Formally making the announcement that, once again, my blogging is evolving into a new phase. About a year ago, I stepped down from the hustle and bustle of craft blogging - you can read about that here. After three intense years of putting my all into the Craft, Interrupted blog, I wanted to get away from the stress of keeping to a chock full blog schedule, the pressure of keeping up with other craft blogs...and just focus more casually on things that I enjoyed.
Our lives changed in a significant way when we decided to go for a trial run of homeschooling. I suddenly found myself in a very different realm, which left little time for blogging as much as I wanted to. I also came face to face with a difficult decision regarding the dream I had been focused on - I found it necessary to close my newly rebranded, redesigned, remarketed, re-everything'd etsy shop, very soon after I had totally relaunched it with a grand re-opening. Um...oh sorrrrry, but yeah, party's over. Champagne is gone (literally), and now I'm closing shop. Can't do those custom orders you wanted afterall. Fake out! *awkward* *face palm* *hiding in the closet*
In the past year, we've gone through an intense evolution as a family. Many times I've thought of blogging more about our journey, but then stopped because it wasn't a good fit for this space. I envisioned readers thinking the following - Wasn't this a CRAFT blog?? Where are the kids' parties? Where are the teacher gift printables? Why is she writing about this?? So I mostly posted things on instagram instead, but blogging has been such a part of me, that it felt disconnected.
that nagging feeling...
has been tickling my being. It's time to move forward. It's time to embrace this new chapter. I get more and more questions about homeschooling and organization on my instagram feed. So I'm diving in - to a new blog, where homeschool posts can sit down and put their feet up. A new blog, where I can answer special needs questions, and rant about our recent switch to a gluten-free diet, and share links to all the curriculum resources that I'm loving.
I feel it's where I need to be now.
closing a door, opening a window
an official fond and tearful farewell to craftinterrupted.com.
This domain will remain live till the .com comes up for renewal. Posts will be active as archive status, but I will no longer be posting new material here. All social media accounts that were previously linked to Craft, Interrupted have already been switched to the new blog. Except facebook, because I wasn't able to change the name on that one. The Craft, Interrupted fb page is still up, but I won't be adding new content to that either.
