Welcome to 2018 – Little update and Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year 14.jpg

A new year has officially arrived! I am so excited for a fresh, new slate with so much to be seen as God unfolds His faithfulness and perfect plan for the year.

God is so good, which should never be mistaken to think that 2018 will be full of idealistic good times and happiness, but it does mean that God has a perfect plan for us, to refine His people, and to one day return to judge the world and rule us perfectly in glory, wiping away the stain of sin and tears for those who have followed Him in this life.

 

A Small Update of Sorts:

I love blogging at Smile and Craft AG, and I hope you love reading and are encouraged by it. Last semester I had some trouble keeping up on posting, and this year will probably be even busier for me, as I plan to get a job on top of school.

That being said, I’m not completely sure what the coming year/semester will look like with posting consistency, so I just wanted to give a little heads-up about that. Hopefully I’ll still be able to post relatively often, but I’ll have to wait and see! πŸ™‚

 

So anyways, Happy New Year!!

So this post isn’t picture-less, here’s a dramatically lighted picture of my cat, Callie, sitting at the piano (with the beautiful song, Blessings, on the stand). (Edited in Photoshop)

What are you looking forward to for 2018? What would you like to see on Smile and Craft AG this year?

Updates!

Hello!

I was planning to post a photostory but wasn’t able to finish it tonight (and I have to get up at 4AM. AAAAH!)

I’ll be going on a couple of trips (one of which is my youth group camp!) and wanted to inform you all of my absense πŸ˜‰ . I’m planning/hoping to post the photostory in between the two trips, but if not I may be gone a couple of weeks.

On the second trip I plan to bring a doll and get pictures! I’m thinking Grace, but who do you think I should bring?

Sooo, I guess that’s it!

Here’s a picture of Clifford to end this post XD :

Redesigning Plans

HELLO!

One of my summer goals is to re-design my blog. I feel like the design isn’t quite… up to date, perhaps?

I want to make it cleaner and more professional (and pretty!! πŸ˜‰ )

I’ve made a color palette, inspired by Megan and Clara‘s DIY Design, and I thought I’d share…

It’s basically like my current one, but it’s fun to put it in a palette. What do you think?

 

So you may see some changes around here for a while, and I would love to hear your feedback and ideas!

 

What are your thoughts on Smile and Craft AG being redesigned? What do you like and/or dislike about my current design? Do you have any suggestions for the new design?

 

Also, is anyone doing July Nano and in need of/have room for a cabin member? I’ll be gone for some of July, so might not be able to be super active, but would like to join a cabin for Nano, if I can find a good one, and would love to be with blogger friends! πŸ™‚

Hmm, maybe I’ll even make a new sign-off!

P.S. Anyone know where I can find a cute yellow watercolor (or something like that) daisy graphic for free?
