Mixed Media Collage on Record Album Jacket (from the series Wanderlust)
Come along with me as I change this blog for the better. I have enjoyed the randomosity but had sometime to think about it during our recent holidays, and I would like to have more of a plan. Hmmmmm, me! I just think that it would be helpful for me to have a bit of a guide, a loose guide, to what I would like to cover in each week. And, it would let regular readers know what to expect each week. I have decided not to do something specific each day, such a Monday being a recipe, Tuesday being a craft, because I am not sure I would stick with it, but I do want to have several topics that I will cover each week, every week. They are as follows...
1) 365 Days With Kiddos - This is something I have been yearning to do. It will be ideas and inspiration for moms, dads, and kiddos, on ways to spend time together, being creative, being grateful, making memories, and so much more. There will be lots of surprises! I will post something EACH DAY, some simple (just a line or two), some with added suggestions to take things in a more personal direction, and some that have recipes or craft tutorials. I will also include guest bloggers. The sky is the limit. This is a way for me to record the many things I do with my kiddos and to share them with others who are interested in connecting as a family in a fun and meaningful way. I will welcome comments, as always, and I think these posts will be all the richer if you let me know if you do these activities, and how you go about them, or if I have inspired you to do one of them, what YOU did.
2) One Recipe - There will be one recipe each week, in addition to any that are in 365.
3) Photo Day - Since I am a professional photographer, and I love to share my images, there will be a day where I share maybe one photo, maybe a whole photo essay with you.
4) Vintage Love - This is where I will share my favorite vintage finds, whether from my own collection, or that I have recently found while thrifting and rummaging.
Now, there will also be some topics that I blog about bi-monthly or monthly. These will include What I Am Working On (my art), Book Recommendations, My Talented Friends Feature, Grown Up Crafting, Giveaways, Happy & Healthy (natural health tips) and a Wanderings (travel) Feature. Whoo Hoo! I hope you will enjoy my new blog. I have put it out there and will now make it so...
