Hello today! As you guys know (at least those who have been keeping up with me), I have always been known as 'A Lotta Girl, A Lotta Style.' Well, thinking about it, I don't really have that much style, but I do have a lot of creativity! Why not wrap the contents of my blog around my everyday mind? I feel that would be in the best interest for all of us. I kind of feel like I have been hiding myself from you guys with my former website persona. I'm not a fashionista (HOWEVER, I adore clothes in the worst way.) I don't know why I would portray myself to be anything but myself: artsy, unique, crafty, nerdish, and so many other traits. So here is my website makeover: I'm going to transform my blog to portray myself how I want to be shown! I hope you guys enjoy the change, and I hope you get an insight on who I really am. For starters, I am going to add the beautiful photos I took of my mother's garden the other day.
For the photo effects, I have used the filters on Instagram, Path, and Pixlr-O-Matic and sometimes even in unison. For the bright coral roses, I used the filter Peter on Pixlr-O-Matic. I felt that it complimented the color of the flowers quite well. My mother has a beautiful garden, and I am just so proud of her for creating a wonderful mixture of color and flower.
The sky was so heavenly that day! I don't understand why people feel disdain toward cloudy days. You can just sit back and watch them as they slowly pass by, and you may even see a cat or a butterfly!
I gave her this beautiful Mother's Day card because she loves art (she's an artist too) and flowers. I decorated the front of the card slip, which was a glorious hot-pinkish coral color. We both love bright colors.
And this little gem is a photo of the past three generations of women from my mother's side of the family: My grandmother Jeanette, my mother Jeanette, and me! Fun fact: My grandfather wanted my name to be Jeanette too! Haha, how funny would that have been.
How was your Mother's Day? What did you give to your mother that was very special to the both of you?
