In the beginning…

by  CourTney

The first entry is always the hardest.  I don’t want to be one of those “Dear Diary” types, but I suppose that gives a focus as to who you are speaking to.  I suppose I need to start with the purpose.  My purpose is to write about the new adventures of starting up a….something.  It’s to small to say company, but it’s a big idea that needs a name.  How about this.  I will introduce the characters…

Hi, my name is CourTney.  I’m an editor.  I sit at work for anywhere between 40 to 90 hours a week. At a desk.  I love to do other things.  Many other things, but one day my life ran away from me.  So, this is me getting it back.  I grew up surrounded by artistic people and need to grab ahold of those values and bring them back to a higher position in my life.  I love to knit, paint, do yoga, sew…<insert other crafts here.>

I live and work in NJ/NY and my BFF <Tara> lives in Ohio.  Tara is my crafty partner in crime.  She taught me to crochet and knit.  When I moved away, part of me hid.  I can’t speak for her, but I think the same type of deal happened with her.  So, this is us, joining forces and crafting together, from afar.    We will both be writing, when the want/need hits us.

This is the journal of our affairs.

To be continued…
