I have been waiting for this day for a very long time now. I finally did IT! I jumped in with both feet and landed in the Blogosphere! I have to tell you I would not be here if it were not for The Blog Class, by Emily & Ryan over at one of my very favorite blogs, Jones Design Company. I did the class and here it is. My very own blog, Patina House and Studio. The name is full of meaning to me. First of all, I LOVE patina on any surface. Brass, copper, an aged window, fence post, etc. I love the natural beauty of time worn things. When I was thinking of a blog name I kept thinking about the word patina and the beauty that it represents. One day out of the blue it just all came full circle. Patina! Yes, Patina House & Studio! The way it applied to me so deeply was the word described “me”, the way I see myself in this amazing season of my life. You see, who I am today is a result of years and years gone by of heartache, joy, disappointment, happiness, growth, and the list could go on. It represents the myriad of life experiences and lessons that have brought me to who I am today. Hence the layers. The patina. I am who I am because of the beautiful layers of life that have occurred. So, with that being said, my hopes are to expose the beauty of a worn and weathered life! What I share comes from my experiences, my past. Even though some of my layers are not so pretty, they contribute to my patina.
I do hope you will come back regularly and see what I have going on. I will be featuring DIY tutorials, projects, sharing things I love, offering stories of how my FAITH carries me and slowly but surely unveiling my story as an artist and sharing with you my work. Hopefully before too long, I will have selected pieces of my artwork for sale on here! This is so exciting to me! My hopes are to post regularly on Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s. Please subscribe over on the right hand side so you will not miss a post.
