There and Here

Here I am back at the coffee shop with my hot chai. I've been silent for a couple of days because I'm working on some projects and trying to upgrade this blog and open my etsy shop. Yes, I'm taking all kinds of steps. Well, maybe I should say stumbling along... but I'll get there.

The big news (for me at least) is that this is my 96th post. My first post was on Christmas Day and I remember wondering if I would have enough to say... or really have enough to say that people would be interested in. And yet my list of followers has grown. New people visit all the time and leave comments. Others respond through e-mails or when I see them at various meetings. This astounds me. When I read the Somerset magazine "Artful Blotting" I realize that most bloggers start out where I did, they persevered and the changes in themselves and their lives began.

As I near my 100th post I think back on the past few months. How I've grown, made friends, expanded my art, touched others with my stories, and the list goes on-and-on.

I don't know what day that post will happen to appear. I post when it strikes me, not on a schedule. So please, dear friends, keep checking back. I plan on having lots of surprises for you wonderful people including a special prize.

Now, here I am at home. Thinking about projects and swaps and ideas. Still have much to do but it helps to know I have all my Blogland friends along to help. Thank you.

P.S. Please be patient with my my stumbling and goofy page things as I learn how to do more things.
