This is a shout out to my blog following friends!
I realize more and more that my blog doesn't have a true "fit". If you read my heading, it says that this blog incorporates my love...for TOO many things!
I know that I have loss followers who are wondering, what the heck are all the craft posts?
I know that I have craft/sewing follower who are wondering, what the heck is with all the grief/loss posts?
The answer is this.
I would love to compartmentalize all of my posts. I would love to have separate blogs.
But the reality of it is this. I love to sew. I love to craft. I love my kids. And I have lost a child. All of these things make me who I am am. And if you are having trouble understanding this maybe this post would best describe what I am trying to say.
Therefore, in a way, this post is to let you all know that I understand that my blog is a mess. Honestly, my life is messy. I cannot compartmentalize all my parts. They are all with me at all times. I sit at my sewing machine and see this.
In short, I have thought of changing my blog, but I can't bear to. I would then have to separate these things in my life. In plain speak, I DON'T WANT TO.
So thank you for following me. Please be patient with me. I honestly don't know how else to do it.
If you have suggestions, I will gladly listen. I need all the help I can get!
I actually love the mess, because I feel like it is so true for most of us. Especially having a little one in Heaven, I still go about my daily life and try to return to the activities i love, but my heart still struggles and Ryan is often on my mind. Also, absolutely love your sign.ReplyDelete
Don't change a thing!ReplyDelete
Don't be so hard on yourself. Your blog is lovely.ReplyDelete
oh, and I love the sign...did you make that?!?!
You all are so sweet! I did not make the sign. A friend of mine commissioned a school mom that makes wooden items to make it just for me.ReplyDelete
Do you just LOVE it?! I do. I have been meaning to take a better picture of it!
Heidi, I love the sign! I had the same problem. I write about grief/loss, faith, homemaking, art... it's a mess, and I cannot bring myself to separate it out.ReplyDelete
I'm on Wordpress and was able to separate things out into different categories so the mess seemed a little less chaotic (though your blog never strikes me as chaotic). People can actually subscribe to the separate RSS feeds of each category. Wonder if blogspot does the same thing?
