making everyday beautiful

I love that the New year always brings a sense of optimism and opportunity with it. It gives you courage for a fresh start and a 'can do' attitude to make changes in your life or your work. I love change. I thrive on it.

That's why I have decided to make a few changes around here, if you've been a long time visitor here you'll know I can never keep things looking the same for very long before I'm itching to do a wee makeover. I love that my blog can be organic and can grow and change with me, not just visually but with the content too.

The boldest (I say bold because it concerns a much loved regular feature) change I am making with the content is to bring to a close my old Flickr groups, including 'all colours in' which means... *large intake of breath* ...that there will be no more 'colour your monday happy' posts! There I said it...

But hold on a minute, before you come after me with flaming torches and pitchforks... I am replacing them with something just as beautiful that I know you will love just as much! Introducing 'making everyday beautiful...'

After realising that managing three groups on Flickr was becoming far too time consuming and that generally all three groups included the same images, I decided it was time to start afresh. So I have considered those old groups very carefully to pinpoint the key elements that have made them so successful and use those elements in this fabulous new group.

Throughout all the amazing submissions to these groups it was abundantly clear that everyone involved takes huge joy in their art and craft. From knitting and crochet to photography and styling, each and every submission celebrates the beauty we find and create for ourselves on a daily basis. Whether you're a hobbyist or professional, you all seem to have the same wonderful goal in mind and that is to make everyday beautiful in one way or another.

So I would like to welcome you all to share and participate in what I hope will be the most wonderfully creative community where everyone is committed to making everyday beautiful... :)

  3. I also just joined! (and in one fell swoop, just figured out flickr, uploaded my first ever photo, and - apologies if I did it wrong! - submitted it to the group).

    Emma - I think this is a lovely idea, a combination of the best of all worlds, streamlined perfectly. But then, everything you put out there is absolutely gorgeous - thank you so much!
