Heeeellloooooo Out Theeeere

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

If you're there, I'd like to welcome you to my blog debut. Today's the day. Today's the day I will actually write one of the many things that have been swirling around in my brain since I began giving this whole blogging thing some thought.

There's a massive amount of creativity out there, don't you agree? Some of you are serious crafters, aren't you? That alone was having me feeling rather inadequate, and actually wondering if I would be ostracized from the cyber world if I told you that the idea of sewing, quilting and the like made me break out in hives. I sewed a wonderfully precise pig pillow in Home Economics class in 8th grade, which I got an A+ on, and to this day maintain quite a sense of pride about it. And sewing supposedly runs in my genes, as my maternal grandmother used to run a business sewing everything from special gowns for the girls at a local, private high school to attaching uniform decals that were shipped to her in huge deliveries. Like missing out on getting my mom's beautiful blue eyes, I have not been issued the love of sewing.

I'm not so certain I can actually "craft" either. Where do you people keep all those materials needed for making all that stuff? When do you find the time?

Me? I shop. I looooove shopping, and I know I'm good at it. I can smell a good clearance miles away. And don't get me started on garage sales.....there will be plenty of time to discuss that as we get to know each other better.

What else, you ask? Well, I do certainly like to decorate. The issue right now is finding the time to be able to actually put out more than what I consider the bare bones. (Again, I refer back to all the cool stuff I see posted for fall. Mom's with kids.....how do those loving, little, needy creatures allow you do get to any of it? Really. I'd love to know.)

Oh, and then there's baking & cooking. It's good. I like it. I'll be sharing with you some of my anti-recipe recipes (hint: I don't measure much) in the future, so maybe that's where I can be of assistance to you.

Well, nice to have met you. By the way, my name is Julie. I am married to a physicist and we have two girls, ages 6 (1st grade) & 2. I have PLENTY to say about each one them. But that's for another day.
