Very First Post

Just a note to get this whole thing started.  Like everyone else who starts a blog, I'm a little nervous and a little unsure of how to start and where to go with all of this.  I have a lot of ideas and a lot of plans.  All I need is the time and a big shot of confidence.  So, I guess the best thing to do is jump in and see what happens.  How scary can it be? 

I have this website, http://www.flightsoffancyboutique.com/  - actually, I have had this web business for almost twenty years now.  I sell trims and embellishments of all descriptions.  I thought it might be fun to use my blog to show you how to use some of my trims and embellishments in projects.  So one at a time I'll give some how-to instructions using pictures and descriptions. 

I'd love to have some feedback on what you think and how I might make the instructions easier to understand.  Will get the ball rolling shortly.

  7. Welcome to Blogland! I'm new to you, but not new to blogging. I came to visit on Pat Winter's recommendation. I took a CQ class from Pat a year and a half ago. I greatly admire her work, so if she recommends you, I'm on board!
