I have been thinking about writing this post for a few months, since I returned home after our failed adoption placement to be exact. Then a few days ago I got some devastating news that made me start thinking harder.
But the last straw was yesterday afternoon when I was struggling to get our internet back up and running (I’m actually writing this from the library because the connection is still down). My little Abi came up behind me and in a very quiet voice said, “Mommy, please don’t do anymore work today. I really want to cuddle with you.” So I dropped everything and cuddled my sweet girl.
It made me realize that although I feel I keep a pretty good work/life balance, Abi may see it differently. She will only be 4, then 5, then 6 once. And I may only be able to experience those ages with this one child, I may not get the chance to raise more.
As much as I have enjoyed running this blog and being inspired by all of you for the last 3 and a half years, there is one thing for sure.
If you were to ask the 5 year old me, the 15 year old me, or even the present day me what I wanted to be when I grow up my answer wouldn’t be blogger.
It would be mom.
But I can’t just let So You Think You’re Crafty die. It is what helped me out of my depression after my first miscarriage. It has been what I spent my quiet hours alone doing. It’s helped finance my fabric addiction and help out with bills when money was a little tight. And I think it’s a great, fun way to both be inspired and share inspiration.
So I’ve decided to sell the blog.
Don’t worry, everything will continue on as normal until I find someone that I think will take care of the contest, and probably even improve on it (because there sure is room for improvement ).
If you would like to send me an offer or get more information just send an email and I’ll get everything to you.
