Welcome to my blog...

Well, hi again. In case you can't tell, I am totally new at this blog thing. I mean, I love reading loads of great blogs, but my posting/publishing skills are rudimentary at best, so please be patient with me! Of course, I hope to learn more and get better over time. I am not exactly computer illiterate, but I kinda like old fashioned things, like pens and pencils. You may even ask why I am writing a blog - well, I guess it's because I love to create things, and there seems to be a great community out there making things and sharing ideas that I'd like to be a part of.

Perhaps I should tell you a little more about myself. I have a little enterprise called double happiness designs. I make handmade books and paper...umm....things - mainly using Japanese paper. I love the look and feel of Japanese paper, and most of the things I make end up having some kind of Asiany flair - like the bird card you see here. Horrible photo, but again, I hope to get better. I sell my things at craft fairs and local shops here in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Well, only one shop at the moment, but that's another thing I'm working on. Anyhow, I hope you'll come back to visit my blog if you're interested in the same things, or maybe even just to poke fun at my cruddy layouts and photos. At this stage, I can't be too fussy.
