Welcome to August and Tuesday Turn About August Finds! I’m featuring a little bit of this-‘n’-that at the party today!

If you missed last week’s party, I shared some lovely posts for Christmas in July.

Can you believe it’s August already?

For the last two years, the word “August” has new meaning for me. Every time I say the word, it now makes me think of my #3 jellybean, who shares the name with the month. Never thought I would have a towheaded, blue-eyed grandchild, but I do! So fun!

Do you have any special plans for this month?

This week, I’m featuring a little bit of this and a little bit of that to kick-off this month’s parties!

Let’s get some tips before we get to the features, shall we?

Weekly Blogging Tip

Are you sending a newsletter to your subscribers when you publish a post? What about sending a summary type newsletter once a week with all the posts that have gone live for that period of time?

Newsletters are a great way to engage with your readers and serve as a reminder that you have great ideas for them, whether it’s decor tips and tricks, an easy DIY, a yummy recipe, or a fun craft for the weekend!

Weekly Household Tip

Making a personal list for myself of the household tips I share might be in order! I can’t remember if I’ve shared this one before! If I have, it bears repeating.

When doing a paint DIY around the house, and the first coat of paint needs to dry in order to apply a second coat, wrap your brush/roller in plastic wrap! This keeps the brush from drying out, and you can use it again! Covering your paint tray works this way, as well!

Now to go start that list. 😉

Oh my goodness, I think I have a surprise (to me) theme going on this week! My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia is showing us how to use citrus fruits and essential oils to repel bugs AND make our outdoor area that much prettier! And Kristin has even more luminary ideas at the end of her tutorial!
