Why I LOVE Blogging!

Why do I love blogging? Well, blogging is fun. It's also addictive. I have found so many fantastic, wonderful, inspirational blogs that really get my creativity flowing. I never knew there were so many blogs relating to what I love to do---scrapping, paper crafting and altered art. I just joined Cupids Charms---a wonderful blog by a woman who creates jewelry from vintage finds---fantastic stuff! She's being featured in an upcoming Artful Blogging issue due on newsstands on May 1st. Because of this wonderful news, she is hosting a Beautiful Blogging party at her blog on May 1st. Please stop by and join us! The addy is: But, back to why I love to blog.

First of all, I never thought I would create, let alone, keep up with a blog. This is new to me and I'm still in the process of making this blog better and better in order to bring in followers--those that I admire and who (hopefully) will admire my work. Blogging is such a great opportunity to learn, to teach, to discover, to validate ourselves through our creativity and for what we love. I create scrapbook pages that tell a story and I'm also getting started in a business to create pages and albums for others who either are not inclined to scrap or just don't have the time. My business is Loridee Designs. I just created the blog a short time ago, not too long after creating A Scrap Mom's Musings. I also delve in other paper arts and am getting my feet wet with mixed media. Visiting other blogs has inspired me so much to create a better blog, to create better creations and to create new friendships. No wonder blogging is addictive!

I can't wait to meet new people and feel the inspiration! . So, why do I love blogging? It's a great way as I said to find inspiration and a fun way to make new friends. I'm still learning this blogging stuff, but so far, I'm LOVING it!
