Samster & I are finally flying home tomorrow. Of course I love my family & love being in Florida but man, 2 weeks away from home is tough no matter how much you love the vacation. P is already home & I insisted he have a warm fire going to welcome us. I can’t wait!
I have to apologize to you that the posts have been light over the holiday, (to say the least) I kind of assumed most of you were off for family time too & hoped you wouldn’t mind too much. I actually did pack a bunch of projects do while I was here so I could keep up the blog but it just turned out to be too hard & too little time.
I’m really REALLY excited to get home though & get back on track. Nothing like taking some time off to get the juices going. Did you know when I go to bed at night I think of craft projects to relax? I know, it’s kind of ridiculous & I’ll surely be mocked for sharing that little tidbit but it’s completely true. I love this stuff! I guess that’s why the blog doesn’t seem like work, it’s more of a good excuse to spend some time creating. “But honey, I can’t help clean the kitchen, I have to sew, my readers depend on it!” (he hehe)
Speaking of, can you believe we’ve made it to over 400 followers?! I’m so excited! My initial goal was 150, then 300 & now I’m going big. My new year’s resolution is to keep coming up with fun projects & helpful posts to break 1,000 followers. (can you imagine?!!)I think I’ll crap my pants when/if that happens. Sorry to be vulgar but seriously, we’ll be have to find a way to freezer paper stencil Depends.
I don’t know why ‘followers’ matter to me. (hate that name by the way, would much prefer if it said “readers”) My husband keeps telling me that page views & unique visitors are a true gauge of who’s reading your blog but for some reason I’m hung up on the follower’s number. Does anyone else feel this way or should I just add it to my list of issues? I really think breaking 1,000 will mean making it to the big blog leagues. Please tell me someone else has this silly hangup!
Well, I should probably wrap this up. Samster is sleeping in my parent’s room so I can get the night off. I just took an Ambien to ensure a good’s night rest & vowed to never blog on Ambien. This would become an entirely different kind of blog if I did. The kind that comes back to haunt you when you try to run for office 10 years later.
So nighty night, miss you all & can’t wait to get back in the swing of things. (:
Happy New Year!
