New Blogs - Come on over!

Okay all you faithful friends and followers, I've got two new blogs up and rolling! First is my public blog, Thread, Brush and Vase. I'll be using it for all the stuff I'm interested in: interior decorating, sewing projects, modest style, flowers and greenery in the home, stuff like that. I may do a little life/parenting stuff or share an encouraging thought from my Bible studies from time to time as well.

The other is a private blog, Real Family Adventures. That's just for the kid's stuff and pictures. If you'd like to follow that one as well, just send me an e-mail and I'll add you to the allowed list. If I don't know you personally/you don't have my personal e-mail, then send an e-mail with the subject line "ATTN FAMILY BLOG" and a link to your blog, xanga or website to mikepizza2002 at yahoo dot com. It's a junk e-mail address, but I'll be checking it over the next few months. Once I've checked you out to be sure you're not a creepy internet person, I'll add you to the allowed list as well. I know there are some sweet folks out there who like our little adventures, and I'd be happy to have you along. :-)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the new blogs - see you over there! - Gretchen

Changes on the way!

Yes folks, it's time for a change. Several, in fact.

I've been tossing around the idea of starting a new blog for a while. But I've been back and forth about whether I should make it public (which I like for my posts) or private (because of the kiddos). So, as you can see, I haven't done anything.

But now we have some big life changes in the air, (more on that soon!) and the time has come for something new. I've decided to split into two blogs - a public one for my hobbies and projects, and a private one for family stuff. I think I've settled onto a concept for the public one, but I'm still working on a name for the private one. Any ideas?

Anyway, if you're still checking in on me here, stay tuned! There are some big changes coming soon, and I think you're going to like them!

We're still alive here (very alive), and it still won't let me load pictures! Still trying . . .
