Well it's been quite some time, hasn't it? I assume my readership has decreased drastically and I have no one but myself to blame. But honestly...blogging is just not that important to me anymore. Wait...scratch that. I actually LOVE blogging. I love creating. Taking photos of what I create. And posting them to share with wonderful YOU.
I feel tugged in gazillion directions and something always needs to give and its usually the old blog. I seriously want the secret formula to being a great wife and mom while having a thriving blog. Is it 2 hours sleep? Do people make their kids their own personal sweatshop and teach then to use hot glue guns and photoshop like a boss? Seriously, it takes many hours for me to pour into blog projects. Too many hours.
Just today my kids were asking me about kinds of clouds. And what they are called. And the shapes they form. And I just wanted to freeze the moment knowing that their precious heart and inquisitive minds are what I need to pour into. You have heard all of this before. My lamenting about my blogging slackerness. No, you can't use it in scrabble but its totally a word. And here I am doing it again.
I even have this dream of opening an Etsy shop. Instagram has been so inspirational with talented people who got my rear in gear and I started cranking out stuff for a little old shop. And blogging went "poof!" Instagram became my new bestie because....HELLO...one pic + one sentence = boom....you're done. Now that's my speed as of late.
THEN...summer came. And my whole world changed. Kids are home all.the.time. We are actually tackling full time homeschool next year. I started Whole 30 (holy cow is eating like that life changing) Vacations happened. And then...all my Etsy making just stopped too.
I look into these little faces who ask me to dance to the Frozen soundtrack or bake cookies or snuggle and I'm like..."What is more important than THAT?"
So I am kind of doing things here and there. Slowly but surely. If you follow me on IG you have seen the above pictures of things I love creating for parties and packaging. Hopefully some things will be in my shop. Someday. Who knows?
Just wanted to check in. Say hi. Catch you up a bit.
Hope all of you are doing wonderful.
