Taking a step...

So.... it's time to take a step and start showing some of what I've been working on. I thought a good way to do this is to post some of my creative efforts on my blog. Next step is that I'm going to submit some of my projects to various places and see what happens. Some are contests, some are Design Team Calls, some are for publication in magazines. Someone's got to win right? So why couldn't it possibly be me? Certainly nothing will happen if I don't give it a shot! This one above is for My Little Yellow Bicycle. I didn't have a lot of advance notice and then it was a bit of a challenge to find the product here in Calgary, but with their embellishments and "Kiki Art" paper, I thought this was a bright, cheery page...  And I couldn't stop there...  even made a fun bookmark... no more folding the corners of my books.

So I have learned something new, caught up (a bit) with the times and created a blog.  Prior to this, I wasn't sure why I would be one to blog.  Why would anyone want to read my thoughts or opinions?  I always figured people's reactions to my regular ramblings would be "So?"  So I didn't have a blog... until now. 

Over the weekend, I learned that saying "So" is Biblical.  Psalms 107:2 states "Let the Redeemed of the Lord say so."   (For further explanation on where I got this insight, watch Tyler Perry's "Big Happy Family" for a speech made by Madea based on Psalms 107:2 :o)

So if that's your reaction to what I have shared, I will rejoice with you as one the Lord has redeemed from the enemy and I will also say "So!"  And, upon further ponderance of those two little letters put together... "S" and "O", there may be power in that word afterall.  I am going to practice saying "SO" just to see all the different meanings, expressions, connotations and reactions that can come of it.   And for now, you might react with "So?" as in "What's your point?" but I'm going to conclude with "So...." as in "I'm just getting started but have to think on that for a bit so be patient with me as we see where we go from here..."
