I made this beauty a few years ago and shared the secret here on my blog. In the past, it has worked like a good luck charm, getting spring to show up. Amazingly, I just read the forecast after hanging my wreath and our forecast is for temps near the 60s this weekend. If your forecast isn't that good, maybe you should head to craft store and make one for your front door.
We are going out tonight for the second installment of SBE. That's our new way to spend one on one time with each of our kids. We missed our February date due to busy schedules and illnesses. But we are back on track and everyone is looking forward to it. My husband and I were not sure if the kids would latch on to this idea but they are the ones who have been reminding us to get back on track. Which proves that they have not gotten too old to want to spend time with us. Those days may be coming.
I heard a snide little term this week which I suspect is directed at lots of bloggers out there: "branded online content repurposers". It was in tweet criticizing unoriginal online material and those who fill their sites with other people's stuff. I won't name the tweeter ('cuz that would be doing exactly what this person is being critical of). Anyway, I like the term because you do see a lot of that on the web. But it doesn't bother me. I have no brand and I rarely repurpose others' stuff. I just repurpose my own...like the two links above that you should click on. Ahem.
Speaking of brands, what do you think of my new header and background? I don't love it but it is at least something new. I had the same old one for a long time and was getting tired of seeing it. I know I'm no graphic artist. My husband says it is too harsh and the image doesn't relate to anything. I can't disagree. But he still loves me and my blog. Tell me what you think if you have any thoughts. You can't hurt my feelings. Really, would love to know.
