Testing, testing 1,2,3

Well now I have a blog I better see if it works.

So 1, 2, 3 here we go….

Hellooo everyone,

I’m Toria and I’m slightly loopy and extremely tired after having spent the afternoon trying to set up my new blog on the godaddy WordPress thingy page. Yes that’s about as techy as I get! The whole point was that I wanted to do it so that I could say I worked it out and that my brain actually started firing some of those neurons that have been laying dormant for some time. Throughout all that time I’ve had my little Tink sat next to me holding up the fort ?.

I will apologise now for any grammatical errors. I am dyslexic and not matter how hard I try I often can not see where you need to put punctuation. I have been trying for years to work it out and It just doesn’t happen.  It drives my Graham potty. He is a perfectionist when it comes to the written word, and rightly so. I am often being told how badly I have written something. Hey ho, life goes on and I will always do my best.

Now why am I writing a blog? Lots of people do and some of them are plain boring. Mine could be just the same, let’s face it I can witter about nothing for one hell of a long time.  What I am going to try and do is talk about my life and the trials and tribulations I’ve been through but hopefully not in some morbid depressing way but in a way that can inspire you to get up and do something in your life.  I would also like to talk about my crafting and how through my jewellery making journey I have managed to live through and survive meningitis.  I might even post the odd pattern for some of my beading and crochet projects.

I will also be talking a lot about a wonderful page called Conscious Crafties and each week I will feature one maker who I will be paired with to share their items.  I will say more about them another day.

So fingers crossed this works and my first blog post goes up ok.

I’m off to find some food now.

Have a great evening everyone.

Toria xx
