Well here it goes.
I've stopped and started this blog again and again. Each time with another excuse to keep me away from catching up and posting. Death in the family, loss of a job, too much work, too much stress, death of my beloved pet. It's always something.
So I'm leaving this last post here. Partly because I don't have time to try to figure out how to make a landing page. And partly because I still get lots of page views each day from Pinterest or Buzzfeed traffic. If you're stopping by from an external link, thanks for the visit! Feel free to look around. I have a lot of older posts with some fun tutorials (check the DIY tab on the side for a quick link).
And if you were a follower for some time and a commenter at any time - I thank you for coming around when you did. I had fun with this blog for a few years. I just can't make it successful while trying to have my corporate career. The honest truth - I don't have the energy.
I hope to return one day - probably with some other variation of this blog. Hopefully it will include our new adventure in farming. It's a few years away, but I'm looking forward to giving up corporate life and working with my hands until I'm too old to stand.
Maybe I'll see you then. But for now, I figured I should do a proper sign off. I'm still on Instagram and Facebook (rarely). And for the time being, my shops are still on Etsy, although they're not super active as I haven't had much time for making anything but a paycheck and midsection (I need to get back to the gym!).
Thanks for everything, blog friends! This has been such a great outlet for me. Being an introvert, it's difficult at times to open up and meet new people. I'm lucky to have had my little corner of the blogosphere to share with you!
