...when I started blogging, awhile back, I had no idea where I wanted to go or what kind of blog I wanted to have. My first experience with blog was through Caringbridge and I knew that, as wonderful as that experience was, I didn't want a health-only blog. Yeah sure, it's a big part of my life but it's not all there is to me.
Would I ever be a cooking blog? I really couldn't see myself going in that direction. I don't mind cooking in fact, I rather enjoy it but I am a person who does a little of this and a little of that and viola! I never really do the same thing twice and I'm really not one to follow a recipe so needless to say...a baker, I am not.
Could I be a photography blog? No, and that's about all I can say...I just don't have the eye for it BUT I am learning and reaching for new things so, in that way, I am growing but I'm not quite ready for prime time.
How about a gardening blog? Have you seen my garden lately? I'm not sure you could even find it with all the leaves and branches that are still down from last fall, that and the moss that has taken over my yard will be torturous work this spring. I do have visions of a cutting garden this year and have gone about the buying of bulbs and seeds. I have even convinced the hubs that I need a new raised garden bed for this fabulous, wondrous garden. Well, yeah.
Next up...decorating blogs. Oh my. It didn't take me long to navigate my way over to the decorating blogs...not the House Beautiful types but the DIY'ers. I have found some amazingly talented bloggers out there who can turn trash to..well you know, to something you would actually want to try and then hang on a wall! There it is...easy as pie, I found my passion. And after two years of stalking these creative ladies I have finally decided to jump in and make some changes to my home.
After all: I have a craft room albeit a little messy...
and I've got frames and candlesticks just waiting to be painted and distressed...
...sadly, I've got pepto colored walls that need to be painted and decorated...
Oh, and I've got bulbs that need to be planted...any takers??
So there you have it...I'm gonna do stuff and you get to come along for the ride. Good or bad, fail or not, you all get to hold my feet to the fire and keep me going...otherwise I'm gonna have to bake something!
