It’s been a long while since I was active on this blog. I some regrets about that. But I’m also thankful for the time that I’ve had away, because it’s been a chance for my husband and I to build a good foundation for the rest of our life. We are coming up on our 1 year anniversary, which will be January 7. So many things have happened in the past year, including my completion of graduate school, buying a house, adopting a cat, struggling with an eating disorder, gaining a lot of weight and working to get that back under control, learning what it really means to be a Godly wife (still have a lot to learn!), and re-discovering what makes me ‘tick’. Among those are cooking and crafts!
I haven’t been posting, but I HAVE been cooking! The trouble I ran into was time. I am now working, have a home to maintain, a husband to dote on, and long list of [fun] engagements throughout the week with my church and community.
I used to ‘stick my nose’ up at pre-made/packaged gluten free food, but over the last year I’ve been doing a lot with it. I guess I have had a change of heart. So you may see my recipes include not-from-scratch products. Also, on the note of ‘recipes’, I’ve decided that I want to actively try other bloggers recipes. Give them a test and finally get around to trying out the creativity of those around me.
So some of my posts will simply be ‘tests’ of what others have posted. If you have any recipes you’d like me to try, feel free to send them my way!
For a few years while I was in undergrad and graduate school, most craft habits fell by the wayside. Knitting and crocheting were the only ones that I kept up faithfully, but that was because they were easy to carry around and store. Things like paper crafts, home decor, and sewing were put on a back-burner because I didn’t have room in my dorm or apartment for all my ‘gear’. Well, did I mention we bought a house? The Hubs is pretty amazing and agreed to let me use one of the extra bedrooms as my craft room. A big desk, ironing table, shelves upon shelves, and wood floor make it a great setting for utilizing my creative energy.
So I hope to use this blog to talk about my success, failure, and sheer fun I have in crafting.
To wrap up, I know I haven’t been around for a while, but I can only hope to jump back into this wonder world of blogging and re-join many friends. All the best,
