Taking a Short Break

Artwork by Used under a Creative Commons license.

I am taking a very short break from the featured crafter segments, as life is getting in the way of blogging. I know, I know! Terrible, right? Is there anything other than blogging?

Apparently, there is. This crazy thing I have called a "full-time job" is making my life crazy stupid right now. Luckily, this job will be ending for this year, and I will have almost twelve weeks off!

Twelve weeks to blog, craft, craft, craft, sell crafts, write about crafts, publish several books, and spend a lot of time with my kid. I'm excited to fill my days with activities that I choose. I long for full self-employment, but it's just not to be right now.

Do you enjoy the featured crafter segments? I hope so. If you do, please click the "subscribe" button so that you don't miss an entry. Also, I need more crafters for the interviews! In the comments, could you please let me know the site of a crafter you think should be featured? I'm happy to look into their websites and shops.

I'll be back soon--I promise!


  1. I love the Featured Crafter!
    I would be so happy to be considered for a feature when you return:) I am a pediatric physical therapist/jewelry maker because I am too old and out of shape to be a model/actress.
    I do balance both, and would love to be considered for a feature. Enjoy your break, Amy. You deserve it!
    Sincerely, Norah

  2. I recently discovered your awesome blog via craftgawker, and I love the featured crafter posts! I'm having a good time reading your archives

    I'm just begining my online crafting journey (my blog is a week old, and I don't sell online... maybe some day). Your interviews are great and inspiring. Good luck with the balancing act, and enjoy your very well-deserved break!

  3. Thanks, Emily. I appreciate the feedback. Please feel free to follow my blog via the RSS feed, up in the top right. What's your blog?
