I started this blog some time ago, thinking it would become a great avenue to share ideas, projects and inspiration with anyone willing to read it. I really had no idea what to expect or really how to even run a blog, I just figured I would learn along the way. Initially, I thought I would be posting all about decorating and design, but what it has evolved into is more of a DIY, decor on a dime, arts and crafts, tablescapes, and photography (I am a real camera junkie) blog. I'm kinda squirrely like that. I'm all over the place, Lord knows what I'm going to be posting about next! Thank you for sticking around with me all this time!
What I never intended to do was offend anyone or make anyone feel like I am doing something extraordinary here. I am just a creative girl landlocked in the Midwest, wishing they sold salt air in a bottle, sharing my life with you! That's it! Pure and simple.
I usually don't get super personal on this blog, I mean come on, this is Internet, after all, but maybe I've made a mistake by doing that. Maybe I've created some kind of persona that I live in some kind of 'magazine world', I'm here to tell you friends, that is not the case here. I struggle to keep my head above water, just like the rest of us...
There is nothing like an anonymous comment to really get your mind thinking.
I am not offended by this comment, in fact, I'm not really offended easily, but it did start making me think about what you:the reader, sees of me: Michelle.
HOW DO YOU FIND TIME WITH CHILDREN,HUSBAND,HOUSEKEEPING,ETC.TO SHOOT PICTURES,MAKE CRAFTS, DECORATE ROOMS,POST ON FACEBOOK TO ALL YOUR FANS? I HAVE READ THIS SITE A FEW TIMES AND WONDERED IF ONE PERSON DOES ALL THIS OR IF HUBBY IS CHIEF COOK AND BOTTLE WASHER???....WE SHOULD ALL BE THAT LUCKY!!!DO YOU EVER GET A BIG HEAD OVER THIS!!THIS IS FOR ALL OF US THAT CAN'T SEEM TO FIND TIME TO DO THESE THINGS IN REAL TIME
To address the first question, I don't find the time to keep up with everything. If I did, my Etsy Shop would be well stocked, all the laundry would be folded, my flower bed would be weeded, and my legs would be shaven, I could go on and on. But such is life, I try to do as many things as I can, to the best of my ability.
Thank God, I do have a supportive, loving, handy husband, who puts up with me, oh and doesn't mind cooking, and I thank God for him everyday. Without him, or his family for that matter, well, I don't know what I would do. Unfortunately, I was born without the cooking gene, so that part I never really did, or didn't do. He knew that before we got married.
And then there is the question of whether or not I get a "big head over this?" That is the part that I'm a little perplexed about. I am left scratching my head and wondering...a big head over what? That I enjoy being behind the lens, that I enjoy crafting and painting and creating? I would hope that you come to my site it enjoy all those things with me, not that I am dangling it in front of you saying " See what I can do and you can't", that was never my intention. I always felt like I am saying "If I can do it, so can you!" I would never want to make someone feel bad about themselves, I only wanted to offer encouragement and inspiration. I always thought that was the beauty of this online community, to share with like-minded people. So If I have made anyone feel in any way bad, please forgive me. That is never my intention at all.
