Accepting Help is Key! After hitting my head against a wall, over and over again; I finally flung up a white flag and posted on a group asking for some assistance. Blessed within minutes by a call from one of the group telling me that she would be happy to help out. Pride will keep us from achieving our goals if we are not careful. This blog is something I had been planning for a year now, doing research, watching tutorials and workshops; making notes..blah..blah..blah…Try as I might, I just could not connect some of the dots; in reality, lots of dots were missing from what was necessary and I just did not know it. Many thanks to Merri Dennis of Caring Hands, she got me off and running and now all I have to do is think of what to say. Click on her link and check out her blog on blogging. Even if you are not a creative (I would argue with you about that) she can help you set up a blog for whatever your voice is.
Now back to what to say…what was I thinking? Until this moment I had so many thoughts on different blog post ideas, arrgghhhh, can’t find a single one right now other than to tell you a little bit about myself. I am old, really old; at least that is what I have been told by some of the kids at church. Of course to them anyone over the age of 12 is old, so honestly I am really, really old. I love the Lord and have trusted his son Jesus most of my life, I know that he has been with me even when I stepped away or rejected his plan or I would not have survived to this ripe old age. I love my children and grands more than I can say, they are so special to me. I also love art like mixed media, gelli plate, oil painting, watercolor, acrylic painting, crafts and photography so you will see lots of posts about those topics around the posts about my grands..ha! I am not a professional at any of them but I love learning new things and sharing info, tips and ideas with others. I have taken a few classes but other than that I am self taught. Sign up for my email notification and you will stay up to date on all the tips and tricks as I post them. Let me know if you have a question, great idea or tip on art or photography, as I said I love to learn more about those things. Check out my art here and my full photography gallery here. My gallery tab above will take you to my 2015 Daily Posts, a somewhat daily view of my life via photography. Please feel free to comment on the photographs.
Footnote..my original liftoff date was March 1 and that got pushed back to April 1…and so without further ado at 11:45 pm..I am uploading my 1st blog post!!
