I wanted to do it again and I was excited when Michael’s asked me to come up with a project for their blog The Glue String. The full step-by-step post is featured today here.

We set out today to hand out the canvases….venturing to the cancer center, the hospital, the fire station, restaurants, bus stops etc. I’ll share the video one day soon when I have a chance to edit.

I love doing this each year…..not only is it a chance to spread kindness, it’s also a chance for Boo to learn to interact with people she doesn’t know and work on her shyness.

And we can share quotes we love for others to hopefully be inspired by:

 

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” ― Aesop

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. ― Aesop #quote

All the quotes in one place:

Note: These icons have been updated. I didn’t realize that Twitter had recently rebranded to the bird instead of the lowercase “t” so these icons reflect their new guidelines. -Ashley

Ashley had the great idea that I should offer some fun and colorful social media icons for use on your blogs or websites. So, I made a Scribble Set and a Sketchy Set in bright, happy colors.

Photography Field Guide Download

Let’s face it—when learning photography, it is hard to remember what all the photography terms mean and do!

Today I thought I would share a simple little photography guide that you can download and print for your camera bag or add to your phone images to access anywhere. Hopefully it will help those of your trying to learn to use manual learn a little faster AND those of you who want better photos understand aperture, shutter speed, and ISO a little better!
