My blog is called Ginas Corner Crafts, because that is my store on Etsy, for those of you, whom this is the first time to read one of my blogs.
I don't just blog about my shop though, and blogging is a new adventure for me.
I like to blog about things I find interesting, or funny,or to remind myself of things I am trying to learn or accept.
I am originally from La/Ms area, but I lived in the Northwest for over 17yrs and it felt like home.
I moved to Ky 6yrs ago, for various reasons..one being my Mother was in bad health, and I was trying to get closer to her in case she needed me.
In these 6yrs, I still "Yearn" to go back to where I feel is home.. "The beautiful Northwest"
I can not do this at the time and I have been trying to learn acceptance.
I am trying to find the beauty in where I am, and truthfully Ky does have some pretty scenery.
I guess I just keep measuring it by Idaho and Oregon, and it will never compare to either.
There is a lot of things in the Northwest, I can not do here.
I am trying to get my "Pencil Shaving Flowers" back on the selling market. Here where I live, there are no towns close by with craft stores, where I sold my flowers before. There are no nearby craft shows..
So, I put them in an Etsy shop Ginascornercrafts.etsy.com
In the mean time I am trying to be thankful and enjoy the beauty that IS around me at this time in my life.
One thing about life is.. "It always changes"
Today, we took a short ride and I took pictures of some Ky scenery..
This is on the way to Ky River Campground, which is only about 20miles from my house.
I love these creeks with the clear water, and I was surprised to find one this close to me. I can't get out and "walk the creek" like I would like to though. My husband parked the car on the side of the road ,I got out of the car, and a car came around a curve and almost ran me down..
This is a rock formation in the Cove Springs Park here where I live. This is the first time we have been here, and it was so close to us!
This lovely picture is overlooking the town where I live, at the same park. One of my favorite things to do is find a high spot and overlook what is around me.
These are just the pictures we took today on the short ride.
Tomorrow for Memorial Day I hope to take a longer ride and find more pretty scenery.
I might not be able to move back to my beloved Northwest at this moment in time, but I will continue to find the beauty around me.
Be sure to visit my Etsy shop. I have hand turned flowers from pencil shavings, handmade woodwork creations, nice vintage pieces, and various eclectic crafts
