Back in the saddle!

Once upon a time, a young and foolish me thought “oh just charge forward! Never stop! Just keep at it!” Now there is something said for being tenacious and honing your craft – but sometimes a pause is a better choice!

If you’ve been following along my blog journey, you know this space used to be used multiple times a week. Based on feedback, my own priorities, and watching what is working I’ve determined that instead of blogging all projects I will save this space for when I have something to type, something that makes the most sense in this format.

Today I just wanted to hop on and encourage this one simple message: Go ahead and just stop!

Sometimes we get to doing things one way for so long we just think “this is how it is” – and a pause can give us a moment to take a look and ask if that’s what works, or if that’s how you want it. From changing scrapbook methods to altering your diet or shifting your daily work routines – it can be really helpful to stop and check yourself. Take a break from the routine.

Lately I’ve been privileged to have a friend allowing me to hop on her horses and I have to tell you – I’ve got muscles screaming and sore that I haven’t used in 20+ years.

And that feels so very good. Being outside more, being active, not chaining myself to the computer daily because I should.

Things are definitely shifting around here- and I’m really excited. If you ever have any craft questions you know where to find me and that I always welcome your emails. Want to see the daily details and crafts? Social media! You can find links at the top of my blog.

Have a wonderful week!

  1. Good for you May, I recently stopped Facebook and wow! I have so much time to do me…I’m reading, coloring with my copics, using all the classes I have bought over the years…(hence coloring with copics)! Haha sometimes you need to stop and see what is working and what isn’t! Btw…the box was beautiful and you hit my shabby chic heart right on the nail!
