Going Live in 3…2…1…

Yep, it’s official, I own my own blog, have a .com address and it’s all MINE, MINE, MINE!  I set this goal July 5th, that I was going to move to WordPress, and get my own Self-Hosting site before the end of the summer!  According to the calendar the first day of Fall is September 22nd, so that means I finished with a few weeks to spare!  Yay me!!  My blog is still a work in progress, but wanted to get it all up and done for the Back To School, Back To Blogging event that starts on Sunday!  So my blog, is what it is for right now, there’s changes to be made, but 99% of it is done…so I’m going with it!

I have to do a HUGE shout-out to my new blogging BFF, Kristen at Ladybug Blessings!  This girl has gone ABOVE AND BEYOND the call of the blogging world, to help me get my site up and running!  I couldn’t do it without her!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you Kristen for all your help and continued help!!  I appreciate it so much!!  You’re the best!!  If you haven’t checked out Kristen’s blog before you really need to!  She is a super crafty girl and her blog showcases her work….oh and she’s a triplet too!  How cool is that??!!

Kristen just started a new meme that she’s trying to get off the ground Handmade Pact:

What is it? I often feel as if society is so focused on buying the newest & greatest and forget about the handmade gifts. There are so many things we could make ourselves that would have much more sentimental value than anything purchased at the store. Also there are so many etsy (and other) shops that have fabulous products we can buy that are as unique as the person getting the gift and the independent artists are the ones who benefit from those purchases.

I love seeing everyone’s linkys where great ideas are linked up but I know some people need tutorials in order to make something and I wanted to have the tutorials to show how to do things. The plan is in addition to the tutorial to have a linky set up each week where you can link your own tutorials you have previously done on your blog. They do not have to be from that day. But the only rule is you cannot post it again, as it will be in the archives for people to see.

I know I will be linking up with Kristen very soon!  I hope you check it out and do the same!

Thanks again for your continued friendship and for following my blog!  I hope you enjoy the new changes!  If you have an ideas to make it better, please let me know!  I’m knew at WordPress, so I am not very good at any of it yet, still learning!  So I’d take any and all ideas!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!
