Some friends of mine Megan and Kendra and I are merging our design blogs and creating one called 3x Design. You can go on and look at what we have designed and decided which girls style you like best, then you can order and we will try to have the gilr you picked to design it for you, but if she is too busy, one of the other girls will do it. 3x Design hasn't officially "started" but you can still go and be a follower!

Interview with Kyann from Bloom! Magazine

| Filed under

Hello, this is Anna Katherine with her 2nd Interviews with Anna Katherine. Today joining us will be Kyann from Bloom! Magazine. Okay, here we go...

Anna Katherine: When and why did you start Bloom! Magazine?

Kyann:I started Bloom! Magazine in late July of 2010. I started Bloom! because I saw the need for Christian, wholesome magazines that could both inspire and encourage tween and teen girls!

Anna Katherine: What kinds of things are in the issues?

Kyann: Each issue features devotionals, interviews, DIY/craft articles, and some fun fiction articles as well!

AK:When did you ask Jesus to be your Savior?

Kyann: I asked Jesus to be my Savior when I was 5 years old.

AK: How was that experience?

Kyann: The experience changed my life forever-for the better! Without Christ in my life, I would have no purpose, nothing to strive or live for. Jesus Christ is my best friend!

AK: What are your siblings' names and ages?

Kyann: I'd prefer not to give out my siblings' first names as my parents would like to keep that private for Internet safety. I have 2 sisters and a brother. My sisters are 12 and almost 6; my brother is 9.

AK: What 3 Characteristics do you most strive to have?

Kyann: Hmm, this is a hard one as I would love to have many different characteristics! But, if I had to choose three, I would have to say patience, compassion, and respect.

Thank you and please join us next time at Interviews with Anna Katherine! Oh and please become a subscriber to Bloom! Magazine, I'm sure Kyann would appriciate it! You can do that here

At the beach eating lunch at a varey nice restaurant with my grandparents.

I have a lot of time on my hands {notice the picture}

My mom just took my sister to piano and will be back in 45 minutes. She left me home to work on a pound cake that I am entering in the fair. Mom still had to go and buy flour, so we found the pund cake recipe and under the Ingredients it didn't have flour. So my mom said, "Why don't you just make this while I am gone?" I replied, "Sure." So, after mom had driven off I started on th recipe. The first instruction was "Grease and Flour a 10 inch bundt pan." Haha, and why wasn' flour listed on the ingredients?! I will never know, so.. if you have a gmail account, add me to your contacts, and you can Google chat with me. I'm kinda lonely... Also, this is my 97th post!!

96th post!

This is my 96th post! I know I already had my 96th post, but I relized one of my posts was just a draft, so I deleted it. Sorry for the confusion. Just saying hi!

My 96th post!!

I am almost to my 100th post and you know what I'm going to do??!!

I'm not telling! Ha ha!! :)

You will just have to wait and see!!

I also might change my design on my 100th post, too!

I have some really exciting interviews with some lovely ladies coming up this mont, nov, dec, and jan!


Well, Good Morning October, how did you come so quickly?? Hi, didn't I just turn 11 yesterday, June 30? "Uh, no!" October says right in my face, I'm here whether you like it or not. I replied in a poem and it goes like this

I love fall leaves, seeing God's beatiful trees,
He made me, so this is what I can see,
Beatiful leaves, boutiful trees,
Other people like me, enjoying this October day!
