The first Post!

We are right in the middle of remodeling our blog but while we work out the fine details of our new layout, Becka and I would like to participate in the "Back to Blogging" activity over at SITS.

Here is the first post that Becka wrote last year:
******************************************************************************
I'd like to welcome you to my new blog: Welcome.

As it says on the side right there, I've created a blog to share the things that I create, the ideas of creations, and basically to have a hub for my stuff. I'll be setting up an Etsy shop soon and hopefully you can purchase some of my creations there. Or maybe just go look at it and tell a friend. 

I plan to have giveaways that anyone can enter if they help out in my blog. Sometimes you just need to give me ideas, sometimes I'll ask you to promote my shop. I'll explain when it's relevant.

I'll also post simple tutorials for the creations if you ask. By all means they might not be helpful at all, but I'll try.

Anyways, look around, I'll try to keep it updated. You're all invited!
******************************************************************************
When Becka started this blog, she thought that it would be closely connected with her Etsy shop and basically a way that she could promote the things she sold.  But things have changed so much from that time!  Today we feel like the blog and the Etsy shop are very different things.  The blog has taken on a life of its own and we like to use it to connect with others make new friends besides.


Other than that, we like it.  It was simple and sweet; an invitation to friends and family; a news flash:  I'm starting a craft blog!
One year later, CK has jumped on board and now we are crafting and creating together.
Wow... we've learned SOOO much!!!  Our blog looks completely different from when it did then and we are constantly making new improvements.  And largely this is due to our SITS-tahs!  I love it when we have a good SITS-tah come through and comment or have a look around.  We always learn from each other and the experience makes blogging even more fun!

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

What I Did Today said...

I should try the SITS thing. I follow their blog, but I think I must be slightly afraid of commitment. This going back to the first blog looks like fun, though! I'll have to think about it some more.
