Bread Makings

Last week I wrote about an Italian Herb Bread Recipe I tried out. It's over on Treegold & Beegold.

Cool new tool: Pinterest


I have joined what appears to be the newest crazy, especially in the DIY/crafting world. It's called Pinterest.

Catch the rest of the article over on Treegold and Beegold.

Combining Blogs..

So I've had this personal blog for awhile and I've dreamed of getting my business blog up and going. I just don't have the time to do 2 different blogs though so I'm considering migrating all future material over to Treegold & Beegold. For awhile I would post links back here to send traffic that way but I think that if I ever want to have Treegold & Beegold be my main online presence then I need to start doing that now while I'm still small. I'll probably copy over some of my most popular posts also, the ones relating to tutorials or general information.

All this is coming about because I am slowly seeing my traffic numbers increasing and I've started working on a large tutorial and pattern that I am planning to offer free on the site. I am projecting that this pattern may help to increase my traffic by quite a bit and well I really want the traffic over at Treegold & Beegold more so then I want it here. I also forsee having more time to put forward towards the blog in the future. I've received some unfortunate news from work. Due to the continued decline of available projects for at least a temporary amount of time I'm being asked to drop my hours from full time, taking about a 20% pay cut along with it. So I'm going to take this opportunity and try to all my extra time at getting Treegold & Beegold up and running strong. Expect a week or so for me to get all the formatting and links done.

I hope everyone will continue to follow me over there. I'll make sure to leave a trail of breadcrumbs.

New Links

I've added 3 new and I think major links to the reference page.

These links are to 3 of my personal notebooks in Evernote and are constantly updated with information I find around the web. I know I've gone on and on about how much I love Evernote and really I can't say enough. Those should show you the power of it. I have craft projects from sewing, to crochet, to knitting, along with felt food, and cupcakes. The projects notebook at this exact moment contains 137 notes. I'm sure by the end of the day their will be at least 5 more. Earlier today I clipped multiple tutorials from around the web on felt food. I've tried my best to ensure that all notes link back properly to their source.

Many of the project notes contain .pdfs or files that contain a pattern or the instructions. Please enjoy and continue to check back in with all the folders.

My Collections

I have a zillion different notebooks including one on recipes. In time I may share that one to the public also but at the moment I'm still trying to collect and compile it to be a good representation of what I have. For a long time I downloaded all my recipes as .pdfs to my computer and after awhile that did not lend well to good sorting. The technique was good for archiving everything  but one of the powers of Evernote is the ability to tag every note and search by tags or just words within a note.

I've thought of doing link round ups and posting some of these hear to the blog directly but I'm unsure as to what everyone wants to see. Are their any types of projects that someone is most interested in? If so I'll keep an eye out among my blog roll and post them as they come through.
