Here goes nothing . . .

I've been thinking about doing something like this for sometime now and kept putting it off for one reason or another. (One of the big ones being, aren't there already 100's of other blogs just like this?) But since there is absolutely nothing to lose, and even if I am just writing to my mom and my posterity, let's give it a whirl.

This summer I dove into the blogging world. I've been writing a family blog for a couple of years now about our kids and vacations and stuff like that, mainly for all of our out-of-town family. (And now with the advent of blog-publishing! this may replace scrapbooking, since I don't seem to have time for both scrapbooking and sewing. And since I keep finding sewing projects, the scrapbooks are sorely neglected. My poor 4th child. At least he's the most heavily featured on the family blog.)

So anyway, this summer I discovered the rest of the mom-blog world. Or at least a fun little fraction of it. And it was amazing to discover other people like me!! Other moms who are home with busy little kids who still find time to quilt and sew! It was like when Dorothy walks out of her little black and white Kansas cabin into the technicolor land of Oz. I was so inspired by so many other women! When my husband came home, I told him I felt like I'd found a ton of new friends!

So I'm taking the plunge.

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam.
