Hi folks. I owe you an apology. For starters, I haven't really posted any projects in a while. Bad blogger! And, to make it worse, I promised you a giveaway last week and still haven't come through. Terrible blogger! :(
I'm sorry for the let down. I have no good excuses. Except for "LIFE". Between the kids, hubby, a full-time job, keeping the house in some sort of decent order, managing the budget and all that jazz, I just haven't had any time, energy, desire (or money) to tackle any new projects, let alone blog about them.
I hear most bloggers go through a "funk" every once in a while and, well, I guess it is my turn. Don't get me wrong, I love doing crafts and household projects. It brings me so much satisfaction to know I created something with my own 2 hands. And I love sharing them in blogland. It is fun to think I've inspired or helped someone out there. But I'm feeling that pressure lately of having to do a project just so I can have something to blog about. And, frankly, the last thing I want to do right now with my very limited free time is worry about taking pictures, editing them and sitting in front of the computer writing up posts. I know that probably sounds bad, but it's the truth.
Maybe it is an 'end of summer funk'. Maybe it's because we haven't gone on our "real" summer vacation yet. Maybe it's because my birthday is coming up in a few days and I'm feeling really old. Maybe I'm just 'over' the novelty of having a blog. Maybe I just need a break. A few of my AMAZING bloggy friends have told me these kind of feelings are normal and that most bloggers question their "existence" every so often. And several of those wonderful bloggy friends suggested that I simply take some time off. So, that is what I'm going to do.
I'm going to take a couple weeks off from blogging. Hopefully a beak from the pressure to "deliver" will re-energize me and re-inspire me. We'll see. I hope you won't hold it against me and choose to stick around for the duration. But if not, that is certainly your perogative. I'm sorry if you feel I've let you down. :( Then again, who am I to think my humble little blog is so important to you! LOL.
Anyway, I hope to be back in a few weeks. Hope to see you then.
