This is the first post in a mini-series about my desk! The next post will be on Monday 🙂 Today, I’m going to be giving you all a tour of my desk! This was requested when I asked for post ideas- if you have any more, please let me know on this post.

An overview of my desk

Note: the table to the left (which you can just barely see in the picture, oops!) is part of my desk too, but it doesn’t have anything on it and it’s really just a place to spread out when doing homework or taking notes.

Closer shot of my desk 🙂

img_3735

This is the wall above my whiteboard- I generally keep encouraging quotes, calendars, and tools up here. (I also just realized that I still have my January calendar up- I cropped some of it out of the photo but it’s up there. oops!

img_3736

My current Verso de Memoria (Memory Verse) for Spanish class: Proverbios 3:1-8 (Proverbs)

img_3737

An adorable bible verse that a lady in our church made my mom- you bet I snatched it right up! (Actually my mom gave it to me, don’t worry)

img_3738

I honestly don’t need this anymore, but it’s a chart to remember the regular verb conjugations in Spanish. I made it toward the beginning of the school year when I was having a lot of trouble with them..

img_3739

Wow this is… not so cute? I made this a while ago, maybe I’ll make a new one to put up there.

img_3740

Now we’re onto the whiteboard! I copied this art (can you tell I’m not an artist at all?) from something I found that I liked. Great verse, but I didn’t do it very well 😦

img_3742

I’m trying to earn ~300 dollars for a Christian camp I want to go to this summer, and this is a super simple tracker I made for it 🙂

img_3743

I’m tracking the amount of practice time for piano in February, so I just printed out a cute calendar 🙂

img_3744

My handy dandy expo markers (which are totally crooked, oops)

img_3746

My little… storage tray? I normally keep books on it. Right now I have a notepad, birthday card (actually my birthday was not recent, I have no idea why that’s there…) The Scarlet Pimpernel, and a math book I got from the library.

img_3747-1

My planner!

img_3748-1

An ugly shot of my computer. Pretty self-explanatory, I guess.

img_3749-1

My random little storage thingys. The pencil pouch holds my brush pens, pens, pencils, and highlighters.

img_3750

The cute but falling apart folder holder my brothers made me. It holds all my school folders and stuff, haha.

img_3752

My random box of papers + craft supplies… it’s a mess but organized if that makes sense? I’ve had the box/drawer since age 5 which explains the stickers on the front… lol.

img_3753

This is the top drawer of that cube thingy. I put my bigger binders + books I’m reading for school in here.

img_3754

Currently reading for school:

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis (actually we just finished this, on to The Silver Chair)

The History of the Kings of Britian by Geoffrey

Richard lll by Shakespeare (we just finished this one too, Ephesians from the Bible next)

img_3756

And this horribly blurry picture of my dictionary 🙂

img_3757

My Spanish and Science binders

img_3758

Below the drawer in the cube is where I put my textbooks/manuals.

img_3783

And ending with this awful self-timer picture of me writing in my planner 🙂

 

 

Thanks for reading 🙂 Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day! Did you all read the story behind it in school? We did, every single class and then later at dinner, hahaha.

I’m back…. With Doll Target!!!!

Hey guys! I just realized… it’s been two weeks since I posted! One of those weeks was an adjustment to my online math class starting, and Y’ALL THE HOMEWORK XD It’s A LOT. And the other week was spent sitting in a dark, hot, house. (Except 2 of the days…. thanks to my dad’s coworker for inviting us over when her power came on.) I live in FL and we were hit by Irma. The storm wasn’t bad, but the power outage was. Like a month ago, a friend and I created a doll target. (Samantha– It was her idea, and it was so cool- So I didn’t copy you. I promise!!!! It was the weekend you posted your doll Target- LOL!)

I took the pictures a while ago, and I do have a video that everyone said was awesome…. but I hate the sound of my voice in videos. XD Anyone else feel the same way? So… if you can convince i will post it. Here goes!!!!

wp_20170812_13_54_40_pro.jpg

Sorry for the bad lighting. We set it up in a room that has really bad lighting, so It wasn’t awesome!

WP_20170812_14_00_07_Pro

We made this doll target sign with a sharpie and paper. You could print one out or use one from a target ad.

YAY 50% OFF!!!

Here is the (tiny) electronics center. We made two desktop computers.Yes that is a tissues box.

