Blogging for Bliss


Kari from Artsy Mama is hosting a book release party Tara Frey's book Blogging for Bliss.
I just celebrated my 1 year blogiversary a few weeks ago and have a giveaway currently underway.

Blogging is blissful to me because it reminds me to keep going with my work. I can take a moment of my day to record what I've been doing. It makes me stop and notice the beauty in day to day things that would normally go unnoticed, stop and take a photograph of them or just 'smell the roses'.
When I started, I knew I wanted a sort of journal to help me connect to other crafters with like minds and interests : ) and since I am not very good at keeping paper journals or diaries having a place out in the open world where people were going to stop by and look, forces me to record the things I'm doing in my creative life in some way.

Have a Happy Creative Day!

Hi Andrea,

First off, thanks for leaving a message on my blog and I am very inspired about Blogging for Bliss--I think I'm going to write about that this week.
