Hello there. Glad to be back. I bet you were wondering if I was ever coming back. I hope your holidays were just wonderful. You can read about how we spent our holidays here.
I have been thinking about this for a while and just need to put it out there, so if you are interested in reading it then please bear with me. I do tend to ramble.
Let me start by saying that I tend to compartmentalize things. Simplified, my life is separating whites and colors. Girl things and boy things. Dishes on one shelf, glasses on another. You know. The same goes for my personal life. College friends and church friends. Couple friends and playgroup friends. Family blog and "work" blog. You get the point.
I started this blog with the intention of following a big passion of mine that also happens to be a big part of our families income- sewing. It is new(er) to me and I have filled thousands of hours of free time creating things for precious little ones. There is so much fun information and inspiration to share with other sewers so I decided to document it on this blog. That idea easily turned into following crafts in general and not just sewing. I was still okay with that because quite frankly, sewing and crafting go hand in hand. I figured it still applied to my readers and therefore made sense.
The problem is this. I am passionate about a bunch of stuff. As compartmental as many things are in my life my passions are truly all over the place. Maybe it is because I have two little ones and everything feels chaotic, but I can be pretty scatterbrained these days (hence this rambling post). I do love sewing and crafting, but I also love photography. I like to cook when I find an easy recipe that fits our schedule. I like to talk about my kids and what is going on with them. I also really need a place to just vent sometimes.
Since I like things neat and in their own place, I want to keep my family blog about family. Specifically it is an online scrapbook of my kids. I really don't want to keep up with 20 blogs, so what I am proposing is this....Can I use this Noodles & Milk blog as my catch all for everything else? Can this space act as my place for all the random things that I love? Will you still read it if it is?
I want to write about kids idiosyncrasies, what I am learning about photographing, inspiring sewing, mom frustrations, great recipes I come across and of course the occasional giveaways and featured shops (because I do love promoting other crafty businesses and moms).
Is anyone out there? What do you think?
