Here at Reclaiming the Home big things have been going on behind the scenes. The needles have been knitting, the sewing machine has been sewing, and bits of craftiness are showing up everywhere around the house, here and there. Because of my cold, the only cooking that has gone on was done by the infamous Mr. Rose with some buffalo cheese dip that he was quite proud of. I'll have to ask him for the recipe so that I can share it soon!
The big news though, comes in the form of the new public Reclaiming The Home forum!
My goal for the forum is to be a community of people who care about their homes and the gentle home arts. There will be tutorials, resources, and information that will help us all to learn to be better Reclaimers, while providing incentive and motivational games in a fun atmosphere where we share our love of the home with one another.
It is a place of friendship that welcomes people from all walks of life, where we all get to be ourselves, get to know one other better, support each other, and share our joys as well as our sorrows. You don't have to be a mother, a wife, or stay at home to enjoy homemaking.
I know you will find real community here, grow friendships, build each other up, learn new things, and just enjoy hanging out at the forum.
If you have a moment, stop on by and take a look. There is so much to be found there and so much more to come, including a big surprise event for all of the forum members that will begin within the week!
This idea has been in the works for some time, and I am so pleased to say, has finally come to fruition. So many people were involved in its creation. A big thank you to Caitlin, Pam, Diane, Audrey, Rachel, Robyn, Danna, and SO many more lovely women who helped to make this part of my dream a reality!
