I am in the Game!

I have been writing for other blogs for the past year.  I finally decided to take the plunge and join the 21st century!  Here is the official debut of my very own blog!!

I hope to fill these posts with fashion ideas, creative musings, interesting finds, and news from my Etsy team fronts and marketing endeavors.  I hope never to become boorish or open my personal life to the Jerry Springer blog show.  If I ever do, please tap my virtual shoulder and remind me of this pledge.  

I am not a fashion queen or a beauty pro.  I do not profess to follow all of the runway shows.  It took me years to figure out my style and I still don't know what it is.  And that is just the way I like it.  I am not a slave to style and do not break the bank each season.  I live in comfortable (not to be confused with rumpled) and can pick them better than I can wear them.  

So, I go back to my studio to create ... and ponder my new life in the blogosphere.
