Scarf DIY

Last school year I was the chaplain of my high school girls choir. The girls had a challenge from me to memorize Psalm 146 and whoever said it to me the most weeks out of the year would get a prize. I racked my brain for a long time until finally a week and a half before I needed to give the prize out, I finally knew what I was going to do. My sister had made this scarf DIY for my other sister and I decided to do the same for the choir girls! I used a white scarf from Target and a Marvy Uchida Fabric Marker to make this scarf and the girl who won it absolutely loved it! Here are some pictures from the process. Enjoy!

A Photoshoot

While in Big Bear with some family friends at the beginning of this month, my sister and I decided to throw on some pretty dresses and take pictures right at sunset next to the lake. Here are a couple of my favorites!
