Warning….navel gazing post…
Hello! Seems my posting here is a bit shabby at the moment. But I’m finally at the point with the blog that I don’t mind. I used to feel the pressure (self imposed) to post frequently, to be witty, creative, original, posting regularly about my fabulously crafty life! Not that it wasn’t true, I do have a pretty great crafty life. Saying all that, now that the blog and I have been together over 2 years we’re starting to get comfortable with each other. You know that feeling with friends, that no matter what you won’t be judged, they accept you for all your quirks and you don’t have to explain yourself to them. I’m extremely fortunate in having friends (flesh friends and blog friends) like this. I don’t need to mention names you know who you are!
I’m at the point with the blog where I feel comfortable with just putting out here what I want and be damned with people’s opinion of me. It’s interesting, sort of like a peeling back layers. It’s like making friends, you meet them and there’s the honeymoon phase, then you slowly get to really know each other, you might go through some bumpy spots and then over time you can’t imagine them not being in your life. There’s no bullshit, just upfront great stuff. So that’s how the blog is for me now. I still don’t show all my warts, of course you’re going to see most of my flattering parts here 🙂 and a grrls gotta keep some secrets!
I have a bucketload of crafty projects on the go at the moment, a zillion ideas in my head. Living singularly makes my time allocation interesting. My time is spent juggling (ignoring!) housekeeping, keeping in touch with friends, crafting, blogging and dating. This is no whoa is me post. Just that I’ve noticed being single yet again that my time is more precious. I can’t rely on anyone but me to tidy, feed the cat, feed myself etc. Sometimes I wish for a partner to share stuff with and miss intimacy, but the flipside, I also enjoy being able to completely suit myself and not consider anyone else. I don’t think either situation is better or worse, both have their merits!
So sorry, no craft to show you here today. Just some shoes I bought recently. Aren’t they pretty. They go well with my tan 😉 I do have craft in progress but haven’t had the time to photograph it. The photo above was taken as I walked out of the door this morning rushing to work.
Have any of you seen Children of Men? Wowzers, knocked my socks off. Wasn’t expecting it to be so great. Thoroughly enjoyable. Kate’s more eloquent than I am and read the comments.
A new friend introduced me to a remix of Queen of Japan singing the Kiss classic "I was made for loving you"…takes on a whole other meaning and I love it!
I ♥ my new bracelet by Liana Kabel! Check out her gorgeous tape measure pins and other yummy recycled plastic goodies.
Lastly, Amy Butler responds to recent copyright questions about her designs that have popped up in blogland. Excellent response.
Hmm I think I must have been channelling the Hormonal Menstral Goddess with this post! LOL.
