The End


You know that day where practically nothing goes wrong (other than the camera dying), when the weather is great, friends are letting you take pictures of them, and you get to eat as much perogies as you want. Well, that day was yesterday. I finally turned fourteen! (yes, it was my Birthday) And I had so much fun! My lovely sisters woke me up with cards, presents, and Amy even made her "famous" Cinnamon Cakes for Breakfast. I felt so blessed to have so many people as excited as I was, all around me. After Breakfast we left to pick up my best friend Brooke, and we were off to the Bobcaygeon Fall fair! This was are very first year going to the fair, and I must say, it was so awesome. We had all entered things in the competitions, and if you have ever been to a country fair you know how exciting it is to walk into the building and see a first place ribbon on your entry. I am proud to say......

Bethany got first place in "cartoon drawing"
Lily got second place in "handmade card"
Katie got first place in "portrait drawing"
Amy got second place for her "handmade doll"
and I got first place in " Drawing (any subject)", second place in "Portrait drawing", first place in "Pencil Sketch", and second place in "digital photo enhancement"

So yeah, lets just say it was a pretty awesome Birthday. But wait, that's not all. After we finished looking at all the competition entries, we watched a horse show, and the best miniature horse costume competition. It was so great to watch! After the fair, we went to our trailer park and did a photoshoot. I love doing photoshoots! (photos will be posted on my other blog soon) And then, my Grandma made perogies (my absolute favourite meal ever!!). How awesome is that!? Anyway....after having said all that, I just truly realize how blessed I am to have such amazing family and friends. Who willingly accept my invitations to let me take photos of them.

                                                    isn't this sweet?

                                                   Amy's crocheted doll (her own pattern)

                                                                     baby cow

                                             Katie's Self Portrait (she's only 8 by the way)

                                                                    Bethany's Cartoon

                                                                 my Dog drawing

                                                               my Portrait Drawing

                                                              my digital enhancement entry

                                                         miniature horse costume competition
                                                                (ketchup and a hot dog)

                                                       Dorothy and the Scarecrow

                                                               The whole wizard of Oz gang
                                                             even Todo! (they won of course)


Sorry for the terrible photo quality, my Dad actually just ordered a DSLR yesterday so this is just temporary. I hope you enjoyed reading this post!

Water-Colour Chart

I have come to you now with a real post. I know, it's been a while, and I'm sorry. But please forgive me, and accept this post as a peace offering. Anyways.....A while back I made this Water-colour Chart, and I thought I'd share it with you (and how I made it).

 Use a ruler and pencil to draw out a chart like this.

                     Start by painting on the yellow. Adding more water as you go, to make it lighter

                                             Continue doing the same with all of the colours

           If you want, you can go over the pencil lines with a sharpie once you have completed painting.
                                                                    The End.

I hope yours turns out better than mine!


PS: I could really use some guest posters if anyone is interested.

What I Wore

Well I stumbled apon some awesome deals at JOE fresh the other day. Would you believe me if I told you that these shorts and this shirt were both only $4.49 each. It's true! You people in the States are really missing out. My glasses are....yes, prescription. I got them from Zenni optical for something like 20 dollars. Another great deal! I got my purse from my sewing machine, fabricland, and my imagination. Yup! I made it.
That's all for now,

Summer Beauty.


Fall Fashion // Old Navy

Dearest Readers,
For most of you, it's probably the first day of school today. For me it's not. I still have a few more days to go. I'm homeschooled (for all of you who didn't know), so we get to procrastinate longer. I still can't believe it's all over though. June, July, August are just in the past now. I must admit however, I am looking forword to jackets and long pants. I've been checking on the Old Navy website for some new clothing items. And I finally have for you.....*drum roll*
Emma-lee's Fall Fashion picks
