I’m going to keep rolling with my writing challenge in August.
Curious what all this What I Ate Wednesday jazz is about? Head on over to Peas and Crayons to see more. In true Calee fashion, I’m not following the “rules” of WIAW this week. With good reason too: I mentioned on Sunday that I’ve got some food allergies. I’ve been feeling symptoms on other […]
This week marks the 4th year of this blog. Well, the anniversary of my blog, which has morphed a little bit throughout the last four years. To celebrate, I bring you chimes’s rockin’ 4-year blog birthday bash extravaganza. Fun posts? Check. Giveaways? Check. Kickass graphic of me as Courtney Love with a bass guitar (resurfacing […]
Drumroll please! It’s the triumphant return of Humpday Blog Love: A feature in which I tell you about a few other lovely people that I read and interact with online. This week’s lovin’ goes to Emily of Fit and Free with Emily, whose shirt in her blog banner totally matches my icon. On purpose. 😉 Though Emily’s […]
This week I’m featuring Heather‘s blog, Kiss My Broccoli. Heather’s from Tennessee and has a lot of sass. Not only does her blog have a catchy name, it’s got some great stuff. Including a LOT of recipes. And pancakes. I started reading Heather’s blog sometime in the past few months along with all the other […]
oh hai dere. You may or may not have noticed that my blog went from pretty bland to freaking screaming pink in about 24 hours. Aaaaaand you might have also noticed that it’s not “chimesblog” anymore. It’s back to “life + running”. Whaaaaa? Wait. What? Exactly. So this all started when I decided to go […]
I’ve been working with a local blogger who wanted to launch a bigger and better version of her blog. She curates and posts about local Des Moines vendors that cater to wedding needs. The website: Des Moines Wedding Savvy. We began talks a couple months back, and after chatting about the creative direction for a […]
I remember when the word/tag cloud things were all the rage on the internets. I used one for tags a long time ago on my old blog. I’m creating a bunch of these for a project for work, and decided to see what words I use a lot on my blog. I’m using wordle.net to […]
A fellow craftster just blogged about my gorgeous yellow water pitcher and some of my other ceramics in the craftster.org blog. I’m really flattered. You should check it out! It’s not often that I get press, so I’m pretty excited about this. 🙂
Just thought I’d mention to y’all that I’m now a featured lifestyle blogger on the Des Moines Register. To quote my friend Corey, it’s the modern-day equivalent of having a cable-access show! Which reminds me of some of my favorite SNL sketches … and best movie to spawn from SNL characters.
… and the winner of the marker set is: KIM! (comment #21) Okay, so with so many comments on this giveaway, I kind of felt guilty that one of my friends won these. I felt so guilty that I did the random number thing TWICE and it picked #21 BOTH times. Now how’s that for […]
I was featured yesterday on the Things We Make blog. I love it! I feel so famous when people blog about me! I met Amy Palanjian a couple months back when I did Market Street Media Foundry’s Market Day. She’s on staff with ReadyMade magazine here in Des Moines, so I felt pretty special when […]
