Hi everyone, is there anyone out there?
Oh, good, there you are.
So I took a little break. 11 months or so. I was completely overwhelmed with figuring out blogging schedules, things to post, making stuff just to post it. You know how it goes. So I stopped. It cleared up a lot of things for me. I recently quit Facebook and that created so much space in my brain that I began to miss blogging and writing in general.
So, I decided to come back. To write, to create, to share, for all the reasons I started this blog in the first place. I refuse to get tied down by schedules. I’ll try to post consistently just so its not annoying for loyal readers. But I can’t promise anything more than what I’m able to get done today. I know now that this is actually a respectable thing to say. I know my limits. I know what makes me insane and what makes me happy. And I know what I’m passionate about.
In the past year I’ve moved more and more towards “art” over “craft”. I’m helping to organize and run a group of artists and a monthly art show. Its super important to me and I have created so many friendships. We put together out first Art Festival and it was a huge success. Learn more about this project here. I also run the instagram. Working with artists and organizing events is something I’m actually pretty good at. I’m a god damn professional.
I’ve also changed my name. I’m using my maiden name on my art now. Because my husband didn’t make any of it. Why should he get half the credit. 😉 I have been a Fiehn as long as I have been making. It was feeling fake to write Millies on my work.
I’m really looking forward to getting back into this. And I really REALLY hope that there will be someone out there reading.
Have you ever taken an extended break from something you loved?
