HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lemon and Raspberry Blog

Hey friends,

I wanted to share with you that I had the chance to do a guest post yesterday on Lemon and Raspberry’s New Year’s Day Blog Party!  What a fun way to start 2013 and so much available in one day.

Amy always provides lots of information and motivation for all kinds of business and personal projects throughout the year and this is the way she kicks it off.

You’ll find tips and inspiration about Memory Keeping, Blogging, Photography, Travel, Marketing and just general creativity and productivity.  She also provides creative prompts for journaling the details of your life.

My post is called Memory Keeping with a Purpose. If you have a few minutes stop by and say hi to Amy, check it out and tell her that I sent you. She’s running a free mini online workshop and several giveaways as part of the New Year’s Blog Party, so sign up to participate or for a chance to win one of the prizes.

For those of you who are scrappers I thought I’d pass along this info about a new eBook that my daughter, Amy contributed to.  It’s all about ideas for a scrapbooking/memory keeping system called Project Life.

Here’s a link to more info about Project Life.

And here’s a link to the new eBook that was just released.  It’s called Project Dig Deep. Amy’s offering a discount, as well as a drawing for a free copy of the eBook.  But hurry, it won’t last long.

I am such a proud mom!  We recently learned that our daughter, Amy T. Schubert (don’t you just love that smile) and her blog “Lemon and Raspberry” was mentioned in this article below that showcases just 16 favorite blogs and websites that are worth a visit by writers.

The magazine that this came from is none other than “The Writer“, which is also celebrating 125 years of publishing – WOW!  It’s in their March 2012 issue and available at your favorite magazine stand or bookstore.  We picked ours up at Barnes and Noble.

The first image is page 1 of the article.  After you click on the image, you should be able to zoom in by clicking again if it’s not large enough to read yet.

The second image below (click to enlarge) is Page 2 of the article.  In the right column, contributing editor Stephanie Dickison mentions Lemon and Raspberry as one of her top 3 websites.  Awesome!  I love this, especially since her blog doesn’t really focus on writing, but many other facets of the creative process.  Way to go Teegan!  I just LOVE having creative kids.

We interrupt our regular posting series to announce that our daughter, Amy is presenting a new online workshop!

You can check out all the details here!

She also posted some pics from our recent visit with them and our trip to LaJolla.  You can find those here.

My pics are coming soon, I promise.  You’re gonna love the cute seal pictures and I have some good ones of Amy and Andrew too.

We have commitments tonight and tomorrow night, but I should get some more out over the weekend.

By the way, what’s your favorite day to read new blog posts?  I’m always hesitant to do new posts on the weekend because everyone is out and about and I’m afraid that they’ll get lost in the shuffle.  I’d love to target the best days for you, so let me know what they are.

Thanks for reading!  Hope you’re having an awesome summer!

If you follow Lemon and Raspberry – my daughter Amy’s blog you may have seen that she was featured on a couple of other blogs earlier this week, so just for fun I’m linking to a bunch of posts that I’ve done that mention her in case there are visitors that want to know more about this creative gal.

Here’s the link to more about Amy.

And here’s a fun photo of her with her drawing pad in Mammoth, California.  Yes, she was creative from the beginning.  Just one of the things that I love about her.

Are you like me and hate to throw away all those beautifully designed Christmas cards?  I always hold on to them thinking that there must be some way that I can re-purpose or recycle them.  Well here’s a fun and easy idea that can be used each year and is easy enough for youngsters to do it as well.

And the instructions are so easy!

Select a palette of coordinating hues to create a whimsical wreath. Cut greeting cards into different-size circles (or other fun shapes). Arrange the circles into a wreath shape, overlapping as desired. Secure with crafts glue. Machine-stitch over the top using coordinating or contrasting thread. Attach a ribbon to the wreath with a colored paper clip and hang.

In looking at this project, it might make it easier to cut out a donut shape as a base out of cardboard.  And if you don’t have enough coordinating colors in your greeting cards this year you can always keep the circles from one year to the next until you have what you need to make your wreath.

You could also cut up your Christmas or other card fronts to use as embellishments on your scrapbooking or other craft projects as well.

I found the idea along with many other great craft and organizing ideas at the Better Homes and Gardens website.  I love browsing through all their wonderful tips, and craft suggestions.  Sign up to get their emails and you won’t miss another helpful hint.

Or…here’s another idea!  How about using those greeting card circles to make a garland like Amy did here on Lemon and Raspberry?

If you’re looking for a plethora of tips on creating a better blog visit Lemon & Raspberry, which happens to be my daughter, Amy’s blog (full disclosure).  She’s been posting tips all week long and has done a ton of leg work to bring all this great information together in one place.  It will take me a long time to get through it all, but I’m looking forward to reading and applying it to my own blog.  Good thing is that the information will be there to refer back to or you can buy the content in a workbook format with bonus info here.

I hope you get a chance to check it out.
