I'm not dead!

Retro Card 1
Originally uploaded by mantequilla81

I know, I know, I've been dreadful about updating this blog.

Part of it was lack of time - I was busy cranking out Xmas gifts.

Then it was lack of inspiration. There are so many blogs out there centered around crafting, I don't quite know how to make mine interesting, let alone relevant.

THEN it was actually getting a long-term sub gig that kept me tired and busy.

FINALLY it was due to adding a new member to the family. I blame this devil:

Don't be fooled by her adorableness, she's... well, she's not evil, she's just distracting. xD

I do want to make this a regularly updated blog. Maybe not daily, but at least weekly. For now, it might just be a "Look what I made!" blog, and that's fine, as I find my niche. I won't say that there won't occasionally be a blathering about other creative things, though, like theory or people I admire that are what I deem "creative". I also might blog about style as it relates to me, as I'm trying to pull myself out of a self-imposed duldrums when it comes to self-expression.

In the meantime, I wanted to start the new year on the right track and say "Hello!" I am re-committing to this blog, there's no point in having it and not using it, and I really do want to show what I make more often.

Happy 2010! Let's make this an awesome one, eh?
