For June…

In Uncategorized by Lisa Burnett

Yes I said June.  Yikes.  I'm worried summer will be over before I even realize it began.  Anyway, we have a peek at our June label club.  We were inspired by the table runner we had at Quilt Market- the one everyone signed.  We thought it would be fun to do the same idea in a pillow.  Only when you had guests at your house, you could have them sign it, kind of like a guest book.  Or even better, you could use it at a party, graduation or house warming event as a special memory.

Just wanted to clear something up about Monday's post.  We won't actually be blogging less (well, we will try really hard not to blog less).  Some of you have expressed concern that you may miss out on something because we are now on Instagram.  Don't worry.  We aren't abandoning our blog.  But if you want to find out more of what we do, what inspires us, see where we live and catch a few pictures of the most adorable kids in the world (ok- I am a little biased), you can follow us on Instagram.  For those of you who aren't on Instagram (because those of you who are on Instagram already know this), I will give you a quick explanation why.

It is sooooooooooooooo easy.  

That's it.  It is quick, easy and to the point.  Blogs are great for telling a story, showcasing fabric and patterns and highlighting the big stuff.  And even though I love doing it, you still have to get out that big expensive camera, search for the best light, download the photos, select the best ones, put them in photoshop, edit them, save them to the computer, upload them to the blog and write a story.  It takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.

With instagram, I can post 5 photos in the time I wrote that last paragraph. Which also means, we can't really go into depth about anything- just a quick photo.  Which is why we will continue to blog.  So don't worry.  

Ok.  I'm done with raving about Instagram for awhile.  But if you try it, you will love it.  Trust me!
