Thinking ahead!

I've been thinking ahead to the New Year and what direction I'd like my blog to take. At a recent scrapbook retreat I attended, some of the girls had a book that they use to challenge each other every month to do a certain idea or procedure in their scrapbooks. Do any of you know if there is anything like that for Blogging? Also have any of you seen the magazine called "Artful Blogging"? I saw it at the craft store and was really excited by some of the ideas and blog sites. These have been some of the most enjoyable hours I have spent these last months and I'm so glad Stephanie at the Whispering Creek House introduced me to the "Blogging World"! My son asked me (he's 14 :) "Why do you like blogging so much? Is it like scrapbooking or what?" That really struck a chord in me and I've thought about that a love for art, scrapbooking, writing, journaling, and getting to know people from the's all part of Blogging and Yes, thats why I like it so much! May each of you who have become a part of my life in this way be blessed for all the joy you have given me! Love you all!


  1. Oh Karen you are doing so great! Your blog is beautiful and inspiring! I love the artful blogging book too! I read it at barnes and noble- wish I coulda bought it! LOL anyway tomorrow I am doing a post on on of my favorites so check back I think you will enjoy it too!

  2. I love blogging to:) I think its more for yourself then anyone else(well for me it is) almost like a journal people read. But I do like getting to know new people

  3. I have been thinking the same thing I want my blog to stay as it is or go a new direction? I am very random, so each post usually depends on my mood:) I totally agree with Sharla too..blogging is more for me than for me doing it for others:D I get such joy from just writing whatever strikes a chord in me that day. Plus I feel like it challenges me to be more creative & thoughtful..which I love! Your blog has been beautiful, uplifting & fun to read & I have been blessed meeting the blogging side of you!:)
