Blogmas In January? - days 7 through 11
Today we continue with the blogmas for 2021. As you can see, I'm a month late with this. I was very busy back in December, and i couldn't finish it on time :(
I'll try to catch up now, in January, as I'm not inspired to write about anything else.
Without further ado, here they are!
Giving a second life our entries. Hmm, this is something I'll need to think about and possibly write a separate entry.
I guess, revisiting the entries and re-editing them to sound closer to our current writing style, yes?
I probably should do this with some. This action is good when considering re-branding. Speaking of rebranding, this entry will tell you more about some other things to consider if you want to re-brand your blog, site, or whatever.
For the 8th day, we had to create a wreath. If you remember from 2020's blogmas, on December 15, we had to do this. Except I'm not doing that sort of thing. We don't really care about Christmas in this house, except the gifts.
Instead, I arranged some magnets in a circle. Of course i repeated what i did the year before. This year I have different magnets I found at the dumpster (next to it). I got rid of the old ones, except for 2. The little doll with blond hair is not a magnet.
My favorite magnets are the pink Dutch clogs, the green building, the flamenco dancer, San Francisco Colorful Ladies, and the blue door from Morocco.
For the 9th day, we had to enter a contest for a premium account.
I didn't win because I ddin't even enter. I checked the challenge too late. The next day, late.
There's nothing more to say about this event.
For this day we were asked to write about "zero waste." I wrote something similar in July, called "why isn't all single-use plastic banned" or something among this line. You can read it here, if you haven't seen it yet.
I do want to say that i can't see "zero waste" being possible, at least not yet. The idea is actually to reduce the amount of waste we produce daily or weekly. Additionally, we should also reduce the amount of stuff we buy, and buy only if:
- we really need it
- we really like it
Buying less means less waste and more money in our wallets. This is great!
For this day, we were asked for Christmas gift ideas. We could also share what we bought to give away as gifts.
Obviously, back then, I couldn't post what i bought. But now i can. Well, everything i bought was decorated with birds. The majority of the birds i got were flamingos.
The most spectacular gift was the paper gift bag itself. This is red, with some sparkles. Then, I also got a set of 2 plates. These are also red, decorated with some flowers and birds. I think these 2 were the
