Welcome to another random post, my friends!
Before I begin this post, I have an announcement – my friend Bekah has started a blog! Click right >> HERE << to check it out. 😀
Now let’s get started, shall we?
Random Topic #1: Recent Artwork
YAY FOR ART! I’ve been drawing a bible verse/song lyric every Sunday in church, and I’ve also done a few more drawings in my sketchbook. 🙂
Now for a few drawings!
A rather odd-looking cat.
Guys, this wolf took me F O R E V E R to draw. I worked on it for about 4 days, and it’s still not perfect. *groans* I followed this tutorial, in case you were wondering. 🙂
A rough sketch of a cute little tree frog.
This is something I drew in the car when I was bored. It’s kinda cool! I love how bright and vibrant my Prismacolors are.
Lastly, I have some envelope art! This is a record player with a rather poorly blurred address written on it. 😛
Which of my drawings is your favorite? 😀
Random Topic #2: My Blogging Notebook
Last week, Charis posted about creating a blogging notebook and I got inspired to make one of my own. I’ve been working on it for a few days now and I decided to share some pictures of what I’ve done so far. 🙂
Here’s my cover! I decorated it with Sharpies and some washi tape.
I decided to put one of my favorite quotes on the first page as some inspiration. 🙂
Here’s some info about my blog – fonts, color codes, sites I use, etc. I made a little washi tape “door” to cover my login info. 😉
Here’s a list of some of my future goals for this blog.
A list of post ideas (covered up, because I can’t have them revealed ahead of time.) 😛
Here’s my attempt at an artistic “August” page.
My goals and accomplishments for August are listed here. This is incomplete because August isn’t over yet. 😉
My stats for August. Again, it will be completed at the end of the month.
Here’s my most recent page! It’s a (currently blank) calendar for August that I’ll fill in once I complete my schedule. 🙂
That’s as much as I’ve done so far! Do you have a blogging notebook? What do you think of mine?

Random Topic #4: Light Painting
A little while ago I did some more light painting with my siblings! Some you may remember when I talked about light painting in this post. It’s so much fun to do! This time was interesting though – I had my camera on a tripod, we would turn all the lights out, my siblings would create shapes with their flashlights, and then they would all rush to see the finished picture before I had a chance to turn the light back on. THREE CHILDREN WHO COULDN’T SEE WHERE THEY WERE GOING WERE CHARGING AT MY PRECIOUS CAMERA. *hyperventilates* Thankfully my camera (and myself) survived the experience. XD
Here are some of the pictures we made:
Isn’t that so neat? 😀 I love light painting!
Random Topic #5: The Smallones
Heh heh heh. *hides as everyone throws rotten tomatoes*
I haven’t posted The Smallones in several months. I REALLY NEED TO POST MORE! AHHH! But are you guys even still interested in reading it?
Please vote and let me know what you think in the comments!
Random Topic #6: A Very Important Announcement
Okay. *takes a really deep breath* Guys, I need to tell you something important.
“Clara” is a pseudonym. It’s not my real name. I know I’ve used it since I started blogging, and it’s going to be quite hard for me and for all of you guys to get used to, but I’ve come to the decision that I’m going to start using my real name on my blog.
Are you ready to see what my real name is? Drumroll, please!
*bursts out laughing* *regains composure* Let me know in the comments below if you believed me even for a second. 😉 Clara is my real name — but apparently, I like randomly pranking my readers, so yeah. XD *continues laughing*
Random Topic #7: Introducing an Awesome Blog That Deserves More Followers
I’ve decided to include a topic in my random posts every now and then where I give a shoutout to a blog that deserves more attention. There are just so many amazing bloggers out there that deserve way more recognition than they get!
The blog I’ll be giving a shoutout to today is:
Please check out her blog, follow, like, and comment! Also, please leave links in the comments to some blogs you think deserve a shoutout. 😀
Random Topic #8: Photo Editing?
Would any of you be interested in a post about how I edit my photos? I know a lot of you already know how to use PicMonkey (which is what I use), so I don’t know if anyone would even want to read it. Please let me know if that’s something you’d like to see!
Here’s a sneak peek at what the post will be like if I do it. 😉
Random Topic #9: Another Poem
I decided to share another one of my poems. 🙂 Here goes!
– The Calm After the Storm –
raindrops slowly cease
as the green earth sighs
glad to be at peace
bathes the soaking earth
each blade bowing low
with dripping leaves
the golden glow
What do you think of my poetry?
Random Topic #10: Three Important Holidays
*clears throat* Hear ye, hear ye! Tomorrow, August 18th is Percy Jackson’s birthday! Prepare the blue cookies! *throws confetti*
Also, this Saturday (August 19th) is World Photography Day! *hugs my camera* Go look at some of your favorite photographs, bake a cake, and write a heartfelt speech telling your camera how much you love and appreciate it. Get on with it. *waves you away*
Well, that about covers this post. 😀 Thanks so much for reading, everyone!
