Dollies, Clothes, & Craft Tutorials…Oh My!

Dollies Clothes Crafts oh my header

Hello Friends,

It’s been far too long since we’ve spoken. I’m sure some of you have left this blog behind, never to think of it again, and that’s fine. It’s my fault for not bringing you fresh content any longer, but that’s about to change.

Me in Kitty bear hat

I’m happy to announce that I will be doing  regular YouTube channel videos as well as regular blog posts right here on “Macey’s Misadventures.” I’ve really missed it, and the only reason I stopped was because there was a lack of time and inability to devote what little I had of it to this blog. In short, I’m back. :)

I'm back

I just want to introduce the new goodies I’ll be serving up, fresh, for you. I will be regularly updating my blog with the details I feel some of you may desire to read about. I’ll also be posting regular videos on YouTube, ranging from dolly videos, to crafting tutorials, to clothing and beauty hauls. All of this is for your entertainment and enjoyment.

Your feedback will be critically important for the next few weeks, months, and hopefully for years to come! Let me know if you enjoy my videos or if you have any criticism and/or advice on how to improve the quality of your experience.

Thanks so much friends & dolly pals alike!

Hearts & Stars…

Adventurous Friday #1: Cherokee Dam & Beach

Hello Lovely Wonder-things,

Today’s blog post has been published so late, I know. I’m so sorry, but I think you all will enjoy this short and sweet photo/art representation of our little adventure.

We went to the Lake by Cherokee Dam. It is not too far from Jefferson City, TN. Just a little drive.

1} A Fisherman’s shop that was on the way there…

2} The signs pointing us to the beach & lake…

3} We’re here!!

4} Me playing around on the swing set in the park area where all the trees are.

5} Well, we got super hungry walking and acting silly and playing around…so we got Hibachi Chicken!!

We also took lots and lots of photos of squirrels, so I cut a jumping squirrel out of a photo and made a pattern of him. I put a color behind the pattern to soften it. I think it would make a lovely tote bag pattern! <3

BEFORE EDITING (only cropped):

AFTER EDITING {Made into a little pattern}:

Any thoughts on my pattern I created? He sort of looks like a little fox, doesn’t he? :)

Introduction To Macey’s Misadventures

Hello All,

Macey’s Misadventures is about creativity, design, fun, adventure, illustration, writing, and so much more.

I will do my blog posts by a schedule. The not-so-written-in-stone schedule is below:

Monday = Recent Pins:

This means anything that I have pinned lately on a little site called Pinterest, and feel it would be good to share with you all, it will be included in a blog post on Mondays.

Tuesday = Tutorials:

This means the tutorial I have planned to share for the week will be posted on Tuesdays. Tutorials could be anything from the category of graphic design to the category of photography to the category of home improvement projects (maybe? I dunno). We will see where this one takes us. I know, I know. I didn’t post a tutorial today, but it’s my very first day here and I only thought of this schedule a few hours ago…and I got distracted by YouTube.

Wednesday = Sketchbook Entry:

Wednesdays will be all about sketching, and I will attempt to have a fresh sketch in my sketchbook and uploaded to this blog on Wednesdays…I really will try. Actually, I recently bought a new sketchbook and I want the entire sketchbook, once it is finished, to be a comic book. Oh, we shall see if that goal is accomplished or not.

Thursday = Thoughts:

Thursday Thoughts. It has a ring to it, doesn’t it. Thursdays will be all about me. That didn’t sound conceded at all, did it? Anyway, so on good old Thursday you will get a glimpse inside my brain. Scary, no?

Friday = Adventures:

Yes, FINALLY! The most important day of the week for the blog is Friday. Want to know why? It will be about my (mis)adventures. That’s what the blog is all about, isn’t it? Wait, yes, it is. Why did I ask you that?

So, what do I mean by “adventures”? Well, that’s where it gets interesting. I’ll leave it up to your imagination until a Friday adventure arrives in your RSS feed. Don’t forget to subscribe and follow me!

Hearts & Stars,

MaceyLou
