I feel like I always start blogs the same way...its been a while since I last posted. Which tells me a few things-I've not been crafting, and I've not been as productive as I'd have liked.
Its not to say I haven't been doing anything-I made an adorable little apron, and have sewn a few small projects...I even picked up the last of the needed fabric for my quilt top I have been working on for eons.
Lately, life has been a little chaotic, with the end of a long term relationship, the start of new friendships, and community/volunteering projects. It seems for a while, all the energy I had went into not being at home and not thinking about the change in my life. It's settling down and I am getting used to a bigger house, and have started to spend more time and energy into making my home my own again. Its been a transition, but it's exciting. I'm learning to not plan every single aspect of my life, and be OK with what life brings me each moment. It's been nice letting go, but it sure does take energy to not over-think everything in life! :) I just keep thinking that life has a bigger plan for me, then what I had originally planned.
The past few weeks have been spent cooking with friends, watching the chickens, shopping for new veggie starts and picking paint colors for my 3rd bedroom, which will be my new office. It's also been spent trying to decide what my old office will be-guest room/craft room, and deciding what that will look like.
I hope that as I settle into this change that the drive for creativity comes back, and I am sure it will. I also plan to blog more, to clear my head and to capture the creativity that seems to be eluding me lately...keep visiting, dear reader, I'm sure there will be something here soon for you!
