Debut Blog

After long consideration and many hours of experimenting with scrapbooking, making cards and jewelry, drawing, painting, crocheting - you name it, I decided to put my work in one place. If for nothing more than to give me a central location where I can refer back to the products of simple inspirations that whimsically floated by one day.

I'm a fan of VERY few bloggers, primarily because I simply can't seem to find the time to keep up with them. But, the two that I faithfully read, have me mesmerized. I'll share their links in a later post when I get used to this blogging :O) I'm really not sure how I will keep up with my own blog...but I'm willing to give it a try.

I don't think it's following protocol to "dedicate" a blog to someone, but what the heck? I dedicate my first blog to my good friend, Jill Reschke. She is fantastic at keeping in touch with all of her friends...without fail. No excuses, no accusations for not doing the same, and never judging because some friends never send the annual photo of their children (or child in this case). If you're wondering, yes, I definitely receive updated photos of her three children every year plus some!

With that said, I suppose the most appropriate project to share is this card I made for her tonight. Of all my friends and family, Jill was more excited than anyone I've ever given a handmade card to when she received the graduation card I sent her oldest daughter, Cassie. She's too funny. My heart swelled when she went on and on at how neat she thought the card was. I went straight home and made one just for her. Very simple really, and I plagiarized the idea from a magazine...maybe one day I will create something I crafted from beginning to end without stealing someone else's idea :O)
