I've always enjoyed writing and wanted to Do Something with it, but for years I've been paralyzed by perfectionism and limited thinking. Now I'm really working on being open to possibilites, especially unexpected ones, in all areas of my life, including writing. My friends know this. In mid-November, Myla sent me the link to an application for a website called Blissfully Domestic, along with a note strongly encouraging me to go for it. :) In the past, I would have assumed that I was too inexperienced or not talented enough to do such a thing. But I liked the website and thought I'd fit in well there - since I am, in fact, blissfully domestic. I told myself that the worst they could do was say no, and submitted the application. I really didn't think anything would come of it, but a few weeks later, I received an e-mail telling me I was accepted!
So I am now an Arts & Crafts Columnist at Blissfully Domestic, and my first post went live today! If you're interested in making custom coasters to match your decor, it's a great time to learn how. :) I'll be posting there monthly (at least) and am very excited about this opportunity to grow as a writer - and crafter!
