End of the Weekend

I always hate to see the weekend end, but even more so this weekend. I have been working on a few items to share and learning so much about this world of blogging. I will try to share my creations tomorrow and I so want to do more with my altered book, but....not enough hours. Ah, well, there's always tomorrow to alter a bit more.
Enjoy your week to come.

What will today bring?

I finally decided on the book I will use as part of my altered book project for a yahoo group to which I belong. I found an old copy of "The Red Badge of Courage" at a local used book store. Since the book has no value (according to the collector at the store), I'll begin altering it later this evening. There is just something about tearing pages out of a book which bothers me, but....I will persevere and join the journey to create an altered book. I'll share pictures as I go along (if I can figure out how to upload). If you're really interested in this type of altered art check out the following site It's a site started by one of our guides in this journey.
I'm also working on a couple of swaps for this same group and will also share those as they are completed.
Enjoy your weekend and remember to take time for you each day.

My foray into the world of Blogging

I have watched and admired many of my online friends as they began their blogs and then turned them into a habit for the rest of us. So, this evening, I decided to try my luck at entering the world of blogging. I don't have a theme for my blog as yet, but that will come in time. At this point, I think I will just share random thoughts and discoveries. What type of discoveries, you ask, I'm not sure. Some may be of great blog sites, some of crafting blogs, and some of just my own ruminations.
I don't promise to post daily or even weekly, but I will post, so keep checking. You never know when I might actually discover something wonderful.
