Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love! A day to celebrate your spouse, a friend, your children. Sometimes our budgets don’t allow us to celebrate in big fancy ways! There’s times that you need to watch money! I’m sharing some fun ways to go out on a Valentine date without breaking the bank.
Are you a new blogger? What about a veteran blogger? Are there some things you still have trouble with in your blogging? Solidarity Sisters is a great way to learn more about blogging from those of us who understand! It also helps you grow relationships with other women bloggers.
I know that when I started blogging I didn’t know about SEO, WordPress, self hosting, etc. I knew that I was blogging and no one probably even read it!
I found an awesome group on Facebook of women bloggers. Most of them are Christian bloggers, but they are all women that want to grow in their relationships with others.
Every two months we join up with a partner to develop community, to foster an encouraging support network, to grow in our relationships with others, and to grow their blogging skills.
We are the Solidarity Sisters.
Solid in their faith.
Solid in their desire to use their creative gifts and share them with the world.
You don’t have to be a Christian blogger to join us though. The challenges are not related to religion at all! I’d love for you to join us and get to know another blogger and grow your blog at the same time you are helping someone else grow!
Sign ups are closed right now.
There’s a Facebook group for Solidarity Sisters where we can get to know each other and just in case you aren’t seeing the newsletters you will be able to see them on the Facebook group.
Sign up for the Solidarity Sisters newsletter! This is how I will send the challenges to you every two weeks. I’m also going to be putting together a couple of mini challenges throughout the main challenge.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We make memories every day. These memories can be something as simple as going for a walk or something more major like going on a family vacation. It doesn’t matter what the memory is as long as you are with people you love.
A couple of years ago I made a memory jar. I wrote down things that had happened and put it in the jar. At the end of the year we had so many memories of the past year. It was fun to read them and remember the things that happened.
If you want to make your own memory jar then here’s what you need:
Paint the top part of the jar. Let it dry.
Cut the scrapbook paper to fit the bottom part of your jar.
Using the foam brush apply the modge podge to the jar in a thin layer. I usually do two to three coats.
Wrap the scrapbook paper around the jar and using the modge podge seal the end to the jar.
The modge podge will dry clear so if there’s any that comes out from under the paper don’t worry about it.
Next trace the jar lid onto a piece of scrapbook paper and cut it out.
Apply modge podge to the lid and then add the scrapbook paper to it.
I added some washi tape to the sides of my memory jar.
Use the stickers to write what your jar is for.
Making a memory jar is so easy and can be used for many years to come! You can keep your memories from the year or just from special occasions. It is really up to you!
What’s your favorite memory from 2016?

The new round of Solidarity Sisters will start in February. There’s a Facebook group for Solidarity Sisters where we can get to know each other and just in case you aren’t seeing the newsletters I’ll be sending you will be able to see them on the Facebook group.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28)
Making a difference has always been important to me. I try to give back as much as I can but sometimes it doesn’t happen. Throughout 2017, I’m sharing some charities and causes that are important to me and others as we try to bring some purpose into life.
When I was thinking about my word for 2017 I knew I wanted to make a difference this year.
Where has the year gone? It seems like yesterday that we were ringing in 2016! As the new year draws near I’m looking back on all the changes that have happened this year. So here’s 2016 in review.
My grandma was famous for her cut cookies. She had a huge cookie cutter collection that were hanging on the wall above her cabinets. There was every shape you could want! My favorites were always the Christmas ones because they were the ones that I have the most memories of.
