Inspiration Board March 2012
Handmade postcards pinned to my Inspiration Board right now, all from the diy postcard swap of course.

I hope you’ve got a big inspiration board too? If not I made a tutorial back in 2008 on How I made my inspiration board. It’s a huge frame that I painted white and that I now use for hanging all kinds of inspirations. I still like it a lot, especially when handmade postcards arrive in the mail.

Today I’ve been creating my very first survey, like a professional business woman. I sent it out to participants of the swap, hoping to get some feedback on how it was made, the fee and when to do it next time. If you were in the swap I hope you can take the time to fill out the survey. If you can’t see it check your spam folder! ;-)

I have hosted the swap for three years and each year after it was finished I was so tired of it all. But this year I am not! I feel energized by it. And I am actually considering to host another one this autumn already… Would it be too much? Would you wanna join? I hope the survey will tell, but feel free to add your opinion in the comments.

I’ve also been playing with categories, tags and menu options on the blog a bit today. And I’ve finally (again) added a page with a kind of Blog Archive. It was a built in feature in previous versions of wordpress, but now, for some reasons I don’t understand, it isn’t. So I’ve done a bit of php-hacking and added it again.

I’m not sure if it an archive page is a must for a good blog, or if anyone uses it? But personally I enjoy it a lot! I love the different ways posts can be listed in months, years, by subject or theme or… Isn’t it quite cool what you can do with a bit of code?

I like seeing the tag cloud, the categories and post from nine years of blogging on one page. Have a look!
