Okay, so I'm finally joining the blog world and throwing my two cents out there. Let's make this a fun Q&A and get this blog set up.
Q: Why start a blog?
A: I think I have something to offer, and even if no one ever were to see it, I'll be happy to have a record of all the fun 'crafty crap' I do.
Q: Why not start a blog?
A: I think fear. (Yes that sounds silly, I'm well aware) But seriously, since I've joined Twitter, I've been following many amazingly talented people and am now following their blogs. I was afraid that I could never compare to the sheer talent of blogs like Miss Mustard Seed or be as fun and peppy as blogs like Mod Podge Rocks!
But who cares!? I am me, and that's all there is to it!
Also a HUGE thank you to Jennifer (@garagesalediary), Jill (@JunkyVagobond), and Cari (@CariCucksey) for encouraging me to start blogging :-) Please tell me you're following them, they are really some fabulous ladies! And please make it a point to encourage someone today; you never know what your kind words will do.
This image from Pinterest was the final push to make me do it:
Although shouldn't that be 'lose'?
Q: Why is the blog called Pearl Gateway? A: My middle name that I share with my mom is Pearl, and I absolutely love it. Something so ''yester-year" or some other such about it. I'd say 'vintage' but that word couldn't be more overused at the moment. Anyway, I digress! Gateway represents my love of travel, a connection to somewhere new. I also take it as my connection to creativity, and hopefully, my potential to connect creatively with others.
Q: So what am I going to blog about? A: Anything CREATIVE! Papercrafts, mosaics, painting, furniture re-dos, all that 'crafty crap' as I call it. I also consider garage saling creative (creative with your money, as well as being able to see the treasure potential from someone's trash), so I'll post some fun finds. I think fashion is creative, so maybe if I have a cute outfit, I'll post that too. I'm not really a cook, but every now and then I find a fab recipe that must be shared - and hey, cooking is creative - so maybe I'll post something super yummy with you!
Looking forward to being creative with you,
