Taking A BIG Creative Leap

I have some new tools in my blogging toolbox this week and I am having a fantastic time working with them. All my study is really inspiring me but it's also the reason I have not been sleeping enough, have a very unhappy back & eyes and am feeling a little like a caged animal. Haa-haa. Balance, must remember balance.

I created this fun collage using Picnik. It's a small investment ($24/yr) for a lot of fun new features. I'm looking forward to making some collages of family photos and lots of my creative projects too. You'll be seeing a lot more collages in the coming weeks.

I also purchased PhotoShop Elements, which I didn't even know existed until a couple of weeks ago. Makes sense that there would be a "light" version of PhotoShop available, right?! It's less than $100 and there is currently a $20 mail-in rebate. I am so excited to take kalanicut to a new level visually. Visual appeal is so important for a great blog and I want this to be a great blog.

 I am learning so much in the Blogging Your Way class I am taking from Holly Becker of Decor8 and Leslie Shewring of A Creative Mint. They are both incredibly inspiring, intelligent and creative women and it's amazing the effect their blogs are having in the blog world.

I feel so blessed and honored to be studying with them and am blown away by all I'm learning and the amazing list of things I have learned to make this blog so much more than it is today. The other fantastic benefit has been building a fantastic web of blogger friends all over the world. Hi BYW friends! Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments.

Thanks to this class I am also percolating an idea for a new blog that I think could have fantastic inspirational impact on readers and be a great, much more narrow niche for me. There's room for an opportunity there. Planning is in the works.
