Why do I want to have a Blog then ?

Shimelle asked us to consider why we have joined the course & why we are wanting to have a blog in the first place ?

It took me a while to think it over but I have come up with a few thoughts ... !

I think one key reason is that I get a great deal of pleasure out of preserving my memories - both the process of doing this and later. I like to take out my memories like treasures from a box & re-examine them & I find this reminising a positive thing for me.

I enjoyed keeping a daily diary when I did the Learn Something New Everyday course in September & although I doubt I shall blog everyday I thought a blog might be a good way to keep a diary,

Having no technical nouse whatsoever I thought the course would be a great way to learn HOW to do this with the great notes from Shimelle & the support of all the other people on the course too !!

On choosing to include my Crafting as a key part of my blog - well I love dabbling in all sorts of crafts and having moved on from quilting & embroidery I am now a keen scrapbooker and am dabbling in altering things & stamping. But although I love all the paint & ink & creating something from nothing I do struggle once it is done with - well what to do with it now !! I have been encouraged to find all these other girls out there who are happily crafting away too !! I am hoping that my blog will be a place to get comfortable in my crafty skin !!
