BIBPC the Sixth Category 5 – Disguise

Good afternoon!

I’m early with my BIBPC entry this time!Β The category is disguise.

Go Owls!!

Here it is…


I wasn’t sure what I would photograph for this challenge. I couldn’t think of any costumes I had on hand, but when I thought about it today, I realized that I could photograph some mystery books we have. Essentially, a mystery book is about a problem that is disguised, and the character(s) are trying to find out what’s underneath. So I pulled out a copy of a Nancy Drew mystery and a Hardy Boys mystery to star in this entry. πŸ™‚

Have you read Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys? What other books do you like?


Have a blessed day!

BIBPC the Sixth, Category 4 Entry – Furry!


I am here with a last minute BIBPC entry!

The category is furry, and I am on team Owl.

Go Owls!


This photo was taken with my Nikon L840, not my Canon T3i. As you can see, it features my very furry feline with a very furry teddy bear! πŸ™‚ β™₯

For Megan, I also named my photo with the name, team, and category.


How was your Christmas and New Year?


Have a blessed day!

BIBPC the Sixth – Category 3: Tradition


I am here with another entry for BIBPC! This contest has been so much fun so far!

Go Owls!

Category 3 is “tradition.” I wasn’t sure at first what to photograph, because I couldn’t really think of any unique traditions my family/I do for Christmas, but I was able to think of one, and got this photo with the help of some gifts my mom wrapped for friends tonight… and also the cat πŸ˜‰ .


This picture represents a personal tradition I have. It’s simple, yet enjoyable and exciting to me. Every Christmas morning, I like to get up before the sun rises, when the house is dark, and go out to where the tree is. In my family, we typically don’t put the presents under the tree until Christmas Eve night, so when I go out on Christmas morning, I can turn on the tree lights in the dark and sit and enjoy how pretty everything looks, and enjoy the excitement of the morning!

Christmas traditions are so fun, though we must always remember the greatest reason behind all of the trees and lights and presents — Jesus: the greatest gift of all!


What are some of your Christmas traditions?

Have a blessed day, and a merry Christmas!! ❀

BIBPC the Sixth – Category 2: candle, candy cane, card, carols, celebrate, chestnuts, chill

Hello! Here is my entry for Category 2 of BIBPC!

This category is…

candle, candy cane, card, carols, celebrate, chestnuts, chill!


I am on Team Owl! I used all seven words in my photo:


The candles are in the window; theΒ candy canes are to the left of the sheet music; two cards are to the right of the sheet music; the sheet music is a Christmas carol; the cards, candy canes, carol, and festive blanket celebrate the holiday; the sheet music is for “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” (also called “The Christmas Song”); and the blanket on the bench is there to keep off the chill!

Go Owls! It was a lot of fun thinking up this photo! πŸ™‚


Have a blessed day!

It was fun setting up this cozy scene… and then drinking the chai tea afterward! πŸ˜‰


Here’s a bonus picture from my photoshoot of this setup…


Callie decided my tea smelled interesting and photo-bombed the shot to look at it. πŸ˜‰ Can you see her?


Now for the camera update… I got a new camera!! A big thanks to my brother for passing his Canon EOS Rebel T3i down to me! I am really enjoying learning to use it and the manual controls!
