Hey there! I’m Clara, the girl behind this blog. If you’d like to learn more about me and my blog, then you can read on below. 🙂
Clara & Co. was founded in 2014 as an outlet for me to share my various crafts and DIYs with the blogging community. Then, in the spring of 2016, I bought a dSLR camera, the Nikon D3000, and my love for photography instantly blossomed. Today, my blog has become primarily a place for me to share my various attempts at photography and my creative adventures with my readers. I also occasionally share my writing (most often in the form of a short story) and my various sketches and art. If you’d like to read more of my posts, then you can click the follow button on my sidebar to be notified whenever I make a new post. 🙂
My name is Clara, and I’m an ambitious high schooler with a passion for creativity. I love photography, writing, and music, along with pretty much every other art form. I’m extremely scatterbrained and random, I’m homeschooled, and I have 5 siblings. I’m live on 50 acres in the middle of nowhere on a small farm with goats, rabbits, a dog, and quite a few cats (8, to be exact). I’m a Christian, a dreamer, a deep thinker, and an adventurer. I smile often and I love to laugh.
My camera is a Nikon D3000 and I love to capture the beautiful world around me through its lens. All of the photography on this blog is my own work unless otherwise noted.
I love to write stories almost as much as I love to read them. I’m currently in the process of writing 2 different novels, and I also write the occasional short story. I’ve participated in several writing camps/challenges, and I’ve won a few awards for my writing. If you’d like, you can see some of my more recent work right HERE.
I play the fiddle, mostly bluegrass, though classical is beautiful too. I’ve been playing since I was 3 and I think that it’s the most beautiful instrument. My little sister and I sing together and my dad plays guitar. We have so much fun creating music together.
One of my favorite pastimes is exploring the many acres of woods on our farm and discovering new places. You can see more pictures of our woods here. 🙂
My dog, Maude, is a 6-year-old lab and my favorite fluffball. She often comes along and “helps” me when I’m exploring.
I love to wear bright colors and interesting t-shirts. If we ever met in person, I’d probably be wearing faded jeans, a Harry Potter shirt, and tennis shoes. My hair is almost always in braids or space buns.
We own quite a few cats, and I love how soft and playful they are! Our most recent addition, a sweet little cat named Ember, was voted my “blog mascot” by my blog readers. You can learn about her (along with another kitty named Ninja) right HERE.
I love listening to music of all types. NEEDTOBREATHE, Sleepy Man, David Crowder, and Rend Collective are just a few of my favorite artists.
My dad’s job requires him to travel quite often, and he often takes my sister and I along with him. I absolutely love it! Going on long road trips and discovering amazing new places is my ideal kind of adventure. 😀
Now that I’ve rambled about myself, I’d love to learn more about you. Comment below with 5 facts about yourself – I’ll reply!
