Friday, May 13,  2016 / Video Post Notes:

Recently I’ve received quite a few requests to do a “monthly favorites” video series.  I like the idea, and watch them occasionally myself on YouTube.  So I’ve decided to start a “Favorites” series, and publish a video whenever I feel I’ve found one or more persons, places, or things I’m truly excited about.  Who knows, it might even end up (occasionally) to be monthly.  I’m leaving myself open!

This video happens to be items I think are pretty or useful, and in some cases are both. The series won’t always be that category.  It just so happens I filmed this video before I got the requests to begin a favorites series.  Those of you who’ve been with me a while know how much I love pretty and useful things!

If you have any categories you’d like me to consider for the series, please let me know.  I would love to hear from you. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
