But something happened as I started writing more about crafts and sewing, and especially as I started working on Sew Retro. I found myself reading other craft bloggers. First, I’d just pop in here and there. But more recently, I’ve been checking certain blogs every day, eagerly anticipating new entries. I’ve finally decided what the legions of craft bloggers have long known: blogs are pretty cool.
So I’ve decided to start one, not because I think I have to to “compete” (because I would never, ever, win--given the many gorgeous blogs already out there). Rather, I’m starting this blog because for the first time, I really want to. I actually feel like I have things to say that don’t quite fit in magazine stories or Facebook posts or random emails to friends.
I hope to write about sewing, of course. But also the world of craft book publishing (from the perspective of a first-time author) and marketing. Maybe a bit about being a mom, too (I have a 2-year-old, Max, and am due with #2 in six weeks), especially the fun and challenges of sewing for kids. We’ll see where it takes me! Feel free to check back in if you're so inclined.
