So… it’s been all quiet on the blogging front as I decided to simply enjoy my holidays this year as opposed to the usual making things and taking photos, editing said photos and writing blog posts. I put up old decorations, I hung the same wreath I’ve had the past three Christmases, and *gasp* I didn’t even take everything down until this past weekend. The Flow Blue vintage dresser was the last piece of furniture in my garage for me to work on, so I have had a break from projects and you know what? It’s been kinda nice not having the nagging feeling of “I’ve gotta get this finished or work on that”.
While looking through photos last week, I realized that over the past few years, I’ve filled up a lot of photo albums with tutorials and projects and progress updates and crafts and while it’s all been fun, it’s a lot of time and work. While I still enjoy all of the creating and decorating, I’d much rather share snippets on Instagram and go about my merry day than create an entire blog post about it, link up to linky parties, etc.
My lack of blogging mojo isn’t helped by the fact that I’m also embarking on a new adventure this year… going back to school for the first time in 16 years.
Yes. In a little over two weeks, I will officially be a graduate student. Suffice it to say that I likely will be replacing my crafty time with studying and homework. I’m scared sh*tless to add student to my profile of 37-year old full-time working mom of two very busy chicks but it’s now or never, and I finally got the cojones to just do it already.
Lest you think there will be no projects going on at the home.made. casa, I can assure you that while my plate will be full, my to-do list won’t be going away. I still have trim to paint, cabinets to paint, curtains to hang, closets to organize, etc. DIYers gonna DIY. I can’t promise a lot of updates other than instagram, so follow along there if you’re interested.
So there you go. It’s gonna be a wild year. I don’t know if I’m more excited or frightened, but either way, here we go.
Bring it, 2015.
