gift ideas for the bookish, the dreamers and the ones in between!// blogmas!

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy bitsy corner of the web! I am so excited because today will be my first #blogmas post of the month! I have a bunch of posts coming up soon and I will try my best to be consistent!

Today’s blog post is going to be a Christmas gift guide! Unsure what you want for Christmas or what to get your friends and family? This guide should be able to help! Also, a great way to support me and get gifts you want is to send this post to your family and friends! That way my post gets more views and you can get more of the gifts that you actually want! ( notice my sly marketing aha!)

But, enough of my rambling, let’s get started!!

📖Gifts for bibliophiles and book dragons📖

As the days pass by more and more book dragons (they are like bookworms but more vicious!) are being born. Soon the book dragons will take over the world! Are you a book dragon? Or do you have one in your family? This list should help you out!

📖 books! Now, this may seem like an easy gift, yet there are many ways this goes wrong! Bookish people tend to be picky, so if you are buying a book as a gift for someone, consider there favorite genres or authors. Although I am thankful for any gift, I feel a bit annoyed when someone buys me a random book that doesn’t align with my bookish interests and isn’t written very well. So short story long, if your buying a book for someone, buy a book that THEY would want to read!

📖Barnes and Noble gift card! This is a ridiculously easy gift that any book nerd would love! You don’t have to spend hours picking the perfect book because they can pick it themselves! Plus they can buy more than books including merch, movies and even coffee! It’s a great gift!

📖 Book Merch! There’s only one thing that book dragons like more than books. BOOK MERCH!! Merch, (short for merchandise) is a great gift! Merch can range from coffee cups to backpacks to t-shirts to notebooks! So if there’s a certain book series your book dragon is talking about all the time, consider buying merch for them!

✍🏾Gifts for the aspiring authors✍🏾

Ahh, I don’t have a long intro for this so let’s just dive into the gifts!

✍🏾journals! Every author starts off with an idea, and the best way to get your idea down is to have a journal! When I say journal I don’t mean a basic one from Walmart, I’m talking about a cute journal! You can even make a decorate a random one and collage photos of things someone might like!

✍🏾 Scrivner!  Scrivener is a word-processing program and outliner designed for authors. Scrivener provides a management system for documents, notes, and metadata. This allows the user to organize notes, concepts, research and whole documents for easy access and reference. I’ve never used it, but my dad does and says that it works really well! This is a great gift for a writer who wants to get serious!

✍🏾mugs! Writers love mugs. Mugs store the fuel that helps them write and survive the fictional and real-world! To spice things up, get a cool mug that has a pun or a cute design on it and fill it with their favorite teas, coffees, candies, you name it!

💄Gifts for the fashionistas and beauty gurus💄

💄glossier! Glossier is a popular makeup/ skincare brand that is cute and all-natural (I think) I have only tried there face wash and lip gloss! They have a lot of great reviews and a cute design!

💄a gift card to there favorite clothing store! I highly recommend this over buying clothes for someone! You may not get them exactly what they want, so why not give them a gift card so they can pick out something they really want!

(yeah that’s all I don’t know a lot about makeup and fashion XD)

🎨Gifts for artists🎨

🎨 Ohuhu brush tip markers! Ohuhu markers are great markers for any artist! I love them so much. They recently have come out with brush tip markers! They are inexpensive but have outstanding quality!

🎨 Sketchbooks! Sketchbooks are great gifts! As an artist, I use up my sketchbooks very quickly, so its a pretty nice gift to give!! I recommend Canson XL mixed media sketchbooks, you can use any medium in it!

🎨 Drawing Tablet! This is great for someone who likes to do digital art! DRawing tablets can range from large to small and there are so many inexpensive yet good quality ones on amazon! I recommend the brands Huion and Wacom!

📸Gifts for Bloggers, Vloggers, and Photographers!📸

📸A domain! A domain is a great gift for a blogger! A domain allows the blogger to have a .com url instead of a wordpress.com or a blogspot.com website

📸 a camera! A camera is a great gift! There are so many different types and not all are super expensive! Right now I use a Canon Elph Powershot!

📸 adobe! Adobe is great for editing photos, editing videos and creating designs! Getting an adobe membership is a great gift for content creators!!

🎈my 13 birthday🎈

fall hello

Welcome to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web!

Some of you might know that yesterday was my birthday! This year for my 13 birthday my mom hosted a cute little party! It was so much fun and I loved it! I hadn’t had friends over to my house in a really long time so I was really excited. I also hadn’t had a birthday party in a while!

We started the party off with a little edible necklace bar! We made our own edible necklaces and chatted for a while.

Then we decorated journals with stickers, paper, and washi tape!

Here is how mine turned out! IMG_3333.JPG

Isn’t it cute! I had so much fun with my friends and I am so grateful that my parents let me have a little party!The party took a lot of work but in the end, it turned out amazing!

♥updates, surprises, and what I got for Christmas♥

Updates.png

il_fullxfull.1076156844_dsphMERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I am really excited about this post! I have some big news that I can’t wait to share!

Let’s Start off with blog updates!

1Elysian Artiste has hit 111 followers!!!!

Image result for yayyyy gif

I just want to thank you all so much! This means a lot to me and I am really grateful for all of the amazing people I’ve met on WordPress! Thanks so much!

d Stats Are BOOMING!

Elysian Artiste is getting 33 views every two hours, every day. I am not sure if that is a lot or a little but I am still thankful! Elysian Artiste has gone from a few views a day, to 33 views hourly each day, that is amazing!

 

d (1)Starting  Elysian Artiste has helped me find the true me.

I have started many blogs about my various interests, Most of the things I was blogging about, wasn’t really what I truly loved, It was just popular things others were blogging about, such as American Girl Dolls and Beanie Boos. I didn’t get that far and I felt as if I was pretending to truly love those items. I realized that just because other girls wrote about their dolls and got a lot of visitors, comments, likes, etc didn’t mean that was what I should do.  So I started Elysian Artiste and it was one of the best choices I ever made. I learned that being yourself and doing what you love, is better than pretending to be someone else. I posted my stories, art, and photography, because that was me, and that is what I love to do!

big news

My parents let me get a youtube channel! I am super duper excited and I can’t wait!

What I got for Christmas

So I didn’t get a lot of items for Christmas, but my parents gave me more opportunities and privileges.

1 A YOUTUBE CHANNEL

I am so thankful! I have always wanted a youtube channel! Every time I was unboxing something or drawing or something like that I would record myself and talk to my “so-called’ subscribers. Now I finally have one! I am so happy! I have been prepping for this channel for years and I am excited to make it a real channel!

dA WRECK THIS JOURNAL

For countless years, I have been watching people wreck these journals, and I always thought that they were so COOOOOL! It literally was the only thing I watched for a while. After a few months of watching the videos, I kind of stopped because I got interested in some other things but I still wanted one. So in November, I started to look at the videos some more and I knew I really wanted and I thought it was to help me unleash my creative juices, even more, inspire me to think out of the box.

So basically, long story short, I got one! I actually just decorated the cover today and I love it! I am going to be making a series of posts and Videos about the journal and show you my progress!
