November News and an Announcement

Hi friends! Yesterday I shared that I would have some news for you today. Since, apparently, I’m terrible about keeping secrets across social media you may have already heard: I’m working on a Tinkerlab book (!!) to be published by Roost Books (2014). Holy Cow!

I’m sharing this, in part, to explain why I haven’t been able to post as much lately. I’ve been pulling the night shift in some of my favorite coffee houses around town in an effort to collect my favorite experiments and experiences into one tidy, welcoming place.

I started blogging about two and a half years ago after reading Amanda Blake-Soule’s The Creative Family. Amanda blogged before becoming an author, which planted the blog-to-book seed in my head. Shortly thereafter, I discovered Jean Van’t Hul’s welcoming blog,  The Artful Parent, and the rest is history. These two bright and authentic women enabled me to forge my path as a writer and blogger, and I’ll be forever grateful for their inspiration.

Because of these extra writing responsibilities, I won’t be able to keep up the frequency of blog posts for the next few months, but I want to keep the quality high with fun projects like the round-up of 50 Simple {Last Minute} Halloween Ideas that I shared yesterday. So, you may notice a slight shift in the Tinkerlab air, but I hope it’s a welcome change that’s full of good and interesting things.

I hope you’ll stick with me through this, let me know if I’m slipping too much, and please continue to share your inspiration with me.

Thanks for listening!
