In My Own Little Corner, In My Own Little Chair…

I can be whatever I want to be…
Well, once upon a time, I wanted to be a blogger. Not a make-my-living-by-blogging blogger, but a share-my-life-and-watch-the-kids-grow kind. A couple of weeks ago I took a trip back to the beginning of my first blog and enjoyed watching the nieces and nephews grow up, relived our cruise to Alaska, cried a little when I read my post the day my daughter moved away to North Dakota. That blog was designed to share about my family, but I’ve been hard-pressed to blog much when I can share with extended family and friends on Facebook.
So, I’m starting a new blog, one that will focus on homemaking, crafting, gardening, cooking, and random life-on-the-prairie things. Things that are easier shared with my friends here than on Facebook.
I’m excited to share the day-to-day fun I have here in my own little corner of the prairie. To start off, I thought I’d join in the 31 Days series from The Nester.
  I’ve chosen a theme and will put up a post each of the 31 days of October. The theme is “31 Days to Happily Ever After – a semi-DIY wedding”.
Now, there are tons of wedding planning sites on the interwebs, and I do not intend to rehash all that they provide. My posts will be about what we are doing to plan my daughter’s semi-DIY rustic-elegance wedding.  The date is fast approaching (October 20!), and I still have a to-do list that is starting to keep me awake at night, so who has the time to blog? I’m going to make time because she has chosen such neat ways to personalize her wedding that I really want to share!
31 Days starts tomorrow, and I’ll delve into one of the first things I did when her wedding planning began – cutting up my own wedding dress. Yikes! I hope you’ll come along for the ride.


  1. WooHoo! I get to be the very first comment on your new blog! I will look forward to journeying with you as always Tammy. We share a love of home, gardening and crafting.

    Hugs from Holland ~

    P.S. - Love the profile photo of you and your sweet little Bradley.

  2. Good! I've missed you blogging. Now please put a Followers button on so I can be a follower...

  3. I'll be along! With our children and now our grands all about the same ages, I feel like we are kind of living parallel lives in 2 different states.
    Can't wait to see all the pretty touches are you are doing that will make this wedding as special as it ought to be.

  4. My daughter is getting married in February, so I'll definitely be watching your posts this month - thanks for sharing!


Thanks for sharing!
