After purchasing and reading my first Artful Blogging magazine by Somerset Studios, I thought,"Oh! I want to do this!!" Next came the thoughts of how, when, what to call it, would anyone read it? Would anyone like it? Then I purchased and read the next two editions. The May/June/July issue was the clincher. (Plus it's summer time, a much more relaxed time of the year for me.) The article by Debra Cooper from littleblackkitty.typepad.com was what did it for me. Her honesty and challenges about her art hit very close to home ... Could I be so bold as to post my art for all the world to see?? It is up in my home, I have done a couple of shows here in town ... but on the internet???
Enter more procrastination. I need to unpack Brenna from camp. We are going on vacation. My living room is covered in laundry. My refrigerator is growing things that are unedible. It's hot. Don't we want to go swimming?? THEN I read a blog from firstname.lastname@example.org about sharing your creative spaces. I want to join!! Wait, you need a blog??? Fine. Move the laundry over, and let's get this blog started!!!
So, to my friends old and new, without further ado, here is the launch of BlueSkies. Welcome!! I hope to share my art, thoughts, family, life's ups and downs, and grow to be good friends with all of you.
Here is my first try at posting the new summer banner I made at Debbie's Scrapping Lounge in Montclair, CA. Enjoy!
