What's on your fridge?



Hi, my name is Debbie and I am very excited about this blog. This is my first posting so I thought I would try to explain what the name means. I named my blog "On the Refrigerator Door" because I think what is on your refrigerator door says alot about you. I always love to see what people put on their refrigerator doors.


I love to travel, but spend most of the time sitting at a desk. All my traveling started many years ago. I went to Israel when I was 14 and since then I haven't been able to stop traveling. I studied in Krakow, Poland in architecture school for a semester and worked in New Zealand for a year after I graduated. I have also traveled around Europe, Australia, Asia and stepped into Africa for a day.

Since I love all these places that I have been to, but can’t be there now I love to look at photographs from my trips. I try to capture these places in photographs and then surround myself with them. They are all over my desk at work, my house and even on my refrigerator door.


Most people’s refrigerator doors are full of memories with photos from trips, family, friends or children’s artwork. You can get a glimpse into someone’s life by looking at their refrigerator. You can even get a glimpse of someone’s personality by the way their refrigerator doors are kept especially if there is nothing on the doors at all!!


In addition to the photos on my fridge I also have my own handmade magnets. I started making my own magnets about a year ago. I made a large magnet board for an odd shaped wall and couldn't find any magnets that I liked. I started my Etsy shop called Shana’s Shop in August 2008 to sell these magnets and other things that I make.


What's on my refrigerator right now? Well, last July I went to Alaska with my family. My younger brother had been working there and wanted us all to experience it too. We were there for a week, but we all want to go back and see more. I still have photos and postcards from Alaska on my fridge because it was so beautiful there.



Thanks for reading my blog to learn a little bit about me.

I LOVE IT . . . great job! Baxter is fine, but no ring yet. Have a wonderful weekend; can't wait to see what your blog looks like by Monday morning!

Also love it! The pics are great also. I need the one with the cute little sea lions, or otters?

What a great name...I took a class in naming your business once and the main idea was to say what it is you do. The refrigerator door is always a great place to get a glimpse of people and their lives, their dreams, their adventures.

I de-clutterred mine awhile back, as you made me the magnet board (Which I adore!), and this is like an extended frdge, right in the foyer! This way everyone can see all the moments, and the magnets.

Will c heck back soon. Have a great weekend!
Love,
Linda

Hi Debbie!

I'm having a blogwarming party on my blog and one of the activities is a scavenger hunt to encourage my readers to visit links in my blogroll. Since your blog is one of my own regular reads, of course, you're in my blogroll.

I'd like to invite you to participate in the scavenger hunt - it could bring some traffic and new readers to your site, as well. Full details are in a blog post I buried in my blog at: http://adventuresofpamandfrank.blogspot.com/2008/06/scavenger-hunt-invitation.html

Thanks!

Great post. The fridge door is very telling thinking back to my time at uni and i seemed to be the only person who had stuff on their fridge door. It all reflected my personality.

great idea for a blog name i love it!

What a creative idea! It's true what you say about refrigerator doors- they can reallly tell a lot about a person. Mine right now has a lot of lists on it, but you've inpsired me to put up some beautiful pictures!

Hi Debbie :-)
Thank you for being the first ever person to comment on my blog. It is very special to me!
Anyway, this is a comment on YOUR post! :-)
I love looking at what people have on their fridge doors. Mostly because I am nosey, but also as you say, because it is a little window n their life and what is important to them. Shall I send you a picture of my fridge door?! If you show me yours I'll show you mine!
I look forward to reading more of your blog and finding out about what's on your fridge door!

Hmm interesting thought just what does it mean if your refrigerator door is clean!!! Umm I just partially cleaned mine off because I also made some magnets similar to your actually and I wanted to get rid of my old daggy ones. So my fridge doors are a little bare at the moment. Welcom to blogging, I am new too about the same as you I guess. Only I have 3 now. I have one for a trip we were on and so its kind finished now and two for me time. Great to meet you. Just looooove this blogging.
