When I went to my blog to update it, I was so embarrassed that I hadn’t posted anything since January.  I couldn’t help but wonder why!  Then I started thinking about what has occurred since then – just the usual.  Tapings through April, working on the 36th annual KENW online Auction through July, planning for the next series of Creative Living in terms of selecting topics, writing scripts, taping bridges, etc.  I just completed the new Creative Living booklet that accompanies this new series, and I’m so excited for you to see it.

The booklet is divided into four different sections, and I’m going to provide a link so you can go directly to the new booklet (if you’re interested) and download whichever part you want.  It’s free!  The link to all the booklets for Creative Living is:  http://kenw.org/creative-living-booklets.

Wanda Newberry designed the booklet cover again for me, and I told her that I always think the newest one is her best yet – but I’ve loved all the ones she’s designed over the years.  She is so talented!  If you’ve followed the show for long, and looked at all the booklets, let me know which one is your favorite – and I’ll share that with Wanda.

Our county fair is in progress and I enjoyed judging the 4-H Open class this year.  I love keeping up with what the 4-H members in our county are doing.  Probably comes from serving as an Extension Home Economist many years ago and working with the 4-H program as well as the adult homemakers program.

When you have time, I would like to encourage you to go to the home page for Creative Living, which you can find at:  http://kenw.org/creative-living-home-page

I’m making myself a promise that I won’t be so negligent on blogging from now on!  As my father-in-law always commented “Time will tell” and how right he was.

Bye for now,





Web Page Design

I know that many of you probably can create or design, update, etc. your web page. I, however, find it very frustrating. The University has a web master who has worked with our station for several years because we can’t afford to hire a full-time person. This talented young man came to the station to “train” about 6 of us so we could start making our own changes and additions to the various pages.

Well, I have to admit, I didn’t do anything about this until after a major project was completed which took about 3 months. Then, when I was ready to tackle the Creative Living web page, I couldn’t remember what he had told us. However, one of the people I work with had been using the skills we were trained in, and with a lot of help from her, I managed to update my web page.

The problem I am having is that a month goes by before I need to update or post anything new to the web site, so we’re back to square one.

Thanks for listening. Just needed to vent. ha If you’re interested, you can visit my web site at: www.kenw.org and click on the Creative Living tab at the top of the home page.
