New blog!

While I loved the style blogging thing last year, my priorities have shifted recently (getting ready for a new baby in 4 months!) and I'm trying to focus more on my family than my wardrobe. I thought I'd be able to transition this blog into more of a lifestyle/mommy blog... but I would rather not plaster a million photos of my babies all over the internet.

I recently came across the blog Crappy Pictures which is a HILARIOUS blog about parenting and motherhood, using drawn stick figures (like my other faves Hyperbole and a Half and The Oatmeal). While I'm not half as funny or witty as any of them, I loved the concept of blogging about motherhood WITHOUT using photographs of the kids, and I decided that I'd go in that direction. (Plus, I can't be a mommy blogger without a fancy camera, RIGHT?)

Since this is such a different subject than what I had going on here, and the intended audience is completely different, it would not make sense to transition Blue Paper Lanterns to a stick-figured mommy blog. SO, I started a new blog, called Stuck on Mommy. I'll be primarily blogging over there, but if something interesting comes up fashion-wise, I'll pop back in here. If you care to follow along with my adventures in parenting, please visit me over here:


Hope to see you guys soon!

  5. Congrats on following this new direction, Kimmie! I am also the mommy of a spunky two year old. I am sure that between the toddler and your new little one, you'll have LOTS of material! While you'll be missed in the fashion arena, it will be great to see what's happening with your little ones. Good luck!!! ~S
