My Mess of a Blog!

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!


  1. 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.

  2. Don't be so hard on yourself. Your blog is lovely.
    oh, and I love the sign...did you make that?!?!

  3. 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.

    Do you just LOVE it?! I do. I have been meaning to take a better picture of it!

  4. 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.

    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?


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
