I guess I am a newbie. I previously did digital scrap-booking back in 2005. A lot has happened since then but now that I am taking more and more photos of my new hobby, I figured I would try to get back into the swing of things. I recently began raising my own chickens. Since my children are starting to get old enough to fly the "coop", I figured I needed to do something with some of my spare time and two fold, it will produce fresh eggs for us. I never thought chickens were interesting until I started researching them. I had no idea what they could do for me. It is relaxing for me to spend time in the run with them. They are social birds. Anywho... I also do quilting in my spare time. I have a ton of unfinished projects I have started over the years, so it's time I get started on rekindling that old flame. (so to speak). I hope to be on often, but if I disappear, know that I am not far away.
