Blogging Project... BEGIN!

Well, after I started noticing pain in my wrist from scrolling through so many crafting blogs, I decided to try my hand at making my own blog. I figure, if nothing else, it will give my hands a different type of exercise to prevent carpel tunnel syndrome... or whatever it is I'm feeling in my wrist! Right now, I'm thinking my husband is going to be my only reader, but we'll see :) (Thanks for the support honey!)

Let me introduce myself...
My name is Rebecca and I live in Southern GA (at the moment).  I'm married and have a little boy born October 2009.  A few months before Jonah was born, a small business opportunity fell into my lap.  Unhappy with the diaper bag options I saw in the stores, I decided to make my own.  I posted pictures of it on Facebook and soon was asked to make a few to sell!  Those first buyers were so happy to be able to buy a bag with their custom colors/prints.  SO, Better Life Bags was born.  We specialize in making handmade custom diaper bags, purses, and baby items.  We set ourselves apart by giving all proceeds to those in need (usually through  Check us out at!

January brings a whole new start to life. It's funny how all of America seems to "start over" come January - with new resolutions and goals. I figure I should jump on the bandwagon and make some goals of my own:
1. Send birthday and anniversary cards. (This was my goal last year, too - but I fizzled out after February... SO Jan and Feb bday people are really going to benefit from this resolution each year!)
2. Spend less time on my computer and more time crafting, reading, and playing with my baby boy.
3. Develop deeper relationships with my family.
4. Figure out if I can MAKE something before I BUY it!

I figure 4 goals is plenty. I've seen a lot of people posting their top 10 goals for 2010, but this seems insurmountable for me.

So, there you have it - my first post on my new blog... no crafts to show for this one, but I have TONS of ideas up my sleeve (many are inspirations from other blogs)! Speaking of... what are some of your favorite craft blogs out there?!

... anyone there?!
