New Ideas & Stuff Coming To The Blog


 I have been thinking a lot lately, and have decided on adding some weekly installments to my blog.  I was going to do a new blog, but after much thought, and encouragement, decided to keep it all on this blog.  Might as well, right?  ;)

OK, so first off.  I am going to be doing a weekly inspiration post. 
For this post, I am hoping to have all of you email me projects you have completed
so that I can feature you!  Maybe some of you can provide tutorials as well.
The thought of this came to me simply because so many of you are creative geniuses
who are willing to share your amazing ideas, projects, and tutorials with us!
I will be adding a "Featured on The Benner Daily" button to my blog for those of you who
are featured.  You can add this button to your blog. 
How this is going to work is simple.  Just email me your projects with "Feature Me" in the subject line.
I will pick 1-3 people to be featured each week.  The number of features depends on, A. if you're project includes a tutorial, B. if you have more than 1 project that relate to each other, and C. what I am in the mood for.  ;) 

These projects aren't going to be categorized, so it doesn't matter if your project has to do with Christmas, Valentines Day or Summer time, etc.  Although, I may end up featuring more Christmas items as we get closer to Christmas.  We will see.

What do you all think?  Do you like this idea?  I figured that we all love some good inspiration, so why not inspire each other on The Benner Daily.  Featured posts will be every Thursday.  The posts will be called "Inspire Me Thursday". 

So, if you're interested in being featured, send me you projects, tutorials, etc starting now. 
Email me here: shealynn AT

I seriously look forward to the inspiration ahead!


The other thing I want to do is an ornament swap.  Must be handmade, of course. 

If you're interested in the ornament swap, please just comment on this post.  I will post more information in the days to come.  :)  Along with a button, of course!  There will be a deadline to sign up, and I will let you know all that information by the end of the week.

Hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday!!

I will be sending you email! The #1 thing I get asked is how I convert my blog into a book! I wrote a post all about it for those of us not using Macs.

Here are pics of my latest blogbook:
