Ready to Begin

I am ready to begin the process of blogging!

The first difficulty I met when thinking about regularly posting here is the word "regular."  My family will tell you I do not always follow through in life.  I start projects, but I don't always complete them.  I have a scrap blanket that is very close to completion... but it remains folded up in a basket next to my rocking chair, waiting for me to crochet the final balls of scrap yarn and hide the end pieces.  Heck, there is a cake in my kitchen waiting for me to make the lemon curd topping.

I just have difficulty with follow through.

As a result, the idea of posting daily.... weekly... is daunting to me.  I started thinking about how I could overcome this hurdle.  Maybe I make each day have a theme. Savory Saturdays... Sweet Sundays... Quick and Easy Wednesdays...  Maybe I do a lot of things one day and save them for future posts.  Or better yet, maybe I post my plan about planning how to post regularly in the future... BUSTED!

Hopefully blogging will become a habit that is both relaxing and helpful.  I know how much I love step by step instructions and insights in baking and cooking.  Visuals are immensely helpful.  Let's try it and see how it goes.

Okay... The CURRENT plan:

Baking Post
Cooking Post
Craft Update Post
Craft Show Post
etc.

Wish me luck and come back to see the first post

Almond Horns... delectable!

Baker's Dozen -

My sister Mary and I talk weekly, sometimes daily about everything or nothing.  Even though she is 7 years older than me, we find ourselves with many of the same interests.  We both love to cook, bake, craft, and start projects.  We found ourselves talking about the fact that if we were forced to describe what we loved to do best, we could not pick on activity.  Instead, we would have to settle on the fact that what we love most is trying new things.  

As a result, we both settled on opening blogs dedicated to all the things that we love to dabble in.  We each have our own interests, which will make our blogs different in their own way.  She is a librarian, with three dogs, and an eye for the next trend.  I am an avid baker, with 2 cats and a dog, who crams every craft into a very messy craft room.  

I am excited to share recipes and crafts with readers and fellow craft enthusiasts.  It will be a journey, one that I hope will be full of full and great experiences.
