Crocheting Again

I started crocheting again today. The local scrapbook store is willing to sell my crocheted flowers. I enjoy using these flowers on projects, but she never stocks any from any of the major companies, so one day I simply taught myself how to make them. Now, I am not a crocheter, my grandma taught me the basic chain stitch when I was a kid, but that's it, so to actually use that and begin crafting something, was pretty amazing. I taught myself how to make 6 different varieties of flowers (and some others along the way that I made once and then couldn't reproduce or that looked hideous in the end and I didn't want to reproduce!). I don't do it as a way to make money, just share my crafting passion!

So what made today a special day?

I started a blog! That's what. And if you have actually been reading this you might say, "no, you started it months ago (maybe even years ago - depends how much backdated material I decide to add)", but nope, today was the day it all really started.

Well now...

A few hours in and I'm feeling like I might actually be able to do this...maybe. Still feels a bit overwhelming, but it's amazing what a makeover a little color and some links can give a blank page.

Getting Started is scary!

I think I might be too old for this whole "blogging" thing... I'm not sure how it all works, but I'm going to give it a shot!
