15 pieces, so not too bad.

4:00 p.m.

I’m going to type up the posts from earlier up now.

…it might help if I had my memory card 🙂

4:45 p.m.

I got post 1 typed up! I would have done more, but we’re going to dinner. We NEVER eat this early.

6:45 p.m.

I’m going to write up the other post & watch Agents of SHIELD again with my dad.

I did it!

Since all of the cabins are the same, I used my phone to remember the set up of each one… 🙂


11:18 a.m.

I forgot to log when I was starting. Oops. I probably started at 10? Maybe a little earlier? Anyway, I took pics for 4 1/2 posts, but then I lost Sandy and Petal. I found them now, but the 2 guitars and the harmonica are still missing. I need to do music week, but I can’t find the instruments.

I’ve mainly been working on reading week though.

11:40 a.m.

I think I’ll take a break now. I did photos for 6 posts, so that’s pretty productive.

I used a bookshelf for the cabins/main hall


2:30 p.m.

I didn’t do much yesterday because I had driver’s ed all day. Now, I’m working on an unplanned post. Whoops. It’ll be good though. I stil have 8 posts to take photos for & 2 to type up. And…we leave in a week…

3:30 p.m.

I finished the post!

I’m really happy that I’m getting these done, but I’m also very sad that camp is coming to an end…

I use these clear elastics to help the bears hold stuff.


9:45 a.m.

I finished the paintings! I don’t know why this was so difficult for me, but I’m done with it. Hopefully I can work quicker now.

10:10 a.m.

I took photos for the 2 painting posts! Time to type them up.

See? Tye can hold the flute, but it’s not super obvious either.


2:45 p.m.

I’m going to take some pictures now.

3:30 p.m.

They’re currently uploading! I took photos for 3 posts.



5:20-5:45 p.m.

I took pictures for 2 posts. The DIY Keyboard wasn’t so bad, even though I was dreading it.

I didn’t know what to do for the parade, so I got an index card and brainstormed!


11:50 a.m.

While prepping the band photoshoot, the cello randomly started playing music. I got a litttllee creeped out. Also, I’m missing quite a few instruments for some reason.

Oof, I prooooobbbaaaabllyyyy should have set up the background before setting up the scene. Oops.

1:00 p.m.

I finished the band photoshoot! Yes, it took a while, but I am so proud of it! I was really happy with last years, but I really outdid myself! It looks 10 times better this year. Now, I just need to do the parade!

This was how I transported the bears downstairs

While prepping for the parade, I kind of lost Mischief. Yeah, he was already in the bin to transport. XD.

2:10 p.m.

I finished the parade pictures! It was a little hard because I had no idea what to do, but I’m proud of it! The bears were hard to pose though. Anyway, I’m going to upload these & then I probably won’t blog again until my trip, so this is where I leave you! I had fun though!

I used photo boxes for the parade floats.


3 posts were typed up.

15 posts had photos taken for

10 days

Once they were covered in bandanas, they didn’t look half bad.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a little behind the scenes peek!
