First Post

Ever since my husband sent me off for a mini vacation to Anaheim (CKU), I've found myself having an "itch" to be creative. I've always been a collector (of paper, how-to books, etc. ), but now my computer is overflowing with bookmarks of photography & scrapbooking blogs....and I've always liked to make a handmade card every now and then, but now I find myself looking at everything and wondering if I can alter it.

I've always had lots of ideas in my head, but I can never get started on all of them, because... well, I'm chicken. My friends, I'm sure, think that I suffer from Scrapbibliophobia... (if that's a word)
BUT lately I've been grabbing my camera and driving my kids nuts by taking tons of photos... and I found that I really ENJOY taking photos... and I'm getting better with practice.

I also discovered that I really enjoy the process because it's SAFE for me. I don't have to stare at a blank piece of paper and worry where to start & I don't have to wonder why it takes me an hour (++++) from start to finish. I love that if I don't like something, I can just delete it (no $$$ wasted!).

So here's the thing~~~ I want to get that way with all of my creative endeavors. I want to paint on all of those canvases and alter all of those books that my husband doesn't know about. I want to learn all sorts of techniques and learn how to let go.. and enjoy the process. I'm thinking that if I surround myself & my thoughts with creative, artistic people I'm bound to get inspired, right?

Well, here goes...My little blog, dedicated to my journey...
