Sometimes I don't like to sew. (and other ramblings)
Yes, it's true. Sometimes I do not enjoy sewing. I have been having a particularly hard time lately with sewing clothes-failed projects and ruined fabric doesn't exactly scream productivity and inspiration. Sometimes my mojo leaves without letting me know and goes on vacation. Rude, right? (hopefully it comes back soon)
But you know what? I'm ok with that. I'm ok with not producing a new clothing tutorial every few days. I hope you are too. Because if there's one thing I'm realizing lately, is that I need to blog for me. I need to be inspired and caught up in a project, and not just make something so that I have something to post about. (guilty as charged!)
Do you know what I mean? So many times we can get caught up in "keeping up with the Joneses" aka other bloggers...and I just get tired of it sometimes. I am not superwoman, though I have tried valiantly. (waste of time, BTW) That picture above is my pile of mending, WIP's, and projects I've given up on, if you don't believe me. ;)
Don't get me wrong, I have a bunch of projects in the queue and I'm having a blast with the nursery redo...I just have blogger's guilt I guess....about not sewing up clothes....which used to be what I did the most of!
I love blogging. I love the community, and all the wonderful people I've met doing this. I'm definitely not quitting by any means...just scaling back a bit. What does that mean? Probably a few less posts a week. I'm not going to set rules for myself, or try to keep up with the schedule I have had for so long. (posting M-F) If I don't have a post written up for the next day, I'm not going to stress or try and throw something together! I'm going to do fewer giveaways and guest posts too. Although they're fun, they're a lot of work, and do take time. Precious time I'd probably rather spend with my girls. Or work on my own blog content.
Anyways. I just needed to get that out there. Thanks for listening, and thanks soo much for reading. I appreciate your support and friendship more than you can know.
