The Hesitant Artist

It's my birthday and I'll start a blog if I want to.


I once had a professor who told me I don't like the limelight, but I paint with a big stick. I guess that stuck with me.

Hesitant- tending to hesitate : slow to act or proceed

Artist- a follower of a pursuit in which skill comes by study or practice; One who makes their craft a fine art
What is my art?  I love to paint, decorate my home, be crafty, lots of DIY projects, cook, bake, relax, and spend time with my dogs and my husband.  Everyday life can be art. 
I'm an introvert, and a shy one at that, so this blog will be an interesting experiment for me.  I've never considered myself to be a great writer, and my grammar skills are not what they should be, but I've been wanting to start a blog for a while, and there is no time like the present. 
I'm 29 today, and I feel a need to end my twenties right and have a proper welcome for a new decade in my life.  Anyone who knows me well knows I love glitter and all things that sparkle.  So I intend to shine like it's my birthday.  Breakin' out the birthday shoes!
