Topic: Welcome to my Blog
Eight years ago today I posted my first entry 'Welcome To My Blog'. Since that date I have posted every single day (sometimes more than one entry) covering mostly arts and crafts with a few other creative endeavors thrown in.
I've done cards of all sorts, remodeling, painting, jewelry, tutorials, gardening, photography, manicures, quilting, sewing, writing, and supplies reviews. I've also taken classes (online and in real life), gone on retreats, shared vacations and experimented in the kitchen.
All of it has been a blast!
Since the inception of this blog I have retired so I have a LOT more time to devote to creative pursuits. The most ambitious new hobby that I have taken on is quilting. It was totally different than anything I had been doing up to that point and I am loving it.
That started 4 1/2 years ago and the quilt I am finishing right now is number 70! That is a LOT of quilting!
I also started contributing to two charities: Quilts which go to our local hospital for dying patients (the family keeps the quilt) and making cards for Operation Write Home which you have heard a LOT about on this blog.
In the future I'd love to do some video tutorials, get a paper craft book published, overhaul my main website and take some beading classes. This fall I will get to take a quilting cruise and I am quite excited about that!
So, stick around - I plan to be here for a long time.
Can I ask a favor? If you read this blog, will you give a comment on this post. No need to share anything specific or make a big statement. Just a 'hi' to let me know I'm not talking to an audience that consists of three family members. LOL!
Seriously, I get maybe one or two comments a year, so anything is appreciated.
Back to regular postings tomorrow.
