Moving On and Accepting Who I am and my You Tube Channel

Good morning, and welcome to my blog.   I am slowly sorting out in my mind what I want to do.  I finally realized that although I did take a fairly long break from my crafting, I don't think I could ever give it up completely.  With life in general events do put life into perspective, and after losing my dear Mum almost 2 years ago, I decided to spend and appreciate my family even more than I already did.  With that in mind I took a long break from my crafting and did plan on giving it up completely.  I am now glad I didn't.

I have always been uncomfortable with "who I am" not liking the way I look, talk etc, etc, but I think this is true of a lot of us ladies.  I have always hated the camera and seeing myself or hearing myself.  So the fact that I had wanted to do a You Tube Channel did not make any sense.

I have finally realized, I am who I am and can not change that, I have to accept what I look and sound like, and so what if people don't like me, that's life.  It all sounds very easy when I read it back, but in reality it isn't as easy as it sounds.  Reaching 50 last year may be what has sparked this new belief.  So finally I decided last week to go for it.  I did my first ever You Tube video, if you would like to take a look the link is below.

It took me a week literally before I could watch or listen to it, all the way through .  My daughter edits and loads my videos as I rely on using her recording equipment.  For this reason I will only be loading once a week as she has study commitments.  So I have decided to use my blog again to share Car Boot Hauls, before and after shots of altered items from the Car Boot, and anything else I want to share with you all.

I would love to see your comments and will be running regular give aways on here and my You Tube Channel.

Thank you for popping by and I will be back soon with photos of some recent projects.

Linda xx

Blogging again after a very long break

I can hardly believe how long it has been since I posted on my blog.  I can not even explain why the long absence.  For those friends who know me, I do suffer with depression and a spell of it made me withdraw from many aspects of my life including my blogging.  So much has happened since I was last posting, and through the last couple of years, I have had spells of not crafting at all.  Having lost my wonderful Mum 18 months ago, it took a long time for me to get back into my crafting and to get my MOJO back.  I think I am finally getting there, and thought I would like to start sharing some of my projects with you and also to update you on my day to day life.  I am looking forward to catching up with some old friends on blogger.  Will be back shortly with some projects to share.  Hugs xxxx
