Thx for actually listing some companies that you have had positive experience with.

Mom of 5 looking to start a Blog and have many questions. I am an avid crafter, recently unemployed from the corporate world and have decided to take up my previous love again in hopes of getting my old business back up and running. I mainly work in beading but have dabbled along w/ many venues of handmade items and have also been a techniques demonstrator and teacher for Stampin' Up! which led to personal technique classes w/ many locally owned businesses as well as one major craft store. I hope to get back into doing shows and classes along w/ Blogging. I am looking to share my experiences w/ my family, my craft, and my venture into becoming a Blogger.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Keep it Real, Keep it Fun, Keep it Honest & reach out!
I feel that anything I say on my Blog will be a reflection of me and who I am. I also want to keep people involved so they stay interested. So my posts will have a combination of informative, fun, and real. I love being creative but I believe that honesty about all things is best. That is whether it is my work, something I review, use, buy; or speaking about my experiences. & Reaching out so people can relate to me and my Blog but not feel uneasy, unwanted, unappreciated.
I have been blogging since...
