it seems i've fallen off the virtual cliff of the internet world. back in March i felt God nudging me and i had to ask myself WHY i wasn't pursuing my lifelong dream. i had to take a break from regular blogging, tweeting, and whatnot to research, pray, listen, ask... pursue. at this time i feel i can blog regularly again while pursuing my big (pipe) dream. it is hard to have an identity and then add to that identity without feeling like you've kicked out your readers and friends. i will always love photography, blogging, paper, handmade, and all the great friends i have made along the way.
we are not one dimensional, however, this seems hard to communicate in the blogging world in some instances; like handmade paperie and blogging and mom go together fine. what about handmade paperie, foodie, photographer, decorator, blogger? not so sure. or what about handmade paperie, blogger, web designer, mom, movie-star? hmmmm. well, i guess it doesn't sound so bad to say it out loud, takes some getting used to. (the latter is me) this is big news.
besides my family and God, my main focus now is web design, blogging, and acting. i hope you take this news with heart and understanding that we are all passionate people with big dreams and aspirations. the plan is to create income with my love of web design to help fund my dream. as acting takes off (fingers crossed) i plan to design less and act more. you are welcome to pray that God gives me the wisdom to thoughtfully choose each step along my path. i would love for you to continue to join me on this big exciting journey as i share the ins and outs, ups and downs, and events that take place along the way!
i cannot tell you how much fun i had with my crafty friends this weekend.
they are what i love wednesday...
(there's a lake behind us somewhere...)
i drove 6 hours one way to see all of them and to scrapbook, yes, scrapbook!
it was 4 days of coffee induced, scrappy, laughter filled, tear filled, fun.
there is also a little story of bats and a horsefly chasing me in which i screamed my head off and did other strange and silly things during an envening walk.
