I’ve been getting all dirty working hard on CITR!
I’ve made a couple of minor changes here and want to give you a quick run-down in case you’re wondering where anything is! Nothing’s gone anywhere, but you may notice there is a new House & Garden section. The new House & Garden section is a consolidation of my formerly separate Crafts and Garden sections. I decided to streamline these sections into one for a few reasons. One being that I hardly ever garden in the winter. But mostly because sometimes I have agonizing (seriously! agonizing!) trouble deciding where to put a post. If I walk into the woods and make a wintry bouquet–is that a Craft post or a Garden post? If I spray paint a coffee can to make a coffee can flower pot–is that a Craft post or a Garden post? And then! Oh yes, then. What if I talk about renovating the downstairs or decluttering? That’s not even a craft at all! (And it’s certainly not gardening.) And so I had a lightbulb moment and determined I would be much less agonized if I made a House & Garden section because that sounds so all-encompassing of both crafts and the home plus I don’t ever have to decide if something is a craft project or a gardening project. Whew. I feel so much better now!
In other news! I have also added a sub-menu to the CITR header to help you find things more easily. I have been listening to you and what you are looking for. I don’t want you to be frustrated! I know how that feels! (See above angst re the Crafts and Garden sections.) From the new sub-menu, you can easily find:
Events and the CITR Retreat 2011 information. You can also find out about Farm Stays, Day Workshops, and the Party on the Farm from the main Events page. (Yes, I have determined that what I want to do are farm stays, not a bed & breakfast. From a regulations standpoint, this is much simpler, and it’s also what I had in mind. I don’t want to be “open” for a B&B 365 days a year. Farm stays, yes!)
Prints. This button will take you to my Smugmug site where you can check out my available prints and free desktop wallpaper.
Sponsor. Find out all the ways you can sponsor CITR, if you are so inclined. Take out an ad in the monthly newsletter, sponsor a Ball Blue Book, or sponsor door prizes or swag bag goodies for the CITR Retreat 2011. Get the details here.
Interjecting note: The CITR Retreat 2011 is already halfway filled (in one week!). If you are thinking about coming to the retreat, don’t miss your chance at a spot! Space is limited and we will not be able to add more spots, so once they are filled, they are filled. Register for the retreat here. We can’t wait to see you and we’re going to have so much fun!