WP_20170812_14_00_26_Pro

This is the main electronics table. The table is my brother’s nabi box. The drawers organizing the books and folders are from the blue organization table. I bought it at the dollar store and use it in all my doll rooms- it’s awesome!! The sticky notes and notepads are cut from full size sticky notes and notepads. I made most of the folders, books, and notebooks, but some are from the American Girl Doll School Kit. A tip for making doll books use home school/scholastic book catalogs! Glue the pictures of books to a piece of paper wrapped around craft foam.

WP_20170812_14_00_30_Pro

This table is where I put tshirts, posters, and pictures. Like the printing area?

WP_20170812_14_00_34_Pro

WP_20170812_14_10_48_Pro

And picks up her new desktop computer.

WP_20170812_14_12_18_Pro

Now she will pay.

WP_20170812_14_13_27_Pro

Hey guys! So this is my school supply haul video.WP_20170812_14_13_49_Pro

So the first thing I got is… a computer! As you can see, it came with a penguin desktop. This computer I will have to share with the other girls. I know Nora will blog on it often!!! (She would be blogging, but she’s been sick. Also, thanks Stace for taking this awful awesome photos!!!

Stacey: HEYYYY!!!!

 

Lane: Oh hi Stace….. Yeah I’m blogging on my new computer.WP_20170812_14_14_06_Pro

This is such a cute file organizer. I will use it for all the books I write.WP_20170812_14_14_43_Pro

I picked out 1 notebook and 4 folders.WP_20170812_14_14_56_Pro

This shirt is actually a gift for Ava when she runs a half marathon. ( I  (Christina) had some awesome pictures of Ava running, and a mini stopmotion (my first) but they got deleted. And i worked for like 4 hourss!!!!!! Don’t even get me started….)WP_20170812_14_15_08_Pro

Do you like my doll Target? Sorry for my occasional rants and tears, and for the awful photos. But thats what bloggers are made of, right? Rants, Tears, and Awful Photagraphy?

 

Anyway… (I really need to make a signoff)

Bye!!!!!!

Lane’s Room

Hey everybody! It’s Lane! Mom sometimes makes us a temporary room because she doesn’t have much space. She stores all the pieces in large bins. Today I got to make my own room. Actually, Sunday. I took all the photos on my tablet except that have me in it! 

Look closely, the captions are small!

WP_20170723_14_59_37_Pro
Welcome to my room! Mom took this photo of me in my room.
WP_20170723_14_59_56_Pro
Here’s what my bed normally looks like. I always make it, but I generally have a book and/or my tablet on there.
WP_20170723_15_00_03_Pro
These are my pillows.
WP_20170723_15_00_23_Pro
For the pink, blue, and polka dot blue large pillows, I used a packing poof and a baby washcloth.
WP_20170723_15_00_32_Pro
Then I wrap the cloth around the packing poof.
WP_20170723_15_00_41_Pro
For the small throw, I decorated a piece of fabric.
WP_20170723_15_00_46_Pro
Then, I stuffed it with more fabric scraps and duct taped it together. (One of my first crafts.)
WP_20170723_15_01_08_Pro
The red pillow is a red sandbag.
WP_20170723_15_01_20_Pro
The posters I made a while ago.
WP_20170723_15_01_31_Pro
The tablet is a non working iphone 3, and the book is from american girl school.
WP_20170723_15_01_41_Pro
I love lounging on my bed watching a movie!
WP_20170723_15_01_50_Pro
And gazing at the cover of reading my new book.

WP_20170723_15_02_02_Pro
This is my storage unit
WP_20170723_15_02_20_Pro
On the top shelf, I used an iphone box to make a box for books and notebooks.
WP_20170723_15_02_32_Pro
The saucer is a mini gift box lid.

WP_20170723_15_02_42_Pro

WP_20170723_15_02_58_Pro
This is a mini hairbrush and a suitcase I made.
WP_20170723_15_03_17_Pro
Lane keeps her robe there as well.
WP_20170723_15_03_32_Pro
(Sorry for bad image). Some clothes are also kept on the storage unit.
WP_20170723_15_03_43_Pro
On the desk, Lane will sometimes dump her purse or hair stuff.
WP_20170723_15_04_09_Pro
Bye, Y’all! (Lane is taken with southern drawl- hey I rhymed!)
WP_20170723_15_05_00_Pro
A peek from the air.
WP_20170723_15_05_04_Pro
My light comes from a window right above the space.
WP_20170723_15_05_18_Pro
The posters are hung on the wall, aka the armiore.

Thanks for reading! Sorry, I have not been posting, I was on a trip and have been doing a lot!
