Design Inspo: Canva & Stencil

Hey y’all! One of my favorite things to do when I have some free time is mess around with making fun graphics. I wanted to share with you guys a couple of websites that I use.

Canva is free and super simple to use. I have created Pinterest graphics, blog headers, and collages with it. I love messing around with it. There’s lots of options. However, many pictures you may want to use do cost $1, but for the most part you can get very creative without spending any money.

These are a couple of the things I have created with canva so far.

Side note: If you haven’t watched 24 (hence the Jack Bauer quotes) you should definitely check it out!!! 🙂


Stencil* is another website, similar to Canva, but with more graphics and definitely geared towards social media. So if that’s your interest, I’d definitely go with Stencil. You can get a free account and create 10 images per month or you can pay monthly and have access to hundreds of thousands of free images and storage and lots of cool features. It’s very easy to use and more intuitive than Canva.

So…with that being said, have you guys ever tried these websites? Let me know! I’d also love to see any of your creations, so feel free to share. ❤

I Went to a Trump Rally!!! 🇺🇸

Hello all! You can’t guess where I went on Saturday! Actually you can cause you read the title…..I went to a TRUMP RALLY!!! It was amazing and super cool and crazy awesome and I am so glad I got up early, waited for 5 hours and got sore feet (and neck). 😀 Here’s a little bit about it and then a couple short vids and pics!!! Comment down below if you have ever gone to a Trump rally or if you plan too!


The rally was in Belgrade, so very near where I live, which was super awesome cause I didn’t have to get up way early or skip school/work. We waited in line (which was YUUGE btw; they expected 5,000 people and got almost 10,000!) for around 2 hours and then stood in the hanger for a couple more….then Air Force 1 landed! Super, duper amazingly cool to see it coming. And seeing the president in person was unreal. Honestly, having watched Trump on TV for the past three years and then actually being there is so awesome. It’s still sinking in.

The crowd was amazing, people were awesome, we had lots of fun talking to people and just sharing in the excitement. Crazy feeling being there and feeling the energy that Trump puts out. It’s happy, exciting, uplifting, positive and crazy American. We were also super close to the podium (which is good cause I’m short 😉 )!

Overall, going to a Trump rally was something on my bucket list and is one of the best things I’ve ever done. Will never forget it!

Here are some pictures and videos I took. My phone died right before he started talking, so the pics from during the rally are all from my sister: http://www.thelighthouseofessays.wordpress.com (go check out her blog!)
