I am new to this whole "blog" thing. Well as a doer. I have been reading random blogs for quite a while.
I have been bitten by the craft bug once again in my life. What brought this on? I'm not sure I have been searching for something to fill a void in my life for a few years now. I haven't been the same since I lost my mother at the way to young age of 61 that was in Dec 2007. My daughter is now well into her teens (15) and doesn't need me as much anymore and once she drives in 2 years will need me even less! *sigh*
So Anywayyyyy... I have decided that even though I have been "collecting" scrapbook supplies for years and only made 3 pages...lol, that it's ok (I have been blaming in on not having any "work" space) it's not a lost cause! I am going to scrapbook my photos and memories. I love taking pictures of my "people" and am very rarely found without my camera at a function or gathering or party or trip to the beach. I am going to make cards since I usually have to run out and pick up a card before a party anyway I can just make one at home so much easier! I am going to crochet a blanket for my daughter who felt a little neglected (she is so NOT) when she found out I made one for my girlfriend's daughter when she was born, you know when I was single and didn't have a child of my own and everyone was having boys (who I LOVE) but she was the first girl! I also painted her a piggy bank, cross stitched her a pillow (counted NOT stamped) and probably a few other things that aren't around anymore...lol. SO I will crochet my girlie a blanket she can keep forever...she is the apple of my eye, the love of my life, my most important reason for being. What else will I do? I will use the patterns I have had for well over a year and make those handbags I knew we would love and well probably anything else that catches my eye... Oh yes I forgot I have been making jewelry! Well making bracelets and anklets and watch bands. Of course this started out of not only randomness but ,also, necessity I am a "Fluffy" girl and it is down right difficult to find cute things that fit the fluffiness of me. :o) Now you understand a little of the randomness of my craftiness. I can't walk into the craft store without wanting to do a millions things! Take cake decorating classes, Make a flower arrangement, do crafts with the kiddies, tie dye a shirt! I am overwhelmed by it all. So now I will blog about it...share a picture or two or thousand...lol. And who knows maybe if I work hard enough I will decide to go to those crafts fairs and sell my wares or maybe sell some "handmade by" things here online... The Possibilities are Endless... My mother would encourage me if she were still here with us. She would tell me to do it! try it! you'll love it! So maybe with my little angel on my shoulder (my mom) I will do it, try it, love it! What do you think? Should I?
