Day two

 Quirky

I can’t say I will always post daily.  There are many times that life will get in the way.  But I can try to post once or twice a week. 

Part of what has propelled starting a blog was the move and also at CHA I felt like I was the only one who did not.  Keeping my life private to me has always been important.  I do not mind sharing work and fun tid bits or recipes.  But my family is off limit. I am a very protective Momma bird.

I will slowly add links to my blog of those who have work I am fond of and other who I find inspirational.  I will also try to link to companies whose products or services I like.  I will try my best to not sound like I am promoting a single company as that is not my aim.  I have favorites and I am not afraid to admit it.  

I gave a few mentions yesterday.  There is a photo of my September project for Pazzles.  I can honestly not say enough about the people and products they put out.  I have been working with Pazzles for almost 3 years now and they have never dissapointed me.  At CHA winter they made me very happy.  They came out with a new Machine called the Inspiration.  It will cut a 12 x12 sheet of paper plus a few other materials.  Check out the website www.Pazzles.com and you can see all of the wonderful features.  The new software is awesome and I cannot wait to get my hands one one.  I think I am going to upgrade from my Mini to the Inspiration.  They are available soon so I think once we are settled in I will make the upgrade.

We leave the first week in March to go to Wilmington.  I might do some house shopping then.  I know one thing will be important in our new house and that is a creative space for me.  I also want to have an area where my son can create along side.  He loves to paint in both water colours and fingerpaint.  I think creative expression is a very important part of childhood.

    Happy Birthday, a little late! I hope you got to celebrate, if only in a small way. Celebrations are important. And when you have time, I want to hear about this needle felting you’re doing.
