Hello friends! Can you believe Camp Happy Heart is almost over? I can’t…but I’m glad! I need a break… Anyway, I was planning to make this post a few weeks ago but I kept putting it off. This morning, I realized I can’t wait any longer! So here it is…though it is a little rushed. I hope you enjoy nonetheless. “Excuse me, Counselor Peri,” Oswald says in a small voice. “I painted this. Can I get my ‘creative’ badge now?” Counselor Peri admires the painting. “Yes, of course!

Roughin’ It ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Chip

Hello friends! I’m Chip, and I’m going to be telling you all about my overnight in the tent. I was so excited for a night of camping! Now, I know a lot of you are probably thinking, ‘hasn’t Chip been at camp all summer?’ Well, I don’t consider that camping. Sleeping on a mattress? Air conditioning? Nah, those cabins are just a really cheap hotel. This, is camping. As you can see, the only things I have in the tent are a sleeping bag and a pillow. I debated on whether to use the pillow because it’s too comfortable, but … Continue reading Roughin’ It ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Chip

DIY Dream Catchers

Hello friends! I’m Stella, and I’m going to be showing you how to make dream catchers today. You will need a round object (I used a key ring), embroidery floss, and beads. Begin by cutting a length of floss to wrap around your ring. Secure it to the ring. I did this by putting it inside the key ring and also tying it to it. Then you can add some beads to finish it off! There’s a lot of other touches you can add to this, but I was running out of time. I think it turned out really cute, … Continue reading DIY Dream Catchers

CHH Photo Contest

Hello friends! I was trying to think of a post for today, and Roshni suggested a contest! I realized that I hadn’t done a contest this year for camp, so I thought that it would be a good idea to do a photo contest! This is a very simple and easy contest, all you have to do is send in a photo that represents summer! I’d prefer if it involved stuffies in some way, but if it doesn’t, that’s fine too! Just as long as you’d be comfortable with me sharing your photo for readers to vote on. (Depending on … Continue reading CHH Photo Contest

It’s Azura, and in today’s post, I’m going to be doodling based on prompts that my friend Cherie gives me! I’m really excited…I can’t wait to see what I draw today! Your first prompt is…potato. Hm…that one’s a little tough…but I have an idea. Ta-da! A couch potato! Or should I say…a couch made from potatoes. Cute no? Okay, maybe it’s a little corny. But I promise my next drawings will be more normal. Your next prompt is makeup. I think that’ll be pretty … Continue reading Doodling with Azura || Collab
