So this is my blog.....

   So hey.....I've been scaredtodeath excited to write this blog for a long time. I honestly have no idea what I am doing here but it's going to be fun(if you like pushing yourself off a cliff into the unknown kind of fun).   I'm hoping you hang in with me while I learn, improve and polish up this blog. It's a mix of regular life, insights and thoughts and of course the stuff I make. 
  I tend to be a little random and scattered, it's my nature and often my brain has been called the drunken squirrel party by people who love me.  And that is the truth of it, so many things roll around at the same time and it's hard to nail me down or explain why I do what I do. I do know that for as long as I can remember I have loved to make things from other things. Specifically fabric and yarn things. When I was supposed to be picking a college to attend and a major when asked what I wanted to do, I told my high school counselor "I want to make things"...she told me it wasn't a job. So I tried some other things but always at the heart of it was my desire and need to make things. 
   So this is my first post, I thought it would be much more perfect and sensational, I've certainly thought about it all for a very long time but when it comes right down to it, I'm not a perfect or sensational kind of girl. I 'm a little ragged and tattered. And always barefoot. Hence the name of my blog.  I am so very very happy you are here with me, and the drunken squirrels. 

<3 Barbara

  4. Welcome to the world of blogging. I started blogging when we bought this old house 7 years ago. You have been a real inspiration to me concerning my business. I'll visit your blog often but right now I need some shut eye!

  5. You know that I'd follow you anywhere ~ Maybe because I've been addicted since the Shabby days! LOL I wish you the best of luck with your blog. My own blogging experience has been hit or miss but I'm trying to get back in the swing.

  6. I love your post! I is so natural - like you - and not the least bit overly concerned about being stupidly polished - like you! Just the beauty that it is/you are. PLEASE keep blogging. You are made for it. My only complaint is that I was the "subscribe" button didn't work for me! I want my Barefoot and Tangled Blog Subscription! :-)

  7. I'm so glad you've joined the blogger world, Barbara -- everything you've written prior to this has left me in tears because you always reach my heart. And do remember that ragged and tattered people make the best stuff.
