So we all seem a little lost on what to do next after all the excitement of preparing for Leslie's surprise shower. We have been tossing around a few ideas, making some tentative plans, and hoping that a few more dear friends would like to take the plunge and help us get some big things happening around here. Here are some of our ideas:
~a scrappy sort of swap
~a month of scrapbooking
~a month of photography
~a month of sewing projects
~a month of paper arts
~a month of yarn
~sew simple Holiday gifts
~the art is found
~it's a "good thing" every day for a month
~weekly new found love links (a whole post of nothing but links)
~OPAM (one project a month)
Some of these ideas would be combined in to a larger grouping, at the moment they are inspirations. Some would be month long events with one, two, three, or more contributors writing posts and sharing expertise. Other's are for everyone to share their own ideas .
Our hope is to create a blog that's not just about the home, but about our lives. Our creative, inspired, busy, loving, every day lives where we long to creative something beautiful because it satisfies something deep inside of us. We want to share our ups and downs, or need for prayer, and our hope for a better tomorrow. A place where we can still connect and be involved in each others lives and share the makings of special things.
How cool would it be to have a monthly meetup online where we all jump in the chat box and share and giggle and enjoy delicious brownines together?
To share what fun gifts we're making for our children, our husbands, boyfriends, and family?
Set out a word challange and have everyone show off the intreptation?
To join in on a swap together and get goodies from our dearest friends in the mail?
If you guys are interested, please let us know. We basically have a blank canvas we are trying to organize and we would love your input. If you are a contributor, it's no different than the shower blog and you are free to post anything under the topic of domesticity freely and anytime you choose.
Hugs to you all!
