Just a little bit slow to catch up...

12:51 PM

Back in my school days, I was always referred to as 'sheltered'. My ever-so-encouraging classmates commented quite regularly that I was not 'up to speed' with the things of the world. But you know what? I never really cared. So what if I was a little slow to experience or know about things that the others had?! Quite frankly, all they were talking about didn't sound appealing to me anyway.

Only now that I have entered into the world of 'blogging' do I regret being a little slow on the uptake. I am having a fantabulous time looking up blogs, delving into the creative lives of others and stimulating my creative mind. I am totally hooked to the point that I think I may need to attend 'Bloggers Anonymous' if I'm not too careful (not that there is such a group and even if there was, I doubt it would help anyway!)

I have freqently heard of blogs and knew what they were and even stumbled across a few while searching up on various topics, but never did I think to look up any along the lines of my interests. It wasn't until I watched the movie Julie & Julia, did I think, 'Wow, maybe I could set myself a challenge and blog about it'. What would I do? Umm...

  • how many garments/items can I knit in a year?
  • A Page a Day (my endeavour to complete unfinished scrapbooking projects)
  • Make Op-Shop quilts for a year - only use materials bought from op-shops/second-hand stores
  • Dressmaker's Course - my journey through learning to sew like a pro!
  • 101 days of my life - a photographic memoir

My brain was whirling with possibilities and concepts. This set me off looking up crafty, arty-farty blogs that I could relate to. I knew that there was ALOT of bloggers out there but I am just totally bamboozled with all the good stuff I can read from people like me who are crazily addicted to all that is crafty and creative. I felt rather insignificant. Any blog I wrote would probably get completely lost in this array of choices. But hey - you're reading it so please come back and see what I come up with to post every day or so! I haven't actually set myself a challenge of any sort but do hope to set small challenges for myself every now and then that I will blog about so keep reading! You might actually get something out of it for yourself!!

With sprinkles of sunshine...
