Why start now? Well my life seems to have come to a new turning point. I am about to embark on a new marriage to Tom, the man of my dreams, I have just moved and renovated my scrapping space/office, summer break is coming in a couple of days and I am finding myself at a moment in my life where I feel it is necessary to regroup and refocus. So I figured that now is as good a time as any to get started.
What do I think the purpose of this blog is? There are multiple answers to that! Here are some that come to mind...
- Keep me focused on the important things that fill my bucket
- Provide a way to communicate my thoughts and feelings with others
- Build deeper relationships with friends, loved ones and our Wishblading Well customers
- Have a place to showcase my creations
- Inspire others in any way that I can
- Share with others
I hope that you will decide to come back and visit my blog. I want to be accountable to others as I journey on this new challenge of mine to enjoy and cherish the things in my life's bucket. And work on keeping things from flowing out of my bucket for lack of proper attention. (Do you Wishblading Well buddies get the connection to the bucket? LOL!)
Part of this whole process has stemmed from me moving my scrapping/stamping/office space from the spare bedroom in my house into the formal dining room. I know that it sounds like a funny thing to do, but it was a necessary move so that I could allow Tom to have an office with a closed door. He is such an important part of my life, and making room for him in my home has been something I am willing to do because I want him to know how happy I am that he is here!
I have been guilty of hiding out in my office which was towards the back of the house. Now I am in a very central location of my home and I am already appreciating being closer to my family even when I am working in my office. I am really proud of what Tom and I have done to my new Studio (that's what I call my scrapping area now! LOL!) I am including some pictures of it below so you can see my new space. It was important to me that it look beautiful since it is smack dab in the middle of my home, yet it had to be functional too! I think we accomplished that! I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. I plan on sharing some of my organizational methods with you in future posts.
Wish me luck with this whole blogging thing and thanks if you made it this far already! I will try to keep future posts a little shorter!
