Blooming Wildly
It only just occurred to me that I have been blogging for 9 years. Since September of 2008. Over that time many things in my life have changed and those of you who have followed me during all this time will know this. I started blogging when I was working full time and making jewelry on the side. Now, of course, I am retired and making art again instead.

Through all of that time the blog has been a diary of sorts. An online journal. A constant presence in my life. I should really figure out a way to print it out. I seem to remember that there is a way to do that. It would take me a long time but it could be worth it to have an actual physical book as well as online. After all who knows what could happen to it. It could be gone in a flash! I have heard of that happening to some fellow bloggers.

I have never been very good at keeping a real journal but I seem to be much better at this one! I don't know why really. Writing is writing, yes?

Thank you to all of you who have followed this blog through it all and at times given me support and advice when I needed it the most. I know that I am very bad at responding to all of your comments. Please know that I read them, and always enjoy and appreciate them. I will try and get better about responding to them but no promises OK????

Have a great week and stay warm!

Well done on nine years! I've often thought about trying to get my blog printed but it seems so tricky... But it is a great record of how things change. Love the image!
