    A Jar of Fireflies: A Summer Short Story

    a-jar-of-fireflies

    Hey guys! I have something a little different for you all today…I’m releasing another short story! This one I wrote in one sitting after being inspired by a picture, and hardly did any editing…some things just happen like that. I love this story. It’s one of the favorites I’ve ever written! Since it’s so short, I’m not going to publish it on Amazon but just post it in my blog post. I hope you all enjoy!

    Hey, guys! I’ve had the chance to sit down and do some art recently, which I’ve really enjoyed. :) I’m not the best artist, but I enjoy watercoloring, and recently I’ve gotten into pencil sketching! So like my last art post, I thought I’d show y’all a peek into my sketchbook. Actually, these types of posts are better known as “where Aria shows her art and points out the numerous flaws”. Enjoy.

Today, I’m showing you how to do a happy birthday card, a thank-you, and a congratulations card – although they could be switched up and changed easily. Let’s get started!

    Hey, you guys! Happy 2019! How was your New Year?

    Originally this was supposed to be my 2019 reading list, but after I scheduled it I had a sinking feeling that it was going to be awfully boring. XD So a few days later I rewrote it. Then it got too long. XD Today I’m going to surmise some books I am planning to read!

    The Share-a-Book-List Trade + Free Bookmark Printable!

    Hey, you guys!

    I’m sure most of you know that I love reading. If you don’t, you know now! There’s nothing like curling up with a good novel, or learning from an author skilled in expository teaching. I read all the time, and I’m blessed to have a best friend who also loves reading. We both like the same types of books as well, but often end up reading different ones.
