These are the good old days… #Littleloves

What better way to launch back into blogging for good than to join up with Morgana’s lovely linky: ‘Little Loves’ – it’s the perfect Catch-up-with-me post. So here are some of my Little Loves from this past week:

These are the good old days.  I saw this online this week and the words struck a chord with me.  So often we are rushing around doing day-to-day stuff that we forget to notice the present.  There’s a whole wave of ‘mindfulness’ and soul-searching happening in the world at the moment as people come to realise this more and more.  I’m printing this baby out for the wall.

good old days

Watched

McDonalds France has created this amazing video – turning people into emoji’s.  I’m an emoji lover and this video filled me with happiness. Ha!

Heard

I’m a 90’s chick.  When I spotted this CD in POUNDLAND of all places I couldn’t resist the urge to buy it for my car.  I spend a lot of time taxi-ing the girls about so they will be THRILLED to get swap Alanis Morisette for these legendary tunes.  🙂 ‘The Sign’, ‘Sweets for my Sweet’, ‘Saturday Night’ …. awww yeah!

Made 

Slight cheat… I haven’t actually made anything out of these…….. yet. But I spotted these in Lidl at 99p for 3 and the stationery geek in me squealed with joy!   I’m planning to make lots. Or just stare at them all day. They’re full of happy aren’t they?

Wore 

Again, another slight cheat… I ‘wore’ this Snapchat filter and cracked a laugh from my moody teen (yip, that’s her in the background… oh I am wearing her new scarf too… so double whammy) Oh snapchat I heart you.  Add me if you’re a snapper! Kerry1231

And Lastly..

Not to keep banging on about it.. but yes, I’ve had a slight tweak to this blog.  I’ve had mixed reactions to the change… people seemed to like ‘The Lovebump’ so I’m having little panics that I’ve made the wrong choice.  I just felt my readers and potential new readers didn’t really know the meaning of Lovebump and assumed me to be pregnant or porn. Ha! Kez Online encompasses everything in my world from kids to food to fitness to entrepreneurship to travel to social media to fun… all the stuff in my life.  I know people don’t like change, heck I’m the biggest culprit of that, but this is a positive one… stick with me here.

Have a great week my lovelies!

Welcoming back the PinAddicts challenge!

A couple of years ago I set up a website dedicated to all Lovers of Pinterest. PinAddicts 🙂

A linky party once a month which encouraged people to re-create something they had pinned on Pinterest. Instead of just pinning ALL.THE.THINGS and forgetting about them in Internet land, I decided that I actually wanted some of that stuff in my house. In my wardrobe. At our parties. In my life.

And so the PinAddicts site was born. A team of 7 amazing women wrote daily posts for the site on all things Pinterest – Recipes, DIY’s, Craft, Décor, Activities, you name it these chicks blogged about it. We had a stack of people blogging about things they had been inspired to make and do & then entering them into our linky. Sometimes we ran giveaways, we ALWAYS had lots of fun.

And then. My Dad got really ill. My life was literally turned upside down and I struggled to go to work every day, let alone blog all things happy and Pinterest. The site petered out, it needed love and I didn’t have any to give.

18 months on and my Dad is doing well, my life has finally returned to some sort of normality and I’ve started blogging again. I’ve had so much interest in the PinAddicts site, people literally email me weekly to find out if/when it’s starting up again.

And so…………. the PinAddicts linky is reborn!

I’m going to keep it here on my blog for now, a linky party every Tuesday which will remain open until the following Monday at midnight. So you’ll always have a linky to join and be inspired by fellow bloggers.  You’ll fast become part of this awesome community we have going over here.  We’re still on Facebook so come over and join us for daily inspiration on using up your craft stash, tips & tricks, tutorials – you name it we’ll be blabbing about it.

So, how does it work?

1) Find something you want to recreate that you have pinned on Pinterest

2) Recreate that thing

3) Blog about it! (or join in via the Facebook page if you don’t blog)

4) Come here every Tuesday and link it into the party  – make friends, be awesome, have fun!

Who’s excited? 🙂
