I haven't blogged since August of last year. That's a long time and I have no excuse really other than I just wasn't feeling it. There were times I began the rather enjoyable process of crafting posts in my head, but then I would lose them. The long winded paragraphs I imagined writing filled with interesting tidbits and bright photos got bumped by the far less taxing Instagram. So much for good intentions and hours wasted on words I would never write. To be honest, that's why I'm here, because I missed a place where I could just write. I've had a blog since 2007. The original iteration (not counting that tragic Live journal I had) still lives here if you fancy a gander. I was never terribly prolific there either, but I'm hoping to change that.
So what are my intentions? Will this be a crafty blog devoted to memorykeeping and yarn? Will it be a lifestyle blog where I wax poetic on my favorite meals, the lovely cushions I just found and my favorite shade of Grey? Or will it be wordy...oh you know, the type of blog with lots and lots of words? I felt like I had an answer to all of these questions when I began...but now I'm not so sure. Look, I'm not trying to entertain anyone or drive traffic or grow my brand. Those are worthy goals, but not to me and not right now. This is a place for stories and that's all I can promise. I will write many a crafty post, because it's what I love and do. I will also include talk of food, cushions and the color of Grey...because I like those things...a lot. I will also use 5 words when 2 will do because it's how I write and I'm too old to change that. So if you're into it...welcome. I will endeavor to please you and myself by being occasionally funny and or insightful.
