Moving Monday::Web Makeover

by heatherkp

With one move finally behind me I’m about to begin another one (maybe just as big in a different way).  You see,  this here blog has reached capacity…and it’s on the verge of a meltdown!  I’ve been using it for several years with the intent to MOVE it over to my own domain name and website but obviously that hasn’t happened YET!  Ack, I took a class to learn to design my website in late 2010 and got in over my head so I just made some small changes to my blog and kept on posting…until several weeks ago when I started getting notices that I was going to run out of space to post any more photo’s.  Well as you know most of my posts include photo’s so what am I going to do with a blog that I can’t post photo’s to?

Well as luck would have it right around that time I got an email about a new version of this class I’d taken back in 2010.  I saw some changes had been made to make things a bit more simple and clear so I decided to give it another whirl, I’ve got nothing to loose!  Last week I began working on creating my new website and eventually my blog and full web presense will be moved over here.

In the meantime as will all moves, things get hectic and you have to be patient with yourself and take some of the pressure off.  In doing so I’ll be taking a little haitus from my blogging with hopes of being up and running over at HKpowerStudio.com by the end of September.  There, I said it and now I’ve got to stick to my word!  Just because I won’t be posting here doesn’t mean I won’t be around on the web.  You should come over and check out my Facebook Page, where I post tips, photo’s and other resources for organizing, art and design.   I’m also on Twitter,  Pinterest and Instagram all as HKpowers where I share links, quotes, tips and photo’s.

We all need a break from time to time and with the seasons changing, work picking up and some travel plans ahead this is a good time to make some big changes.  I hope you’ll be patient with me and stay along for the ride!

Follow this Friday::Reuse and Organize

by heatherkp

Here are a few favorite things I found this week that fall into the categories of re-use and organizing.  You can’t beat that combo!Suitcase Side tables from Cupcakes and Cashmere

Crate’s are popping up everywhere and here are a few ideas for their use.

Crate Side table from Neet Magazine

Crate Shelves from Design sponge

Various shelves and organization by way of re-purposed crates, suitcases etc from Recreate

To see more ideas for re-using everyday stuff check out my Pinterest Re-Use It board.  If you would like to follow my boards (any or all of them) please click on the link in the Right hand sidebar or Here.

There is a lot of discussion these days about how images collected on Pinterest are attributed, in my case I always try to link back to the origional makers.  In some cases these items are for sale but may not be available.  In other cases they are simple ideas that no one would mind you reusing in your own way.  In any case I hope you will give credit to the creative makers who inspire us with their DIY inventions!

Thursday::Things

by heatherkp

I finally joined Pinterest in December and I’ve found it to be such a fantatic tool for organizing all the things that inspire me!  I was worried (as you may be too?) that it would just be another website that sucks time away from my day but I’ve found that’s not really the case.

I find that I use the Pinterest bookmarklet to pin things as I’m browsing other sites.  In the past I’d have to do a screen capture and or bookmark the site or subscribe to the blogroll or favorite them via Etsy or Flickr and going back to try to find anything was next to impossible!  Some people also use Tumblr for this purpose but I’m loving the way Pinterest works and how I can create my own categories, tags etc.  Here is one of my collection of THINGS::Girly Frilly Things to be more specific!

And here is a board of THINGS::Tactile Texiles to be more specific.  I love the flexibility of this new website!

Click on these photos for links to the boards and for more specifics about each pin.  For now you need an invitation to join but you should get a response from them within a few days at most.  Are you on Pinterest?  What do you love about it?
