Birthday Wish List

Dimes and Donuts Birthday Wish list

This post seems juvenile especially since back in the Xanga days (did anyone else have a Xanga!?) basically all I posted was wish lists. Maybe someday years from now I’ll look back on this and laugh at what I wanted just like I do at my old Xanga posts now. With that being said, I’ve seen quite a few birthday wish list posts (there’s a ton of August babies out there) lately and I enjoy seeing what people are wishing for on their birthdays! My birthday is coming up next week so I figured I’d share with you all some things I’ve been eyeing lately. For my friends and family out there reading this, no pressure. ;) I’m only kidding, guys. But really, if you needed ideas…

Left to right, top to bottom: Giant balloon numbers for my age! Classes starts the DAY AFTER my birthday, talk about a bummer but I’d love this Herschel Supply Co Settlement Backpack. How fun is this desert print dress? It’s coincidence this Rifle Paper Co planner starts in August. A DONUT CHOCOLATE BAR, say what!? These little cactus studs are adorable and would match any outfit. Since my Target knock-offs bit the dust, these Sam Edelman sandals have been on my wish list. A perfect tote bag; the Metropolitote from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Okay I realize this wish list is a little cactus heavy, I’m not sorry because look at this dress! Yep, even a cactus phone case. Disney is just about a month away, this Instax film is perfect. Last but not least, I can re-live my childhood with a DIY crystal cactus grow kit! How awesome!

I’m surrounded by many talented people in my life and in the blogging world. Sharing Creativity is a way to show that I am proud of them as well as a way to share their talents with you all. Whether their talents include photography, crafting, baking, whatever, I’m excited to share their creativity! Today I’d like you all to meet Molly Kate from The Sun Room blog. She’s here to share her awesome graphic design creations with us! Be sure to head over and check out her blog, she’s got a bunch of beautiful and free printables up for grabs!

MEET MOLLY KATE

Hello everyone! I’d like to start off by thanking Miss Christine for featuring me this week…I’m very excited to be sharing my passion with you guys! My name is Molly Kate, and I’m a senior graphic design student at Texas Christian University. For those of you who might be wondering what exactly a graphic designer does, well, that changes dramatically from person to person. We’re commercial artists, packaging designers, illustrators, creative directors, website designers, ad men (or women!), branding specialists, typography lovers…it’s a pretty broad field. As for me, I decided I didn’t really want to choose a specific title: I’ll just stick with designer, and let everyone else decide what I am for themselves.

Virginia Safari Park

A trip to Virginia Safari Park via DimesandDonuts.com

I probably get more excited over animals than anything else in life. Animal videos are a killer, show me a funny one and I’m down for the count. With that being said, the Virginia Safari Park has been on my travel list for a long time now, I put it on my summer bucket list, and Cameron and I finally went this past Tuesday! The park is a 180 acre drive-through zoo with over 1,000 animals from 6 different continents. I loaded up my camera and we headed for the mountains. The drive to Natural Bridge, Virginia was beautiful. It was an easy two hour drive and we even took a few stops at little overlooks on the side of the road to admire the mountains. Continue after the jump to see our little safari adventure and prepare for photo overload.
