Yay, you’ve made it over! I’m so happy to see you here!

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you the big project I have been working on lately… a brand spanking new blog! So…

A huge welcome to Artfully Carin!

I hope you’ll like it here. I am so excited about this place and can’t wait to share all my new ideas with you.

Artfully Carin has been rattling around in my head for a while now. It combines the ideas behind 2 of my previous blogs, Created with Love and Life As We Know It, but steps it up a notch. It’s a place where I can celebrate life in all its glory through art and writing, where I can grow as an artist, and develop my dreams to teach art journaling and mixed media online. I would love for you to come along for the ride.

The wonderful Michele from Be Inspired Design did a great job of setting up the blog for me and getting it ready so I could move straight in and tinker with  the design. I am so grateful for all her help and would highly recommend her. Michele, you are helping me make my dreams come true, so thank you from the bottom of my heart!

And just so we’re clear…

Artfully Carin will now take the place of Life As we Know It.

With this now being my one and only blog, I have moved all my posts over and streamlined all my other accounts to fit in with it. Which means I would really appreciate if you could take a minute or two to check that you have the right addresses/ feeds. You’ll need to update your reader of choice (see sidebar). I have also created a new page for facebook and a new channel for YouTube. And I recently joined instagram (oh what a fab place that is! I’m totally in love!), so please check them out.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll go go collapse on the sofa with a cup of tea! I’ve had some very late nights and early mornings getting this ready while the rest of the house slept!
