Today's post is just a little house keeping post.
You're all plugging away, reorganizing your kitchens, getting ready for the big link up on Sunday, right?
I am too, and I'm also trying to come up with some great ideas for content for the blog while I'm at it. One recent helpful criticism, from my photographer friend, was to improve the quality of my photos, so I'm going to try to use Diesel's big scary DSLR to shoot my photos instead of my iPhone, as recently my iPhone has stopped taking nice clear photos (I'm pretty sure Apple programs their phones to crap out as soon as a new one comes out, because up until recently, my photos have been great!).
As I'm envisioning where I want The Cluttered House to go/be, I am thinking that while I love the organizing side of The Cluttered House, I'd like to incorporate into the blog otherfacets of my life, like my ridiculous parenting experiences, our attempts to try to be more frugal, my upcoming attempts to learn to be more homemaker-y, and how I don't have a green thumb at all, but plan to try to start suburban homesteading. Basically, I'll take a good humored look at my failures and successes as I try to reformulate my life (so think more posts in theAdventures in Pie Making style).
Any of that sound interesting to you? Would you want to read that kind of content, or do you come here just for the organizing side? I'm open to suggestions, constructive criticisms, and other feedback for improving the site, so let me know what you think in the comments, or send me an email.
-Katy Wolk-Stanley over at The Non-Consumer Advocate has started The Non-Consumer Advocate’s Last 10% Challenge, a program where in the next year we all try to finish those unfinished projects that are hanging around our lives. I am going to be mindfully tackling some of our 10% left project (Part of why I'm doing Organize-a-palooza is to tackle some of my 10%). I think you should check it/ The Non-Consumer Advocate out. Katy's approach to not consuming is AMAZING. I really need to get better at that.
-The only true season we have here in Southern California is citrus season. Between our recently pruned lemon tree, and our neighbor's mandarin tree, we have a bumper crop of citrus hanging around.
I have been pondering what to do with all my lemons (and wondering where on earth my juicer is), when Siri at Siriously Delicious posted this recipe for lemonade! YUM! I'm so on that!
And now back to my kitchen to organize away!
