The Post That Started It All!

If you've found your way to this post, either you really want to know more about my blog and me, or I've not updated my blog since this post...hello anyway!

I have a ridiculous amount of hobbies. So many, in fact, that I have piles of hobby things and none of them have been touched in a while. For example, I cross-stitch and I have over 200+ cross-stitch kits to be completed thanks to a magazine I collected a few years ago. Imagine that with jigsaw puzzles, card-making, scrapbooks, reading, writing and anything to do with Fairies. My office is full of piles of books, notebooks, jigsaw puzzles and boxes containing a variety of hobby things, not to mention the ornaments.

So, it's time I organised myself, stop collecting and started doing, and my thinking is that if I do a blog then it'll spur me to do the hobbies, rather than be in the habit of collecting them. Hopefully I'll be able to make a load of blog friends too and we can trade tips, reviews and the like.

My blog will be made up of the following:

- Any projects that I'm working on like cross-stitch kits, scrapbooks, and card-making.

- Book reviews. There's 300+ books sitting in my office needing to be read and I like reviewing, keeps me writing.

- Writing. I like writing. I'm writing two novels at the moment with a notebook full of ideas to be worked on. Maybe one day someone will want to publish them but I'm just having fun writing them at the moment.

- Day Zero Project. Another thing to get me organised and doing stuff with my life rather than idling along. It's a wonderful site to help you set goals out and achieve them.

- And maybe some ramblings in general. I like to ramble. Especially when I'm excited about something.

There you have it. That's me and my ability to horde everything in my life! Join me and comment so I can follow your blog too.
