I have been cleaning old photos off my computer and look what I found! This is a picture of the very first card I posted way back in Sept. 2009! I started this blog, not knowing if anyone would ever read it, but thinking I would do this thing even if it was just for me. For months nobody visited except for my dear sister the "Enabler", but I ploughed forward each and every chance I got to post. I can't remember much about this card but it sure looks like I was really into this Swiss dot folder! Also my picture taking skills were seriously lacking. Still are, although I now have a much better camera and set up to work with. I had my desk set up in the laundry room and it looks like I propped the card on the washer and snapped the picture. When I found this picture, I had to smile. It is my beginning.....my starting point....we all have them and hopefully I have moved forward from this humble little owl sitting on all that Swiss dot embossing.
Since I snapped this picture many things have happened in my life. I now have a whole room to call mine...I'm retired and can play all day long if I want...I've been on a couple of design teams and have learned so very much from other design team members. I have watched my grandchildren mature and become teenagers. Life is good.
So what about you, do you remember your first card? Do you remember your first commenter? Slow down and have a little look back at your beginnings... Now lets look forward. I embrace each and every day. I look forward to reading your comments and visiting my blogging buddies. I have made so many new friends since I started and I love to visit. If you are standing in the wings, thinking about starting a blog, I encourage you to jump in and get your feet wet! It opens up a whole new world and I don't think you will ever regret it. We all have to start somewhere.
Well this is it for me. Just a little walk down memory lane before I turn and face this glorious day.
I hope your day is filled with sunshine and happiness!
