Army Book

Example of plain chipboard

Happy Friday. I am posting a book (a few pages). I made for Scott for Christmas. The project did not take long. It was simpler than others I have made in the past. This one did not have a lot of layers or painting.

I found the chipboard book already scalloped at Target. It has a metal ring that keeps it together. I painted the board and then layered paper and pictures.

The Army stickers are from K&Company. They have stickers for all branches of the military and you can order them online or find in any craft store.

This quick chipboard book is something that I will do again for others (family/friends), especially since there is a brand new Target close to me. With my longer projects I take a regular board book, sand it, prime it, then paint, layer, etc. They turn out really cool, but take much longer to create.

Bloggy Moms

Wednesdays I will feature spotlights of blogs that I like. The beauty to blogging is in supporting one another and I discovered this fantastic site where it is all about support. The creator actually takes the time to Tweet and has areas where you can promote your blog and interact with other bloggers for free.

Where Moms Who Blog Go!

The site is called Bloggy Moms.

I discovered Bloggy Moms through reading about an upcoming conference Blissdom. It is a blogging conference. This year it is in Tennessee. The blogosphere is huge and there is just about everything out there.

On average it takes about two to three years to get an audience/followers. You need to be consistent with your posts and let your readers know that you are committed. The best way to do this is through networking.

Thank you to Bloggy Moms for connecting people in an easy format and for taking the time to follow up with new members.
