Consider me on blogging vacation...

I'm so sorry for my absence.  Trust me, I really, really, really want to be crafting and blogging.  I really miss cranking out a project and then showing it off here, and I miss the blogging community and all the inspiration it gives me.

Unfortunately, it's taking a lot longer to get the hang of this "working full time" thing.  I thought that since I worked and went to college full-time and still found time for craft projects and blogging that this would be a piece of cake, but it isn't!  Especially since Tyler's in law school now, too.  It's been hard for me to find the time, money and motivation to get up and do a project on Saturdays like I did in college

Instead, I've been doing a little crocheting or reading on weeknight evenings, drooling over Pinterest on my lunch breaks, and sleeping late, spending time with my busy law-student boyfriend and catching up on house work on the weekends.

Now that we live in a house, weekends seem to be consumed by things like leaf-raking...

...and raking up puppies.

Sometimes on Sunday afternoons I get the urge to spend some time behind my sewing machine, but the prospect of having to go to Jo-Ann's to get fabric and then photograph it all and write about it here discourages me just as quickly as I was inspired.  And that's not what crafting or this blog is supposed to be about!  This blog is supposed to inspire me, not to deter me!

So for now, I'm going to take a blogging vacation.  Don't worry...I'm sure I'll be in from time to time.  I'm just not going to gaurantee regular content because the thought of having to blog about the crafts I make makes me not want to craft at all.  I need space to craft without the pressure of having to make something more out of it, you know?  I want crafting to be what it originally was for me again...a joy, a break, and a creative outlet.  I'm sure you can understand, right?

So if I have the time, I'll stop by and say hello.  I really do miss you guys, after all!  But if not, I won't make myself feel guilty for my lack of new content.  I hope you understand!  So if you wonder where I've gone, I'm spending time with my family, enjoying the Christmas season, and maybe doing some crafting on the side. ;)

 I'll be back more regularly when I feel like I've got this new schedule under control for good.

I hope you're doing well.  Thanks for stopping by, and maybe I'll see you again soon. :)
