Over two years ago...


I was brousing my old posts.. I am nearing the big 300, so I decided to peak backwards in time and see where I started. Abbie's Place was begun in January of '06 as a space for me to record my ideas for new art pieces. A way to funnel them out of my head and lay them down in words. Work through them and hopefully make sense of the images spinning around me. Ideas would pop up at the most inconvient of times; driving down the road, walking the isles of the grocery store or at two in the morning. My blog has definitely taken many twists and turns over the past few years, but I think it has evolved into a nice place for me (and hopefully you). It is my place. It encompasses alot more now, I guess, because I am more of a person than I used to be. I invite you to stay with me awhile more, visit, chat, comment, and critique. (sometimes I need a good slap in the face!) My writing needs work, I know, but I write the way I speak. More in conversation with you, instead of writing 'at' you.
The image above is an ATC I did in Jan of 2006. I'm not sure who has it now, but I know it was traded along time ago. Thank you Blogger for preserving for me, the image is long gone from my PC too.. but blogger still had it.

300 is huge! Don't you find it just satisfying to throw out your ideas to the world and get feedback? It's pretty neat!

You do need to change it , it`s a natural process of things , and i wish i could write better sometimes too , but like you , i say it as if i were speaking out to people .

Congratulations on the milestone. I wouldn't be so concerned with your writing "needing work". This is not an assignment and we're not grading. I've always believed that the internet and the amazing things that have developed, specifically blogging, are extremely important. Why? Because people are writing again! My high school English teacher is cheering from heaven I tell you. Before the internet when was the last time you wrote a story, or composed a "what I did on summer vacation" theme. Write on sister! You do just fine.
