From the Desert: My First Blog Post


OK, so I’m late with the new year wishes, but that’s me. I’m behind most of the time, but I’m always trying. And I’ve been stewing over my blog name and my first blog post. So . . . just get started already!

I live in the Arizona desert with my significant other. We have a few acres out of town, so planning ahead for groceries and the like is a must. I have a "real" job or two, but I started another one. I like to make things. And . . . since a person can have only so many purses and tote bags and soap and such, I started to give them away and now sell them. So, I started a little etsy shop called Lucinda’s Nice Things. It’s named for my grandmother and the little story is on the front page of my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/lucindasnicethings

In my etsy shop, I sell things that my mother, friends, and I make ourselves (pillows, purses, bags, soap); things we’ve collected (beads and other treasures); and vintage items (linens, and some wonderful jewelry). Here are some photos of the great things on my little shop.

The things we make are made in our own homes with our own hands. All of us are smoke free. My friend Kim has cats, but, so far, Kim has listed only jewelry for sale.

Some plans here at the Fun in the Desert blog include little bits about things that inspire us, including art, craft, sewing, quilting, soaping, designing, walking, being in the outdoors, cooking, eating(!), being with friends and family, encouragement, things that make us smile, how-tos, and lots more!

I'm inspired by these wonderful, colorful, and inspiring blogs, among others: http://rikrakstudio.blogspot.com/

I'm so sorry if this is rough around the edges, but give me some time (and some pointers) with this blog thing and I'll try to figure this out.

So, please stop by when you have a few minutes. Leave comments on my blog when you can (say hello, give me feedback, disagree with me if you want). Just don’t be rude. You can also email me at lucindasnicethings at gmail dot com or at denny1600 at gmail dot com.

What a great and exciting day. Wishing you and yours a wonderful and happy new year. Thanks for visiting!
