being creative

well, i finally have had somewhat of a creative urge come along. just been playing with a lot of different things. i made these shabby fabric flowers on saturday after i got home from work. i'm having a somewhat hard time as all of my fabric and sewing stuff is still packed from our move 4+ years ago now. so, all i have to work with right now is a few things i have bought since we moved or the few things that did get unpacked or were easy to find.

any way, i had fun making these and want to make some more when i get around to getting my stuff out. i'm not sure how i will be using them yet. they can be used for scrapbooking, pins, sewing, whatever.

what lies beneath

well, what lies beneath is a long sleeping, cold, brown nature. it's time to wake up. a lot of places around have had bare ground for almost a month, but for some reason in our neighborhood it has stuck around. but we had a run of warm weather and it finally started going away. this is what it looked like in front of our deck for several weeks now.

it is time to wake up. you know, we spend countless hours scrapping this stuff up into these piles. but then they get nasty dirty looking and they stay there and stay there. so, i took matters into my own hands. i spent a couple of hours chipping and shoveling it away and found what lies beneath. some sad looking bushes! they need trimming, some food, and some warm sun before they will look like much again.

that little bit of snow melted the next day and left a muddy mess. but for now i see proof of nature at work.

my first blog post

well, i may have finally jumped on the blogging boat. at least i am giving it a try. my blog will be mostly a place for keeping in touch with friends and family. letting them know what is going on in my life. it will also be a place to show all my creations, from photos to scrapbooking to collage to painting to sewing to quilting and what ever else strikes my fancy. you get the idea here. actually it is all about me, LOL.

i'm making no promises here about regularly blogging. it will be hit and miss and probably boring and may not even bear fruit. i am a terrible procrastinator and admit it. i feel that my life is boring so be prepared to be unamazed and to face not always so pretty reality.

so, for what it is worth you have been warned. so here goes. oh, and yes i always type in all lower case.
