7th House on the Left – Baby it’s cold outside brunch

I am not exactly sure where I saw this link earlier this week, but holy DIY brunch!   Pick & choose some ideas – or just look at it like eye candy and wish (like me) you entertained & entertained LIKE THIS!

Crappy Pictures – The Crappy Circus

I found Crappy Pictures a few months ago & whenever I need a laugh I go see what she’s been writing about.  This is one of my favorite posts lately & SOOOO relatable if you have children, or a husband.   I have had MY husband read it & his exact words “I can see how this is probably very funny if you are a mom”.  Ok – not meant for the men in our lives.

(the moments in between) – gluestickgirl – memory keeping monday: BAM

Lisa Truesdell (@gluestickgirl) is a scrapbook blogger I found almost a year ago.  Until this year she was a Garden Girl at Two Peas in a Bucket.  She stepped down at 2Ps to devote more time to her Creative Team duties at Studio Calico.  This is an older post, but one that really first caught my eye.

Intentional 2013

Posted on Leave a comment

I mentioned on facebook this week that I wanted to be more intentional with the blog this year. Here are a few ideas and PLEASE let me know what you think!

  • Learn it Tuesday (LiT)
  • Did it Thursday (DiTh)
  • Wordless Wednesday (I went out of day order on purpose – keep reading)
  • Friday Night Blogs (FnBlogs)

The first two (LiT & DiTh)  spring from an idea I heard in college that has stuck with me since

  1. You must Learn something to Do it
  2. You must Do something to Teach it
  3. You must Teach something to KNOW IT!

Learn Teach Do Know

Learn it Tuesday (LiT) – focused on any technique but mainly digi/techy stuff (including the Silhouette)

Wordless Wednesday (WW) – a popular MEME right now I enjoy seeing on other blogs & want to jump on board with

Did it Thursday (DiTh) – showcasing projects I finished – scrapbook pages (including Project Life), mini albums, quilts, etc.

Friday Night Blogs (FNB) – a showcase of blog posts that I have been reading (covering any topic)

Some of these will be weekly – others less often but still consistent. Let me know which you like the best before I make my final decisions.

Also – I am looking into the proper plugin to allow you to blog along with me on the LiT & DiTH posts and link your posts up.
