Hello all. This is my first time officially “blogging.” There was a time, long ago, before the kool kids came up with the term “blog,” that I used to post my thoughts online regularly. But it was less about my thoughts and more like a narrative of my amusing social life, so readers could feel like they were *there* with me and my pals.

Anyway do not panic: this is not going to be a boring “Valerie has such deep thoughts, come and read them” blog. If you want to read my deep thoughts, well, you can’t because my diary is in my underwear drawer. If you want my analysis on important national issues, that’s too bad because I won’t tell you where I work or how to find the weekly updates on federal issues I write for my day job. However, if you want to know what I think about craftiness, fashion, independent business, creativity, and things along that line, well then go ahead and bookmark away!

Why is my blog called “insatiable need?”
Am I some kind of crazy collector? Am I a shopaholic? Do I have an addictive personality? Not at all. Back in my immediate post-collegiate years we had such drive. For everything….work, school, play. Nobody ever sat still, there was never any need to relax. We were always DOING something or planning to do something. One day I said we had an insatiable need to keep moving. The girls and I decided that was a catchy phrase and when we opened our own club one day, that’s what it would be called. The name also became that of our future event planning firm, our future Kentucky Derby-winning thoroughbred, our future all-girl band with male lead singer, and many, many more futures.

Anyway, none of that has happened yet. But now I have a blog, so here we are.
