Here We Go Again…

**sigh** I’ve gone back and forth a million times on whether or not to start another blog. For those of you who may not know, I had a blog, Learning The Cricut, for several years. It was crazy popular but oh-so-much work. I had well over 5,000 fans on Facebook and my own ebook that allowed me to stay home with my stepdaughter. Long story short, I shut it down (sometimes regretfully, sometimes not). I basically fell off the face of the blog and social media earth. So…why am I back?

Learning The Cricut blog

Well, I have been a caregiver for my mother-in-law who had brain surgery in 2010 and has been left with problems with her short term memory. Our world has been rocked and we are just getting back to normal. With the normal comes me being a stay at home mom, and keeper of all things MIL related. Sometimes it’s exhausting. I got really burnt out on all of the Cricut stuff, and the pressure to “produce”. And now, well, I’ve taken up sewing, and I’m planning on opening an Etsy store. Blogging my creations just seams to go hand in hand.

So, I invite you to join me on my journey of all things creative. So nice to see you again!
