In the beginning…

by  CourTney The first entry is always the hardest.  I don’t want to be one of those “Dear Diary” types, but I suppose that gives a focus as to who you are speaking to.  I suppose I need to start with the purpose.  My purpose is to write about the new adventures of starting upContinue Reading

A Non-Work of Art: First coat

I put the first strokes of paint down on the blank canvas.  If you haven’t read it yet, check out : Non-work of Art before continuing.

A Very Crafty Christmas

A very belated story…. This past Christmas was very different for me. Typically, I make about 70% of my gifts, along with Christmas cards and cookies.
