You might have noticed a couple of
changes in the blog layout lately.
I've been trying to tidy it all up a bit.
There are new buttons for different parts of the blog:
You've had some questions about how to subscribe (sorry that was a pain). But the new button is my attempt at solving the problem. Feedburner & Feedblitz still feel so maze-like to my noodle, but I hope it works for you. If not, please let me know.
Interested in email updates? You can just click the subscribe cloud button & it will take you to a form for FeedBlitz that looks like this:
Just enter your email (where you see my old one "firstname.lastname@example.org") and prove your not a robot then you'll get an email asking you to confirm. Be sure to add the address to your contacts, if you don't want the spam folder to eat up your updates. ;O)
Then, full updates of the posts will be delivered to your inbox when they are up on the blog & you can click through if you want to visit me..........
please use the little box to the right-hand side
in the sidebar, on my blog, under the "subscribe" header
to add your email.II....
You can take your pick of services (Readers etc)
(also in sidebar to the right there, on my blog).

You can still find them, but they're on the bottom. Sorry for the scrolling, but they were getting dated (and felt cluttered).
What: It's basically an online inspiration board slash filing cabinet. People save their favourite visuals from around the web by "pinning" them onto boards. It's sheer delight (though to be honest it is addictive & a bit of a time-suck).
Why: It's a visual smorgasbord. You can just browse & drool.
And if you used to like the link lists I made of crafts grouped by type, you might be a fan of Pinterest. My link lists are now visual ones. If you like making your own link lists or roundup posts, you'll love it, since it's SO much easier (no saving photos, uploading, or copying URLs...) :o)
which became my Pinterest
DIY flower craft & inspiration board:

How: To follow links on there, I believe you have to join the site, but it's free and very user friendly.
Oddly enough, it's really changed the way I do things daily: I've found better food & drink ideas, gardening, and am feeling like my craft-style has been recharged. (Can't wait to show you some of the things I've been working on based on inspiration from there! That teensy weensy letter at the top of this post is one of 'em).
Anywho, hope the changes are okay.
If you can think of anything you'd like to see,
