Hello friends! Happy Black Friday! Is anyone braving the crowds today, hoping to save a few dollars?
I certainly won’t be. The only Black Friday deals I care about are online.
Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving yesterday? I hope so!
Anyway, today I’ll be sharing an assortment of things that I’ve been meaning to get to. I have some photos of Swirl to make things interesting. Enjoy!
Remaking Photography Tag
Viola nominated me for this tag a few weeks ago, and I’m just now getting around to completing it. Thanks so much for nominating me Viola, and I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get this up!
– Link the creator (Hailey)
– Tag 1-10 people!
– Use the Remaking Photography! – Tag photo. (I didn’t see the tag photo…)
– Choose only ONE picture from the photoshoot to recreate
– Keep the chain going!
– And most importantly have FUN!
Here is Viola’s photo that I chose to recreate…
And here’s how the recreation turned out! I tried to make the flowers and pumpkin match up a bit, and I also put Swirl in a similar position to her doll. I think it turned out pretty good for what it is.
I wasn’t entirely sure how many photos to include, but I tried to do some that would be fun for people to recreate.
I’m not entirely sure who to tag, since pretty much every toy blogger I know has been tagged. So I’ll just extend this tag to anyone who’d like to participate!
Thanksgiving was yesterday! I hope everyone had a great holiday yesterday…I know I did! The bears did too.
Guys…this post is our 797th! I probably won’t do anything to celebrate 800, but honestly, I’m shocked that I’ve stuck with this for 800 posts. My ultimate goal as of now is 1000, but it seems I might surpass that! That would certainly be awesome in my opinion!
You guys may have guessed…I’m doing blogmas this year! But, I’m not doing 31 days like last year, or even 25 days. Despite the fact that I want to haha.
Instead, I’m going to be doing 12 posts here and 12 posts on my other blog. Hopefully, I can have a post go up every other day…even numbered days will be on here. If you’re interested in collaborating/guest posting on here, don’t hesitate to contact me on my contact page! I have a limited amount of open posting days though, now that I’m only posting 12 times before Christmas. So if you’d like to collaborate, don’t wait to contact me!
This year, you can expect similar posts to what I’ve done in the past. I plan to have the virtual Christmas Card Swap up on December 2nd, and I’ll be accepting submissions until December 24th. Also, you can expect to see a newsletter, a craft, a Small-Fry Photoshoot, and hopefully an episode of Skipping Stones. But that’s not all! Tune in during the month of December for more!
Naughty and Nice S2 Announcement
Last year I teased doing another season of Naughty and Nice. Well…I don’t think that will end up happening. I wanted to, but the concept of it seemed a bit cliche and I didn’t want to drag it out. Plus, this year I am way too busy for a photo series at Christmas. And also, I’m not entirely sure that Naughty and Nice was all that well received last year and I just put so much work into that…yeah, I don’t exactly what to do that again.
Yes…I know the proposal was last Thanksgiving. But I simply haven’t had time to put together a proper series of posts for the wedding! Hopefully, I can whip something up for January or February.
Next Photo Series?
So, my idea is that I’ll probably start up a new photo series in 2023, but I haven’t decided which one to do. So I was thinking…what if I prepared a pilot episode for a few and share them all, and let y’all vote which one comes first? What do you guys think of that? I’d probably have about 4 for y’all to choose from.
Anyway, there are some various announcements! Make sure to share your opinions in the comments about what I should do about our next photo series and let me know what you’re most excited about for blogmas! Don’t forget to reach out if you’d like to collaborate!
