Hello everyone! My name is Brandi, and I confess to being a newbie here on so many levels. A little over a year ago I came across some great blogs and discovered blogging really wasn't what I had originally thought it was, it was so much more. I quickly became addicted to all the wonderful inspiration that is shared out here. I have thought many times "wow where have I been, that I haven't noticed any of this sooner" Truth being I was probably hiding in a book somewhere. I have a passion for reading and writing. I have also discovered recently that I have a passion for painting and D.I.Y projects.
I spent months thinking I wanted to blog. I started fearing what

posts. I thought this was a nice place to begin though, introducing
myself as the newbie. That way as I make mistakes, which I'm hoping
won't be often, people will know I'm just learning what many of you
have been doing for years. I look forward to gaining knowledge from
Is there anyone else out here a beginner like me? Does anyone have
advice they would like to share, I would love hearing from you!
Until next time,
