Vacation time!

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

After an absolutely insane week, we are finally packed and ready to go on our Idaho camping adventure! I have never been more ready to disappear into the mountains than I am right now. I’ve been thinking a lot about travel both as we planned this trip and trips over both of the holidays this […]

The Three Minute Update!

Monday, September 1st, 2008

It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I blogged (5 days, seriously?!!?!), it’s time for me to go to bed, and I don’t even want to think about all the posts I need to stock-pile this week to keep you entertained while I’m on vacation next week! So I’ll be quick and start tomorrow (which, […]

It’s about time!

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

After a series of rather ridiculous attack ads questioning Barack Obama’s credentials and patriotism, and even going so far as to compare him to the vapid Paris Hilton (although I could almost kiss her for her response to McCain’s ad, I’m happy to see Barack Obama striking back with some hard-hitting ads of his own.

A new look!

Monday, July 7th, 2008

Well, things are looking a bit different around ChezArtz as of about an hour ago, and I must say it’s about time! I was getting really tired of the two-column layout and finally decided it needed to go. I wouldn’t call this the “final” version of the redesign, more like a stage 1 to buy […]

E is for Excellent!

Monday, April 21st, 2008

My pal–and devoted reader–over at Woman with a Hatchet has bestowed an award upon ChezArtz and it is time for me to pass it on. Blogging is something that I’ve been thinking a lot about recently as I expanded from  just ChezArtz to Toys, Naturally and GreenArtz, then to BlogHer and now, I’m happy to […]

Don’t let the computer rule (ruin?) your life!

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

I’m in internet junkie. I’m an email junkie. My name is Julie Artz and I am an addict. Seriously. I get that prickly uncomfortable feeling when I know there are emails in my Inbox that I haven’t read or responded to. I ignore everything around me when I’m absorbed in whatever I’m doing on the […]

Green Give Away

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

If you’re into green cleaning products (and if you aren’t, you should be!), check out my pal’s giveaway this week: I hope I win because I’ve had to declare a moratorium on new cleaning products until I use up what I have around the house, which may take about 100000 years 😉

Navigating the Uncharted (or Overcharted?) Terrain of Social Media Sites

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

A slightly different version of this post appears on BlogHer. A few of you have commented on the recent surge in posts here on ChezArtz–I have been a blogging fiend in 2008 so far. Part of this is just because I didn’t post much this past fall due to our move, a crazy work schedule, […]
