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.
