My WordPress app reminded me recently that it was my six–year anniversary on this blog. Wow, November 2007 seems like a long time ago! And so much has happened around here in the past six years.
The very first blog I ever read was The Purl Bee. They provide so many original and inspiring projects and products, don’t they? At the time, I was knitting, crafting, and making ornaments, which were a great creative release after a day on my left–brained job.
I started blogging about the craft projects I was making, which led to a new hobby of collecting fabric which led to a lot of quilting which led to a lot of bag–making. Then I decided to take my creativity to a more professional level by going back to school to learn graphic design and illustration, which has become my new passion.
I am looking forward to having some free time to work on personal art projects and crafty things again. (first up, ornaments) I’m also looking forward to figuring out what new directions and new adventures I should take this cherished blog notebook of mine.
Let’s have a dessert treat together to celebrate! Tell me, what’s your favorite dessert treat? (I need to add more dessert illustrations to my banner above.)
Thank you for your friendship after all these years.
