Welcome to Blissed!

How excited are you??!! I'm finally getting down to business and starting a blog. Well, I'm excited. But also kinda nervous.... I've never blogged before. As a matter of fact, I've been resisting the whole virtual social networking sites, hoping that its 'just a trend'. But alas, it looks like its catching on. Martha Stewart even had a segment on her show today about social networking. Well, if Martha can do it, so can I.

So, what is so interesting about me and my life that you would want to read about it? Hum....

I have to admit, I'm doing this for purely selfish reasons. I have two businesses to promote and everyone seems to think that this is the way to do it.

My first business is Blissed Paper Arts. I love playing with paper, glue, ribbon, fabric..... I love pictures of birds and flowers..... I love vintage stuff, springtime, long walks on the beach....

I want to share my art with others. So I started an Etsy store,

Stop right here and go check out my store. I'll wait........

dum dee dum do do do la la llllaaaaa

What did you think? I have lots more to put on there so check back. My problem has been getting the photos of the items to look right. Its tougher than I thought it would be.

My second business is being a referral partner for a wellness company. This business has been a priority lately, because frankly, we need the money. Property tax hike - let's leave it at that.

I love the company and the products (free of toxins and harmful chemicals and they're better than store brands, less expensive too) and would love to share with you. Go to for more info. Please.

Well there you go. I did it. I wrote my first blog post. Oh so scary, but oh so satisfying.


  1. Oh, you seem so interesting and talented. I think I will purchase all the items in your fantastic etsy shop.

    Okay, I know its sad to make a comment on my own post, but it looked so emtpy.

  2. Welcome Karen! I can't wait to follow you, your work is awesome, so great to have you join us in the etsy mixed media forum, too!
