I realised that I haven't posted in my PolyCraftual blog in over 2 months. This isn't for lack of time spent on the computer, although the amount of time spent on the computer has significantly reduced in the past couple of months. I've just not been crafting as much as I usually would. When I do craft, it tends to be smaller amounts of time.
There are a few reasons for this. One is I started working three months ago, so that takes up a chunk of my time. Especially as we've gone into the holiday period, people are on leave so I'm covering more clients, meaning more hours spent away from home. Another is my husband got work in another city, so he's only home during the weekend. This means during the week I'm it when it comes to childcare, and my daughter goes to bed about 10pm. I'd love her to go to bed earlier, and I've tried to get her to sleep earlier, but she like her daddy, a night owl, I'm learning to just go with it. Unfortunately this means by the time she's asleep and I've done the end of day things that make the morning easier, I'm ready to sleep too. I've also been trying to work on building some good habits and actively decluttering, which is being done in some of the time I would spend creating.
I like writing things down. Always have. Having a visual record of it helps with memories that so often change over time. It allows me to look back and see what progress I've made. Especially when progress is small and not otherwise noticable. Which helps with motivation, as so often when you can't see progress it's easier to give up. Or maybe that's just me...... So I've wanted to blog about what I'm doing. Not for anyone else, but for me, so I can see what progress I've made. I didn't think crafting blog was really a place to ramble about Project Simplify (I think that's what I'll call it, I'm not exactly sure, but I'll explain that in another post), so I started this one. Maybe it's biting off more than I can chew, with another blog when I've already got one I barely use, but it's where my mind is at currently.
So, here goes....
