Like ripping off a band aid!

Welcome!

I'm taking a huge leap out of my comfort zone. I hate to sound negative or sheepish and admit this, but it is hard to put myself out there. I have thought about blogging for years and just couldn't quIte pull the trigger. I question my "design" choices daily and I am always second guessing myself. Who am I to put thoughts and ideas out there into this universe of immeasurable talent?

I have always believed that Instagram / blogging would invite critics and negativity. I have less than stellar grammar and punctuation abilities. I'm sarcastic which doesn't always read well in written context. To put it in words....I feel like the new kid at school. Literal thoughts rushing in my head....how do I make my images pinnable...what is a widget...how do I link back....is this picture size right...did I use too many exclamation points....should it be too or to...do I sound like a moron?!? Aaaaggghhhh

However, since joining Instagram several months ago, I have realized the good far out weigh the bad. I guess you could say I feel a little more "safe" to share my passion. I have met some of the most encouraging and kind hearted people through the Instagram community. They share my love for the same things and they build each other up! It has been a great motivator in helping me swallow my fear.

I hope by blogging about my love for DIY..Antiques..farmhouses..renovations...(the list goes on) you will get to know me. And that I will get to know you!
