Blogging for Bliss

Good Morning to all of my cyber sisters
What is the weather like where you are?
Here in Missouri it's the perfect temperature, 60 degrees and the sun is shining!
The kids are all off to school and I have lots to get working on but I just had to tell you all about an amazing book my good friend,
Tina, gave me yesterday.

It's called
Blogging for Bliss and it's written by Tara Frey.
I have read 2 chapters and am totally inspired!
If you are wanting to start a blog or just tweak yours a bit then you will love this book.
I am so lucky to have Tina as my friend. The two of us are so much alike however she is about 5'9 and blonde and I am brunette and 5'1 ;)
She also teaches at
The Scrapbook Workshoppe and is such a fun person to be around.
