I want to apologize...

I want to apologize to my readers and to myself for my lack of updating. What have I been doing all this time since my last post? Well, since my post in August I have vended at the DIY Street Market in Ferndale. It was my first time, and it was great! It was a huge success, and I couldn't have done it without my friend Shannon. Literally, I couldn't. I guess she could say the same for me, but without her I wouldn't have been able to get accepted -- without me she couldn't have physically done the fair.

After the DIY Street Market I got in a little crafting slum. I was pretty much burnt out and decided to just focus a bit more at work. There were much changes and many openings to be full time. So I worked my keister to be impressive to my managers and I finally got around to updating my resume. And guess what! It worked! I got the promotion and I am full time, and so my official title is "Women's Accessories Team Lead." So far it's been pretty decent, and I think the title has given me a boost of confidence. I'm not saying I let the title get to my head because I'm still pretty much like my other coworkers. I just have more responsibilities.

So there was my promotion and the intensity of holiday shoppers, I've been more busy and tired. Which provided enough reason for me to be a couch potato. I did do a little of crafting, but that was just strictly for Christmas presents.

It's a new year and I have new ideas for what I want and need to do with my life. I want to keep blogging to help keep myself motivated, but I find myself not liking using this platform. I tend to use tumblr everyday, even when I'm not posting I'm on it getting my updates on my need to look at pictures of animals, music, crafts, fashion, nerdy-goodness, and more. So I have been thinking of moving made w/ love to tumblr. By no means am I going to delete this blog, because I'm sure I will reference to it, but this site seems to be too high maintenance for me.

One thing I'm unsure about is that I already have a tumblr for crafts as inspiration for others, and I was thinking of just using the.working.hands. as made w/ love, but I don't know if I want to transition that to be personal. I just don't know how to figure it out. If you read this, could you give me some insight? Much thanks!
