A little bit about my blog (and me!)…
Elaine’s Lane is a community for inquisitive people with vast interests who want to be entertained, informed and inspired. I am Elaine, and it is so nice to meet you! I’m glad you’re here.
I have many interests, and maybe you do too. I tried to narrow down my categories… I really did! I’ve spent over 30 years talking with my clients one on one about every subject imaginable. These are my niched down topics!
Because I want to help people and not confuse anyone, I’d like to point out a few things. This is a multi topic blog. For me, the tech aspect of creating a blog was challenging. I know a lot about many things, but tech stuff is not my forte. I could have multiple blogs, each with one topic. However, I didn’t want to divert my focus away from writing by maintaining several blogs. One is enough for me!
My blog topics are listed as separate categories. Think of this as a restaurant menu. Select the topics that interest you, and go directly to those categories and indulge in the content!
On the home page, if you hover your cursor over “Blog”, there is a drop down menu. Select the category you want.
You can also use the scrolling carousel to select your category. Under each picture in the carousel, the categories are listed. Select your topic of choice by simply clicking on the carousel picture or category title.
If you’d like to see all the posts from every category, just click on “Blog” and it will take you there.
I also included a little boutique shop where I have my handmade items, as well as skin care products that I carry in my Electrolysis/Esthetician practice. Be sure to check out my Freebie resource library. I have printable pdf’s with helpful tips for you that include all my category items.
My topics are Money, Organizing, Beauty, Creativity, and Genealogy. All the categories do have an overarching theme of organization. It helps to be organized with your money, your craft supplies, genealogy notes… You get the picture!
Just in case you want to know more about me…
My thoughts on Money
Money is not so much an interest as it is a necessity. I find focusing on debt elimination to be fascinating. It seems to apply to more people than talking about saving or investing. I know more about eliminating debt than I do about mutual funds. I would love to share my knowledge about getting out of debt, and staying out of debt with anyone who needs help. Financial freedom is hard to explain; it has to be experienced.
I love genealogy
If I could, I would spend all day snooping into my ancestor’s past. I have to believe I am exactly who I am today because of the mixture of them. Therefore, until time travel is available, genealogy is the best way I’ve found to meet my ancestors who passed long before I was born. If my stories inspire you to dig into your past, I provide resources to facilitate your journey in finding out about long lost family.
feeds my mini compulsions to have everything around me in order. I have some mild OCD issues which have served me well. While my home is not perfect, I do have a place for everything (and everything in its place). I’ve been known to tidy up my friend’s cupboards without them asking… or knowing! I find organizing to be contagious. I hope when you read about my projects and tips, you’ll want to sort through the clutter and enjoy your organized space. I am here to support all your organizing projects by providing a framework to follow, and to cheer you on in your progress!
I am a licensed Electrologist and Esthetician. (Permanent hair removal and skin care.) The best compliments my clients have given me over the years is to tell me that I helped make them feel beautiful. Everyone should feel beautiful, and if I assist in making that happen, I’ve done my job well. I have suggestions to help you look and feel your best.
I’ve recently tapped back into my creative side,
and have been doing more artsy-craftsy things. I derive a great deal of joy in making something with my own two little hands. There has been a direct correlation in my life between creativity and happiness. Truly, the more creative I am, the happier I’ve become. I have all kinds of ideas to help you tap into your creative side. Creativity takes many forms, and we can figure out which form is most fulfilling for you!
I have many more stories to tell. My goal is to entertain, inform and inspire anyone reading my musings about the stuff of life. Please let me know how I can best help you.
I would love to say hello and get to know you too! Sign up for my newsletter, and get instant access to my Freebie resource library, where I have useful tips for all my categories.
