Hi, I'm Emmie

I have a few friends that blog, and I certainly read blogs, but I have yet to blog for myself.  Until now.

I've got a lot going on in my life (both good and bad) and I've decided that the answer is not to splash it all over facebook or whine about it to my friends, but rather "blog it out" so I can leave it behind.  This will be an experiment, probably a very messy one, but I plan to do my best to "blog out" all the craziness of my life.

Hi, I'm Emmie.  I'm a graduate student in Kansas currently dating a soldier in the Army.  He's currently 57 days into his second deployment to Iraq.  Though I'm thankful that he is in a very safe place, I haven't adjusted all that well and I miss him terribly.  I love all things crafty, especially sewing and jewelry-making, but due to my grad program I rarely have time for these things :(

I chose "Blue But Beautiful" on a whim, mainly because I'm not feeling all that creative at the moment.  Maybe I'll talk about that later.

  1. A runner who sews...I thought I was the only one. :-) I too am in grad school though so I understand about finding time for the extras being hard. Welcome to blogging, I've found it's a great way to "air it out"!
