Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

getting started


Starting a blog is a little intimidating -- for a number of reasons, but this is beginning to be fun now. I spent the whole afternoon figuring it out and it was harder than I thought it would be. Good to stretch new parts of the brain though. More than what I wanted to write is what I want to show on a blog with images and that appears to be a little more complicated than I imagined.

I feel as though I just got behind the wheel of a car for the first time. Directions in hand, heading down a twisty country road, my knuckles aren't white anymore from gripping the steering wheel. I'm looking out the window and thinking about turning the radio on. It's pretty in craftland and I'm watching for a sunny cottage on a lake where linens are flapping on the clothesline, pals are rocking on the porch and lunch is just about ready.
