So I’d like to start with a big hi, and welcome to everyone that has visited my tiny fledgling blog over the last couple weeks. I really do appreciate you taking time out of your busy lives to read my dimpy little blog. If you’re wondering about my lack of posts lately I’m really sorry about leaving so much time between my last post and this one. I have several posts planned including how to make a blog planner with a crazy quilt cover (really you can use any planner insert you want), and how to hand quilt/show you my most recent quilting project, and since I’ve gotten a lot of questions from friends about how to start/stop in counted cross stitch so that it’s not a giant rat’s nest of nonsense on the back of the project I was going to do a quick pictorial on that too (even though I’m sure someone else has already put one out there on the internet). But then my husband suggested I get a job so that I can get out of the house some, and I figured since I’ve been unemployed for the last 8 months or so that it would be good to have a job and so I went out and got one (JUST KIDDING!! I actually got two!). And now I feel like I never have time to think, let alone craft or blog or do anything I actually want to do. 😦
And honestly it makes it to where I can’t really do the stuff I don’t want to do too. I can’t remember the last time I vacuumed my house, the kitchen is always a mess because I never seem to have time to do the dishes, and I have a mountain of clothes that need to be washed that probably won’t get done until this weekend at the earliest. One upside to being so busy is that I’m hitting 10,000 steps on my fitbit a lot more often. There is this part of me that is always dissatisfied with my weight. I always wish I was thinner like the summer I met my husband. I wore a size 14 that summer and honestly that’s the smallest I’ve ever been as an adult/teen/pre-teen (literally since I was like 9 years old). That was 10 sizes ago. So maybe if I stay busy like this I’ll be able to lose some weight I’ve been wanting to lose. I just wish I could lose weight and quilt and blog all day at the same time too. 😛
When I started this blog I had this idea that I was going to write 3 times a week and have these beautiful involved posts with lots of pictures. But what I forgot to account for is that the people out there who write daily and have these beautiful blog posts with nice glossy pictures with the perfect lighting are getting paid to write. Their blogs have such high traffic that they don’t also hold down two jobs. Their blogs allow them to do things like farm out work to employees. But I am not them, so instead of bemoaning how I have too much to do I think I will cut back on my expectations for myself. And so for right now I’ve decided I should aim for once a week until things settle down some and I have more time to devote to the blog. I’m still going to put out tutorials and how-to’s, and I’m going to aim to get my posts out on Wednesdays that way you guys have something interesting to read on hump day and that way too if you want to pick up the supplies for a tutorial I do you have time to do that before the weekend.
I hope you guys enjoy the blog post coming later this week, with the crazy quilt covered blog planner!
See you then.
