Today I'm very excited to tell you about a project that's been in the works for many months.
I've been working on an app with the help of my very talented husband and it's finally the
day of the offical launch!
CourseCraft makes creating and selling e-courses easier than
you could ever imagine. If you have a special skill (I know you do) and you've been dying to
share it with the world, now is your chance. E-courses are quickly gaining popularity on
the internet and for good reason.
Why are e-courses so awesome?
- Make passive income off your skill or craft.
- Develop a personal connection with your followers and fans.
- It's fun to teach people something useful.
- Reach a huge audience (ie: the whole darn internet).
You can start creating your e-courses right this very minute.
Just sign up for CourseCraft by
filling in a few fields and you can dive right into writing lessons. Format your text using the
simple text editor, upload files to your lessons and add an eye-catching cover
photo. Right now, the promotion part is up to you but we help by giving you a URL to spread around
that links back to a professional and polished splash page. There are huge plans in the works
to add more ways to help you promote your courses including a CourseCraft marketplace.
If you make a course with CourseCraft I would looooove to hear about it. Your feedback is
what will help make CourseCraft great. Also, I want to feature some course creators on the
blog so I'll be on the lookout for people like you.
On Friday my family lost a very special person. He had been sick for many years,
but for some reason I never actually thought this day would come. He always
seemed invincible to me.
"I was just entering my teenage years when Mike came into my life. I'm sure I
didn't make it easy on him, but he stepped into his role like he had always been
there. He was everything a girl could need or want in a dad. He was my scary
authority figure, protector, giver of huge bear hugs, teller of disgusting
jokes and most of all he made me feel so loved. I'll never feel like I had
enough time with him or learned enough from him, but I'm thankful for what I

Birthdays usually bum me out a lot, but for some reason this year I'm actually looking forward
to it. A little bit. I've got a small get together planned with friends, my husband says he
has a surprise for me and my grandma is taking me out for lunch. Can't complain about
any of that! For reasons that can't be explained though, I just booked a haircut at a completely
new salon days before my birthday party, so maybe I should add a hat to my birthday wishlist here.
So after my hopefully-not-too-horrible but probably-not-very-good haircut, you can buy my
happiness with any of these suggestions. Or just tell me I look pretty.
The search for furniture for our new house has been a slow process. We've decided to mostly
stick with whatever we have for now and save money for stuff we really like, even if that means
using our old kitchen table as a desk for the time being. One thing we needed right away was
dining room chairs and luckily we managed to snag these for free from some very nice people
looking to get rid of some furniture.
I'm absolutely in love with the shape, but not in love at all with the fabric. Hey, they
were free so I can't really complain. The chairs also go beautifully (sort of) with our
vintage teak dining table... more on that in a later post.
My task now is to recover
these chairs with a slightly less 'granny' fabric, but that's proving more difficult than I
thought because there's too many great prints to choose from! Since we don't really have any
other furniture I can pretty much go with whatever colours
I want, so I've managed to narrow it down to a pattern in either blue, black or green. I chose
blue and black because it's dark enough hide any potential stains and is easy to decorate
around later, and I chose green because I think it would look nice with the slightly reddish
tone of the wood.
What do you think? I'm leaning towards the triangles in the very first circle but late last night
while I was browsing fabric I got this crazy idea that I wanted a skull print.
I went to bed thinking I had it figured out. In the light of day, that idea is looking a little
crazy... or is it? Ack! There's too many choices! This may come down to me closing my eyes and
pointing at the screen.
