To share, to connect, to create, to inspire...

As with any blog, they take a good amount of time to develop and then establish, including gaining readers and followers to it. 

This blog so happens to be my second one - the first commenced back in 2007 and ended less than a couple of years ago. However, the odd post is still written for the purpose to update any regular readers it gained and of course continuing to be a type of written album for my family to look back on.

The blog topic was not of a craft type, with a business element like this one. Its purpose regards education - to elaborate, it is based on home education. So, like I said a completely different blog to this one. It charted all things daily in the lives of my daughter and I, as a home educating family - from days out to days in, from weekends away to weekends working an allotment. From books, clubs, cinema trips, museums to Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and birthdays. From milestones, achievements, successes to what wasn't working and of course some tears and …

Dealing with bereavement

This post is both a sad one with the loss of my Grandfather yet brings a time of reflection and memories over the past 46 years! This family death was followed by an idea to create props to accompany a children's book on grief and loss of a loved one.

After some light research, I think I have found the one I wish to explore further, with props already in mind. I do have to order the book for a fuller look as I am unable to access it online. 

Any feedback on the actual story would be greatly received - the reviews I have read thus far have been positive and heartwarming.



Adsense

After mulling over whether to apply Adsense to this crafty blog, my decision was to go with it. The adverts look great and change so not static at all - they range from craft sites such as, 'Love Knitting' to household goods sites and for those personal needs sites such as, 'Direct Line' for insurance, footwear from 'Birkenstock' and all things pamper time such as, The Body Shop.

So, familiar sites we know, love, want and need - the adverts will be placed amongst the posts and on the sidebar - feel free to pop by to check out any special offers, freebies, discounts, quotes, new collections and so forth. I will gain revenue too for page views and any clicks made on the adverts. So, y'all will be helping me to earn a wee extra pocket money from time to time.

Don't forget to check out behind the crafty door book props too! Posts that update, exhibit props, displays offers and discounts and connects with our sister site behind the crafty door. All page links …
