Today, I wanted to talk about something a little different . . . you will see what I mean later in this post. You see, I have had numerous different hobbies throughout my life, creative writing, poetry writing, photography, knitting, cooking . . . well, the list goes on and on. However, being the kind of obsessive creature that I am, whatever was my current passion took precedence and everything else was pushed way back into the background and almost forgotten (my dear, late father used to say I had a "butterfly mind" . . . flitting from one thing to another)

Oh well, back to the drawing board . . . I'm going to have to practice! Have a great, crafty weekend my friends!
