Today, I was looking around at some of the crafty blogs that are still out there, and I got the idea to use some of my own lettering as my header, rather than using fonts and stock i mages. That will make my site ‘my’ site, rather than my words decorated with someone else’s art. And seeing that the goal of this site is to share my own artwork, I think it’s a good approach.
Last night, I finished the knitting and edging on the sweater that I’ve been working on. I like it – but if I ever do it again, I’m going to use a more ‘upscale’ yarn than the craft store yarn that I used. It’s nice, but it doesn’t drape and hang quite like I want it to – so I’ll use a superwash type yarn to make it again if I decide to. I ordered some buttons from Amazon and they should be here early next week, so once I put them on, and stitch things together – it will be all done and ready to wear. I’ll take a picture when it’s all done and wearable. I have to figure out what my next yarn project will be – I have a list of patterns on Ravelry that I have set aside for 2018 – I just need to figure out what it will be. (And of course, get it to all fit in with my word of the year).
As this blog grows, and through the weeks and months, I’ll be creating the categories that I need to keep things organized. I don’t want to create a bunch now, and not have anything in them – I only want to make the ones that I need and use. So, keep an eye out for that 🙂
Since the end of the year is right around the corner (really – 9 days away!) I’m going to posts about my planner plan for 2018. Both my bullet journal and my mini Happy Planner and how I have it all set up. A few friends have asked for an overview and instructions on how I use my day to day tools – so I think that’s going to be the focus for a while. Individual posts for the overall setup – and then monthly recaps and flip throughs seem like the best way to do it. I also want to try and figure out how to incorporate video into it – because some folks learn and understand better when they have images to look at.
We’ll see where inspiration leads me!
