I have long followed the blogs of many (I like to believe) like minded folk, but during this my year of being a stay-at-home-mum to new twins, I have come to rely on the blogging community as a way of keeping in touch with the world, getting motivated about art/craft/homemaking/child rearing endeavours, receiving validation that the afore-mentioned are valuable, meaningful, rewarding and respected pursuits, and appreciating the beauty of the everyday.  So, I thought, I can blog too…..  My posts are bound to be irregular, distracted and the result of a sleep-deprived mind.  But hey, it sure beats folding laundry.
