Starting out

Well hello, this is my first post and I'm a bit nervous as to what to write....
I seem to spend alot of time looking through other peoples blogs, so many beautiful pieces of art to enjoy and learn from, it can really start the ideas flowing for my own pieces.
So far I have kept it really simple and just entered various pictures that I have made onto a local craft shops monthly challenge blog - but I've found it really difficult to upload my pictures, when I haven't got a blog to start with. 
So I decided that maybe the way to go forward is to start up my own blog and learn some new computer skills along the way, hopefully.
I'm hoping that it will feel nurturing to feel more part of the crafting community too, plus I've got more chance of winning some free craft stuff......that would be a bonus!

Below is last weeks picture, which I entered onto The Craft Barn Alphabet Challenge...Q for Quince

Hope you likey
