obviously i haven't been using this space much lately. i've also managed to use up all my photo storage. i've been thinking a lot about what i want to do. do i want to continue this? i love looking back at my blog posts and i am happy i wrote them and have those memories. i haven't been doing much work in my shop. when i started on etsy it was such a different place. there were only a few other artists who did what i did. now i go, and i am overwhelmed by the number of artists who do similar (and amazingly beautiful) work. i wonder if there is a point to continue? i love making what i do, but perhaps it is time to take a step back. i was at a craft show the other day and someone recognized me from my blog. she had been following since before i was even little love blue. she had such nice things to say. it made me feel good that my work has been meaningful to others. the world of etsy and blogging has become something so different though. i often sit down to work or write something here and wonder if it is pointless? that is hard to think about. i have been doing this for about 5 years now. my middle daughter was a baby, my son a toddler. it was such a lifeline to have a creative outlet. my life is so full these days in a different way though. i feel like i need to prioritize and figure out what is most important. maybe that will mean continuing, maybe it means something else. i am so grateful to every one of you. if you have ever taken the time to read my words, i am humbled. for your support and love, you have my eternal gratitude. i wish you all a beautiful holiday, and hopefully we will meet again soon.
