can you believe summer is winding down? for me, it flew by. i feel a little out of touch with the blogosphere (and that had me a little sad!)

i loved the answers to the challenge: citius, altius, fortius. there was so much creativity, so much fun! up until this minute, i was stressing that i didn't have an idea for next week! but, as it always does, inspiration struck at just the right moment!!

(i hope you are enjoying the monthly challenges, because i seem to be stuck on that idea right now...)

in september, i am going to explore all the ways in which my life has become richer through the blogging connections i've created over the past few years. there are so many things i have done, so many challenges i've undertaken, so many ribbons i've tied, all because of inspiration from the blogosphere. i bet you can think of five examples before you reach the end of this post.

well, good! because it just so happens there are FIVE tuesdays in september. how about it?

your challenge is to highlight one thing per week that you have been inspired to do "because of a blogger." maybe it is a blogger you know (an old friend, a neighbor). maybe it is a blogger who is on your RSS feed. or maybe your creativity was sparked by a "drive-by" - a link to a link to a link. (wherever you found your inspiration, please try to give a nod to the appropriate blogger.)

i have broken the month into 5 "categories."

tuesday, september 2 home decor/tabletop
tuesday, september 9 entertaining/parties
tuesday, september 16 arts and crafts
tuesday, september 23 in the kitchen
tuesday, september 30 personal growth

this is a great month to come back to spt!! won't you join us?!? if anyone asks you why you're taking your own picture, simply smile and say, "because of a blogger..."

Oh Lelly. This is going to be a fun one, too. I can't wait to see all of the ideas.

You're a creative wonder.

I love having a month's worth of assignments and hope you'll keep doing that.

I think these topics are pure genius and it will be so fascinating to read all the posts on this, I hope everyone will do it!

I need to organize myself.
And return.
Return to do the spt!
Seems I haven't done one in about 6months.
Love this, Lelly! And I adore you too!
...Hope I can remember!
ha ha ha!

Rebekah said...

Lelly, I think I'm going to try this this month! Thanks for the ideas. We'll see what I come up with! :o)

I love having a month for my subconscious to work on an idea. These are GOOD ones--I can't wait to not only see what everyone does, but also to read who inspired them. I predict many new connections and friendships!

Sounds good to me.. I missed the month of August. But can't wait to start up again...

Amy said...

oooooh Fun!

Chris said...

This is going to be a challenge for me. One I hope I am up for. I think you might be on one of my list of 5 this month. :-)

Alisha said...

Fun idea, Lelly! Since I'm still a baby blogger (less than a year into it . . .) I hope I will be able to come up with some good ideas/links. If not, I guess it's time for me to go shopping in the blogosphere! After taking a month off of SPT, I'm excited to get back to it . . . I'm crossing my fingers that I'll come up with something.

michelle said...

Great idea, Lelly!!

Tammy said...

I am new to SPT Tuesday, but I am up for the challenge.

denise said...

I have enjoyed reading everyone elses SPT's but have never participated my self. But I'm ready to jump on the bandwagon.

Aranne and Dan said...

I love this challenge... Now I just have to remember and then post! I will be working on this one for sure.
