I started this blog on February 23, 2008. There is no stopping me! I have been on the keyboard every day since then.
I thought that I would send you back to the beginning today. After I had written for a little while, I noticed that there were people following me. I honestly didn't know what that meant at the time. There are now 1376 people following me around.
I simply started writing it to keep track of what I was doing in miniature. I found that I was enjoying the writing as much as I was enjoying the miniatures.
I just kept going because it was fun and I could go back and read what I had been doing on any given day didn't show up until a couple years later.
I do wish that the internet had been in place when I started doing minis. I do remember all of the minis that I have done over the years, but unfortunately, not as many details as I would like.
A couple of years after I started the blog, Tessie came in one day whilst I was writing. The first words that she said, when she saw what I was. "OK. But where am I in all of this???". She was not happy. She continued with, "If I'm not in there, it's not at all accurate!".
I decided that she was right. She was involved in a lot of the minis that I was doing". So.... Tessie got involved. She even demanded that I put a "thingie"(that's what she calls it) in the sidebar to tell everybody that she was involved. I did.
As we went along, she got more demanding and wanted a house(or two or more... and friends to play with). I never dreamed that she would have more fans that I did!
Anyway, there are no photos today. There are just two URLs. One is for the very first blog entry. And the other one, Tessie made me put in... That's the one where she showed up and started demanding things should go her way!
The Blog start. http://caseymini.blogspot.com/2008/02/here-i-go-again.html
Tessie's first shot at fame! http://caseymini.blogspot.com/2009/01/movin-on-up.html
I don't expect you to read the blog from start to finish, but I have had a handful of people write and tell me that they did just that! Crazy People!
Anyway, have fun!
I promise I will be back to normal in a couple of days. I woke up at midnight with a sore throat. I am going back and lay down to try to get rid of it now
See you Tomorrow!
