I guess tea is a good place to start!

I say that tea is always a good idea.  So here is some tea while I put a blog plan together.  Please pour yourself some and come back often and stay awhile.

Welcome Back!

So here I am again.  I guess I can not stay away.  I love reading other people’s blogs and having one of my own.  I guess that is why I am back.  I had a tough year last year and did not feel like I could give anything to the blogging community.  I am very happy to put 2010 behind me and welcome a new year.  I am excited about 2011!  It too is going to be a challenging year but these are challenging times for many. 

Although I have been away from blogging I have not been away from creating.  I am doing a lot of knitting and crocheting right now.  I find it very therapeutic.  I joke that it is cheaper than therapy! But it is actually not a joke, it is real.  Anyway, thanks for following and being patient with me as I make my way back into the blogging community.  My blog will focus on my creations as well as my ramblings.  I hope that you enjoy.

My First Tutorial & So Much More!

Well, my blog is coming right along. It has taken me hours to figure most of this stuff out, kinda trial and errors, way more errors than anything else.  But now my blog has music (working on the song, one thing at a time), I have my first tutorial done (check out the link on the right!), figured out how to put pictures in my sidebar with links! Ok, this might not seem like much, but please remember I am a crafter not a nerd! Well, now I guess I a little bit of a nerd.  Well, onto my next project. Thanks for stopping by!

Where have you been?

Again, another long absence!  I have been sick!  I know, excuses, excuses, but it is true, and not only have I been sick but so has every other member of the house.  So now I am better, but I am playing nursemaid.  I am dying to get back to my crafting, so many projects, so little time.  I made a list of projects going on right now and I there are 12 projects that I need to get done.  I am determined to get them all done and one thing that helps me stay on track is blogging.

My First Comment!

I have not been blogging very long and there is still so much to learn.  I did receive my first comment! I am so excited.  My first comment was from Lori .  Lori will be getting a gift from me (can’t tell you what it is, she loves surprises). Lori has also agreed to be my blog mentor/helper.  I am really thrilled to have someone in the community to help me out.  Thanks again Lori.
