Today is the first day of the rest of my blog.......

Hi World!
     Soooo, today I am starting my blog and I am so scaredexcitedhappynervousworriedhopefultickled....that I almost don't know where to start.  Notice I said almost because really, I do know where to start and that is in the "Thank You" aisle of my heart.  Thank you to my husband who totally supports (both emotionally and financially heh-heh) my mad passion to play with paper, colored pencils and glue dots.  Thanks to my lovies Bess, Clarice and Corm who for years have expressed love for and admiration of EVERY SINGLE CARD or HOMEMADE WHATZIT  that mom gave them....no matter how REALLY AWFUL the item looked.  And thanks, yes, really thanks to the online communities of stampers who I know only through my computer but I could never have taken this blogging step without their encouragement, tips and support.  So many people have helped me through these stamping communities with wonderful comments on my little cards and projects.  And, I have loved visiting these people's blogs and getting glimpses into their lives through their creativity that it truly has spurred me on to my own blog.  Yep, I'm taking that big step.  Yikes!  It seems like only a few days ago that I was "hemming and hawwing" to my family about whether I should take the plunge into the HA card pool!  But I did dive in and have loved every minute of it.  So, here is my blog....I hope you like it...and I hope you will be able to stop by from time to time to say Hi!

and p.s.  please be patient while I find  my computer and blogging groove :)

One more reason to keep you, Shelia, in my "very admired" category. You have lots of artistic talents, great communication skills, and vision. Good luck on your new endeavor.

Your crappy crafts sister-in-law.
