To answer any questions anyone might possibly have as to why I've not updated my blog in well over a week, it's because...
I was all out of crafting mojo. I was frustrated. I was, for lack of a better word, TIRED. I know, I know, I should have put something up to keep the blog fresh, even if it was only pictures of my darling Boxer puppy, but I didn't even want to look at my blog. Pitiful, right? But that's all behind me now, and...
|My favorite pink socks.|
That's right, change is afoot. And that's a good thing. I felt I was in a rut. I had no fresh ideas. I had focused too much on others' needs and not enough on my own, and my crafting had suffered greatly. I didn't even want to be in my sanctuary otherwise known as my craft room or look at any of my supplies. And that was truly upsetting.
So change is afoot, and after taking several days' break I've decided to forge new paths and revisit some old ones. I picked up my knitting that I'd neglected for the past two years since making my first card and made a luscious wool/angora neck warmer (gaiter) for this suddenly chilly season. I'm pulling out the paints and crayons that have been languishing for months. I've opened up my art journal and am trying my hand at new techniques. And I'm putting the paper/card projects aside for the time being because there is more to my crafting than cards alone.
Yes, change is afoot. And I hope you'll continue to keep me company as I forge new paths and get comfortable with some old ones.
As always, happy crafting.
