#TASHToSchool2017: 3 Cute Notebook Designs

More notebooks! Simply had too many that I needed to make another post just devoted to notebooks! I do hope that you guys like the last one. If anything looked different, that’s because I was typing on my tablet, and probably will be for a little longer. Maybe a week. Enough talk. I like to keep my introductions short.

2. Song Lyric Notebook

You will need a notebook, some lace or other material that is similar, cardstock paper and some sort of label.

Step One. Cover the notebook with your cardstock paper and use the material chosen above to section it off. Believe it or not, I used a drawer liner, and it worked just fine.

Step Two. Write the song lyrics in the gaps. You can write the lyrics to just one song, songs by one artist or collage a bunch of songs that you like or lyrics that you like.

3. Sunset Quote Notebook
You will need paint inthe colors of through sunset and ocean and a notebook.

Step One. Paintthe notebook in an ombre over the top two thirds. Once that is dry, paint the ‘ocean’ with blue. Wait for it to dry, then paint on the wave crests in white.

Step Two. Once the entire notebook is 100 percent dry, write on some smart aleck quite in black Sharpe and draw some details to enhance. Because I was painting my sketchbook I wrote ‘Art does not have match your sofa’, a Suzy Toronto quote. Seal with anything you have to seal it with to finish.

Thanks for reading my blog. As usual, you can show your support by following my blog and liking my posts. I hope you enjoyed these notebooks, and also my last set, DIY Tumblr Notebooks 2017.  Hopefully next week I’ll have a full BTS post up, and some more summery stuffs well, because the summer aint over yet. Post soon,

Anxiety can really get in the way, more often than not. It gets in the way at school, mostly. I suffer from it. A lot of people do. These are some tips that are a blend of what works for me and what has been recommended by the lovely jessiepaege on YouTube. I really do hope these tips help, so why don’t we get started.
 
 
Tip #1: Find Your Support Group
Everybody needs a life support group. This group should be people you can talk to and feel comfortable talking to about whatever is bothering you.
Tip #2: Don’t Attach Food to Emotion
If you attach food to emotion, it changes your eating habits for the worse. You can either overeat or undereat, and neither are good for you. You need to eat normally.
Tip #3: Music
Make a playlist to listen to when things become to much. Here are some of the songs I use:
Songs That Make Me Want To Dance
Diamond On A Landmine- Billy Talent
Louder Than The DJ- Billy Talent
I Want Out- Young Guns
Dracula- Bea Miller
Empowering Songs
Like That- Bea Miller
Wild Things- Alessia Cara
Young Blood- Bea Miller
Sad Songs
Nothing To Lose- Billy Talent
When We Were Young- Adele
Cure For The Enemy- Billy Talent
Too Late To Say Goodbye- Cage The Elephant
Tip #4: Distractions
Have something to take your mind off of whatever is bugging you. If they aren’t banned, fidget spinners work great. If you don’t have a spinner, or can’t bring one, wear a hairtie on your wrist and mess around with it. It takes your mind off of what is bugging you.
Tip #5: Journal
Keep a journal to just write down whatever is bugging you so that you can talk about whatever is bugging you later. It works, trust me.
Follow my blog if you don’t want to miss anymore of #TASHToSchool2017 and think that is should do more posts like this. It really supports me, so it is appreciated. I hope that this helps some of you, and that you enjoy reading some of my other posts. Talk soon!

Quick Craft: DIY Summer Polariod Bea Miller Photo Chain

TWO MORE WEEKS OF SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Was that a little much? Recently I’ve started listening to Bea Miller, and have gotten hooked on her music. Like seriously, it’s really good. My favorite Bea Miller songs are Dracula, Young Blood and Open Your Eyes. While a lot of her music is from 2014, it is really good and i like the messages that Young Blood and Fire N Gold send out. So i’d google these.

In honor of the summer, i wanted to do something with Tumblr photos and thanks to LaurDIY’s Celeb Trends video which cued me to search ‘celeb diys’ on YouTube and The Haute Pink Diary who made the Bea Miller Inspired DIYs video. I wanted to do something with polaroids just because and then i realized that they played a main part in the Fire N Gold music video, so i thought that i’d do something like this. Why don’t i stop talking and let’s start the DIY!

You will need Tumblr summer photos (found online), a polaroid template (also online), tape and black yarn/string.

Step One. Gather your photos. A simple google search can help with that. I googled ‘tumblr summer photos’ and ‘tumblr summer nights’. i also found my polaroid template online and put it with the photos in a Word document. Print the photos and cut them out.

Step Two. Bea Miller song lyrics. I just looked these up on AZ Lyrics and wrote ones that i thought fit with my polaroids. If you know what a polaroid looks like, then you know that the bottom part is bigger than the other three sides. That’s where the lyrics should be written. Cut a long piece of your black thread or yarn that covers the length of the wall you want to hang this up on. Tape your photos the the string/yarn and hang. If you have clothespins, you can also put them up like that, but i didn’t. It kind of takes the Tumblr away from it, but oh well. Taping it up is hard. Try not to let go. It fell on me like 5 times, soooo…..

Thank you guys for reading my blog! Let me know if you guys want me to do more artist/band themed DIYs. I really hope that you guys like Bea  Miller as well.
