Starting the Year Off Right

January 6, 2014 § 1 Comment

Hey, there! How’ve you been? I’ve missed you! Seriously, I really have missed blogging and sharing all the fun stuff I get up to (and okay, having somewhere to whinge when projects aren’t working out quite right). So, even though I haven’t had a chance to do the big visual overhaul I’ve been wanting to do here, I’ve decided to start the new year as I mean to continue: with regular blog features, interspersed with the occasional off-the-cuff post.

I’ll be bringing back Tasty Tuesdays (something yummy and the recipe so you can make it yourself) and Found It on the Internet Fridays (a craft project I discovered on the internet — usually Pinterest), and introducing Inspiration Wednesdays, which will be all about the things and people that are inspiring my creativity.

I’m also going to try to get back into Fat Mum Slim’s Photo-A-Day Challenge…I did get an awesome new camera for Christmas, after all. I’m not sure I’ll be up to posting every day this month  (or every month — I’d like to continue doing the challenge all year long!), so I might do a weekly or monthly roundup of the photos I take instead. We’ll see how this one shakes out.

Last but not least, to really get myself back into the groove of creating and blogging about it, I’m bringing back Make’n’Tell in February. In case you don’t know or remember what this is, here’s what I wrote the first time around: Make something every day AND blog about that thing. Remember when you were in grade school and you had Show’n’Tell and you brought your whatever in and told everyone a little bit about it? Pretty much the same thing here, except the whatever has to be created by me and the telling is done with pictures on this blog instead of in a classroom full of snot-nosed kids. I’m going to follow the rules pretty much as they originally were set out, with the added challenge of keeping the aforementioned feature days intact — I’ll be doing a full post on this later in the week.

It feels good to be back!
