Your Thoughts, Please.

I'd love to know three things from Smile And Wave readers.

1. How would you classify this blog? If you had to choose one category to fit it into, what would it be?

2. Would you like to see more craft tutorials, personal family anecdotes, vintage and visual inspiration, or a good mix of all of the above?

3. What age group/occupation/gender/family status are you? (10-20, 20-30, 30-40, 40-50, 50+) (job, wahm, sahm, student, etc.) (female/male) (single, married, mom, etc.)

I'm just curious as to who you are and how you see my blog and what I can do to make this place even better for both of us. Thanks for the time it takes to answer these questions!

xoxo,
Rachel

I would classify your blog as crafty, personal, and a place for all things pretty and vintage.

I like a good mix...I love crafty but I also like to know the blogger behind it.

I'm 30-40 and I'm currently a SAHM to 3 year old twin girls.

Keep up the great work, and thanks for the Home Ec class...can't wait!!!!

1. I'd say "crafty mommy" I love how you bring art and craft into your daily life with your kids.

2. I always enjoy your craft tutorials and family anecdotes.

3. I'm a 23 year old preschool teacher who aspire to be a creative wife and mom one day. i'm exploring and enjoying life as a single young woman...before i eventually get married and have kids of my own. :)

i enjoy that your blog is so close and personal yet not too much like it's revealing every single detail about your life.
Definitely looking forward to more craft tutorials.

I think of your blog as a craft blog, but love that it also has fun other things too! Tutorials are always awesome, but whatever you blog about is always worth reading about! I'm 25.

1. Crafty, Inspirational, Family blog

2. Mixture would be great. Any crafter loves tutorials, more would be fabulous.
I also appreciate your personal family anecdotes, it shows your a real person and I can totally relate to your stories. I also love reading your life goals and lists. It puts things into perspective and makes me remember that I need to slow down and spend more quality time on what is most important... you are very inspiring.
Vintage & Visual Inspiration are great for the quick reads and everyone loves adorable Images.

I just stumbled onto your blog, I think it was a reference from Anahata Katkin's blog to your online journaling class. I like your style and aesthetic and I think that is what really makes me come back regularly.

I would classify your blog as a craft (with emphasis on sewing and paper) blog but you add parts of your personal life to it so it has a personal touch. I like the mix of posts. My favorite things are the tutorials and craft related things.

I am married, an English teacher/librarian, in my mid-thirties, female, a doggy mommy, and a Californian living abroad.

Thanks for your posts. And I am very excited about home ec!

2. I come to your blog for the vintage finds that you have, home decor and family updates/adventures/mama advice that you give.

Eartha Kitsch said...

I really love your blog just as it is - a great mix of all of those mentioned. I've got you categorized under "lifestyle" in my blog bookmarks but that doesn't seem to say enough. Anyway, I think that you have the perfect formula.

Oh, and I'm 40 and holding & female with no kids but I love reading about motherhood.

Hey i Just recently stumbled upon your blog and I'm addicted. I just created my own blog this summer and wrote a post about a few things I love right now and posted your blog! :)

23 years old, on the verge of becoming an art teacher. independent artist & crafter (been doing it since I could hold a crayon).

I love how inspirational your blog is with all the vintage and crafts you produce. I like the insight of your daily life & how fun and goofy it sounds. I find many "inspirational // art blogs" on the internet but yours is the most real I have stumbled upon. You let some light in on your life instead of making this blog pure business. makes it more 'real'.

hope your okay with the link from my blog that I posted today!

Jenna
