Check It!

Hi there, Friend!

I've made big changes today!  Check out this blog--notice anything different?! 

Driving to work today, I was inspired to do something creative...then, I thought about my blog, then, I thought about my quilt patterns, and that I should do a pattern page and show them off-


the blog pages are growing!!

I now have a 'Ruby Lagoon Quilt Co.' pattern page! 

I don't have an official website, but this is a start!  I'm excited about learning how to blog, then changing the template and background to personalize it.

(I can see why people get into this)

I went exploring to the other areas of the 'Blogger Dashboard' and began changing colors and backgrounds and text shapes and sizes. 


What do you think? 

I sorta like the sophisticated edge of charcoal grey with the punch of color.  Also, I get to have Palm Trees in the background! 

(this is very important if you have a business named,
'Ruby Lagoon Quilt Co.'!)

(see how much I love the 'asides'--me talking in parentheses?!!)

I haven't figured out yet how to have a conversation blog-wise and then switch it over to my side-comments.  I guess I could use a different font, but would it look like I was talking to myself? 

hmmm!  I do THAT already!  haha!

Here's something I can put you onto--a wonderful website I found for quotes...there are so many, but this one in particular has primo ones:


you're able to put in whatever type of quote you'd like, and up they pop!

This is so great for Journaling, Card-making, Speech-writing, Wall-painting, Shower-singing and many other creative endeavors!

I have no idea whose site it is, I just like it personally. So, here's a quote from the site for you today:

“Enthusiasm is that secret and harmonious spirit which hovers over the production of genius.”
                                                                            Isaac Disraeli

It's great to know that if we face challenges with enthusiasm, that we can make great things happen!   

(At least that's what this says to me...and I am NOTHING if not enthusiastic!)

I love that you are sharing your amazingly beautiful quilts on your blog. I also happen to thing your "asides" are fun and really represent you!
