Tick 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.
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.by

I think I got this!
Keep doing what you’re doing. I enjoy your FB page and hope to follow your blog, too.
Kathy, Thank you!!! It’s of equal amounts of fear and excitement!!!
Welcome to bloggerdom! Great luck with your new adventure! I am sooo remiss in updating mine, but feel free to check it out and leave one of you ever- so-witty comments 🙂 http://hammerhoeandheels.blogspot.com/
Hey Diane – you do have it now! Congratulations!!
Hey good luck. You seem to have things figured out a lot more than I do and I’ve been blogging for 2 years!
No, Karen. I’m just faking it.
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.
Thank you, Lauren. PDX is Portland, Oregon 🙂
