Two Thousand & Ten Cheers for Reinvention!
I did not follow on my promise to come back. (I am not sure that promise was ever explicit, but I at least led you on.) I am a horrid blogist. I apologize.
As summer rolled around blogging had become a chore. My focus had wandered from making stuff to hanging out. What I found was that I had started making stuff just so I could blog, which, in turn made the whole process completely un-fun.
Once the weather turned chilly, I returned to the world of creating. I have been making stuff – but not jewelry or art as much as dinner, toddler knitwear and kid-friendly crafts. I have been learning the art of letterpress and home-sewing. Although I continued to pursue creative endeavors, I stopped documenting them, and creating became fun again.
That said, I have realized I do miss blogging. There is something to be said for throwing my thoughts, accomplishments and failures into the e-abyss.
With that, in this new year I will be reinventing LLBH&C. LLBH&C has a new look and the content will shift focus back to the simple act of making stuff. I plan to share how-tos, patterns, recipes, and cool creative stuff on the interwebs. Of course I will also continue to share my thoughts on, as well as experiences with, success and failures in my creative endeavors.
Please keep me in your feed reader. I promise dear readers to return to blogging – besides, it is too cold outside to do much else!
