The Smile Project


I got this idea from someone on Tumblr. Basically take a picture of yourself holding a piece of paper saying what makes you smile. That's it! Easy right? But that's not all; there's more! Besides the picture, tell us why that thing/person makes you smile in a blog post. This will be a link up, so please spread the word. In about three weeks from tomorrow, Thursday Aug. 30th, I will re-post this with the linky. So, get your cameras ready and say cheese!

Hope you will all join me in 3 weeks!

Have a lovely night!

I'm obsessed with Chipotle, scarves and organization. Come join my adventure full of random awesomeness!

That’s a lot of what you’ll see on my blog, as well as some personal random stuff that I like to throw out every once in a while. I started blogging because I needed an outlet to channel my creativity. Blogging has done that for me and so much more! I have met some amazing people that I now call friends. I have a space where I can be as creative as I want to be! And for some reason, people keep reading! Never thought I’d have something to say that people want to read. It’s pretty humbling. Anyways, I hope you stop by! Let me know you came from "Chase All Your Dreams!"

Clearance Sale! Every Must Go!


Everything in my store, Midnight City Creations, must go! Get 50% off your order now until there's nothing left.

Why am I doing this? Well, business has been slow and I've been thinking about re-doing my shop. So I want to get rid of all my jewelry and add different items to my shop, more handmade items (the jewelry I make is semi-handmade and anyone can do it). I feel like re-branding my shop and adding different, handmade items, will help.

So, help me out and buy something! I really want to get rid of these items!

Have a lovely day!

Pinning Week


Linking up to A Night Owl Blog's Pinning Week. 

It's August now. School's starting back up (August 28th, boooo!) and the craft stores have fall and Halloween decorations out already. Due to that, I've had fall and Halloween crafts on my mind for weeks and Pinterest has been fueling my inspiration.

I love autumn; the colors, fragrances, the air, etc. I just love everything about it (minus school of course). This is the time of year where I craft like crazy and I visit the craft store more than I should. It's the time of year where I feel inspired by Halloween (my favorite holiday, btw) and the season around me.

So, here are some craft projects that I plan on making this fall.























Follow me on Pinterest!

Have a lovely day!
xoxo
