How are you at organizing? It is not something I am awesome at, I will confess.
I can usually find about a bazillion things I would rather be doing – which often results in a not-so-tidy house. Boom. Now you know my big secret. ;)
So since it is up there on my list of Things I Would Rather Not Do – I am always looking for fun organizing ideas, as well as ways to clean up quickly.
Even better – I love when someone comes over (usually my sister) and directs my sad organizing attempts. I don’t mind doing the work, but I’m often overwhelmed with where to start. Please tell me I’m not the only one like that! :)
A couple of years ago she helped my organize my wee craft closet.
I am so excited to have one of my blog goals for the year accomplished already!
As the blog has grown over the last year or so, I have realized that I need to put together a Media Kit.
If you’re not familiar with a Media Kit, it’s basically a PDF “About Me” page, with information about the blogger and the blog, stats, any press or other putblications pricing for promotional posts/etc, etc; all in a handy dandy format that is eye catching. This PDF can be printed or emailed to give to companies that you are interested in partnering with. It’s a great way to present a professional proposal about your blog.
And for one reason or another, I kept putting it off.
But my good friend Andrea from The Train to Crazy and Go To Patterns stepped in and saved the day. She just started up a Media Kit and Graphic Design company called Go To Design!
One of my goals this year is to share a little more about us as a family with you - I feel like it makes things a little more personal – so you can get to know the “me” behind the blog.
Things we do, activities, background, you know - life!
One of the things that is important to us as a family is attending and serving at our church.
It’s been a huge part of our family since Doug and I were kids - we even met in our high school church youth group! (Everybody say awwwww) :)
We had always been involved at church but when our kids were little we knew we wanted to be involved with them – and be involved with where they were.
So we dived in and started serving with the Children’s Ministry at our church!
