So, here I am.....

The girl that said she'd never blog. The far from computer savvy girl that is always up for a challenge despite a serious lack of time.My blog goals. Do I have blogging goals? Hmmm, I guess I should. So I pledge to be funny, lighthearted, not vent or complain to much and maybe just maybe share a crumb of wit and wisdom on occassion.I will most likely chat about etsy, my addiction and muse. the incredible artsists and friends I have found in a community that oozes with creativity, friendship, support and a home for all things handmade.You will hear me ramble about the insanity of my life including my 3 boys, ages 12, 16 and 53. Yes, that last one I am married to, but trust me, he is just as much boy as man. After 17 years of marriage I find myself raising him along with them. Then again, he would probably say the same of me at times. I will often speak of friends I would go to the ends of the earth for and a family that more often than not defines dysfunction. Then again, I strongly believe a functional family is the stuff legends are made of.I am a lover of music of all kinds and not so much the TV ( except maybe Glee). I have an addiction to handmade glass, especially venetian and lampwork beads as well as unique pottery. I have made a concerted effort to tame my jewelry fetish with my own creations which can be seen at http://www.kjbeads.etsy.com/If you haven't figured out by now, I can jabber my jaws and my fingers as if someone could care what I have to say.

So, a few days ago, I get a package.

It's from a Hussy.

Okay, so i have these gal pals. We call ourselves Hussies. It started as a fun, lighthearted response to some bad vibes goin'round. Well, over the past year, it has evolved into some great friendships. It seems, we all own similar boats. Some are newer models, some old classics. Some seat more than others, but bottom line is, we all understand the work it takes to keep our boats afloat.

We laugh, cry, share, listen and generally boost each other on a daily basis. Mostly, we laugh. Hard! Often at ourselves and each other. It's waaaaay cheaper than therapy and alot more fun.

Sometimes I find myself wishing some of the new found friends lived a little closer. There are a few I'd love to share a drink with or head out shopping with. Then I stop and think, no. It's kind of a special friendship we have. this talk everyday and know so much about each other, yet we've never met thing. I never thought I would ever in a million years find myself on an internet forum. Now I am there daily. What a treat too.

Thanks to great friends and long live the Hussy!
