Shake My Etch-A-Sketch…


This blog is a new adventure for me, as I take more leaps toward my love of writing and sharing thoughts with others in a new forum… well at least for me anyway.  In trying to define exactly what I would write about it became a hodgepodge of many ideas in addition to what I should name this blog.  Thanks to my husband who helped me come up with “My Etch-A-Sketch Life”.

Do you remember when you would play on an Etch-A-Sketch to create something fantastic?  I would be so proud of my creation and showing it off to my parents and friends, it took strength of will to shake it up to create that new palate for my next work of art.  Sometimes I would receive praise to encourage me further, which in turn gave me the enthusiasm that my next creation on that grey board would be better than the last.  It was usually a gamble on whether it was better or not, but it was fun trying and of course when it went a little pear shaped you could give it a little shake, and well you know…

The difference is when someone shakes your Etch-A-Sketch and your no longer in control – ready for the clean canvas?  Ready or not, it’s what you do with it when your given the chance in your personal and/or your professional life.   Keep it exciting, shake your Etch-A-Sketch and in doing so, join me in the adventure.

  1. The person who did that Etch-a-Sketch pictured above probably placed it in a glass case secured by an alarm and guarded by large dogs who barked and snarled at anyone who came near.

    Good luck with your new blog, Cassie! It’s a lot of fun.


  2. Great idea! I like the name, opener and all. Have fun with it. I’m trying to warm up to the idea of vloggging (video blogging), which seems a little intimidating and awkward, but I’ll get there. Have fun with your blog! You can follow mine too! (despite the domain name, it’s still a wordpress) 😉
