This is it. I’m Live

time bombTick tick tick. It’s a little like a bomb. Just going. Tick tick tick.

I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while. It’s probably a ridiculous notion that I could be a blogger. Most of the time I don’t have anything enlightening to say. The only one piece of good advice I have to share is: Don’t eat yellow snow. And I’ve already shared that on my Facebook page, so it’s old news. But don’t, seriously.

So what is the purpose of me sat typing on a keyboard? Great question. I have no idea. No idea.

I’m not sure what the sole purpose of it will be. I know that I have a tendency to fib. Not big fibs. But if you’ve been on my page, I sometimes embellish the truth. But, in my defense, I also own up to it right away. I’m probably going to have blog posts about what Annie Sloan and I did together. It will be a beautiful fabrication of sorts, involving my wild imagination. Get the drift. I also have no sense of filters or boundaries (it turns out). So I will be bombarding you weekly with the mishaps of my life.

challenges aheadBe warned. 

The blog will surely be a work in progress. We are in this together. Remember? Pinky swear? I will be writing about my painting experiences. I’m new at this – hence the tag line ‘Painting in the dark’. That’s what it feels like sometimes. Somehow, it usually works out. Usually. So I’d like to give you some idea of what I get up to when I’m painting.

My greatest hope is that I can ‘master’ wordpress. Biggest obstacle, yet! I don’t get it. I want my typewriter back. I love getting older, but I somehow missed the technology train when it stopped at my station. If ever it did.

I need you guys. Firstly, what’s the point in typing words if there’s no one to read them? What fool would do that? Not I. So I need an audience. I hate been the center of attention, but I’m usually the big mouth in the crowd. I also need your feedback. Please. I seriously really do. We’re in this together, remember the pinky swear that you did a few paragraphs before? I need you to tell me what I need to do for this to be fun. I am a compass without a North, right now.

So, the bomb is still going tick tick tick. It could be a great thing and it could explode and cascade beautiful streams of color into the air. Or it could be a bad thing and explode…and you probably don’t want to be around.

    Kathy, you made me laugh historically! Wonderful Blog. I love what you are doing and commend you highly for such an informative How To. I am still so confused as to do the transfers. Think that I may need to read over and over again and highlight in my brain the “What Not To Do” parts though. I would really like to give this a shot, but I am petrified that I may ruin the piece. Koodo so to you for all of your hard work and lil mess-ups. That is how we learn I guess. Thankyou again for putting such a wonderful Blog together to share with is all.

      Janet – Start small. It’s not as hard as it sounds. Really. If you have any questions, just ask! I’m not an expert (clearly) but I love doing it. Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate you spending time to comment. Now, on to a more important issue – who’s Kathy 🙂

    Hello. I just have been reading your blog for the first time. I have followed you on Facebook for awhile and wanted to see who was behind that sarcastic wit. Having a great time reading all of your posts. One question – pdx? Is that for Portland Oregon or Maine? ( I think that’s the other Portland!?!). Anyway. I paint too. Who doesn’t? And identify with your style, colors and dare I say frustrations. Keep up the fabulous writing.
