First ever blog post

As you will soon learn I am new at blogging but will try to post an entry everyday to keep myself motivated to create something every day.  Be it art, clean laundry, love of my husband or talking about my beautiful dogs. 

Today was a clean day as I tried to do final cleaning of our recently flooded basement.  No not from rain but a malfunctioning ejector pit.  Yeah, gross.  Floors are mopped, carpet is clean and the dehumidifier is running.  While I wait for a dry basement I find myself creating this new blog to procrastinate going to the grocery store for those much-needed sustenance items.  My wonderful husband usually does this chore but I am trying to help him out by doing it for him this week.  Why you might ask, because he will be golfing tonight (and was all weekend) and we have no fresh bread or milk.  I know you feel sorry for us but don’t as this will give me a chance to stock up on things he never buys and I like to keep on hand.  He will be sorry he golfed instead of shopping when he sees the tally on the receipt but that is the price he must pay for having fun.

I hope to get a little art time in today but we will see.


About kboat

I’m a native of La Porte, Indiana. When I was growing up we didn’t have much money, so I made my gifts for others with materials I found out and around. I loved it. And I have to say I was pretty good at it. People always liked what I gave them. I went to work for 26 years as an employee of a major asphalt paving company. I began as a secretary and eventually made my way to office manager. Needless to say I mostly only dreamed about my art - filling my mind with many ideas. Although the company did take advantage of my skills once in a while. For example, I created in-house materials for an open house. I loved “keeping my hand in” whenever an opportunity presented itself. Then I retired. And ... funny thing ... all those pent-up ideas I used to dream about began to roll out. I joined ATC (Artists Trading Cards) on line, I took classes and tutorials and learned about the processes of creating art. Today, I pursue these learning opportunities to open myself to new ideas and techniques. I also love opportunities to assist in classes for special populations. I find I learn a lot from those who have no preconceptions about what they should be doing. I’m eager to learn new things. Mostly I don’t have any idea what I set out to make. I simply let the ideas find me. The result is a wide variety of media and expression triggered by my experiences in every-day life. I hope you enjoy my work. View all posts by kboat
