Updates And Looking For Feedback

I need your feedback

As I said in my last post I wanted to work on updating some things with the blog, and that is what I have been doing.

I have managed to get the follow me buttons back up, but I had to go with a different support company for it. You should now be seeing those buttons floating on the bottom left of every page, and when you visit an article page for longer than 80 second, you should have a one time pop up asking you to follow me.

You might also notice that there is now an button for Instagram. That is right, I finally gave in and joined Instagram. I couldn’t help it, I did it for the Instagrannies. I saw a few articles on them lately and was drawn in. Who wouldn’t love a fashionista that looked like their granny? Seriously, though. Instagram will be mainly a way for you guys to see quick glimpses into my life, and my cats. Other than that, I don’t have a specific plan for Instagram, just random pictures that I take of my cats, places I travel, friends, OOTD, etc…

I will be doing a few post about this soon, but you will notice on the front page for now there is a button near the bottom that says Influenster Blogger. Essentially Influenster is a website like Trip Advisor, but for products. And companies work with Influenster to send out things for people to try, in what Influnster calls their VoxBox. I will explain more in a future article about it, but anyone can sign up. You do not have to have a blog or YouTube channel, though they do give you credit for it if you do. You only have to be active on social media to be chosen.

I did get a new email account up and running. I am hoping to get a PO box soon. This way hopefully communication will be able to go a little smoother.

In the next few days I will be adding a few new pages to the layout. I am also considering starting a YouTube channel. If I did, I would be mainly doing things like unboxings and occasional hauls and look books. Now this is where you guys come in.

I need your feedback

I really want to hear from you all. While this is technically my blog, I want it to be about all of us, and I want it to be enjoyable for you. Please let me know what you would like to see. Are you interested in a YouTube Channel? It would be a big step outside my comfort zone, but I am all for personal growth. What do I need to change?

Feeding My Obsession With Art Through The Tiny Hobo

79_i-love-art

Obsession may be a little strong of a word for what I feel for art, but I definitely have a real love for it as does my husband. In fact some of our first dates were of us double dating with my friend Jenny and her husband going to art shows. You could in some way say we fell in love over art, or perhaps through art. So I think its only natural that my love of art crossed over and encompasses some of the other things I love or feel passionate about.

So I thought I would take a moment and share one of my most recent art purchases with you. If you spend a lot of time on the internet, you may already be aware of her art, but you may not be. I recently made an order on Etsy from The Tiny Hobo.

For those of you who are not familiar, The Tiny Hobo makes art in the form of custom prints, postcard size prints, wearable buttons, and jewelry. Themes include being plus size, cats, pop culture, and geek references. Tiny Hobo, did you look into my soul and make art just for me?

When my order came in and I saw how cute the paper it was wrapped in was, I decided right then to grab the camera and snap some pictures of it all.

I love the cute pink and black polka dot paper it came wrapped in.

When I opened the paper there was a hand written note on the inside thanking me for the order. That was a really nice touch.

2015-06-01 17.59.19I got six postcard size print. Two of them were gifts for friends. I will be framing these soon. Look for pictures eventually on the my various social media accounts.

And being the crazy cat lady that I am, I had to get these. I already put these on my Torrid Denim Jacket that I just got. Hello 90’s I’m waving at you. I’m sure there will be plenty of pictures of these being sported once Fall hits.

 

Are there any other art lovers out there? Who is your favorite artist? Do they incorporate plus size women in their art?
