Introductions All Around


I'm opening up the blog today to all of my wonderful readers. If you author a blog, have a shop website, or wish to share anything else about yourself please leave a comment today. I'd love to know more about you and I'm know all of the others readers do too. It's been over a year since my last introductions post and it's time for an update. One of my good blog friends, Little Brown Pen, recently wrote a similar post and created a list of all her reader's blogs. I think this is a fabulous idea and I would love to do the same so don't be shy.
