So I’ve finally taken the plunge! Decided to really focus on making a blog that represents me, and my life, and my creative outlets! I won’t lie, this is not the first blog I have started… but it is the first one I am really excited about. Because I want to write about and share the things that really inspire me. I also want to let this little space on the internet be somewhere that in between the office, the school run, the supermarket and spending time on my crafts, I can just be me!
I have always loved to write, and since finishing university and life generally getting in the way, I just haven’t done anywhere near enough of it. I’ve missed it – and although I’m not amazing at it, I enjoy writing for fun, so I am really excited to do this. Mix that in with my love of crochet, yarn, floss, fabrics, baking, and of course my lovely little family and I’m sure I will have plenty to write about.
I’ve been thinking about blogging for a few weeks. Office life at the moment is stressful, hard work and all-consuming. On the days I am in the office, I literally do not get a moment to step back, to think, to focus on what I am actually doing. I don’t think it will be like that forever, but right now I can’t see it changing any time soon. I’ve been spending my days off continuing to work, trying to fit everything in, trying not to let people I work with down. But it’s not sustainable, and isn’t fair on me or my family. So I decided a few weeks ago I needed somewhere else to focus my energy, something to really stop my mind thinking about the office when G is at school and I’m home alone for a few hours. What better way to do that, than by following my love of writing once more? So Dotty Craft is just that. Let’s see where it takes us shall we?
