What is the Saturday Social?

On the last Saturday of every month we will each host a different Social Followers party.

This month I am hosting the TWITTER party!

Here’s a tip for using Twitter:  Did you know you can make Twitter lists to create groups of people?  You can make a list for family members, your volunteer group, your bookclub ect.

How to Organize and Create a Twitter List:

How to Organize and Create a Twitter List Tips - It's Easy!

This is how you create a Twitter list:

  1. Go to your Twitter Lists page. This can be done via the gear icon drop down menu in the top right navigation bar or by going to your profile page and clicking on Lists.
  2. Click Create list.
  3. Enter the name of your list, a short description of the list, and select if you want the list to be private (only accessible to you) or public (anyone can subscribe to the list).
  4. Click Save list.

To add or remove people from your lists:

    1. Click the gear icon drop down menu on a user's profile. 
    2. Select Add or remove from lists. (You don't need to be following a user to add them to your list.)
    3. A pop-up will appear displaying your created lists. Check the lists you would like to add the user to, or uncheck the lists you'd like to remove the user from.
    4. To check to see if the user you wanted to add was successfully included in that list, navigate to the Lists tab on your profile page. Click the desired list, then click Members. The person will appear in the list of members.

** If you haven't set up a Twitter account, now is the time to sign up and GET SOCIAL. **

Just add the link to your Twitter account below so others can find you and follow you, (and your photo or blog button) and then follow others.

 

The parties will start at 8am EST and close at 11:59 PST

DIY Ombre Christmas Ornament


Ombre is a home design trend that I love. 
 
If you aren’t familiar with the term, Ombre refers to a color gradient that progresses from lightest to darkest.
 
Like you see on a paint chip!

Which is what inspired me to make this DIY Ombre Christmas Ornament!

Today We Remember the Poppies That Blow Between the Crosses Row on Row.

 

Today is Remembrance Day.

We remember those amazing men and woman of our armed services that have died and fallen in service to our country.  Two minutes of silence will be observed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
