OK--so here I go. This is my initial attempt at entering the world of blogging. Or, more correctly, writing in the world of blogging. I have been lurking and reading for several months and finally decided to "take the plunge". It took a long time to start writing because I am a world class procrastinator. I couldn't come up with a concept, so I wasn't doing anything except thinking about blogging. Finally I decided to just start and see what it turns into.
What do I want to write about? I am an avid lover of paper arts--mostly card making. I make greeting cards using rubber stamps and a variety of other materials---someone once said that I would make a card out of anything that wasn't tied down and that pretty much says it in a nutshell. I make my cards under the name of Harpo's Cards. Harpo being the best cat that I ever had. He used to sit with me while I worked in my studio and occasionally walk across my work area with ink on his paws. So in his memory I have paw prints on the back of all of my cards. I guess I strayed from what I want to write about--sorry. I want to use this blog to share pictures of the cards I make and explain the techniques I used to make each card. I am starting a project where I want to try a new card making technique every week and post the cards that result on here.
I will also be writing about random things that occur--or have occurred in my life--books I am reading or books I love, movies I love. Pretty much anything that pops into my head I guess.
I would like to go thru old photographs that I have in a box in the closet and write about what thoughts come to mind as I pull them out and look at them.
I am also on a perpetual diet (who isn't?) and thought that maybe if I started writing about the process that it would keep me honest--or accountable to someone other than me. Guess that would be whoever happens by and reads what I am rambling about that day.
Because I am such a procrastinator, I am not going to commit to writing everyday--that just sets me up for failure. So I am going to just commit to keeping this going--guess that is a pretty good start.
Hopefully someone will read this--if not, a least I am doing something I have wanted to do for a long time.
So, if you happen to find your way here, leave a note--good, bad, or ugly.
