It's time...




















I've been wanting to do this for so long but never gotten there... but today it is time to do it! Start blogging, I mean :). I have no idea how to do it or how this works but I'm surely willing to try and learn.

The question has been whether to write in finnish or in english... and I've come to the conclusion that I want to write in english, which will be good practice for me and also that way all my friends abroad can read this too. I think I will use finnish sometimes too... because some things are much easier to describe in my own language.

This blog will be mostly about crafting... because that's what my life is about. I don't know where this will take me but hopefully I can inspire you and be inspired by you... isn't that what blogging is about?!



So, let the journey begin...

Mervi!!! I am soooooo happy to see you here!!! wow! Congratulations! I am so looking forward to your posts and let me put in my vote for you please writing in English! A little bit of Finnish here and there will be fine, I would love to learn a few words, too, but otherwise, I'm not going to understand you! I love the key for your first post. You are unlocking a new door! Let's see where it leads... xo Karen

I think I was writing it at the same minute you were commenting on mine! I had found you while looking at my blog stats - which I hardly ever do - and thought, oh dear, Mervi has a blog referring me and I didn't even notice yet! But I guess it was just perfect timing! xo

dear Mervi welcome on the blogland !
just seeing you here -- as well as two very nice friends we have in common in your blogroll -- warms my heart and is the kind of boost i needed this month, just as i had some questioning about my future as a blogger...
so here's to this beginning and the trip that will follow, i hope you will enjoy it :)
i will email you soon xoxo (i was having a long break off-line !)

ps : i visit several Finnish blogs even though I can't read them, so it wouldn't bother me that much, but "being able" to read you is of course a real bonus. however i also chose to write in English and not in my mother tongue so a larger number people can read my posts (for those who are interested)
and not only have a look on the photos

pps: hello Karen !

Thank you, Valérie :)! Reaching out for more people than just finnish speaking ones is a good choice, I think... although you're right about the fact that some blogs are wonderful just for looking at the photos. You don't always have to read the posts. Now it's time for bed... going to work tomorrow.

Oh yes, incredibly perfect timing :)! See you around!
