Crafty 2018 !

It seems crazy that we are here to welcome yet another year beginning. I feel so lucky and blessed. It was hard to make it through 2017, but I made it.

And I also made a whole lot of knitting, crocheting, weaving, spinning,sewing, that I never had the time to post here, because I have way to many blogs and no time to for them. Even set up youtube channels but I don’t have the proper equipment to film nor the time to edit all of this. For those who manage to do it, how do you do it (I don’t have a handy life companion to film/edit/take pictures and so on.)

What do you guys think ? should I keep blogging here even if it’s only a few times a year ? Would you be more interested in a Youtube channel ? I’m not showing my face on the internet so I’d have to find a way, but I guess it’s possible.

I feel like I want to talk about so much stuff, yet end up forgetting about most of it because the blogging process is so long and complex, I need to write on the computer then reach for my ipod to upload pics, then go back to the computer to make it all look nice.

And I want to have more time to craft and less time swearing at computer screens. Life is too short.

I tried a very funny exercice : each time my computer or Ipod loads something I get up and do something else. You wouldn’t believe how productive and creative you become when you stop waiting for a page to load on a stupid screen.

Anyway, I wish you all a very crafty 2018 ! Do you have any wishes ? Do you plan on trying new techniques ?

    • I like having this blog as a little quiet place with no pressure. But sometimes I wish I could have more interactions with people. I set up youtube channels, one in french and one in english, only posted in french so far, but man that was a massive waste of time. I don’t have the proper equipment (and no budget to invest on that) so it takes forever to end up with crappy videos. That’s the french one : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4HUpx7lL0NgaTi4v8UaXAQ .

  1. I can never remember my login details to comment, so I hope this will reach you, Cathy.

    It seems like the trouble you have is all the technical stuff…Do you have a trusted friend who could do uploads of pics and text for you to your blog? That would make it a lot easier. You could email text and photos to that person and get on with your next project! :)

    I really enjoy your blog and appreciate your willingness to try new or different things and then show us how it went. I’d be sorry if you stopped…but hope that if you find it necessary, you’ll let us know where to find you in future–on youtube or wherever.

    Blessings to you, and a happy and creative new year! Sr. Dorothy

    • Thanks for your very kind words ! For some reasons I’m only reading this now, the mysteries of blogging !
      My nickname is actually “McGee”, if you’re familiar with NCIS that will give you an hint on how people think I’m good with computer (honestly not that good but I love the character), and they ask me to help them all the time.
      I think I struggle with time, and having so, so many differents blogs. But I’ve decided to go on, without pressure and we’ll see how it goes ! Messages like yours really make my days and give me that extra little push to keep writing !

  2. I enjoy reading your posts, even if there aren’t a lot of them. (It’s not like I’ve been posting a lot myself lately.) I don’t go on YouTube much, so I probably wouldn’t see your channel, even if you were putting stuff on the English one. But only do the blogging if you’re enjoying it, not because you feel obliged to!

    • I think it’s the key to everything, not just the internet, we forget to enjoy ourselves ! I don’t want to do something for the sake of it, so I’ll just follow my instinct on this one
