Hello! I've finally decided to create my own blog after visiting so many others' blogs for the past month or two. Hopefully, you'll get to know me through my blogs and pictures as I have gotten to know some of you through yours.
I've wanted to post comments many times but felt awkward leaving messages when you don't know anything about me. Hopefully, you'll visit me often and learn more of more through my decorating style and crafting abilities.
I feel I have a lot in common with many of you in the fact that I, too, like to learn new decorating ideas and crafting techniques. I tend to live with the motto, "If there's a will, there's a way". I definitely have the will and I try hard to find the way. I have always prided myself in my crafting abilities; I'm always up for a challenge to learn new things. I've learned to design and build furniture, sew, cross stitch, needle punch, rug hooking, and many more fun things to make my home warm and inviting. I get many ideas from looking at magazines and at pictures of people's homes. I've learned so many things following certain blogs that it's become an addiction. I get so excited to the point that I find myself sticking labels on jars, grunging candles lying around, dusting things with cinnamon, cross stitching free patterns, making pantry cakes and fly screen covers, running to thrift stores to find treasures to makeover, and so many other fun things that I need to stop and ask myself, "Okay, now where am I going to put all these wonderful things?!!" I have downloaded and printed out so many patterns and ideas than I know what to do with, but I find myself checking every day to see what new things have been posted!!
I'm always changing things around and redecorating. My family even teases me about how many times I've changed wall colors, curtains, and always rearranging decor. My husband often comes home from work and says, "Looks like you cleaned house today!", as he stares at the numerous amount of things scattered all over my dining room table! You see, every time I clean, I decide that I don't like a certain gathering on a shelf, or what have you, and have to redo it. I'm not talking about just taking something from over here and putting it over there, I'll need to make something new! Sound familiar to anybody? LOL
So the next challenge I've decided to tackle was to create a blog. Hopefully, I'll be able to share with you some new ideas and post pictures that will get you inspired as much as many of yours have inspired me. Please bear with me, though, because this is a whole new experience for me and I still have a lot to learn (like what are "widgets" and Live Feed"?)!! LOL I guess you could say that my site is still a work in progress as I learn how to add different features and such. Any thoughts and advice will be greatly appreciated!
I have some pictures of my home posted on Webshots (http://community.webshots.com/user/simplyprim). There's only a few, but I'll post more later. I'm trying to create a slideshow for my blog, but I'm not having any luck getting the embedding code accepted. I followed the directions like it said so I don't know what I'm doing wrong! Can anyone help?
Well, I guess I'll be going.
Until next time... Kris
