The Great Debate: Canva vs. PicMonkey

Uncategorized

It’s the debate of the century!

Or… something around those lines! A lot of people want to know the differences between the ever-so-popular design programs Canva and PicMonkey. Which is better? Which is easier to use? Which is faster? Which is more convenient? I’ll answer all these questions and a whole lot more in this post. Grab a cup of tea, sit back, and enjoy!

That’s a Wrap! July Recap + August Goals

Uncategorized

hellothere!gifofficial
… and happy August! Welcome to my first post of the month! Just like that July is over. *waves to say goodbye to another great month* It was an amazing 31 days, with some ups and downs and everything in-between. I know this feels super cliche, but I thought it’d be fun to do a recap of what happened this month in my life, and share some goals for August (and the future!)

What? A New Name?

Uncategorized

cropped-joyunnewheader.jpgI know, I know. It all happened so fast! But I just couldn’t resist. So, why the change of name?

The name I “chose” in October of 2016 wasn’t really working for me anymore. It didn’t seem to be fitting, either. I thought over new name ideas, and after a while, I settled on “Joy Unspeakable”.

cropped-untitled.pngTo define the words…

Joy noun \ˈjȯi\ the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying

Unspeakable adjective \ˌən-ˈspē-kə-bəl\ incapable of being expressed in words

If we phrase them together they read “great delight and happiness incapable of being expressed with words”. Basically, inexpressible happiness.

SUNSHINE AWARD

Thank you Carol for nominating me for the Sunshine Award! This is my second blogging award I’ve received in 2 days… thank you SO much!

4(rather questions)

  1. When it comes to books, what’s your favorite genre to read? Historical fiction!
  2. Are you a righty or lefty? Righty! I know people who were lefties and trained their right… that’d be an awesome goal to set!
  3. Do you scream for ice cream too, or is it only me? Meh… I like ice-cream, but I’d rather have cake 😛
  4. Are you a tomboy or a girly girl? Honestly, a mix.
  5. If you had to choose one, would you choose flight, mind-reading, or invisibility? Mind reading would be kind of creepy, and so would invisibility. Flight is cool, but I’d have to choose invisibility (watch out, I may be right beside you…)
  6. Can you twitch your ears? Lol, nope.
  7. Describe yourself in three words. Creative, Musical, and tries to be athletic (pathetic, I know).
  8. Do you prefer walking flights of stairs or taking the elevator? Depends.
  9. Give one silly fact about yourself (your choice). I can roll my tongue in half….
  10. Who do you look up to the most/who’s your role model? Jesus!
  11. Lastly… do you wanna build a snowman? Haha… no. Just, no.
