So I've finally gone and done it. After stumbling upon A Month of Softies and Loobylu, then clicking over to Wee Wonderfuls over 6 months ago, I was hooked and totally sucked into blogland. I just keep clicking on those links in the sidebars (must... resist!), and now I'm checking and rechecking about 30 blogs a day. And the list keeps growing. For the most part though, aside from maybe five or six emails and one comment, I've just been a lurker. I felt like I had nothing to offer these people who were sharing so much with me. They couldn't see my crafty ideas, my finished knitting projects, my unfinished quilts, my kids. But now, finally, here I am.
This, by the way, is a direct result of reading all those crafty blogs...! Those of you responsible, and you know who you are, I hope you're feeling properly remorseful. I absolutely don't have room for this! And my checking account is much too light.
Greetingarts is also where I want to record my life, the little things that I'm so afraid I'll forget. The fact that Jessie laughs hysterically, almost maniacally, when you blow lightly into her face. The fact that Becca wants me to call her Rainbow Dash (don't ask) or has spent the whole day milking the fact that she had to get a shot at the doctor's office this morning. Snippets of my life, my moods, my creative ideas. I hope to gain confidence, and I want to remember, record, and share.
