Hello from Wayne and Karen!
Just returning home from surgery, I tapped into a wonderful gift from my father and Amy…Netflix! (I am sure you all know about it…I apparently, was one of the last to know.) Anyway, the first movie I ordered was Julie and Julia. Since I had just completed our family cookbook, the movie inspired me to use the concept of “blogging”. It seemed to be a very practical way to expand the book. However this time, I would not only offer recipes, but family history, a diary of our shops/ “Life with Wayne”, and tutorials on how to make things, etc.
So, I began the “blogging” process by following, “How to Make A Blog” on Google.
At first, I tried to be very generic, highlighting specialties aimed at our family. At that time, I had no idea what a “follower” was (and still, by the way, don’t exactly understand “links”) and other things that hurl you into the Blog-osphere. All I knew, was that I enjoyed writing, creating, teaching and sharing. (I had a Grandmother that taught me a great deal…almost EVERYTHING. Boy, would we have a good time if she was still with us and “blogging”!) I wanted to pass that along.
Therefore, I hunt, peck, look and learn. What happened? I became a part of a wonderful community, where you don’t have to be “generic” and find myself making friends!
So, this leads me to a blog I feel is especially inspiring, “LUCY’S LOUNGE” at, Tuttichic.typepad.com. She offers everything!…Wonderful taste and creativity, mixed with family, complimented with an absolutely “wicked” (we say that in New England) sense of humor. If you haven’t visited, please do. At the very least, it will give you a laugh for the day. (By the way, “I Love Lucy” lighting her nose on fire, is my absolute favorite!)
She recently shared the birth of the precious, Giana Lorraine! My gift to share, is Baby Giana’s picture layered upon a hand painted background (a close-up of my “Pieces of Dreams“, hand painted furniture.)
Thank you, Chris, at Tuttichic for sharing such a beautiful family moment. And, thank you all for visiting my blog and becoming my new friends…I Had No Idea What Was Out There!
