Long time no see...

Well...this is awkward...

I can't believe my last post was back at Easter. I really dropped the ball didn't I!

I've been thinking a lot about this blog recently, how much I used to love hopping on every day and showing you all what I've been up to, the processes of my creativity etc, and it mad me really sad to think why I would stop so abruptly.

I had a big think about why I stopped and I guess there are a lot of reasons. Our home renovations-which have resulted in a major lack of space in which to work, Ava's reduced sleeping times, a lack of time in general really, but I think one of the main reasons-and it embarrasses me to say this- is simply due to the fact that I have let other people get me down and make me doubt myself. Seriously. How lame is that?!

Why do other people have to make it their business to make you doubt yourself? And why do we take things so personally?! Well, I know I certainly do/ The worst part is that I have let other people's opinions and criticisms get in the way of what I want to do creatively and now that I have worked this out and literally typed it out, it makes me so angry!

I could rant and rave but really, that's not going to get me anywhere really now, is it?

I think it's time I move on and get back on track with my creative tasks and making sure that I post them up here again. Perhaps not every day.... but at least once a week to get the ball rolling again.

I might start with some exciting room revels from our new renovated house! Keep your eyes peeled...

I may just be back, baby!

    Glad your back! Life and people do get in our way! I still take things personally and hear other peoples voices in my head. I have to constantly remind myself only I know what's best for me.
    Hope to read you more often!

    1. Thanks Beth, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one xo

  2. My goodness! I knew you'd been busy but sad to read such things had kept you from blogging. Very sad face Emmie - do not like.
    I hope renos and birthdays give you lots of inspiration and you can revel in some new blank slates that need your craft. Very glad to see you back! :D

    1. Thanks A! I think these blank slates are just calling for my love and attention and it's time I gave them the love they deserve! Thanks for your kind words xox

  3. Great to have you back Em! I wasnt too worried about the delay betweens posts as I thought you were off being a stage superstar :)
    I have missed reading your blog; I love seeing what you've been up to, especially as I am very not-crafty!
    There will always be nasty small minded people who make themselves feel better by taking down other people, and it's hard to ignore them. But that's not who we blog for. So keep being fabulous and I look forward to seeing what you're up to next xx

    1. Thanks Kim- I appreciate your understanding. People can be difficult, can't they! We just need to be brave and suck it up I guess, it's just taken me a bit longer than usual this time, but I'm back now. lovely to hear from you :)

    2. Haters gotta hate, bloggers gotta blog, Emmies gotta be creative! x
