And so it begins...

I've been intrigued by blogs for a long time. As a scrapbooker, I've been reading the blogs of many of the famous designers and personalities in the industry and I've gradually developed a daily list of "must check in withs". I even have a few friends who have taken the plunge, all of them telling me how easy it is and encouraging me to join the ever increasing number of people who have taken to publishing their daily thoughts, life moments, and personal insights for the world to see.

That alone should scare me off but with all the awareness of a deer caught in the headlights, unable to move - I'm bolding going where (if I had any sense, I wouldn't) gone before. I'll worry about not only what I write, but how I write it. I'm a stream of nonsense, I mean conscience writer and therefore, my grammar will probably suffer. I'm also wondering why in the world I want to open my life to ANYONE who may link to this blog.

Whoever said scrapbooking is cheaper than therapy never scrapbooked a page in their life. I'm thinking that all those who have told me that creating a blog would be easy and painless may be of the same mindset. I can see this blog taking the place of therapy and as it's being broadcast over the web, it may turn out to be just as expensive, if in a different way.

I can't see me sticking to scrapbooking as all I write about so beware, you may be subjected to the rest of my life - and it ain't always pretty! So now that I've gone on for about three paragraphs more than I initially intended, please sound the trumpets, this is the official beginning of my blog.

I hope you enjoy, feel free to comment and Tracy and Sharon...you asked for it!
