Not Dead

11:26 AM

Hello. I'm not dead, just been busy and needed a break from blogs.
Do you ever just take a break from reading blogs, blogging yourself, checking pinterest, etc?

I've actually made a few things, a blouse, a dress for Ellie, a storage shelf for fabric, but I've yet to photograph and blog them.
Summer is busy, I have all the outdoor chores now, and  blogging just hasn't been something I've wanted to do, so I'm alive, taking a break and will have more projects soon.

I think this is why I've never tried to make money from the blogging aspect. 
I like having the flexibility to just go off line for a while when myself or my family needs it.

Also, I'm the Girls Camp Director--in charge of planning a camp for the teenage girls in our church congregation--and that is stealing most of my free time at the moment.  
I hope it ends up being good.  
It's boot-camp with war/ army/ camo themed so no frills or pedicures planned...although we're "camping" at a nice cabin and will have electricity, toilets, showers, and an oven.

So hope your summer is going well too and I imagine blogging in general takes a back seat for most of us this time of year!

  1. I think it's is completely okay to shut off from technology. I actually encourage it! I try to shut off at least once a week, if not every other week. I can't get inspired if I'm always looking at what other people are doing.

  2. I totally understand. I took a break like that and it was really helpful! Good luck with Girls' Camp!

  3. Ditto needing a break and good luck with girls camp!

  4. I'm always amazed at how much you get done. I'm glad that you are taking a break because I starting to suspect you of doping ;) Enjoy your respite.

  5. I'm not a freak that reads tonnes of blogs but I like yours cos it inspires me to sew more often and more challenging projects. Its freezing here in south africa. Hav an awesome summer camp!

  7. Girls Camp with no pedicures is going to be WAYYY cooler than the princess camps. Also, the girls will probably be happier and less catty. Good luck with that. And enjoy the break. I feel like I've been taking one since like, um, September. HA!

  8. agreed!! :) I never tried to make money either. Life is not lived online. It is the moments with our kids that no one sees that is really where life is lived :) completely agree w/ you- but I do love your blog too:)

  9. I've been in the process of considering a blog, comments like this let me think about how much time is spent online. I love to craft but do I want it to be "a job"? Food for thought, enjoy your summer :)


Thank you for stopping by, we love to hear from you!
