My creative space…

March 24, 2011 60 Comments by Kirsty

Just a little bit more coffee inspired craft.

Because it’s addictive really & we know that’s the way I like it. Same routine … same run, same breakfast, same coffee. Same works for me. I’ve weaned myself off the nougat but I’ll never give up the coffee.

I think that the picture links are working nicely. Are you using it properly? Giving us a little taste of what we might find when we land on the blog? A pic of what is actually in your space? I think that makes the image link really work for you. If people like what they see in the thumbnail they’re going to click over aren’t they?

Do pop in & add your link if you’re playing along & have a great day.

    I love coffee and although I am trying to cut down on my weekly consumption, my morning coffee stayed untouched!

    Great idea with the picture links! Thank you!

    Mornings are always about the same routine here too, and always begin with a big strong cup of coffee!

    I do like the picture link. I think about the pic I want before I post. For some reason though this morning mine didn’t work so I tried again and it worked fine. Don’t know what happenend there! Good on you though Kirstie. I wouldn’t have half the visitors I do without Creativ Space or would I see as many amazingly talented peeps!

    The picture links definitely make me more tempted to look at people’s spaces – before it was a tad random, but now you can get a taste of what’s to come!

    Speaking of taste… I’ve been drinking decaf (pregnancy… breastfeeding…) so long I’ve forgotten what the real stuff is like :(

    I am a bit weird when it comes to coffee. I love the smell of fresh coffee beans, but once it hits that next step in the process I do not like the strong taste and odor that comes from coffee drinks. Having said that I do not mind a coffee drink, as long as it is super weak.
    And for some reason strong coffee hits my system really hard — I only need a few sips and I’m bouncing off the walls.
    Maybe I just haven’t met the right coffee.
    BTW, I like your new link system. Having those visuals is very encouraging.
