New to Blogging

Hello All,

This is my first attempt to blog on the net. After seeing my friend Debbe starting one, I thought I would give it a try. It most likely will take some time for me to get set up properly, due to the fact, at my age, I went back to College. That takes all my time, but there is sunshine at the end of the road in April..I Will Be Done! Looking forward to trying new things after then.

A bit about myself..

I love to do creative things with my hands, sculpting, carving, sewing, embroidery , folk art and oils. Recently I just started weaving and rug hooking-which I really like.

Married for 35 years and have two children and three grandchildren and will be blessed with two more this May.
I live in Northern Ontario, city called Sudbury, but owned a Picture Framing store in southern Ontario for ten years in a little town of Norwood. I loved doing that, but my ties to my family in the north was calling and I wanted to be back to my grandchildren.
So here I an age with experience but lack the education which most jobs request. Therefor my next experience is College..


  1. Hi Sonya!!

    How wonderful to see you blogging!! With all you do, you are amazing! School, kids, grandkids, hubby,you go girl!

    I guess I need more help blogging as I posted this email on my blog,lol! Anyway, I hope school is going well, I am off to Toronto for 5 days with my sister, rug hooking, penny rugging, crafts of all kinds, if I have to live here, the only thing I can do is to try and get out of Dodge as often as I can,lol! I will be back next Friday or Saturday, depending on the weather. Take good care, nice job on the blog!! Warm hugs,Debbe
