22nd February 2016
Starting at the beginning is always a difficult task, but do we really start at the beginning or just join in middle when life is in full swing?
I have wanted to blog for over 10 years, I finally took my self to Abbotsford Convent yesterday and attended a Blogging course by the Australian Writers’ Centre, the best advice I got was to
“stop worrying about he details and just get started”
I’m starting today, frustrated after an hour of trying to get a photo up loaded (it was too big!) and concerned that I have not turned on all the plug ins or widgets, or whatever it is that I am supposed to do, oh yeah, I’m not supposed to worry about all of that!
I’m encouraged by this little tombstone I found in the Abbotsford grounds:-
I think that just about sums up where I am leaving 2015 and stepping into 2016. “Should’s” are going to be buried from this day forward, It’s time to step out and do the things I have always wanted to do. Why don’t you be brave with me today?
What will this blog be about, well its gonna be all about me! I love Art; mixed media, painting, watercolour, jewellery and a little drawing, Craft; card making, stamping, scrapbooking, and I have also been known to knit, crochet, and when my eyes weren’t so weary a lot of hours under a daylight lamp doing tapestries. I am a full time Carer and have been reluctantly drawn into the long falling rabbit warren of Mental Illness, I have a decaying body and many unexplored dreams that need to be dusted off the shelf.
It’s time to open that box that we keep sacredly closed and share what’s inside.
