31 Days of HOLIDAY

When my sister-in-law asked me if I wanted to participate in the 31 Days with The Nester challenge my immediate response was to laugh.  How could I possibly add another thing to my already busy day? Once I started to think about it, I became more curious and decided to check out what all of you who have participated in years past had written about.  Then I got sucked in. So many creative people out there, so many amazing topics worthy of discussion.

Then my ideas started to flow. What if I participated in the 31 Days Challenge and discussed a topic that I was really passionate about? What if it didn't become a chore but more of a love? These were all things that I had running through my mind with considering participating. I wanted to make sure that I was fully invested and making it worthwhile for both me and my readers. That being said, I have decided to participate! For me, I think the biggest challenge a writer/crafter is to fully commit myself in a topic that I love. I'm hoping that you will come along and participate in this journey with me, or even participate yourself!

So, I plan to be here a little more in the coming weeks and I'm excited!  It feels good to shake things up a little bit on my end, and have a goal of doing something that will keep those creative juices following.  I'm happy to be participating and I would encourage you to do the same!  Each week will look something like this:  I will share one of my own holiday decorating projects, crafts, tips, gift ideas or recipes.  The plan is to focus on Halloween for the first ten days, followed by Harvest Time/Thanksgiving and then of course Christmas! I hope you will enjoy this series and visit often!  You can also subscribe to my blog via email to get notified of new posts and follow on Twitter where **the plan** is to also post when I've got something new up!
