December 20, 2012

I've been scrolling Pinterest as I normally do nightly and it occurred to me how much inspiration I collect from that resource. It's not the simple DIY things or the recipes but the photography and collection of pieces truly make me want to create. It gets my mind going with adapting different things around me in my life to be more uplifting and powerful. It encourages me to be surrounded in beauty and to find beauty in every situation. 

I've been contemplating taking my blog to a new level. I've wanted to build my own inspiration board for a design and have a set goal for 2013. Since I've had the resources of Pinterest and other blogs around me I think I've found where I want to go. I want to be a place people go to for inspiration. A place where the content is hearty and the words aren't just text. It's a story that brightens a day, a picture that makes someone smile. A tutorial that gives someone hope they might actually have a crafty bone somewhere in their body. And advice that I've only learned by living life to the fullest.

So you, being my faithful readers and friends over this journey, what do you want to see? What are things that spike your interest and keep you coming back for more? What tutorials get your mind excited and what life lessons do you need encouragement with? 

I'm excited for the next season for this baby blog. I'm even more excited to be sharing it with you.
Cheers, my friends. 2013 is promising big things in the blogging world.

  4. The blog is wonderful! After reading your About Me, we will get along just fine. I look forward to the new year with you as a new follower :)


  5. Your positivity is inspiration enough, I love reading what bloggers have been doing for other people, I like the stories where bloggers have made surprise gifts or volunteered to do something worthwhile, it's like reading good news, where you get to see that there are plenty of truly decent people in the world.

    Keep being positive! Athalia xx

  6. Your blog design is gorgeous!! I love it!

  7. I think what inspires me most isn't the tutorials, the pretty pictures, or the crafts... I just like reading personal stories, good writing, and connecting with others on that level.

  8. Good for you! Looks like a great goal for the new year :)

  9. I almost didn't decide to click on a button to your blog. . . because I was in a rush. But holy talito, I'm so extremely glad I did. Like Kelsey said, your blog design is seriously GORGEOUS! I love it so much. Quotes inspire me, actually. Along with a lot of people, I'm sure. And I really love to relate to personal stories. It makes you that much more REAL.

    Have a fabulous Christmas!

  10. I am in a search for inspiring sites or media right now and I love that I have Pinterest to gain inspiration. The photos and DIY projects make me imagine just how much fun it will be to actually have the talent for those projects. :)

    I found your blog from the giveaway over at Lipgloss and Crayons. I am a new follower. :)
