// through time //

some of you may have noticed how slow its been around these parts.

{or maybe you haven't}

the reason for this unplanned hiatus was due to a summer project;

it took over my summer evenings completely in the month of august.

every spare moment was spent cramming to finish it by the end of summer.

what is this mysterious project?

an online girls magazine.

in the small months of the year (read: march)

i decided i needed a project i could work on throughout the summer.

something i could look back on with satisfaction and excitement:

i had accomplished something big.

in my eyes, at least.

that "something big" ended up being a magazine.

and let me tell you, it took all summer. 

but i'm happy with it; and i learned so much.

behold, the first issue of my magazine:

i have no idea when the next issue will be - if there even will be a next issue.

but for now, i have this to show for my summer's work.

and of that

i am proud.

  1. Wow, it is definitely something to be proud of. You did a fantastic job. I think it will bless many girls and inspire them to grow in Christ and their own creativity. Lots to think on, try, and apply! Even though it is a ton of work - you should definitely carve out time for another issue. :-)
