A Blogging Break + Some Printables


One of my resolutions of 2012 was to start this blog.  I must say that this blog has been a source of great joy for me as well as made me somewhat wonky.  Being as OCD as I am and running a blog, has really started to wear on me as well as my family life.  I feel like I can never relax anymore.  I am always going and the brain is always stirring for wanting to bring you the newest creative idea.  Working full-time, being a mom and wife, and writing a blog has me going through life always rushing. The designing, the photo taking, the photo editing-is taking up way more of my life than I had ever hoped it would.  So as sad as I am to announce this, I am going to be taking an indefinite break from blogging.  I don't want to say that I am totally done, but just done for now.  However, if and when I blog again, I will bring you crafts that naturally spring from my life and not the other way around.  As much as I craft already, I would never do as much as if I didn't have this blog.  I went ahead and attached these Valentine's Printables for you all, since I had already started working on them.  Printable links under each picture.

  7. I have enjoyed your blog also, but I completely understand about taking a break. It is the reason I never started my own. I just couldn't take the amount of time to do it right.(I get the OCD/perfectionist thing!) You take whatever time you need. I will continue to follow you in hopes that your clean, beautiful style will come back to us someday. Blessings to you and yours. P.S. Thank you for the printables!

  8. I am sad that you are taking a break, but completely understand the reasons why. I, for one, will miss your clean, beautiful style and great ideas, but support your decision. I will continue to follow your blog in hopes that someday you will return and share something with us. Thank you for the time you did devote to your blog. I appreciate it, but I will miss seeing something new from you in my reader! Take care of yourself Natalie. P.S. Thank you for the printables!

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to spend more time with my family, I am NO LONGER taking any special requests for designs. You are welcome to use the free-printables that I have already provided via download links. God Bless!
