So here I go... blogging. Not sure what to blog about... of course there are lots of things that I could go on about but doubt very seriously that anyone (including me) would really be interested. That said... away I go!
Given that this IS my first attempt I figure that saying a bit about me is probably appropriate (for those of you who have read my profile, please forgive the blatent plagerism of my profile info).
I am the survivor of a brain aneursym rupture, 2 strokes, and 7 brain surgeries . I turned to my 'crafty side' as a sort-of therapy... over the years I've pursued this 'therapy' more and more and finally decided to make it 'official' by starting my own selling pages. Please don't refer to me as 'brave' or 'strong' as I don't think of myself that way. In my view, life is an adventure full of trials and joys. I don't know what it's like to NOT have gone through this... I just put one foot in front of the other every day, doing the best I can. I think everyone does this with the road blocks they face every day. Each day I find something good to share... because no matter how bad things may seem there is always something good in life. You just have to look harder some days.
I am a stay-at-home doggie mom to the PuppyPosse and call my little biz Slo-Dawg Specialties. The 'company' is run by Wilma - a Basset Hound who, after a short career and and over the road truck dog, retired. Pepper, the senior member of the group, is a German Shorthair - she's very enthusiastic about everything but, unfortunately, suffers from ADD and doesn't focus on any one thing for very long. Pebbles & Barney are Springer Spaniels - they 'supervise,' which basically consists of staring at me while I'm crafting. April, at just one year old, is the baby of the Bored of Directors - she likes when I spend time crafting 'cause I'm sitting on the couch and she can cuddle right up and check my supplies for quality. Last but not least is Cowboy - a feline hired under affirmative action, he thinks that we are all peasants and has complete disdain for anything that doesn't revolve around him.
I guess I've gone on long enough about me... Not sure what I'll blog about next time - thinking it'll probably be something about social networking - but you never know!
Have a great day everyone and remember:
"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog."-Edward Hoagland
