we’re moving

by Travelingmama on October 12, 2010

These are words that you might have come accustomed to hearing from our Tribe, but this time we are not traveling to a new country or even a new city.  Instead we are just moving all of our Traveling Tribe posts over to our newly merged blog: Flying House by Traveling Mama.  Now, before you think my Traveling Man has jumped ship, let me assure you that he is the magical glue that keeps these blogs afloat.  He works tirelessly behind the scenes with all the technical details… because all that were up to me these blogging ships would have sunk years ago!  He also contributes the greatest majority of the photos to both sites and we really wanted to free up more of his time to do what he loves the most: travel and take photos. And I get to do what I love… write my heart out and converse with friends from every corner of the globe!

So, we are simplifying things and at the same time combining our forces of creativity… which we like to think has always made us stronger.  Watch out world!  There is a new Flying House on the block!

But, wait, there is more!  I also wanted to let you know that our blog will still be here.  The archives, which truly feel like an old friend to us, will likely be referenced often and will remain for you to catch up on all the years of blogging from our Traveling Tribe.  We wouldn’t want a friend to feel as though she has not had a proper farewell, so we thought a little giveaway was in order.  To one lucky winner we are giving one gift, but you get to choose: a photo valuing up to $20 or a box of mixed craft supplies valuing at $20.  It’s pretty simple.  Go to the new Flying House by Traveling Mama blog and come back here and leave a comment.  For another chance to win, subscribe to the new Flying House by Traveling Mama blog and come back here to let us know in the comments.  For one more chance to win, make a purchase in either of our new shops, Flying House Studios or Handmade by Traveling Mama, and come back here to leave a comment.  We’ll announce the winner on Friday, October 15th.

So, tell us!  What do you think?

Sounds like a good ‘move’. It is all still there but just in one place – makes sense to me and gives you more time. Win – win! Congratulations

Love the name of your new blog. I think it is only natural to have one site. It will be interesting to see how you merge your craft love with sharing style, travel and family adventures. I almost feel like we should break a bottle of champagne to give your new blog a good send off.
