MY very first post

So…here I am.  I decided to do a blog about one of my loves…creativity.  I love being creative whether with food, crafts, photographs, all sorts of stuff…I just love it!  I have been so inspired by, Carrie, my sister-in-law’s blog, DixieMango, that she helped me get on board and create this one!  I do hope you will love it!  You can read more about me and the reason for my blog under the About section if you are curious…you know you are!  Just make sure you come back when you finish reading!

So this is the very first thing Carrie taught me to make:

Isn’t it adorable?  It’s applique!  I know…it was news to me too!  I hear that you either love to applique or not…well…I love it!  Most of the creativity you will see on this blog will be of this sort.  So to be clear…I did not create the actual onesie (gymboree did that for me), I just embellished it with the “m” and the flower.  I say “just” but it does take a bit of patience and creativity to do this kind of thing.  I am learning that the real sewing people of this world are probably going to look at my stitching and judge my sewing capability on that.  I don’t really know how I feel about that, but the way Carrie describes it, it almost makes me think it might be like when someone catches a glimpse of you in your underwear!  Not really looking forward to all that now people, so be gentle and kind with your comments about the stitching! 🙂  I’ll decide if I can handle any more “glimpses” after you all comment and then will post more!
