Mid-Week Check In

Hello! Just checking in… on a Thursday! I am thinking about switching my mid-week post to Thursdays. I seem to run out of time in the very beginning of the week, but have more time in the middle of the week to post. It just seems like it will work out better for my current schedule…

I have a bunch of great ideas for posts coming up for fall. But, here’s a pretty photo from my Instagram feed, just for fun in the meantime! Thanks for sticking with me here!

New Bedroom Decor

Hello! I just wanted to share a few new additions to my bedroom decor for the summer! Last year, I turned my bedroom into a black, gray, white, pink and gold heaven. I am still obsessed with how it turned out. Every once in a while, when I find a good deal on home decor that matches my style & speaks to me, I have to bring it home & add it to my room!

Last time I was at Home Goods, I found a couple great finds! First, I found a queen comforter by Kate Spade with polka dots in all my colors. It’s such a great quality and is so pretty. It really brightens up the room.Summer Bedroom Decor | Created by Jen Blog

(I’m still working on getting that part) It’s cushy and tiny and sooo cute!Summer Bedroom Decor | Created by Jen BlogFinally, I wanted to add a couple new art pieces to my photo wall. I bought some black & white scrapbook paper from JoAnn, cut them to 8×10, and printed out a couple of my favorite quotes form April Green’s Bloom book (linked below) on vellum. If you have not read this book, get it! It’s so inspiring & full of positive vibes, and seeing the words on my wall reminds me to stay positive.

Black and White Inspired Bedroom

Hello! Happy November!

I have been wanting to write this post for a while now, so it’s about time to just do it! I redecorated and repainted my bedroom back in September. I had been seeing photos of these lush dark gray rooms on Instagram, and was so inspired! Gray is one of my favorite colors, and the opposite of how my room looked (it was sunny, creamy yellow). It was time for a change.

What I didn’t expect is how obsessed with black and white accents I became! Black and white look terrific with these gray walls! I also have pops of gold and a hint of pink throughout my room.

Take a look!Black and White Inspired Bedroom | JM Creates

Summer in Black & White

Hello!

I have been wanting to do a black & white summer series of photographs for a long time! I finally just went out and did it last weekend. Black & white photos in general leaves some imagination to the viewer, unlike color photos that spell everything out to you. Black & whites are mysterious in a way, and challenge you as a photographer to tell the story without color.

Last week, I shared Summer in Color… don’t know which series I like better! I think there’s room enough for both.  πŸ™‚

Scrapbook Layout | Enjoy the View

Hello!! Happy Sunday! July is rolling by fast – I need it to slow down just a bit so I can enjoy summer some more.

Here’s a new layout. We have tons of lilies in our garden, and some of them are still getting ready to bloom, like in this photo. I kept the background simple in black & white, so the colors of the photo could shine!  πŸ™‚
