Random Post #7

 salutations

What’s up, guys?

I’m currently working on The Smallones, and Episode 11 should be up soon. Until that’s finished, I decided to write a random post for you all. Enjoy! 😀

Random Topic #1: Fiver

Some friends of ours visited the other day, and they brought along their puppy, Fiver. He’s a German Wirehaired Pointer, and oh my goodness, he is ADORABLE. See for yourself:

He’s so snuffly and bouncy. XD

AHH JUST LOOK AT THAT FACE!!

He looks like he’s smiling! I love when dogs do that. 😛

Random Topic #2: Pixar In a Box

Have any of you ever heard of Khan Academy? It’s a free online tool with hundreds of video tutorials for math, science, history, and much, much more. It’s super helpful and I use it all the time in school! Khan Academy recently partnered with Pixar (yes, THE Pixar) and created a new video series called “Pixar In a Box.” They cover animation, design, and the creation of stories/characters. You get to do some simple animation as well. My dream is to be a Pixar animator one day, so I’ve absolutely loved this series so far. I’ve found it to be very helpful for my writing, as well! If you’d like to check it out, click the link below:

Random Topic #3: Some Posts I’ve Enjoyed Lately

Donut Making – A Barefoot Gal

Mythical Beasts – Drawn to Writing

Red – Blooming Photography

Amateur Art Update – Steeplechase

WordCrafters 2 Finale – A Farm Girl’s Life

Random Topic #4: Bible Verses

I enjoy designing bible verses on PicMonkey. It’s so much fun and quite relaxing! Here are some verses I’ve designed recently in a slideshow format. Most of the background images are from Unsplash, which is a free photo site. 😀

Random Topic #5: Nightfall

You may or may not have seen that Shannon Messenger, author of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, released the cover of her next book! Nightfall is coming out this autumn and I can’t wait. In case your eyeballs have not yet been blessed by this beautiful cover, please see below:

IT’S SO PURTY. Would you guys be interested if I gave away a copy of Nightfall when it comes out? Hypothetically speaking, of course. 😛

Random Topic #6: A Secret Page

I decided to create a secret page on my blog just for fun. 😀 If you’d like find it, then look for a tiny picture of a cat (Ember) that is hidden somewhere on this blog. Click on the cat to be transported to my secret page. Have fun looking! 😉

Random Topic #7: Stop Motions

I’ve been a bit obsessed with creating stop motions lately. They’re extremely tedious and time-consuming, but so fun and rewarding at the same time! 😀 I don’t currently own any fancy video editing software, so I’ve been using Giphy to create my stop motions in GIF form. Here’s one I made a few weeks ago:

Ta-da! 😀 What do you think? (The parfait was quite delicious, in case you were wondering.)

      Yes, it does! They talk a lot about creating a good charachter and making your audience care about them, which is really helpful. 😀

  6. Neat post, Clara! Fiver is ADORABLE! XD I used to Khan Academy for math, but I don’t anymore for various reasons. 😉 But anyway, the Pixar animation sounds so neat! Do they have graphic design things, or is it just for animation and movie-type things? And those verses are beautiful! I’m gonna pin them… 🙂 As for Keeper, I’m pretty excited for the next book, but to be quite honest, I’m kinda getting tired of the series. GASP Did those words just escape my mouth, er, fingers? ( XD ) Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the cover, but I’m definitely excited for the next book! 😀 And last but not least, I loved the stopmotion! 😀
    Phew! – that was one long comment! XD

    1. Thank you, Grace!
      It’s mostly just animation. 🙂
      Thanks for pinning my verses! 😀
      GASP HOW COULD YOU? XD Just kidding…. I know what you mean. 😉 I do think everyone’s excitement levels will rise as the release date draws closer, though. 😀
      I’m glad you liked the stopmotion! Thanks for commenting, Grace!
