Dear Friends and Readers,
As you know I've been thinking about and trying (although not very hard) to stop writing this blog for a while now.
Since we moved house last February I haven't managed to get into the swing of crafting and blogging with the gay abandon that I used to. At first I just went with the flow and then I felt bad that I wasn't offering you anything (after all this is supposed to be a craft blog) and then I decided to stop blogging altogether but couldn't drag myself away. Now I think it's just come to a natural end.
When I first started blogging I wanted to share the things I made, I wanted to inspire and create community. All this I did and judging from the comments I used to receive I infected many with my enthusiasm. But these days that enthusiasm has waned and I'm not feeling very inspirational and thinking about what to post has become a chore.
What I've noticed with my infrequent postings this year is that I'm more relaxed. When you have a blog you're always thinking about what to write next and since my last post a month ago I haven't thought about it once. It's been lovely and that's what I mean about coming to a natural end. These days I spend more time with the children, I'm reading more, baking, seeing friends and never a thought about which of those to write about. Therefore my natural conclusion is that I should stop blogging altogether.
So it really is goodbye this time. I want to thank you for reading, for your lovely comments and support. It's been a wonderful three years - I've made some lovely friends, had two great American trips (our best holidays ever) and I've learned masses about myself in the process of crafting and blogging and I thank you for that.
with love from
