Dear friends in blog land
You may or may not remember me. I disapeared and I'm sorry.
It started when my computer caught a virus, I couldn't get online and I couldn't upload a card for my DT spot at Stamping for the weekend I also had no way of letting my fellow teamies know. Eventually my lovely OH managed to make my computer better, but by this point I had missed at least 2 challenges and was too ashamed to get in touch to say sorry.
Then then pressures of my job took over. You may have noticed on my last post that I had left my job for a new, much better one right? No, not right. My new job involves working 45-50 hours a week including alternative Saturdays. Suddenly crafting took a back seat- I had no time or energy to make cards as my time off was spent doing the housework or laundry ready for the next working week.
Then I had the task of making my best friend and my brothers wedding stationary. I loved doing it and at the weddings I enjoyed having guests come over to me to ask if it was really me who made the wonderful invitation they receieved. But it had a downside- crafting had become a chore that I had to do and it came with a deadline. I spent hours alone in my craft room making the same thing over and over again. Its enough to sap anyones creativity, but I'd gladly do it again.
For a while now I've been considering coming back to my blog, I've found a way to manage my home/work relationship and Ive been crafting again since before Christmas. But I wont be looking to get on any Design Teams again as I have enough pressures as it is. I've been lurking around and reading my favourite blogs, theres one in particular that always gives me inspiration- A Scrapjourney - Thanks Debby, you've made me want to come back and enter some challenges again :)
I sincerely hope I didn't cause too many problems and upset when I disapeared and hope this goes someway to expaining my actions.
