Around Here - Big Changes

This is a really difficult post for me to write... And I know it's not really a big deal in the world, but it is for me, in my world.

I've been writing on this blog quite consistently, for about 3 and a half years, and before that I had a wordpress blog (here) for a few months.... that makes almost 4 consecutive years of blogging. Crazy!

What started as me sharing my creations and crafts slowly turned into me sharing my life, my ideas, my thoughts, and my goals for life. It became my place to share with the world... to figure out myself, and what I wanted to do next. Thanks to this space I learned not only about quilts, sewing and crafting, but about photography, video making, writing, decorating, and so much more!

Since starting full time work I have been trying to maintain all the hobbies, and side projects that I do.. video making, blogging, sewing, writing, decorating, and the list goes on and on... I've slowly come to accept that I can't do them all at the level I was previously. And believe me, this has not been an easy thing for my 'Type A' self to accept.

So after thinking about it far too long - I've decided to let go of my blog schedule entirely. I will no longer post Wordless Wednesdays, or Thankful for's, in any sort of consistent way. I basically wont be posting in a consistent way at all. I will post when I am inspired, or motivated or just when I want to write! I am hoping this will be at least twice a month, but I am not setting any limits, rules or regulations on this. I need this space to be completely stress free.. which (for me) means having no posting schedule at all....yikes.

Maybe I will only need this brake for a few months, maybe I'll never blog again, I'm not sure! But I know that I need to be honest with myself that I have taken on too much, and I need to limit my weekly commitments.

If you made it to the end of this post, congratulations! You are a champ! Thank you so very much for reading, and for following along on my crafty, messy, blog-y adventures!


  1. Its understandable - I have never been a fan of scheduled blog posts on my own blog, I have always blogged when I feel for it. I do hope you will continue blogging since this is my first visit to your blog and I really like it here :)

    1. I do plan to keep writing! Just more on my own time. Thanks for the kind words!
