five things, december 2nd edition

  1. I think this has been the most amazing week! Your response to the redesign of SPL of the has been so touching and overwhelming to me; I am so very moved by it. I especially appreciate your encouragement over the new format, of a early-day photo and a later day expansion post. I just wasn't sure when I decided to embark on that particular path, but with you guys behind me, I think I'll keep it up! It may take awhile to catch on, but I'm (mostly) patient. I'm thinking of disabling comments on the {still} posts, and saving up for the {life} posts, but you guys will have to let me know what you think. Want to try to guess what the {still} is about, or just want to take a peek and comment once {life} rolls around?
  2. I think having a couple of my photos published in a local news magazine (Veer) as part of ads for Simply Selma's was the icing on the cake of a pretty nice week.
  3. I think I have to stop saying that I never win anything, since I (quite by accident since I thought the contest was over) won this gorgeous painting at white tapestry. This is a gorgeous blog. You should check it out.
  4. I think the fact that we're having some photos taken tomorrow and I'm going on a little trip next week should mean new clothes. Yes?
  5. I think you still have a couple of days to hop over to inspirationCooperative and participate in Theresa's birthday giveaway. This is another gorgeous blog I discovered through my Blogging Your Way class. I'll be sharing more in the coming weeks.

Just a little bit of housekeeping... if you've subscribed to SPL via RSS, you may need to re-subscribe. Once I changed platforms, the old blog (which had the link "bluerainroom" attached) ceased to exist, so it won't get you anywhere. Sorry for any confusion. Also, for the same reason, if you've posted a link to my blog in your sidebar, would you mind updating it? Thanks so very much. I'm trying very hard to get into the holiday spirit. How's that going for the rest of you? Also, I've added a facebook page for still+life if you want to hop over and "like" it, or whatever it is that we do on facebook these days. Even if you don't love to comment, feel free to come show me some love! There's a link under the "Find" tab. The camera icon on the "Find" page links to my Instagram feed on Followgram. And thanks to Annabel at insideology, I sort of know what I'm doing there. Sort of. And I don't know why that last link looks different from all of the other links, but there you are. I still have a lot to figure out apparently.

Finally, "five things" will still be here on Fridays (obvs) as a standalone post. See you dears on Monday. Hope you have a great weekend. The first weekend of the last month of the year. Yipes!
