Do we really need another social media photo sharing site… It’s hard to keep up these days isn’t it? I’ve been having a lot of fun with Instagram (and Tumblr, wordpress, facebook, Pinterest, twitter, google+….). How do they all differ, and what’s the point of them all, I here you ask?
Well, this might help… I was sent a great image yesterday that explains beautifully how all these social media sites fit together, and can (believe it or not) compliment each other:
Our little Heidi is 8 months old today. I thought, by now, I would grow tired of making movies about each milestone (I’ve surprised myself!). This one is set to one of the songs my sister put on our wedding music playlist, and one of my personal favourites… Steal My Kisses by Ben Harper:
I don’t need to be reminded why we have chosen to make a sea change… I have never once had any regrets about moving out of the city, or building our new home. However this morning I welcomed the very powerful reminder I was given… Read More
Heidi’s nursery (whilst temporary) is quickly filling with amazing hand made items, and gifts – making it feel more like home for her.
Knowing that we will be moving in a few months (when our new home is built), I didn’t spend a lot of time decorating her nursery…
a) because I will be packing it all up soon, and,
b) because we will be leaving the bright blue walls behind, and welcoming an entirely new wall colour in our new home (giving me more freedom with colours!).
In addition to what I have done, many other crafty people have contributed in their own unique way to making her nursery feel homely (many have crept out of the woodwork. The quilting fraternity is still alive and well – it seems to be the hidden talent of many!). And those that aren’t crafty (or just can’t find the time – fair enough!) have also provided simply adorable gifts for our little Heidi. This post is a pictorial display of the eclectic hand made items, and gorgeous designs that together make her temporary nursery a warm and welcoming home…
When I say ‘new camera’ I got it for my birthday 6 months ago… but with so much going on in our lives (pregnancy, building a house, moving home and work) I haven’t really had the time to play with it. Since I finished work… Read More
This post is dedicated to my long-time school friend Chris (AKA Twirling Betty http://www.twirlingbetty.com.au). She has been twirling away on her blog for many more months than I have… and was in fact the reason I started Hey Bernice! five months ago. Over coffee one day (whilst discussing her new blog) she said to me ‘you should start a blog’ which was all that was required to get me started.
I had a few mental hurdles to overcome before I took the plunge into the blogshere….
I didn’t know what to write about (I have never been short of a word, so not sure why I thought I would be short of something to write!)
If I started a blog, what was I going to call it (not a good enough reason not to do it)
I didn’t think I was a writer (I soon worked out that if I talked in my head, then typed it down I could overcome that hurdle)
Not only was I not a writer, how could I be sure anyone would want to read what I wrote (I also realised it didn’t matter, as long as I was still enjoying it)
