After thinking about this for a looooooooooong time, I think I'm just going to merge BlogSmith over here to ArtSmith. When I first started ArtSmith I had already been blogging on BlogSmith for a long time, and I wanted to have a seperate place for the art/craft stuff that I do. However, I then would have to decide to leave some things off of ArtSmith so there would be something on BlogSmith, and leave some things off of BlogSmith (that I did want everyone to see)to have stuff on ArtSmith...blah, blah, blah.... And I just want everybody to see everything! Like the good High-Egoed-Port Arthur, TX Brand of Smith I am. lol!
So now this will be more of a daily life type blog, along with the arts and crafts and the occasional "Soap Box" post that may or may not reflect the opinions of Blogger.com, the public in general, or even you. My opinion just has a way of making itself known on certain topics. lol! Like this one, for instance:
I just don't think my brother is right raising Groban, the only nephew I have to smoke.
And if your opinion differs from mine, that is fine with me, and even feel free to leave a comment. You may know something about it that I don't and could even teach me a thing or two. My motto is: Learn something new every day. I truly try to live that way, even if my only option that day is to just go to the dictionary, open up to a random page, and learn a new word or two. I love discussions but...BE POLITE and respect others opinions also. *Not that I want this to turn into a total discussion board!*
The upside to all of this is that it may be more entertaining, just because of the things my kids say and do. I think they are pretty funny and they crack me up every day. I like to post some of the funnier things they say. (Is 'funnier' even a real word???)
Just so you all know: Today was the very first day of "summer". Yesterday was the last day of school. We are all home together now. Theme for the summer: Survival of the fittist, and I'm not afraid to throw elbows! lol!
I'm just warning you because I really, truly, love my kids more than anything else, but...I have a very sarcastic sense of humor so please don't be offended!
I guess BlogSmith will still be hanging out over there, though. So, if you are looking for some reading material that might make you laugh, head over there and look for posts titled "Conversations with Claire" or "Conversations with Ethan". I know there are a lot of Claire's, because she was at home with me when I started blogging, and she says a lot of funny things.
ANYWAY...I hope the new format works for everyone, and I SWEAR, ONE OF THESE DAYS, I am going to learn how to customize my header with my own 'thing'!!! I'm tired of the standard look! But, tonight I think I'm going to take it easy. Sit back, surf the crafty net, and look for inspiration for new projects. Because why would I want to finish up the dozen projects I'm in the middle of right now???
