 Happy 2014 everyone! I started the new year off with a sort of rough start, I caught the flu bug that's been spreading around like wild fire and I broke a finger. I'm hoping that now all that is out of the way and we can move on with fantastic things for this year! I mentioned in my last post that one of my goals for this year is to learn calligraphy so I picked up a dip pen and I have been practicing my lettering and technique everyday. I can see this becoming an addiction! This is the latest little thing I've been working on, and I have a few other little fun things in the works as well. I've been painting a calendar for this year that will be up in my shop soon, better late than never so keep your eyes out for that announcement! Until then enjoy our first link up for the year!
Welcome to THE monthly blog hop party! Every 1st Monday of the month, link up all of your social media and blogging accounts with us. If you're looking for your blogging tribe, this is it!

These guidelines are in place so that we can all have a successful experience with The Collective. Please do your best to abide by each one, there are only 2:

1. Follow the host and co-host's blogs: (first links in each list) If you leave a comment letting us know that you did and what method you are following with, we'll return the favor :) We greatly appreciate each and every one that does.

2. Get social: This hop is about creating community. Looking for your own blogging tribe? This is it. Visit as many blogs as you can and make sure you say hello!

The following are optional yet encouraged (they only help us all in the long run):

Grab a button: Using the code provided in the box, display the Collective button on your sidebar or wherever you list your link ups. The more people that do this, the more help there'll be to keep the popularity of the hop going.
