One of My Favorite Things (& Thoughts on the Blog)

My kitchen windowsill. I love it. The things that sit on it are always changing, though there are always several plants there since this seems to be the only place in the house where plants do well (in other words, grow rather than drop all their leaves and die).
I have spent a lot of time over the last while thinking about this blog of mine – what I like, what I want to change – and have come to think that perhaps “real life” is lacking from my posts. Most of my posts have been of the "show and tell" type - I make something and I want to share it with you - and that is great, I mean that is why I started this blog in the first place. But that being said, I don't want there to be a misconception in this space that I spend my days sipping coffee and crafting (I certainly wish that were true, but believe me it is not). The truth of the matter is that I spend a great deal of time doing "real life" stuff, honestly a lot more time than I spend crafting, and I want my blog to reflect that. So, moving forward into the new year, I am going to write some more "life" posts to capture and share what is happening around me everyday, what often inspires my crafting. There will still be crafty "show and tell" - I certainly wouldn't dream of stopping that - but there will be a healthy dose of everyday stuff thrown in too. Sound okay? I'm excited to see where this goes, and hope you enjoy a peek into my daily life.

Thank you for visiting and reading. Have a wonderful weekend.
