Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Happy New Year

Can you believe it?

We are about to embark on another new year.

It just wouldn't feel right without recapping 2012, probably the least productive blogging year of my life.

Sorry about that.

I realized in May or June that I really needed to spend more time with my two little ones and less time writing about my crafting adventures.  I would love to say with some sincerity that 2013 will be different, the blog will be back in full force, the upcycling ideas will flow from my head with creative abandonment, but quite honestly, although these are my intentions I have been struggling getting some of the little things done in life, like say getting through the day without puking.

Yes I am pregnant with baby #3, a girl, and I have Hyperemesis Gravdarium. Which is basically morning sickness times 10. I am twenty-two weeks pregnant with my little bundle of joy and down two pounds.

So we will see where the new year takes me, my family, and my life as the T0shirt Diaries author and seamstress. I want to sew, I have a ton of crafty materials, but until I can get through the day without my head in a bucket it might be a while before I am kicking the sewing butt I once did.

Until then have a

Hi Robin! We miss you, but totally get why you're gone! In the new year I'm trying to do a year long personal de-stash quest, where the only things I'm allowed to buy are items that are necessary to get other projects finished! :)

Enjoy the new year with your family!
Congratulations on baby #3!! Although I'm so sorry it's coming along with the horrible sickness! It's definitely understandable to be absent for a while.

Also it's great that you spent more time with your family in 2012. It was my most unproductive year also, but that was because my whole year overall was a great big fail! Oh well, I have a good feeling about this coming year.

I hope you move past the sickness soon and are able to enjoy pregnancy for a while before welcoming your new baby!
Oh goodness I can't even imagine! I hope it slows down for you and you can be more comfortable.
Congratulations on baby #3!
Wonderful news.. hope everything goes well and that we will have the pleasure to see you come back to blogging :)
