To celebrate the 6th anniversary of Earthtones Girl I’ve been doing a bit of late spring cleaning and general house keeping. But let’s start with a definition.
committment, according to Webster’s means:
c : the state or an instance of being obligated or emotionally impelled <a commitment to a cause>
I’m not saying never but rarely have I felt obligated or emotionally impelled to maintain this blog but I am committed to it. It has honestly been a pleasure, a joy and downright fun!! First and foremost this forum has given me a place to be express myself and my love of creating. I’m so grateful for that and all the people who’ve shared time with me over the past six years. The actual anniversary was 12 days ago (I’m a little late but that doesn’t matter).
As you may have noticed I’ve been a bit busy around here. For more than year now I’ve wanted to change the overall look of my blog but I decided to listen to the wise advice of a friend and reader who quoted the old stand by…”If it ain’t broke…” So I’m sticking with my current format but with some changes. Here’s the run down,
1. New Header
It was time for something a bit brighter but still showcased both my passions.
2. The KNITS and QUILTS pages have been updated…finally.
3. All the pictures on the blog are now bigger!!! Bigger pics, more eye candy!
4. A new page has been added, MUG RUGS, etc…
Not quite quilts but I still wanted find a place to “show” them.
5. Blog roll/Links has been edited
Some oldies have been removed and some new favs have been added. Stay tuned there’s may more to come.
6. And my favorite new feature…PIN OF THE DAY
I’m so excited about this one. It’s a quicker way for me to get my favorite pins, new discoveries, tutorials, recipes, etc to you instead of my once weekly BLT posts. It’ also a way for me to keep those of you not on Facebook up to date with things I post there but not in detail here.
Regarding today’s POTD, I’m actually making one for a friend. I wanted a cute way to give a gift card and I FOUND IT!!!
It’s also good practice for hand sewing, which I’ve wanted to work on for a long time.
These changes, few though they may be, have re-energized me! There are so many wonderful things I’ve yet to share with you!! I hope you continue “journeying” me as I plan to do with all of you.
