It had been a rainy day, the clouds finally decided to part.
The sun was just about to set for the evening.
I strapped on my bright yellow rubber boots and headed to the edge of the forest to watch that sun go down.
So many times.
Countless times have I watched the sun go down.
Has it gotten old?
Will it ever?
Never, I tell you.
As I approached my watching spot, I began to notice that the forest was sparkling.
Raindrops. Everywhere there were raindrops.
Glistening with that orange sun behind them.
It was like a magical dream.
I needed my camera.
I was going to bring it but for some reason I didn't
I raced back to the house as fast as my short legs could take me.
In my bright yellow rubber boots, running through the forest, hopping over logs, ducking under low tree limbs.
Thankfully, I had gone out there too early.
I was too impatient to wait another 15 minutes.
But I'm so glad I didn't.
Finally, back to the house.
Grabbing my camera, and racing back to the edge of the forest.
I barely made it in time!
The running and hundreds of mosquito bites were SO worth it!

  Much love to all♥

So, today is going to be a fun post! I want to tell you all how I ice dye! It's super fun project! I know this would normally be a summer post and it's the second day of fall, but I tie-dye any season of the year ;-)
I'm sure you've all heard of tie-dying. This is a similar thing. I guess you could say that it's taking tie-dye to the next level. If you know me at all, you know I LOVE tie-dye. The whole process, I just find so thrilling! Every step is so fun!
Anyway, let's get on with it, shall we?!

 Step 1: Soak your shirt, ring it out.

 Step 2: Place a cooling rack on top of or in a small tub.

 Step 3: place your shirt on the rack. Any way you please! You can swirl it or fold it however you want. I just scrunched this one up.

Step 4: Pile the ice on top of the shirt!

Step 5: Pour the powder dye on top of the ice.

Step 6: Watch the magic happen! {The melting of the ice} Only, I was way too impatient to sit there and wait for the ice to melt, so I brought out my handy-dandy hairdryer and melted the ice ;-)
If you did this project out in the sun, I'm sure it would melt quite quickly. But I've only done it in the kitchen :-)

Step 7: After the ice is all melted, just wrap your shirt in plastic wrap like so:

and let it set for 6-8 hours. The longer it sets, the more vibrant the colors will be!

After it has set for 6-8 hours, rinse your shirt out until the water is almost clear. Then wash your shirt separately from any other clothes. It will still have more dye in it than you think. Or just hand wash it. {Clarifying: You only need to do that the first time you wash it. After that just wash it with like colors.}

And here is the finished product!

Luckily have a great friend who happens to be a model!

 Have a great! Now go ice dye! ;-)

Hello, everyone!!! First I'd like to welcome you to my blog! {Sorry for all the excitement, I've been wanting to do this for quite some time}
My name is Elisabeth, {yes, with an “S”!} I am 18 years old, I am a Christian. I'm from Illinois but currently living in Florida. I had an extremely difficult time moving here. God taught me so much about just trusting Him. But that's another story for another blog post.

I enjoy many little things in life, for example, writing, singing, painting, photography, laughing, rain, and sunshine, dancing, shopping, the sky, crocheting, spending time with family and friends, crafts, being outdoors, hiking, swimming, canoeing, and more. :-)

This blog will consist of all those lovely little things. 

I had a very hard time coming up with a name for my blog, because there are so many things I want to be blogging about. There aren't just a few subjects. So, I can't really sum up this blog other than saying “it's just my life.” My crazy, random, fun {most of the time} life.
I hope you enjoy all the fun, crazy, awesome adventures I share here.

I don't know how often I'll be posting on here. Hopefully at least once a week! If you have any suggestions on what you want me to blog about, just let me know!
I hope you have a lovely rest of the day!♥

"For Christ also suffered once for sin, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit."
