Always on my mind ... a little red birdie

OK , I will admit it. I am in love with Polyvore. Polyvore is really close to being my new best friend. This Blogging your way e-course is the absolute best and I would highly recommend it to any and everyone, who has some interest in blogging. With every step I take and definitely with every class I take, I feel it is very important to pause and adjust to what one has just learned and witnessed. This BYW e-course will not be over for a least a few more weeks ... Yet, I feel as if I learned and relearned so much already. The photography portion of this course has been somewhat of a surprise and has ignited a sense of renewed interest in so many of the arts for me, including the art of organization. Leslie (the BYW photography teacher)  is a divinely organized photographer/home maker whose impact on me was multiplied with the sudden loss of Monica's quilt block = loss of time = me praying for 4 days = Monica's quilt block found = quilt to Marianne in one hell-of -a hurry = me reassessing my organizational efforts. So that's it folks, I'm rethinking & recycling my every thought. My thoughts on family & friends, my thoughts on my business, my thoughts on home & life. It's all pretty exciting, if you ask me. What this means is when 2011 arrives, I'll be ready. With only three months left in this year, I've also decided to due a year end review, yep I'm gonna try to look at everything, business wise all at once, in one feel swoop ... right here ... so stay tuned to this station. The 9 month review will post on Thursday, Sept 30 2011. What about you, is it time to review?


  1. I love the birdie, all parts of it !
    It is good to get organized. The BYW class made me drop a few activities that I was doing, because I needed more time, so in away I am organizing also. :>)
    Good luck with yours.

  2. it has been a year of review and learning and moving forward...
    the bird is wonderful.

  3. Such a lovely post and BYW is really awesome. :) I am a huge fan of Leslie's work and her photos always make me smile! Have a lovely merry happy week and love to you!

  4. I know for sure that it is time for me to review. I need a moment to breathe in the midst of all this flurry. Very interested to read your assessment.

  5. Sounds like a great investment of ones time. Glad you're enjoying the polyvore course you are involved with. Always fun to further our skills.
    I appreciate your taking the time to comment on my guest blog post at Kim Klassens Inspiration Studio. I am a newbie there and it being my first post, I had no clue how it would be rec'd. Thanks for making me feel welcome. I look forward to sharing more in the upcoming weeks.

  6. great bird! review and reflection are always good

Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer .

I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
