Hi everyone! Don't be confused! :) This past weekend I changed my blog from Pleased as Punch to
I'm really happy with the name change and new(ish) look; I think it's definitely what I needed. I needed a fresh outlook on what I'm doing here! If you've been with me for a while, you remember that I took an indefinite blogging hiatus right after Christmas last year. Well when I came back in May, I knew I wanted to continue blogging, but it wasn't really the same. I kind of had to find my "groove" all over again.
One of the things I've learned is that I don't want to get caught up in all the things that aren't really "me" again. I found myself doing projects for the sake of some link party...and that just totally sapped all my creativity and enjoyment out of crafting! I eventually found myself totally "on empty" in the inspiration department. What a bummer. I remember when I couldn't find time to do all the things I was inspired to do. I am slowly getting back to having that good flow of creativity, and I think the key is knowing what I truly LOVE to do & what feeds my creative spirit. (I know that sounds kind of funny, coming from me...I'm not much of a "feed my creative spirit, kum-ba-ya" type of person...but that's the best way to put it I think! Don't make fun!) :)
So what is that, you ask? I really pondered this, but it did not take long. Sewing, hand embroidering, knitting & crocheting. This is what I find most relaxing and enjoyable. Picking up some knitting is sort of like biting into some really good dark chocolate for me. It just feels so good. Putting a needle & thread through some fabric and seeing those lines form...I just love it. It seems that anything involving stitching is what I tend to gravitate toward....hence my new blog name. :)
If you've been subscribing via email to my posts, I think you may want to make sure you update your subscription (on the right) by re-subscribing to this feed...and if you've been reading this in a reader, you may want to change it over to this new blog address...clearly I know & understand very little about "feeds"...ugh, all this tech stuff. Bottom line: if you're reading this, and you're like, "Hey! Why wasn't this in my reader/email?" then you should re-subscribe by using the buttons or email form on the right. Sorry to not streamline it for you. It was all I could do to get the buttons THERE. ;)
So...that's that! Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad to have you here!
