How-To for Picnik

Okay :)

Awhile ago, Mary [from Classic Mary Moments ] suggested I do a post about how to use !!! And all the cool editing tools :) I'll use this picture:

and show the end result :) Really, it's simple! I'll explain it to you in 4 steps! You just have to be creative!!! Kendra Thaler also uses on some of her photos. Check out her page and see how she uses picnik :) For picnik, there are premium and FREE effects. I use the FREE ones :) the effects will say if it's premium or not.

Step 1: after I uploaded my photo on picnik, I do touch ups (rotate, use red eye if need be, crop the photo for a more closed-in effect if I feel like it'll look better, and adjust the exposure and color) You have to fiddle with the adjusting and some stuff you won't even use because it might not look right :) but give it a try because ya neva know lol

Step 2: go to the 'create' tab and go to touch ups. You'll want to do any necessary touch ups :) there is blemish fix and teeth whiten and many other but I suggest only these 2 (because they are FREE)

Step 3: stay in the 'create' tab but go to effects... I love pretty much ALL of them and have used probably ALL of them as well :) The ones I use the most are: black&white, soften, vignette, cross-process, focal b&w, focal soften, and if u scroll down to the bottom of the effects, there is "adjustable threshold" :) I use that and you have to do alot of adjusting to fit the picture.

Step 4: Now, you can either go to 'text' and 'stickers' (and add some words/clip arts to your picture) or you can finish and save your photo!   

Wallah! You're done :) Like I said, you are going to have to play around with it and do what fits your style :) It's super awesome!

Have fun picniking!

P.S If you have any other questions, feel free to leave a comment :)

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

This place has become h…

Don't be ashamed

Since my previous post, Walgreen's called me in October and offered me a Pharmacy Technician position! How amazing is that?!  I was so thankful to get hired by my intern site because I knew the patients, the daily routine, and they already felt like my work family.

When the time came to order my scrubs, there was no way I would wear their scrubs pants and I spoke up right away. I told my manager, and guess what? He sent out an email, and it was approved for me to wear a scrub skirt. Let's just say I was the first for them :) but I get so many compliments at the pharmacy! So many of my patients have come in and commented on how cute it was, how they haven't seen a scrub skirt, didn't even know they made them. And OH MY GOODNESS, the compliments on my hair! LOL!

Let this be a reminder for all the girls - all my friends - don't be afraid or ashamed of what (and Who) we stand for! You are a light! :)


The Struggle is Real

I am not usually the person who spreads their woes on Facebook, Instagram, or blog. Tonight may be the exception but I will refrain from letting emotions get the best of me.

We are all facing trials. Whether you are 16 years old and tempted to cut your hair, 18 years old and thinking about leaving the church since you are technically an 'adult', 21 years old and being pressured to drink, or 24 years old and struggling with hurt and depression.

The struggle is REAL!

The truth is, we are all at different points in our walk with God and, believe it or not, the trials are ALL God-ordained. They have been put in our life specifically for us and to make us more like Christ. The struggles you are facing are a test of your faith and love for God, but they are also there so you can learn from your mistakes and help others when they go through the same trial.

Honey, if you are dealing with hurt, I could quote scripture after scripture giving you encouragement and to cast your cares on Go…
