Par-tay! Blog style

When I turned the big 5-0 last December, I had no idea what a crazy year I would have. Blogging plays an important part in keeping me sane!

I started my blog over a year before the big birthday.
Thinking , " I am a big girl now. I can do this. " Then my blog just sat there. Waiting for the perfect post. Waiting and waiting. Instead of posting, I was a blog stalker. Several of my friends had wonderful, perfect blogs. I wanted mine to be just like theirs. Well, perfect never comes if we don't jump in and try. As I started posting, my business began to bloom. My creative spirit was being released. New relationships were being born. I was inspired.
The above collage is the first image I posted. Once I took the leap, I was hooked!

When I Blog I like to share:
What I create...

and special sales...

Where I create...

Where you can find me... and much, much more!

Blogging and blissful,

Oh I so want to come back so bad. I keep thinking about all the things I left behind when I was there. Just wish all the cool places weren't so far from me, well not really that far I've done a lot of day trips. I'll just have to plan another one. Have a great day, T

I reckognize that uncertainty: why cannot I blog like...create like.. be like... Well you gave the answer yourself; just jump into it, be yourself and before you know you might not have the perfect blog, but you are blogging for bliss, that's the most important.
Nice to meet you! Have a great day!
