Video Tutorial: Putting blog names on pictures

So today's post is my very first video tutorial.

But first....

The winner of my facebook giveaway for my Bear Snores On pack was Lisa R.!!
You can still check out the pack HERE.

Ok -
let me paint how my Monday planning-at-home-day went for ya...

I woke up was making my coffee...
All of a sudden, I hear Brooklynn laughing and then something hitting the tile.

Yep .

My phone. Now, I have a Samsung Galaxy, which I LOOOOVE!!

but when I picked it up, THIS is what it looked like


ugh. And guess who doesn't have insurance on her phone???
Really?? With a one year old and 3 year old you don't have insurance on your phone?? Yeah... I know.

Oddly enough, I could still use it.

Well, then I went to go make my dinner for that night - it was a crockpot meal (shhh... don't tell the hubs, he HATES crockpot meals - he says they taste different. Anyone else's husband say this?? It's so weird to me). Well, I went to get the meat, and i opened the fridge that was in the garage, and ewwwwwww!!! The meat was expired by like FOUR days - bleh!! Right in the trash. Man, what a WASTE of money!

THEN, throughout the day, we were outside on the back patio playing, and then I look over and see Autumn doing this....


Yes. Autumn had busted through the screen on the porch door. Le sigh....

AND this was also the day that Brooklynn was at her worst for teething. She was SO miserable :(

I had to carry her around singing "you are my sunshine" over and over to her.


But can I say? I was NOT mad at the day. I don't know why or how...lol. But I wasn't. 

AND the first few days back to work have been AWESOME! My kids are behaving so well and I am getting a lot accomplished. I'm just so impressed with them!

Anyway, getting to the REAL reason for the post....

My VERY FIRST VIDEO TUTORIAL!

 I want to give a BIG shout out to Tessa from Tales from Outside the Classroom, for showing me how to do these video tutorials! I'm addicted to them now!! haha!
(so let me know if there's anything you want a video on!)

I've had a lot people ask me how I put my blog name on my pictures (like on the picture below)


So, that's what today's tutorial is on.

Hope it helps!!
