One of the first things in the way of creating a blog was always how do I begin? How am I going to reveal who I am, and what will I feel comfortable revealing? I’ve spent more time on these thoughts than I care to admit. I always felt it would be disingenuous to pretend that I was new to online journaling; I was a big Live Journal junkie back in the day when I was in my early twenties and didn’t have any reservations about pouring my heart out to strangers.
Things have changed so much. Now, ten years later at 34, I’m a lot more cautious about how and what I share with people. I’m planning on tossing some caution to the wind. Some.
This is going to be a blog mostly about my creative pursuits and a little about my life. I will be sharing a good deal of my hand sewn garments and my knitting projects for the most part. I have a good little Instagram going but I want to start following the blogs of some of the sewists I admire and I would like others in the sewing and knitting community to know me as well.
I toyed with the idea of doing an introductory post about my life story but I feel like it will be more organic if I tell you who I am during the course of my posts. When I start following a blog I sometimes feel self-conscious that I am virtually entering a room of people who know each other and Im sort of interrupting the flow. I don’t know about some of the inside jokes or the back story to certain situations. I ambitiously aim for my blog to be a conversation.
Now all we need are hot coffees and snacks.
Or whiskey. I’m down with whiskey too.
