Tuesday Question and Groundhog Day

Good Morning.....I hope this will find you in good Spirits!

Can hardly believe it, but here is February already. Today is Groundhog Day. And OH NO.....he saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter. Brrrrrrr! Personally I am so ready for Spring. Can't wait for the first flowers to pop their little heads through the dirt. Just can't wait....but waiting we must. As long as the sun shows up every day I will be ok, just hate them cloudy days. I really shouldn't be complaining. Living here in the south is certainly not as bad as living in some of them areas that were slammed by lots of snow and cold, cold weather. To me, Snow is only fun when you live in an area where you can enjoy this snow, to go sledding, skiing etc. Oh well, let's look on the bright side.....more cups of good Hot Chocolate or hot tea to keep us warm and snuggly in the evenings.

Here now to the Tuesday Question:

Since I am still pretty new to this blogging world, I have all these questions running around in my head. So what I would like to know is, how do you choose the blogs that you read on a daily basis? What characteristics do they need to have? Are you looking for just crafts? Or are you also interested in other everyday life stories?

When you write your own blog, how do you find the right words or do you just write without thinking about it much? What is your approach?

Personally I write my best work at night, while laying in bed, half asleep. Don't you think that is funny? I do. But than, when I sit in front of my computer in the morning, not one word wants to come out and jump onto the paper. ukkk, hate that. But what is a girl to do? I think some people are just born writers. And funny and entertaining too. What I would give for that. So, I guess in the meantime I just keep tuckering along and see what comes out.

On the crafting front, still not much has happened for me over the last month. I do a little bit here and a little bit there. I did finish my shawl. Sorry no pictures yet, as I need a model or just a warmer day outside, to take a good picture of it. So I beg your patients one more time.

Now I hope someone will please leave me my first comment. I would really love to hear all your opinions. Until than, have a wonderful day and a wonderful week. Bye for now!


  1. I go by what interests me first of all and also by what the site looks like..hugs Birgit

  2. Having just found your blog, I am reading every entry from the beginning and am enjoying it immensely. You have a lovely style of writing; open, engaging, friendly and knowledgeable - and you have a clarity and willingness to question and reach out to other like-minded souls. I especially like your tuesday questions, they make me think and question my existing opinions or thoughts on the crafting/blogging world. I'm looking forward to the next one!

    Generally with blogs, I like to feel I can get to know the person a bit and share the blogging part of their lives with them. I do like to see how projects are progressing or what inspires them such as music, books, places, colours:-) Especially colours!

    As for myself, I tend to write late afternoon/evening and although I try to be a regular blogger, it usually revolves around whether I have any photos of work to show or not. If I'm lacking any creative mojo then my blog suddenly shows a lot more eye candy - not that there is anything wrong in that:-)

    My own writing style is just me.I tend to be an open person generally so maybe I share too much with the world:-) but as long as I am sharing the good vibes and not the negative ones then that's cool. If I'm having a really bad day then I just don't blog!

    I also used to teach so sometimes I find I slip into teacher mode which I don't want at all! But I do try to link patterns or techniques to help anyone else out so they can learn by my mistakes - and I don't mind admitting when I manage to blow up the microwave:-)))

    Your structured week is a thoughtful approach and I think would help me get by the fallow workdays - I think I'll give it a try.

    Oh, and you may have noticed I do tend to ramble... Nothing like a short comment!
