We would love you to become part of the family! So come on in and show off those Projects, Recipes, Printables, Stories, Upcycled Creations, Farmhouse Jewels and everything in between!
Hi there everyone and HAPPY FALL to You All!!! It’s finally here but still waiting for those cool breezes!!! Can’t wait to see all the creative goodness you have for us today! Have you all had your first…second… third…Pumpkin Spice Latte yet? I have my usual Fall addiction to them but this year I am totally making them myself… they are low in calories and actually Vegan… so I am saving tons of calories and $’s lol!!! Let us know what you have been up to? As always we want you to know how much we love and appreciate you all!!!
Ok… update on my “Me” page… I am still working on it but trying to do it the right way. I am also trying to express what my over all vision is for the blog now and in the future. Hoping to get it right this time… so stay tuned… it should be done in the next 2 weeks. Anyone out there working on theirs??? Fill us in on what you are doing ok : )
Time for a Blogging Tip! Ok…I am going to start out with a question… Do you sometimes (lol) have a problem coming up with the “subject” matters for your posts? Then as you are skimming through all different blogs chatting about news… fashion… home decor… crafts…etc… all of a sudden you are inspired and say… I would love to do a post centered around this… and you THINK you are going to remember. Well… unfortunately my friends many of us don’t! So I highly suggest that you have a cute little notepad near your computer and when you get that inspiration or idea… write it down… really… physically write it down and keep that pad near by at all times. Of course if you don’t want to write it on a pad… you can open up a note file and store your ideas there labled BLOG POST IDEAS… make sure to keep all of your ideas in ONE place… don’t jot them down all over the place because you are not going to remember what you did with them. Believe me… it really helps!
With the Holidays right around the corner … if it is at all possible… try to get at least a week or two ahead of schedule so in case you have unexpected things pop up (God only knows right : ) you will still look like you are running a well oiled machine and that is always a good thing. Remember ladies… the last quarter of the year is your time to shine… CPM’s are up and it is a great reward for all of your hard work through out the year.
I know these are SUPER SIMPLE Tips…but sometimes you forget how important they can be.
Oh… One more for today. There are times when I am writing I feel as though I should write more. Have you ever felt that way? Well here is my tip… if you covered everything you wanted to say… don’t artificially try to lengthen it. Once you have covered everything you want to cover… it’s over. There is no right or wrong … so give yourself a break! I use to add more because I thought it “should” be longer. Do you know what made me realize that I shouldn’t lengthen it with just words? Because I said to myself I really don’t enjoying reading on and on if it is not relevant… so why would I put you through that lol!!!
Sending tons of hugs and love to all and now…Let’s Get This Party Started!

Hi Andrea – Thank you for hosting and for the feature! You are always so kind. I love all of the features this week – I’m going to be a pinning machine! I actually have the opposite problem as you described – too many ideas to write about and not enough time! Wishing you a wonderful week! Hugs, Holly
