Note: I'm rerunning this post about my new site because we're offering a giveaway for all who register at Twig and Feather by December 10th. The winner of the drawing will receive a copy of A Whisper in Winter, an ornament from Pottery Barn, a mug, candle, and assorted cocoas. If you missed the first post about the site, here it is again. We've been having a great time sharing recipes, holiday tips, and homemaking ideas. Please consider joining us!
About a year ago, I got an idea for a site that would help organize your home in fun, practical, innovative ways. I can't tell you those ways--not yet anyway. Our software developer is working on it. But we--and that "we" includes my two partners, Andy and Nichelle Isaacson--have taken the first step toward making that site a reality.
Please consider yourself invited to join our Twig and Feather community. Why Twig and Feather? Because I couldn't shake the image of a nest. To me, it encompasses all the emotion I feel as a wife, mother, and homemaker. My home is our nest. And like any nest, it's comprised of practical structure--twigs, if you will--like budgeting, menu planning, cleaning, and all those other not-fun-but-very-necessary components. But it's also comprised of "feathers"--the soft side of nesting, things like candles and music and fluffy pillows. Every nest needs both twigs and feathers. Our site aims to share and solicit ideas for all these areas, and encourage you to make your home a warm, welcoming refuge in a world that is anything but warm and welcoming.
For right now, we're offering a forum. This will be the nuts and bolts of the site until we can launch the bigger features. We hope you'll consider joining our T & F community. More than that, we hope you'll inundate us with all your ideas.
Here's the link. I hope to see you there.
