Announcement: I’ve Started a Tumblr Blog!

April 13, 2013Allison Murray

Check out the Dream a Little Bigger Tumblr blog for the days best DIY and craft projects!

For a while now I’ve really considered starting another blog that focuses on crafts that I think are the bees knees and would like to share with you. Since I share so many craft tutorials already on Dream a Little Bigger I knew it needed to be a separate entity. But I wanted to make sure that my Tumblr blog was different than what I’ve seen other crafters do. I didn’t want it to be me reposting all of my own stuff somewhere else because that seems ridiculous. If you want to see that you’ll come here, right?

So Tuesday afternoon I was all abuzz with nervous energy as I found out that it was a night that could have tornadic activity. Now I’ve lived in Tornado Alley since 1992 and I’m still not used to it. Do I go out on my porch and point at the tornados that are flying through the air? Yes because fearful or not, I’m still an Okie.

To keep my mind off of the terrible idea that a decent day could be turned into my huddling in the bath tub with a dog and 4 cats I decided to just get in there and do it. So now you can visit Dream a Little Bigger on Tumblr! Let me know what you think :)

    :) Welcome to tumblr!
    I got the message, you're already following me back, but I have also a second tumblr-blog, dedicated to my blog, where I collect mostly Interior- and IDY-inspiration, if you'd like to follow that one instead. (
    Anyway: tumblr is a lot of fun and you'll stumble across a lot of inspirational photography, I promise!

    Love, Midsommarflicka

    Awesome! I use Tumblr for my random blogging and I'm so excited to follow your craft inspirations on there now, too! Also, how scary do tornadoes sound?! I've never lived anywhere affected by them, but your description and more than 20 year long fear of them sounds so terrifying! Stay safe! Also I love that you have so many pets. I want to live in your house!

    Thanks so much, Melyssa! Tornadoes are crazy scary. There's this word that is associated with tornadoes… scud, even the word is awful. It's this formation that trails on the end of clouds that is a sign that a tornado is coming your way. I worked with a lady that constantly saw scud out the windows every dang day and would get me all sorts of freaked out. Now every time I hear the word scud, even by my local weatherman, I go red. Thanks for the kinds thoughts and know that there is a downside to so many pets – you spend a ridiculous amount of money on lint roller refills.
