My New Blog

May 1st 2009

I have just been reading my second issue of Artful Blogging and decided to start my own blog. I have thought about it before but haven't worked up the courage to do it,so...................... here goes!

I have been creating for most of my life. Drawing when I was a child and sewing, doing crafts, decorating my homes, etc., as an adult. I am pretty much self-taught except for sewing classes it high school and the odd art class and craft class. I love most Somerset Studio magazines, Cloth, Paper, Scissors and Quilting Arts and watch demos on Youtube.

The problem is, I haven't done a great deal of my own creating. I have tons of art and sewing supplies but don't do as much as I would like to. So I am hoping by creating a blog, it will encourage me to be more creative and hopefully connect with Leak Piken Kolidas's Creative Every Day blog to help me feel more motivated. It's difficult to create in a vaccum. I don't have any creative friends to share with, so I hope blogging will help with this.


  1. Congrats on starting your new blog!! Woohoo!!

  2. There are some wonderful blogs out there and you will find that there are also yahoo groups as well which focus on particular types of art. I belong to yahoo groups for art journaling and altered postcards. Some blogs have fantastic tutorials or prompts for artists. There is so much out there, finding it is the hard bit! but once you do start making those connections it all starts to come together! Looking forward to geting to know you!
