Meet the new Capturing Joy Team

Ok friends, I’m going to level with you. This was a HARD decision for me to make to add contributors to my site. It is, after all called Capturing Joy with KRISTEN DUKE! I take joy in this little spot on the web, I share and curate posts that come from my heart, and is in a sense part of my life’s journal, so taking on others to share ideas on a regular basis has never super interested me. I’ve had some people contribute here and there, but never anything very consistant. I have a long list of ideas to share, topics to talk about, recipes to make, projects to do, stories to tell, and even with all of my kids in school this year, there is simple NOT ENOUGH TIME to do it all as I want to!  I want this place to be a great resource of things that women in my stage of life might enjoy doing with their families, and I just want great content.

Once I get an idea in my head, I jump in with both feet. I decided I wanted to add contributors when my blogger friends were in town, and the day they left, I sent out a call for help, and got an influx of excitement, and selected these gals that day!

I have found that I’ve been sharing 3-4 posts each week (if I’m lucky), so now I’ll still keep sharing that much, but there will be MORE!  I’m very excited about this great group of women, and I am working closely with them on each post they will share, to make sure it has my stamp of approval on it. There will be recipes, crafts, holiday fun, photo tips, and printables. It will just be a grab bag of fun.

Part of what encourages other bloggers to be a contributor is the exposure to their site that might be new-er, or just seeking an extended audience. I’d like to invite you all to click over to their sites, and see what they have to offer, and follow along if you like what you see. You can follow their sites through a daily/weekly newsletter, Pinterest, or Facebook, or all. Whichever is a place you like to see goodness. I like the email option, because then I know I’ll see it. Pinterest and Facebook, you just don’t see everything.

Likewise, if you’d like to follow Capturing Joy by daily email or weekly newsletter, check out those options on my sidebar, or social media in the top right corner of this site (click on the icon of the media you use the most).

Enough of all that, let me introduce you to the team!  3 of them will share something each week, generally a recipe, a printable, and then a DIY/craft project.

Here is the Capturing Joy Team!!
