guest post at the creative connection

I am the current guest-blogger at The Creative Connection blog at their In YOUR WORDS section. I feel as excited and nervous as when I published my first post, wondering and hoping if it would receive any comments. (I begged friends to leave comments and 3 of them obliged)

TCC recently contacted me about being featured. I had to write a 200-300 word blog post and after much thought, decided to write about how tinkering began for me. I chose the title My Junk Evolution playing of course, off of Ki Nassauer's Junk Revolution name.

I would be so honored to have you read my post entitled My Junk Evolution and leave a comment. Thank you so much!
