Blog? Huh? I don't think I know what that word means.

As I see my traffic reports for Snippets each week, I am reminded that I haven't posted in quite a while. I tend to find that when my life is going well, or at least busy and fulfilling (for the most part) I don't care to blog about it as much as just live it. However, I do greatly enjoy the chronicling of my mundane life, family, hobbies and random interests when I go back and reread them later. There could be a book in me somewhere at sometime, and so, I think it is important to start keeping up with the blog, at least more often than I have.

That being said, presently I'm not so interested in writing about my life, but would like to track my creative endeavors a little more closely. I've been working on some projects in the sewing studio and would like to share them here. A good friend and I have been discussing ideas for creating an Etsy shop... I'm not sure that would be very lucrative, but it could be a start.

As I have been teaching art to third grade boys this year at our home school co-op, I learned of a new (to me) method of batiking and tried it out with them for a lesson. I was so impressed by this that I decided to use the same method to create a fun and artsy lining for my bff's coat that needed a red0.
