Ah, a new year. Although I don't get caught up in all the new year resolution talk (mostly because I don't keep resolutions), I do think there is something refreshing and hopeful about January 1st. For instance, I got a new planner. It's so clean! The pages aren't wrinkled, there isn't spilled coffee on it, and the cover is still shiny. I just have this feeling of determination to plan and organize and start again.
In the spirit of planning, I came up with a schedule of what you can expect to find on my blog this year. I am really excited for the year to come and all of the big plans I have for little lovelies!
Monday: Tutorials, projects, works-in-progress, guest post announcements, etc. I am going to try to be better about sharing more of the crafty things I work on. I make quite a few things that never make it to the blog and I thought you guys might like to see them, even if there isn't a tutorial to go along with it.
Tuesday: See Monday - more of the same. Some weeks I might have so much going on that I need two days to share all of the creative goodness. Some weeks I might only post on Monday. It'll be a surprise!
Wednesday: I want to share links to things that I find interesting. Maybe shopping sources, maybe other blogs, maybe your blog?, funny stuff, tutorials, freebies, etc. I am open to suggestions. I know that I love this sort of thing from other bloggers because it's like discovering little treasures. Some of my favorite blogs and resources have been found this way, so I want to pass on some of my favorites.
Thursday: I am perhaps most excited about this addition to my schedule! I will be sharing projects that I have done inspired by something I pinned on Pinterest. I have something like 600 things pinned and I have only done a handful of them. This whole blogging community is about inspiring and being inspired, and I want to act on all of the ideas I am gathering up. So, I'll be doing one thing a week off my pinboards. I would love for you to participate. Perhaps you would be interested in this being turned into a link party? I would love your feedback on this!
Friday: I'll be continuing Five Things Friday, but trying to be more consistent about it. I have been kind of hit and miss in the past, so my goal is not to miss a week.
Saturday: I'll be sharing a picture each week that represents a moment in our family's lives. I considered a picture a day sort of thing, but realized that I had already skipped January first. Not a good start. So, onto once a week, which I think is much more realistic and manageable for me. At the end of the year, I'll have 52 pictures to be made into a family book, along with my blog posts that remind me what that picture meant to us.
Whew! Ambitious. Hopefully not too ambitious. I am excited to get started, and I am so happy that you are here for the ride!
