Oh Where, Oh Where, Did The Blogger Go?

I thought that I had planned and prepared myself so well before I started blogging so I wouldn't be one of those bloggers that showed up and then quickly disappeared. I had a long list of post ideas ready to go and I was excited!

What I didn't realize is that I am very wordy and I have to edit, reedit and revise multiple times to keep from writing an essay or even a thesis. Apparently in school, I just didn't like the topics enough because I could never find enough to write back then:) To my surprise, blogging began taking up a huge chunk of my time.

In March, I had so many family obligations. On top of all the regular things families do, I was trying to do our personal taxes and prepare my parent's tax info for the accountant. We had so much going on that I was going back to being a stressed out witch.  I had left my job the summer before so I wouldn't be that woman and I couldn't go back to being her. For the sake of my family, I left my blog cold turkey.

It was very hard. I missed the outlet of blogging.  I had become hooked. I continued to be on other social media outlets (probably too often) but I really wanted to blog.  I kept saying next month I'll be caught up and I can start again:) It just didn't happen.

The last time I posted was 7 months ago today. Time is still an issue for me. (I agreed to long term sub for a private school that needed a sub at the last minute.) I may not be able to blog even weekly but I'm determined to get posting again.

Do you have any topics you'd like to hear about from a veteran scrapper/papercrafter? Reply here and I'll work those in to my still long list of topics. 

I'm Back!

Don't forget to check out my social media sites. I'm on them a lot so I'd love to hear from you or have you follow/like me. (I'm a social media newbie so those words sound so strange as I type them.)
