Woah, that's the longest break from my blog I have ever taken. I am finding Instagram so much easier. To write a decent blog post takes time, have to take photos with my camera which requires me to edit and upload onto the computer. I am just too dang lazy. Also I have been really thinking about my blog, what I want it to be, do I want it to go anywhere, and if so, do I need to simplify my name, or just use my name instead of something else? I had dreams of venturing into design, hence the name, but I can't see myself actually enjoying the business aspect of it, so that is not a reality anymore. Maybe I should just be hodge:podge, as that is what my blog is full of, a mix of gobbly goo. Or should I just be my name, like other bloggers? Or is that just so yesterday already?
What do you see my blog as? I do enjoy showing everyone that renting shouldn't limit you design-wise. I loved interviewing fabulous Canadians in my So Canadian, eh? series, but that was soooo time consuming. Not sure what my niche is. Would love your two bits.
Even though I left my blog stagnant, I have been busy with a few projects. I am almost finished custom roman blinds for our master bedroom! Hoping to head to Ikea to get my favourite drapes to add an extra layer to the windows!
I have been adding a few blue and white bowls to my collection.
Can't help myself.
Can't help myself.
I have been trying to decorate slowly, not make rash decisions. I really want our home to feel like a home and not a showcase for a photo op. I want it to reflect who we are, and not fill it with trendy things. I don't want it to look like thousands of other bloggers homes, which frankly I find so boring and lacking any design aesthetic. So with that in mind, I will practice slow blogging as well. Why fill this blog with "filler" posts? I want to be filled with authenticity and inspiration.
And my 5 year blogiversary came and went in October.
I feel I have come a long way with in those 5 years. Life has changed, my priorities have changed but I still enjoy blogging even if it is every once in a while. I have had many exciting opportunities land on my lap, met fabulous people (many who I can call a good friend now) and have felt the whole world open up! Being a mom to one still at home, moving this past summer and teaching Kindergarten/grade one has kept me busy. So glad that I have many friends that have stuck by, thank you. Hugs and kisses to you all!
