It’s time to change things up again because change is good…sometimes anyway. I was wandering around over at my new friend’s website yesterday: The Pioneer Woman. You really should check it out…she’s a hoot! She had ten rules of blogging listed and they were great rules. I read every one. Many I had already discovered from two years of blogging but one stood out to me and I realized why blogging has become more of a chore for me and less of something that I love and look forward to everyday. I have forced myself into a box. I have set up too many fixed features and have quit letting the words flow from the heart. I have been lost…but now I am found. No more Favorites of the Week on Mondays…primarily because I usually don’t have time each week to do the Favorites and secondly because I forget them and have to rush and put them together and then it’s just not coming from the heart and becomes a chore. No more Wednesday Worship. I will definitely have posts that are are solely about God and worshiping him, but I don’t want to do it because I must, I want to do it because my heart is full of love for Him…that’s the best reason and it might be on any day of the week and anytime of the the day! I love, love, love participating in Fingerprint Friday, so I will keep doing that and Silent Sunday too, because I truly do believe that I should have one day a week when I keep my mouth shut and Sunday seems like a good time because God said we should rest and I think God is a whole lot smarter than I am and I would like to have one day a week when I impart His brilliance instead of my own rambling craziness. So there you have it: that is the big change! Not that big really…just a little different, just a little tweak! Will I still have favorites and post them here on occasion? As that controversial, little lady from Alaska would say, “Ya betcha!” I’m am simply not going to force myself to do it each week. In fact, I might not do it each month, but if I see something I really, really love, I will definitely let you know about it.
Okay, well, that was quite freeing and I will wager a bet that because I can now simply write about the random things that pop up in my brain, I will be writing a lot more or at least on a lot more days! I hope so anyway because I love it and I love all of my graceful readers who pop over here and read what I have to say, even though on some days it might not amount to a hill of beans.
I have to run now…busy day with errands and work to do but I’ll be back, maybe tonight or maybe tomorrow, but I will be back. Until then, I send you…

Love Pioneer Woman!
Way to go on setting yourself free!
Blog what you love & we will all love it too!
That is exactly why I never tie myself down to doing certain posts on certain days. It makes me feel pressured and that's the last thing in the world that I need. So I just blog for fun, whatever strikes my fancy. It may be boring to some one day and funny the next. I am looking forward to your random thoughts Vicki!
Love Di ♥
I'm happy for you, finding a way to get out of a box and release the pressure of HAVING to write. Good for you!! I love your blog, and YOU!
Hey there! I have felt the same things about my blogs-but then I stepped back and only blog when I feel like it. Not that often….
I think I am going to follow your lead though and try to showcase some Etsy artists now and then. It's fun, and it's a good deed!
PS To answer your question about 3-d nativity-I think I will use paperclay.
