Shari (Sharinskishe to the BloggerWorld) Takes Over Make-Do Mondays
When I (Ann) started Make-Do Mondays on December 29, 2009, (*Correction* that would be 2008) I began, “In this fragile economy, I thought it might be informative (and a little entertaining) to share all the ways we’re making-do.”
And with that, I launched Make-Do Mondays: a carnival that I hoped would celebrate creative problem-solving, contentment, patience and ingenuity. I think it has—I hope it has! I hope readers and participants have enjoyed pondering how they can use what they’ve got on hand and sharing some of their clever solutions.
As the year progressed, I began to realize that I was running low on ideas and eventually concluded that I would not be able to sustain the role as host.
So last week I proposed letting someone else host Make-Do Mondays. If no one offered to take on the role as host, I was simply going to shut it down.
Shari of My Practically Perfect Life stepped up to the plate! Make-Do Mondays lives on!
Shari is a veritable make-do guru. You might enjoy browsing her collection of make-do solutions here.
What this means is that I’ll pack up Make-Do Mondays into a duct-taped box and send it to its new home. This time next week I’ll provide the link to Shari’s first official post, where it will have been unpacked and arranged nicely in its new home base!
I’ll still be making-do, since that’s in my basic nature, and when I manage to put together a Make-Do Mondays post, you’ll know where to find me.
As a kind of book-end to my part in this, I thought I’d show you my make-do floss. Because the floss, you see—the broken floss container, that is—well, that’s what started it all.
Please don’t tell my dentist how much is left.
