I'm beyond excited right now, I finally found MY BLOG on the internet!!!
Writing a post has been on my mind these past few days, but I was still disappointed in not knowing how to customize anything and I started to get discouraged about not having my blog posted on the internet for everyone to see. I was checking my Myspace and          e-mail before I went to bed and before I got off the computer I just decided to Google my blog and poof there it was! Finally! I'm officially apart of this wonderful blogging world! I just wish I would've checked sooner. Just goes to show never give up on something!   Sweet Dreams Everyone! =]

My Blogging Inspiration!

So I've heard of Blogs before in the past and wondered what the heck they were and what purpose they served. I never paid much attention to them, until July, when I went back home to visit my family. My mother had taken a sewing class, so while I was back home all I did was watch her sew. We went to Joann Fabrics just about everyday, and since I'm my mother's mini me, I too took an interest in sewing. (For the record my mom's the best!) This was the start of my "crafting adventure". When I got back home to the wonderful mountains of Montana I was determined to make myself a craft room. This brings me to my blogging inspiration, Elsie Flannigan. As I was searching the internet for inspiration and ideas for my room, I stumbled upon Red Velvet which is Elsie's website for her store thus leading me to Elsie's Blog, A Beautiful Mess. I absolutely love her art and all of her little creations, there amazing! Her website and blog has inspired me to tap into my creative side and to start my own blog. So thank you Elsie Flannigan for your inspiration and your beautiful art!                                                                                                                             

PS: the best part of it all is my husband and I are taking a road trip to Florida and we have to pass through Missouri, so were gonna take a little detour to visit the Red Velvet Art Shop in Springfield!!! I'm beyond excited and hope to meet Elsie, my blogging inspiration! =]

HTML Challenged!

This is my second post and honestly I didn't think the content of it would be to vent my frustrations about how difficult I'm finding it to customize my blog. I've been at it for most of the day trying to figure out how to add a custom template, but after hours and hours nothing. But the most frustrating and disappointing part is when I search my blog in Google it doesn't even come up. I even e-mailed Mrs. Tara Frey in hopes she could help me out. By the way her book Blogging for Bliss is wonderful. Hopefully I get a response back, though I'm sure she's super busy. Dear God please help me!!!

Happy New Year to a New Beginning!

Happy New Year to everyone out there in this fabulous blogging world! I'm so proud of myself for accomplishing one of my many goals for the New Year, starting a blog. I've been anxiously waiting to start since the beginning of December '09 but had this crazy notion I should wait 'till January 1st, 2010. So here it is my very first blog, and post. Can't wait to see what becomes of my it and the New year. Let's hear it for 2010!
