I'm joining the blog world. I've decided that I need a place that I can keep track of all my projects. I have numerous hobbies and really should just focus on one, but that would be like picking which child is my favorite. I just can't do it. I've dabbled in just about everything and if I haven't tried it then you can bet I will in the future. On my list of things I currently like to do is.... paint, sew, knit and card making. I've dabbled in stain glass, jewelry, ceramics, quilting, scrapbooking and calligraphy. On my list of things I'd like to learn how to do is welding, I know what your thinking, but I think it would be cool to make things out of metal. The problem with having this many hobbies is that I'm running out of space in my house to store things and to actually sit down and do them. My dining room is my current location where I paint and sew. I have a great Herman and Miller table with a formica surface so my paint comes right off if I accidentally make a mess which is often. It would probably be smarter if I used my easel, but I typically only use it for large scale paintings. I would love to have a studio to work in so I can contain the mess, but such is life. I'm hoping to get a post up of a project that I recently finished for my niece in the next few days. Stay tuned.
