31 days of common magic

September 30, 2013

common magic

I’m trying something new for October, and, with a trip in to San Francisco right in the middle, this is going to be challenging, but it sill seems like a fun try. This challenge is being hosted by The Nester. The basic idea is to pick a topic and write a post/day about that topic. Since I’m all over the place, doing all sorts of things, the only cohesive thing I could think of is capturing the common magic of everyday. Also, I’m fitting myself into the “Too Awesome to Categorise” category.

Now you know me, I’m about the most obstinate person when it comes to keeping within the lines and I don’t follow rules too well either, (although I usually have the best intentions), and usually just jump in thinking, “how hard can this be?”, so we’ll see how I do. 🙂

Taking a deep breath and jumping right in.

    I’ll be interested in what you post, too.
    Any chance you will start putting your posts on Google+ ?
    I saw you are on there and I’m now one of your Followers 🙂
    It’s easy to read all the posts from people I follow in just one place.
    Good luck on this challenge; I like your title/theme.
    Good choice.

      Hi Deborah, I’ll go adjust my settings to try to publish to google+. Thank you so much for following and taking an interest in what I have to say. I like catching up with you on Fridays and especially like seeing your art journal pages. 🙂
