For almost a year this has really perplexed me- making me feel incredibly neglectful of this beautiful little baby that I built. So much guilt!
Suddenly I’ve realised- blogging is supposed to be fun. I’ve never wanted to think of it as a chore- so I’ve only ever put up posts that I really wanted to share with the world- blame my internal Editor.
I create web content all day for work- is it any surprise that when I get home the last thing I want to do is look at another screen? In fact, when I get home, I walk straight to my room to get changed into my daggy T-shirt and shorts, chuck my hair up in a ponytail, kiss my gorgeous husband and walk directly out to the balcony to work on my current project.
After a long day at work, I’m just not interested in that computer mouse- the only thing I want under my right hand is a sanding block, paint brush, drill…there’s nothing like the feeling of creating something REAL. Even if it’s just for an hour, for a brief moment of my day, I need to make something with wood, clay, paint…something solid.
Unlike most people, I have no problem with the concept of a perpetual to-do list. It’s a form of meditation for me. My brain switches into a completely different mode and my body and mind are working together.
My husband recently said he thinks we could handle live-in renovating- I cannot imagine anything more blissful.
And you know what? I believe I am not alone! I love nothing more than getting inspired by other people’s projects and finding out exactly how people made things work for them- a crafting community. I have done so much in the past couple of months and I have been documenting it all- so here I go people! I’m back! Re-energised and inspired- with the same filter- nothing goes up here that I don’t really want to share with the world- and I’ve got a world of projects to share :)
Thanks for reading The Nookbook.
