It’s been more than a year since I changed the banner on this blog. The featured baby on the banner no longer remotely resembles my toddler.
It’s time to update the ol’ blog so I don’t outgrow it. I read this great post from Pioneer Woman a few months back about blogging, and the best piece of advice on her list is to blog about anything and everything that inspires you.
Right now, I am trying to figure out what inspires me.
In the last year, my life has changed a lot. Just like any first-time parent, I don’t think I was prepared for how little time I would have for myself after having a child. I assumed I could do it all: work, mother, cook, craft, sew, read, exercise, watch sports . . . you get the idea. Truth be told, I have slivers of time to engage in hobbies and lately that time has been monopolized by Downton Abbey.
I’m trying to find a place for my creative self to thrive in the midst of my new life. I can’t sit down and devote the energy I once did to sewing projects, but I have to find an outlet to express myself. I’ve picked up my sweater with vigor again; I hope to finish it in the next few weeks. Posts to come!
