Too busy Pinning to Blog!

March 12, 2012

Happy Daylight Savings time!  We enjoyed fantastic spring weather in Chicago yesterday and an extra hour of daylight.  But with that one less hour in the day – fitting in time to write my blog has proved difficult.  I’ve been hoping for weeks that I could have an extra hour a day to get everything done, but just sleeping less which has made me cranky.  We have a trunk show in Atlanta and a photo shoot this week, as well as new items in production and a new skort sample to develop and test – so to say we’re busy is an understatement.  (All great “problems” to have – we love being busy!)

Then there is actually some non-Smashing stuff to do like feed my sons, help with homework, beat them at Monopoly on our Saturday game night, etc.  But the real reason my blog is late, is that I’ve got a bad case of bloggers-block.  I think our best blogs are when we have something ridiculous happen and our reaction to it, but things have been going well (virtual knock on wood now!).  Although, we do have a bunch of new porn star followers on Twitter and one that asked to host a trunk show, I’m thinking that we should pass on that one, even if Spinner speculates that porn stars might play tennis or golf too!  (I’m afraid of the blog hits/comments we’ll get now that I’ve mentioned the word “porn”.)

So lacking something to blog about, thought I’d check out Pinterest to find some inspiration.  Two hours later of pinning, still no blog ideas, but a lot of cool stuff out there.  Wish I would have created Pinterest – I think part of its success is in its’ simplicity, and the adage of a picture is worth a thousand words is proven here, and a clever name to boot.  We’ve added a new section called “Behind the Scenes” – check it out.

So as we prepare for our photo shoot Wednesday, I’m sure we’ll have some excellent pictures and stories to share on Thursday, but since it’s a rainy Monday and I’ve got a lot of tweets and emails from porn stars to reply to – just going to say Happy Monday and stay tuned for Thursday!

Have a Smashing Monday.

    I think pinterest just may be a cult. It is sucking us in and isolating us from the rest of the world, filling our head with images of beautiful things (most of which we cannot have)

    I fight the urge to go there, yet I find myself mindlessing looking at pictures, fantasizing about the wonderful clothes I should be wearing, food I should be eating and places I should go.

    I must be off I can fight the urge no longer.

      I would have responded earlier – was too busy pinning! Thanks for reading!
