So I tried my first challenge at Tag You're It. It was a sketch challenge, so here's my first attempt!

To blog or not to blog? I have spent a LOT of time perusing blogs about crafts, art, decorating...and thought it would be fun to have a blog of my own. So I opened?, started?, created? an account and thought..."now what"? I have absolutely no idea how it works, and don't even know enough about it to ask intelligent questions in the help section! But it will be fun, and will eventually evolve.

I couldn't think of a name for it. There are so many wonderful blogs out there where the name instantly directs your mind to the interest or talent of the blogger. I kept thinking, well I scrapbook a little, I paint (just a very very little), I collect seemingly useless things and re-work?, alter?, re-purpose? them. I love antique?, shabby?, primitive? things. A name. It was making me crazy! I just kept thinking..."no I don't really do that, I just dabble in it". Dabble. I liked that word. I thought, well yep, I do dabble. Dabble I do. Dabble dabble do!

This time of year really gets my creative side going. I love the fall. I've been making Halloween decorations. I've even tried a couple of the challenges on various blogs. If I get brave enough I may put a picture of one of them on here. But right now, I am stalking a bottle on my mom's cabinet tops. It's just sitting there, bare, waiting to have some paper and ribbon or something stuck to it. I might have to "borrow" it for a few days. I'll return it, in its new altered state, and she will probably never miss it. needs worked on!

So, thank you to anyone visiting my blog. I hope to figure this whole community out, and begin participating in the fun stuff!
