In 2015 Stephanie from Swoodson Says proposed the idea of TSNEM – Try Something New Every Month. She had hoped to get other bloggers to participate but in the end there were only three of us that did it every month, Stephanie and Kristy.
This year we are doing it again but hoping to get more people involved! First is the addition of a Facebook group. Come join us and get ideas, ask questions, and share what you’re trying for the month! Each month there will be a post announcing the theme and either Stephanie or I will host a link-up on the post that is open all month, allowing anyone to add a picture and share what they tried. And make sure you share your projects on Instagram using #TSNEM
We wanted to have themes to give people some ideas of things to try, but wanted to leave them pretty broad. Pick something you’ve been wanting to try out and experiment! I wouldn’t consider everything I did for TSNEM 2015 a success, but I’m still glad I tried them and I’m really excited to see what 2016 brings! Hopefully you’ll join us!
