New Years Day Launch

I have decided to launch my crafting blog today. It is a work in progress and will be for a while. Blogs are constantly changing and evolving kind of like life and art. So this one will be changing also, but it will be a slow process because I am new to blogging and I just don't know how to use this darn thing or all of it's features.

Sooooo, with that being said if you are reading this and you are good at blogging and you would like to help me out. We could do a trade for the initial set up of my blog. I am looking for someone to just do the initial design set up like the background, the graphics the basic layout of where the links will be, the advertisements and so on. So contact me if you are interested. (

Well you are probably wondering who I am and what I do at this point.
My name is Ann and I do lot's of different things. I am currently a crafter amongst other things. I am looking to focus more on my crafts and increase my sales. I would love to build my business into a full part-time business and then from there into a full time business if it's possible.

I have a shop on to sell my handmade/handcrafted items. I do mostly crochet but some other crafts as well. Right now I have several crocheted items available and some wonderful paper gift bags from the holidays.

I just wish I could list more more often. It just seems like it takes me forever to do anything or get anything done sometimes. I guess it's because life just has attendancy to get in the way.

Well let's get back on track here. I do that sometimes, go off on little side notes but I always seem to get back on track eventually. Hopefully you will find it entertaining or it will give you a little something to think about like it does for me. I hope I don't come accross as negative at anytime that is not my intention.
My intention is to just share my thoughts about crafts, art and sometimes life. Most of my posting will be related to crafts,art and my daily experiences related to crafting & the process I go through to creat the items I make. But sometimes I will have some off subject posts just to mix things up a little bit and so that you can get to know me a little better. I am finding that people like to know a little bit about the person behind the mask so to speak. So I may also talk about things like my playful Border Collie/Black Lab Saffron and some of his adventures that he takes us on. They can be quit entertaining sometimes and might even come with some pictures. So I hope you will find my posts interesting, entertaining, maybe even helpful and along the way you might even find something you would like to buy.

I would also like to get to know you so as this blog evolves I hope you will post comments and share your ideas and thoughts with me about what I have wrote. So please bookmark me as a favorite and keep coming back to see what is new.

Feel free to contact me anytime with questions, thoughts, ideas, suggestions and more. I will be happy to respond.

Note: At first I my plan is to post 2-3 times a week until I get better at this and used to doing it. If you have any suggestions for me please share, I want to learn.

Have a great day & Happy New Year.
