My first blog!

Ok, so here I am creating my first blog. The last thing I needed was one more password to remember, one more site to check on, but a friend of mine really enjoys doing one so I figured "why not"? Plus what better way to pimp myself than my very own online diary. Yeah, great, now everyone can see just how screwed up I am. Yessss! As if there aren't enough that already know!

So, here's my story:

I'm 31 and work in a law firm in Atlanta. I'm not so much a fan of the whole law firm thing, but it gets the bills paid and everyone I work with is pretty ok. I have lots tattoos that have to be covered. All the time. That can get pretty hot. Georgia weather is a beast and long sleaves all summer...not so much fun!

I don't plan on being at a law firm all my life, but I never made it to college and STILL at 31, have NO IDEA what I want to be when I grow up. I don't have many talents (though I'm sure people that don't like me can tell you of a few). I just wanna be where I can have any color hair I want and all the tattoos I want (and not have to cover 'em up) and still get the bills paid. That leaves uh, let's see, a tattoo shop, but since I can't tattoo there won't be much money to be had and then maybe a swanky hair salon - I tried that, but loathe drama. Then there's wet hair touching me....ugh.....so gross. I tried it, I hated it . Dammit.

Anyways, I love making stuff. I love buying handmade stuff and I can be pretty crafty. The women in my family are all grumpy and crafty. Two things I can be pretty damn good at! There's my talents! Found 'em! I figured why not start making and selling things that I would love to buy....and thus it began.

When talking it over with my husband, he asked "why exactly are you gonna start doing this?". My reply: "'Cuz I feel like it"! Then I had it! My name was born! "'Cuz I Felt Like It!". I make cute felt creations and all the other things I felt like doin'.

I'm having a lot of fun, but it does tend to get a bit overwhelming at times. Deadlines kill me. Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. It's set in stone. This is the date you gotta be done. I wanna say a big fat skrew you to good 'ol Mr. Deadline, but I can't....he's there and he ain't goin' away. So I work and work and sew and sew and continued to be amazed at what creeps out of the depths of my cobwebby brain and ends up looking so stinkin' cute! Yay me!

So, there you have me.....in a nutshell!
