Happy Sunday everyone!
Our trip to Mom's was tons of fun and we were sad to leave. My mom surprised me BIG TIME with this beautiful head band that she made for me:
Isn't that awesome?! I love it!
I've been thinking a lot about my goals for 2010 lately. I'm not one that's big on goals as a rule. lol But for some reason I've really been seriously setting up some goals for myself this year. I won't bore y'all with them all but there are a couple that involve the blog and I would love some feedback:
1. An idea came to me today that I'm really hoping will become something cool. Most of us crafty people have huge stashes of stuff we'll never even remember we have, much less use. (Maybe I'm the only one? lol) So today I got the idea of an artistic co-op. It would be a core (read: small) group of people that can pass along supplies that other people in the group might need for various projects they're working on (for instance: I'm in serious need of clock faces and gears, could be real or shaped paper/chipboard-it's driving me nuts that I can't find this! lol). You would pay postage obviously to send something to someone but other than that it would be free and it could be a way to share with one another and meet an artistic need without having to run to the store. :D We could start a Yahoo (type) group. What do you think?
2. I definitely want to do some more giveaways on the blog. Since money is an issue it would be mainly things that I make. Is that tacky? lol
3. I am currently involved in a circle journal swap with Gauche Alchemy but I really want to host my own circle journal swap this year. I would love to have people involved that have never done one before. This is a great way to share your work with other artists and to see their work up close. I would keep the group relatively small and would run a VERY tight ship in terms of things running smoothly and easily. lol Anyone out there interested in participating? I would also be interested in doing an ATC swap as well and would love to find some sort of swap where I could include those fabulous international artists I know!
4. And last be certainly not least, THE BACHELOR STARTS TOMORROW NIGHT! YIPPEE!!!!! lol So starting at some point this week (hopefully Tuesday) I'm going to post recaps of each episode in my own snarky type way. So heads up if you're not into the show you can skip that post. lol ;)
I think that's it! At least for now...lol. Please feel free to give me some feedback on these ideas in your comments or e-mail me at justaddglitter @ gmail.com. Now, I'm off to try and catch up on some blog reading, its been forever! lol
To end with, here's a video of Toot taking a stroll at mom's house. She's just barely holding on so it won't be long now before she's off and running! By the way, she's a little cranky at the end because I made her walk back and forth a couple of time trying to get some good video. lol
Have a great day everyone!
