Today’s challenge is to create a tutorial blog post.
Luckily, I have a little video that I filmed two years on how to create beaded serve ware. I did not have an HD camera at the time, so I had to use my Iphone and balance it on a box! Every time I bumped the table the phone jiggled and made the video a bit wobbly!
I invited my mom and sisters over for a girls crafting night. What a blast it was to create some pieces of flatware and see how each person created something so different. I had purchased some beads but the best pieces came from old jewelry that had broken and were recreated into masterpieces. I love crafting but am not super talented at crafting. However, it is a fun reason to get some friends together and have some laughs and good times together and use our creative genes.
I just had another girls crafting night last weekend and I think we talked, laughed, ate cake made from scratch (Darla the cake was amazing), and drank a little wine more than we crafted. In other words, we had a great time socializing! My niece Tiffany, brought all the makings for vinyl lettering for wall hangings and glass etching. Thanks to Tiffany’s patients we all had a chance to create one piece. Thanks Tiff, for all your hard work and getting all the supplies and transporting them to my house.
The tutorial video will be coming soon.

Today Alex Beadon is challenging us to dig deep and explore the reasons why we are blogging. What is our passion and what is our story. I ventured outdoors in the wind and rain for some inspiration!
Everybody has a story and my blogging story starts with a transition in life. It is a time where I was reevaluating my purpose in life and what my new “job” would be as an empty-nester. I thought my transition from mom to Karen would be easy. As time would tell, it is not so easy.
I had to evaluate what I thought were my strengths: being a mom, having fun, being creative, meeting and empowering new friends, and helping others feel beautiful. Put this all together and I came up with creating a video blog and web show for women. I am hoping to empower women to feel more beautiful and share our favorites! And to have lots of fun along the way!
