Be the Best in this New Year

Here we are again at the start of a new year & it’s time for resolutions!

Life gets so hectic during the holidays & it’s easy to forget about the meaningful things you have right in front of you. One thing I thought about during the holidays was the journey I’ve been through with my book, Vintage Notions. The timeless wisdom compiled within its pages continues to draw me in. I think that when you connect with a text, it will have something new to say to you each time you read it.

With this in mind, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to re-read Vintage Notions month-by-month and embrace those lessons of previous generations more fully in my everyday life.

Of course, everyone needs a little help achieving their resolutions…

I am disciplining myself to follow through with this resolution by launching the Vintage Notions Online Book Club via my blog. Each month I will share Vintage Notions inspiration & content on my blog and we can reflect on it together!

Join me by opening your own copy of Vintage Notions and begin reading January’s section. I will post our first “monthly discussion” at the end of January and encourage you to post replies to me & each other on my blog. If you don’t have yet own your own copy, you can buy one here (plus, here’s a 30% discount code – VN2013 – just enter that code during checkout!)

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you my favorite poem from the January chapter of the book… a good resolution in itself!



If you enjoy the content & discussions, consider grabbing some friends and hosting your own book club of your own! We have free downloadable PDF guide for Vintage Notions that feature discussion topics, suggest crafts and activities, and provide you with the option of monthly or one-time get together. Click here to download the Book Club Discussion Guide.

I hope you will read along with me & devote some time to learning from the women who have come before us. I think it’s a great way for us to grow & create together.
