Dear blog, I have neglected you, I'm sorry...Please forgive me.

It's no secret that creative projects are time consuming. Over the past few years, I have been working on developing many creative endeavours and have honestly struggled to find a balance between life, work, trying to find my creative forte, learning new creative skills, selling work at craft stalls and online as well as making online content and tutorials. I've often felt like maybe I should hone in on one area and give up chasing my ideas, but I just don't want to do that. I enjoy it all too much.

So, instead of feeling swamped by failing ideas, I'm rejigging a few things and giving myself a big kick up the backside. I've spent a lot of time recently painting, which has reignited a passion for it. It has been like finding a lost love after many years, although less romantic and more frustrating (I'm sure I used to be better at this?!) All through my childhood, teenage years and even during my degree, painting was what I lived for. I completely lost my confidence with it after I graduated and took to learning crafts and other creative outlets. This year so far has made me realise the importance of pursuing what you love (however cliché it may be) and so that's what I'm going to do.

Going forward, I'm working on some re-branding, stripping it back to basics and making work that I love and am excited about. I'm still embroidering and sewing, I'm hugely passionate about crafting so I will never walk away from that. My focus is going to be using this blog (with its shiny new layout) and Youtube channel to keep teaching crafting techniques as well as talking about all things creative and building a community of crafty folk.

In my Etsy shop, expect to see lots of new work incorporating fabrics as well as painting. I'm working on a few wedding projects that I'm really excited about and hope to roll out after this summer.

So, to conclude my ramble: I'm going to be blogging more about all things creative and I have SO many DIY tutorials to share! My shop and other social platforms are getting a re-vamp and I'm generally really excited about what's to come.

Onwards and upwards,

Katie x
