Taking a Break

As I was toying with the idea of taking a blogging break during the month of August, I came across this idea of posting picture posts for the month.  It's like taking a break but still being present in blog land.  You can read more about it and join in here.

Back in April, I closed my Etsy shop.  I was frustrated with Etsy for the way they were changing things without any kind of notification or explanation of the changes.  After my cooling off period, I've come to the conclusion that Etsy really is trying to help us, the seller, so we can be successful with our business.  At the same time, Etsy is doing what is best for Etsy as a company.

During this time I sort of lost my motivation to create.  Until I made an apron for a friend last month, I had no interest in sewing anymore.  Since then, I have made a couple of other things and have so many ideas for projects.  So during the month of August I plan to focus on creating and open my shop back up in September.  I'm pretty excited about this because I realized how much I enjoy being part of the Etsy community.

You might not read much from me this month, but I will still be here and still reading and commenting on your blogs!  I will leave you with this photo for today.
