What is this all about?

Every blogger has her own special point-of-view. Who, me? Uh, yeah, well, YES--- I'm a blogger, sure I am. I'm also a crafter, an artist, an art history and church school curriculum writer, a family minister for the Episcopal Church, as well as a wife, mother, daughter, sister and fun friend. I have been involved in art sales in Portland, Oregon for 17 years and just opened an etsy shop under the name of aVelvetLeaf. In the midst of this steep learning curve of learning how to ship, take decent photographs and write copy, I'll attempt to add blogging to my already overcrowded schedule. After all, how hard could it be with my writing and arts background? Err....did I mention I'm over 50? That my computer skills are completely self taught? That when I went to college not only were there no computers, but no calculators? That a year ago I didn't know what a blog was? Well, I guess you see my challenge. I plan to share creative ideas, the joy over successes and laments on the struggles. I'd love for you to come along on the journey.... however rocky it may get.
