I’ve been thinking a lot about my little space on the Internet. A few years ago I spun my creative work off of my personal blog because they felt like two separate parts of me. Now they couldn’t be more intertwined.

This space isn’t going away. In fact, it will probably grow to include more aspects of my creative life. I don’t want it to become too cumbersome, but I need a place to document more of the whole me.

I wrote that back in June. Since then, I’ve been reading through my personal archives and realized there’s a lot of really great creative stuff over there.

I’ve decided to merge the two blogs back together. I plan on doing it chronologically, so you probably won’t notice. I thought you might want to take a look around before everything is whooshed over here.

I’m also planning to redesign this site. I’d love to have a menu at the top for different categories. My tutorial and pattern lists could use some organization and I’d like to share more photography and creative writing. The personal archives will be coming over, too. They are a huge part of me and I just can’t delete them.

Finally, I’d like to take a moment and thank you, dear readers, for visiting and commenting on what I’m doing. During the days/weeks/months where I thought I’d never be able to keep up my creativity, taking time to document things here has made such an impact. It may not have been much sometimes, but I never stopped making things.

Many of you have told me that I’ve inspired you to keep making things, too. Let’s promise to carve out a little bit of time everyday for our creative spirits, even if it’s only for five minutes. Reading through my archives made me realize those minutes really add up!

Let me know if there are any changes you’d like to see as I (slowly) rearrange the furniture around here.

    I was wondering if somehow you could share HOW you are doing this re-organization either after-the-fact or during? I cant tell where your blog is. Im at blogger. I have two blogs and just dont think I can/want to keep them separate anymore. (I started #2 to keep others posted during our adoption- so friends and family didnt see the personal posts or have to trudge through the knitting and painting.)Now I am finding I am okay with others seeing ALL of it. Just dont know how.Dont know how to start. Dont want to loose anything.
