So . . . Lisa Day here, and I’m blogging. Well, a poor excuse for it anyways as I prefer the learn-as-you-go method. With everything. Ask my mom. As history shows, I never heeded her “advice” as I always thought it was her way of trying to boss me around. And hey – who wants their mom bossing them around? In retrospect, listening to her probably would have saved some time, money and heartache but life lessons are hard to come by when under another’s influence. Self taught is the way to go, if you ask me. And you’re reading this, so by default, you asked me. (Oh, and mom, since you’re probably going to be one of the few subscribers – you know I mean it in the best way possible way – since my independent nature is definitely a trait inherited from you.)
Anyways, back to to my primal attempt in showing the world what I’m all about. Everything I read in reference to blogging suggested narrowing the focus to attract a more defined audience. I say- NO! My brain is generally all over the place, so it would only be fitting to conduct a blog accordingly. If I were to attempt to categorize this blog I couldn’t. Not by a long shot.
I really like to create. Anything. I realize the ambiguous nature of that statement but it’s the stone cold truth. Whether it be as mundane as an out-of-order sign to hang on the bathroom stall at work or using serious elbow grease to re-purpose old furniture – I love it. There is really nothing better than a blank canvas and no location that is off limits – office, kitchen, living room, bedroom, garage, and yard – you name it and I’ll be there searching for my next project. I’m a firm believer that Pinterest was created just for me. Well me, and the other million or so like-minded folk.
I can’t count the times in a week that I hear the following questions: “how did you do that?”, “where ever did you find that?” or “can I get your recipe?” Instead of having to recite a play-by-play each time, I thought there has to be some way to collect my projects, creations, etc. in some sort of forum that could be shared with others. A BLOG, you say?? Brilliant! Well brilliant may be a bit strong as the thought has been crossing my mind for years, just never really dug my heels in until now. Now, in the yuppiest tone possible, with my head down while looking over my glasses, I’ll answer those questions with “just go to my blog”.
You may not have asked for it – but I’ll be providing snarky commentary throughout my posts as puns, sarcasm and word play are my kryptonite. It began with the title and will not end. Ever. That is one thing I can guarantee with 100% accuracy. Get it? “Rome wasn’t built by a Day?” (Last name = Day). Aw yeah – I saw that eye roll. Keep ’em coming.
And so it begins . . .
