I can spend hours sometimes just admiring the end products of the talented people within the crafting and art community. Most of this is done on the PC/laptop these days; lots of open tabs on a single screen replacing the mound of open books or torn paper bookmarks on the desk or tabletop. The blog is in some cases replacing the diary and is also becoming the creative persons portfolio.
A fairly common thing I have noticed on the blogs I read is that numerous readers/followers say how much they 'wish they could do that' or they hope to 'be that good one day'. Well that was me for a long time with regards to just starting a blog. Two dear friends and extremely talented ladies, Sue Wilson and Dena Concienne have encouraged me on numerous occasions to get a blog started, but unfortunately health slowed me down. Well here it is at last, a bare bones of a blog, but I am going to learn and then see where this wonderful new journey takes me. Thank you to both of you for all your encouragement, you had belief in me even though we had never met and I will never forget your kindnesses and thoughtfulness.
To start my blog off with a bit of a celebration, I am going to offer some candy for when I reach my first 20 followers. I love to make Decorative Stick Pins and I crochet lace also, so I thought I would make up my first candy from them. I have taken a picture of a sample of my pins, but unfortunately my photography leaves a lot to be desired. At the moment my camera has no lead (can't find a replacement anywhere, will be writing to the manufacturer) and in the mean time, the camera I am using is so old it shakes more than me! I promise I will make my photos a top priority.
Well I hope I haven't bored you with only words for my first blog, but I do hope you will pop by and have a chat now and again. I have a lovely card to show tomorrow in honour of Sue Wilson, it is my first Case card and it is of Sue's Parisian in Teal card.Have a good day everyone.
