Happy Monday! How was everyone's weekend!?
I had the most amazing time at Alt Summit and shared some of my adventures through Facebook, twitter and Instagram (via 'houseofsmiths')...
but have LOTS more to tell all of you about the amazing speakers I heard and classes I attended! So much learned and so many great people met!... but that's for another post.
Today I just wanted to drop in quickly to see how everyone is doing with their January photoaday challenge!? As you can see from my photos above, I've been trying to stay pretty loyal to the challenge and it's definitely paying off. I already LOVE looking back at photos from the beginning of the month, and I'm so happy to report that I'm not stopping with January... Thanks to Fat Mum Slim I will be headed into February with a brand new creative list of topics to photograph, and I want you to come with me!!!
Even if you didn't participate in the January photoaday, think about starting in February! It is so personally rewarding to be able to thumb through memories from everyday events that happen in life! It really helps you appreciate the little things.
I'm also excited this week to share some more fun posts! As I mentioned before I'll have my Alt Summit round-up to chat about, as well as a post that has been a LONG time in the works. One of those "secrets" that I mentioned before, remember? :) Really, we've been working overtime on a few projects that ended up turning into bigger tasks then we ever thought they would.
Here's a little sneak peek!
Welcome to almost EVERY home improvement project here at The House of Smiths. ha!
Oh! And can we get a conversation started about this whole Picnik fiasco!?!? Have you heard? They are shutting down! Please don't judge me, but I actually got a lump in my throat when I heard the news!
It's really changed the whole way I edit and blog my photos. I'm so sad! I've read all the information and from what I understand, it sounds like to ME, that they are just moving their system over to Google+ (and maybe just renaming it?), so HOPEFULLY everything will stay remotely the same and we can still use their awesome, easy to navigate editing program (fingers DOUBLE crossed).
Does anyone else know more on this subject then I do? Please discuss...
Alrighty friends, I hope you have a great day and get everything accomplished that you've set out to do. Here's to an AWESOME week!
