To celebrate I thought it would be fun to share my first post ever. It kind of makes me giggle when I read it. I was so silly to be so worried about blogging. Everyone has been so sweet and welcoming. And I never thought in a million years that blogging would give such a boost to my confidence as a person, a mom, a crafter, and dare I say a writer. Nor did I think I would "meet" people who would become life long friends. So here you go. My first post ever...
My happy place in cyberspace
Ha ha!! Not sure I have given myself a break or fixed my procrastination problem but I definitely have connected with people. 243 plus people to be exact. Wow! I know that so many other bloggers that started the same time as me or even after have about 5 times as many followers. But I am blown away that there are 243 people who want to hear what I have to say! Crazy!
OK. *deep breath* Here. We. Go.
Can you tell I'm a little nervous? I would be lying if I said I loved writing. It's not that I hate writing, I just don't think I'm that good at it so... I am stepping out of my comfort zone and doing it anyway! What I do love is sharing, talking, and connecting with people. I am just going to be me and enjoy my happy place in cyberspace. When visiting my blog I want you to feel like you've stopped by to see a friend for a cup of coffee (yum...) and a chat. :-)
So why a craft blog?
Well I started sewing this year on my late grandma G's simplicity sewing machine. I went online for sewing help and stumbled on some craft blogs which linked me to other craft blogs and so on....I was in heaven and hooked. I felt like I was finely honing in on my passion in life. After lurking for the past year, I thought why not give it a shot? It was the perfect combination of my love of crafts and connecting with people.
I say I am a Jane of all crafts because I can't get enough. I love trying new things. I have about a gazillion projects that I have started but have yet to finish. My hopes is to use this blog as my motivation to get crackin' on my to do list and to share my adventures along the way. I'm a perfectionist, which is a blessing and a curse. I can be pretty hard on myself and tend not to finish things or sometimes even start if everything isn't going just so. On the flip side when things are "just so" I put all my heart into it and am usually quite pleased with the outcome. I hope that this is a place where I can find some balance and give myself a break once and awhile.
If anyone is actually reading this, thanks so much for coming by! Stay tuned!
So thanks to all of you for following along while I stumble my way through this blogging adventure. You guys are what keeps me wanting to write, craft, crack jokes, etc. Thanks for all your support, humor, and most of all love. Big virtual hugs to you all. Or for you non-hugger types, high fives!
And I thought I would leave you with a little known and a favorite of mine blog post. First a little back story :D
I love to make people laugh, not sure if I am that successful but I crack myself up. And what I find hysterical most find a little juvenile. Whatevs, talk to the hand. ;) I was taking pics of these hand painted pilgrims and for some reason the idea to make a little skit popped in my head. I swear I was not drinking. I am like this sober.
Ladies and gents, I give you Puritan Humor...
I thought I was so clever. Actually I still do. Maybe a sequel this November???
