Here I am!

It took me a while...but I'm here, finally, I'm a blogger too :)

I've actually had my lil' slice of the blog world for some time now, just setting here w/ nothing more than a name, a banner, and a few links. I've been dragging my feet forever it seems, wanting to take the blog plunge, but not knowing how to jump in.
It seems I'm only comfy if everything is just right, just so, it all needs to be in place, doesn't it? Or does it? Maybe it doesn't have to be, and it's OK.
I feel so blog-challenged, like I've been plopped in a strange and unfamiliar place, blind, and with no Braille available. I'm having a bit of a hard time finding my way around this new blogging world. I can't even get my all my colors how I want them, and there is some funny "icon" and I don't know where it came from or what the heck it is. It's driving me crazy, but guess what? I'm lettin it go.
I'll get it, I know I will, it's just gonna take me some time, and plenty of it, so I hope you can bear with me, and my not so perfect blog. I'll get all my ducks in a row.......eventually.

Now....about me. Well, I'm an animal advocate who loves creating prim dolls! I love anything old and worn, and I love all animals, w/ a special fondness for dogs...I know, you never would have guessed that, right? My heart breaks for anything mistreated, human or otherwise. Us humans....well, we have a voice, the animals....they don't. I try to help when I can.

I'm looking so forward to this blogging. I'll be sharing some stories from my life's journey.....the simple things......close to my heart. I'll also share my prim creations with you, and occasionally a good recipe, b/c, I know myself.....for me, some foods can be the ultimate comfort when nothing else works, right?

If you're an animal lover.....you'll love it here, if not......I hope you will open your eyes, even if just a little.

til next time......
