I know I'm crazy, but I've always enjoyed painting! It is sort of relaxing, and I love the way you can transform a room simply by updating the wall color. It's a good thing, too -- because we've bought and rented a few fixer-uppers through the years that needed a great deal of painting! Plus, with 24 hands in our house, freshly painted walls have never lasted long! ;) So, I've found myself with a paintbrush in hand quite often through the years!
Lately, I've been working to "add a fresh coat of paint" to my blog. Have you noticed some changes to my home on the web??
I really want to bless my husband and relieve some of his stress by contributing to our income. Like the Proverbs 31 woman, I am seeking ways to do this from home. I was super excited when I learned that you can make money through blogging, since this is something that I enjoy, and that can be done from home, squeezed into the nooks and crannies of my busy days. Plus, I love sharing about my big, crazy family and encouraging other women according to the mandate of Titus 2:3-5, which helps me fulfill my life calling.
So, I've been "painting" and "rearranging" and "redecorating" around here, as part of an effort to improve my blog, to increase traffic, and to begin to earn some money through blogging. This has involved some cosmetic changes, the addition of ads on my sidebar and also a new domain name. My blog is now located at http://www.yestheyareallours.com . If you enter my old address of http://yes-theyre-all-ours.blogspot.com , you should be redirected. However, I've noticed that those of you who have my blog in a blogroll on your blog's sidebar have not been receiving updates. So, you might want to update the URL of my blog in your blog list widget.
If you have a family-friendly product or service that you offer and would like to get the word out to my readers, check out my advertising policies. I would love to highlight your business on my blog! I am also willing to do product reviews and/or giveaways.

Thank you for your support and also your patience . . . especially if you happen to visit my blog when I am in the middle of a project and find that things are in disarray. As you may know from experience, every home-improvement project seems to take longer, cost more, and be messier than you expect! I think blog-improvement projects are similar creatures! So, don't be surprised if you discover a mess every now and then! ;)
Thanks for reading!
