Post #1

So here it is, my blog. 

I can be obsessive about things and right now my number one obsession is cards.  I love to make cards, and with Christmas approaching it will soon be time to start mailing holiday cards to family and friends.

I usually start making cards some time in August so that I can take my time getting my cards ready.  This year, however, fall snuck up on me and I didn't start crafting on this year's lot until October.  In a panic I have been madly working away on my creations until I recently realized I am approaching 100.

This is about the number I work toward each year, so now I am thinking about what I should do next.  I think I will start to work on birthday cards for next year, because after Christmas I tend to take a bit of a break from cardmaking.  In the meantime, however, I've had the glimmer of another idea.

When making cards I tend to make several  of the same type at the same time, usually between 2 and 6 depending on the occasion, and I have gotten into the habit of taking a picture of each type so that I remember what I've done.  That way if I'm stuck I can go through what I've done before and maybe gain some inspiration.  I've always had it in the back of my mind that I should make a folder on facebook for these pictures, but that never worked out.  So this year I got the idea that I should start posting on a blog.  That way I can have a venue to display what I've done, a place to record how I did it, and maybe I'll get a little feedback too.

I also do a little cross stitch, and I have been known to sew and cook, so I thought it might be fun to post about those things too.

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing how this blog progresses, but right now its late and its time to go to bed, so I will start posting things tomorrow.  Night all!
