Small Blog Meet Post
"What is this?!" you might ask, "TWO posts in a day???"
Well, to answer your question, this morning I was doing my regular thing of reading through all of the blogs on my feed and I came across the Small Blog Meet at the Lily's Quilts blog and decided to join in since I'm always looking for new bloggy friends, so an additional post was needed.
The history of my blog is this: I decided back in March to start blogging. I've always made stuff and people always ask me about how I did it, so I thought I'd simplify things and make a blog where I could just post all of the pictures and the process in one place so that people could look at them and think "oh, how pretty is that?
Well, I ran into a few problems:
The first is that I'm NOT GOOD at taking pictures of things in-progress. I'll make something and realize that I didn't take any pictures of it while I made it.
The second problem is that I'm just not very good at taking photos. We have a big fancy camera and yet I still get blurry yellow pictures that don't show off what I make.
Third, I'm really BUSY. There's a stint in my blog where I went from one vacation to another to an out of town job to moving to another vacation, and what I ended up with was no posts at all in June and July and only two in August.
But I'm back now with a newly designed blog and a new name, and I'm getting back into the swing of things. I plan on posting about my finished hexi journal cover tomorrow, as well as my journal itself, and I hope to have some progress to show you on the chenille blanket I'm working on as a birthday gift for my uncle.
Anyways, thanks for reading, feel free to look around, and thanks for visiting my blog!
