Gosh, I don’t even know how to begin this post… I’ve been away for so long that I don’t even remember how to open a new blog post anymore!
But I really do feel like I owe you an explanation. You, my loyal blog reader, who’s been reading my blog even when I didn’t post anything; who left comments on all social channels wondering where I had gone; who kept checking back here to see if had come back to life yet.
First of all: I’m sorry for my absence! I can’t believe I’ve been gone for over 2 months… I even missed my blogiversary, can you believe it?
And the weirdest part of it all is that I don’t even have a good, solid explanation for me not posting anything.
I guess life just happened, as it sometimes does.
Most of you don’t know this, but I am autistic. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, and because of that I haven’t had a job in over two years. Crocheting and being creative has really helped me a lot with dealing with my autism, and my blog was a great outlet for me, a place to voice my creativity and feel welcome and appreciated.
But of course, when you don’t have a job, you have no income. I won’t get into the specifics of my financial situation, but let’s just say that it was time for a change. And with that change, a lot of other things changed. I felt like I had lost my mojo or something! I was still being creative, but I just didn’t feel the need to share it anymore. I was really struggling to find my voice again, and because of that I have neglected the crafty side of the internet. I haven’t read any blog posts, haven’t checked my Twitter feed, and to make matters worse, I got a new phone which means that I am unable to post anything to Instagram… First-world problems, right? ;)
Seriously, my crochet mojo was basically non-existing for a long time.
But I realize now that I don’t need to have mojo everyday, all the time. It’s totally fine if I don’t feel creative for a day, right?
So without further ado, I now announce that I will try blogging again! :)
I have missed all of you so so much, and I hope you understand where I’m coming from with this.
I *did* make some things in the last two months, and I can’t wait to share it with you all! :)
ps my hair is now completely pink! ;)
