Unplanned hiatus

Yes, this blog still exists! And I plan on writing here more often and finishing my shop this spring. I've had the busiest few months here in Haasomeland and have taken a bit of an internet break. Not that I haven't continued to read blogs, but I've greatly cut down on them and have used the time to focus on other areas of my life and to help me reconsider the kind of crafty person I want to be.

And that person is: more organized and focused; more disciplined; more selective and refined; and more vocal and expressive. Haasome's gonna be bigger and badder.

First, that requires moving into a new apartment later this month. Rebudgeting. Rethinking how and with whom I spend my time. Then I get a nice kick start by participating in another Hearts & Crafts Affair in Greenpoint in May. Nothing gets me going like a deadline and with my refound sensibility, I think I'll come out of April with a lot of great new stuff.

I've hesitated so much coming back here to write, fearing I'd look like an unproductive slacker who keeps promising she'll do things. Then I remembered that I wanted this blog to be about just that: misadventures and imperfection and addressing the more-common-than-normally-talked-about time when the creative well dries out or you lose the bucket or you just don't have the time because you don't have the luxury of making crafting anything other than a glorified hobby. All while still celebrating awesome craftyness and the part of me that will never ever go away.

Plus I keep thinking about a couple crafty tattoos but DAMN my fear of needles...

Stay tuned; I promise I'll be back!

This post makes me very happy. I love hearing about friends making a more defined effort to be productive and goal driven. It's great how it reads like a statement of sorts. Lots of luck to you! And I better be one of those you start hanging out with more often ;)
