Thought Bubbles

Thought Bubbles
You may have noticed I've been on a bit of a blog break. Here's why: I've been writing xhtml and css! Is that Greek to you? If it is, then let me explain: it's coding for websites, and it takes time. It takes some trial and error, some thought, and lots of tweaking. And there isn't much about it for me to photograph!

I mentioned quite some time ago that I was thinking through what I wanted this blog to be, who I was as a crafty person, and so on. Well, I've let all that marinate for way longer than I expected, and I think I have some sense of direction now. I'm not talking about huge changes from what you already see here, just a little freshening up, a little more intentionality and focus on my part. One step in this direction involves moving to a more "permanent" blog home (and a name change).

I've been working on pulling that together as of late, hence the coding. (I like to hand code my sites from scratch, crazy lady that I am.) Planning for a new website has been getting pushed aside for more entertaining projects, but a disadvantage of having small children who collectively don't sleep well at night is that there isn't much room for doing needlework or other such things. The hidden benefit has been that, when my son wakes up for the 76th time before 10 p.m. and I decide to wave the white flag and just go to bed with him, I can play around on my laptop while I cuddle him back to sleep. That has been happening a lot lately, which means that all the fussing with domain names and css and web design is finally finished!

So, what does that mean for you?

Well, this will be my last post at this address. I'll keep this site live to avoid broken links and to redirect anyone who may find me via old posts, but for anything new, you'll have to follow me to my new home. (All my current archives will be transferred there as well.) That means if you want to see my second memory pouch or more on the stamps I carved to make the image above, you'll have to click on the link: june at noon.

I've enjoyed being a part of the online craft community so far, interacting with all of you, and I look forward to continuing the journey together at my new site. Hope to see you there!

Love the new name! May your new home on the Web bring you all the good stuff...and may your little guy get the hang of the 'sleep' thing, so you can have your evenings back!
