News and Notes :: Loads of things!

I am going to have a two post day today, so don’t worry, this isn’t all that there is today here on Craft Leftovers. I just wanted to post some updates. It’s been a long time since I put out a newsletter and I finally sent one out yesterday. I have decided to make sure to send one out every first Monday of the month from now on.

I also decided to set up a semi regular posting schedule, which I will stick to most of the time. But if something awesome comes up that is time sensitive, I’ll post about that instead. Anyway here it is:

DSC_0059 Patterns and project tutorials are posted most weeks on Fridays. Project techniques include: sewing, knitting, crochet, and sometimes other things too!

DSC_0107 The Apartment Redress project on Tuesdays. Most Tuesdays I focus on projects I’m working on for the apartment – from refinishing a dresser to making new curtains for the studio. Fun things you can do on hand to make your creative space and home a bit more creative.

cookies01 Thursdays in the Thrift Kitchen. I’ve always felt that the Thrift Kitchen project was in the same vein as Craft Leftovers – the same thing only applying it to the kitchen. Each Thursday, I’ll take a look in my cupboard and see what I can come up with – then share it with you! Come join me in the kitchen the day before grocery day!

DSC_0022 Monday and Wednesdays are random fun days – interviews, guest posts, what’s going on in crafterdom, what I’ve been reading and what inspires me. Sometimes

I think that this will help me out a lot. Kind of give me a focus throughout the week. And it varies a lot and builds on what I’m already doing on a daily basis + gives me some wiggle room on Monday and Wednesday to do whatever I feel like.

I’m hoping to start doing more than one post a day, maybe just a “this is what I saw in my blog role this morning that inspired me” to start. Maybe full on double posts with original content. Not sure yet. I’ll start small. I just want to consistantly post 5 days a week, then work up to more posts per day over the next few months.

So that is that. The other thing, going back to the newsletter, is that I updated the archive completely and realized I had a lot of new things! Here is the list:
