The Walking Dead

Contrary to popular belief I have not, in fact, been bludgeoned, shoved into the trunk of a car, driven out into the woods and dumped into a deep hole in the ground wrapped in a bloody sheet.

It's just not true.

See? Here I am typing. Rigor mortis would never let me type this freely.

So what exactly have I been up to?

That is a really good question and if you think you came up with that one all by your little self, you are dead wrong. Hence my "contrary to popular belief" opener.

Truth is, I got sick to death of the internet. After two solid years of blogging, I was just over it.

I didn't want to write another post, tweet another tweet or design another blog header.

I was tired of everything I created being made with the help of a keyboard and a mouse. I didn't want to spend one more evening with my laptop, caring what faceless people were doing.

So I put my hands on the canvas and paintbrushes that were dormant in my closet. I pulled out the piles of fabric that lay untouched. And? I taught myself to knit.

And did you know that there is relatively no drama involved in any of that, but a tremendous sense of self and accomplishment.

Yeah, weird, huh?

So what did I do? I created another blog. This time I'm doing it along with my husband because the two of us are never idle. There is always music to be made, things to be painted, old crap to be thrifted and projects to be created.

I hope you enjoy.

Chance are, you'll probably be bored. And I'm fine with that.

Dude, seriously. A whole month went by without a post from you. I was pretty sure you were doing it so that I would leave you alone. Because I'm an ego maniac.

But I'm glad you are back, crafty girl.
