I found a gorgeous craft area on Pinterest—I find a lot of gorgeous craft areas and other stuff on Pinterest. But this little one got me. I had to remember to close my mouth after my jaw dropped. It is so simple--pretty and bright and organized!
I wanted to know more so I sought out the original source (Etsy: The Storque) and found a wonderful article. This time, my heart almost stopped because I recognized myself so clearly in the author’s words. The article is short and worth the read.
I have felt guilty for a lot of things lately…not getting things done, having too many things to do, wanting to do everything myself, overwhelmed and crashing, and on and on. This article is not just for DIY-ing, it is a good philosophy for my life.
I know I have posted very little lately. I have been caught between wanting to do more and watching my audience grow and then wondering why it all matters. There are a ton of wonderful blogs, sites, and pin boards out there. My little blog is not the prettiest, craftiest, expert-est, or any other “est” around. But, it is my place to share. I guess I need to provide a disclaimer, though. I can’t let my blog or craft projects take over my whole life. I need time to live my real life and enjoy it while I am at it.
I will still post projects and tutorials from time to time, but I can’t promise when or with what frequency. I hope you will still follow along—who doesn’t like an audience? But, at least you know what’s going on. Thank you so much for the kind emails wondering what happened to me. I’m here, I’m fine, and I am really living my life--thanks!
Please tell me I am not the only who feels this way. And, don’t forget to read that article. It is a good reality check for anyone who likes to craft!
