Good excuses and new adventures

Oh how I wish I were better/more consistent at blogging! It seems that months can go by without my knowledge. Father Time, you are a cruel master!

But I do have a good excuse this time.

No really, I do!

All of my time has been taken up with my new business venture called The Craft Mom. The Craft Mom is a website devoted to helping you find the best deals and coupons for all your crafting needs, along with local craft events, projects, and more!

Let me give you some background:

My wonderfully talented friend Julia Sandvoss is an absolute whiz at marketing. She is one of those people who can sell ice to Eskimos. She called me up one day and pitched an idea to me. It was an idea for a couponing-type website but for craft supplies. I saw the potential, we hammered out some details, and we were in business!

The Craft Mom has been growing by leaps and bounds since day 1. We are having so much fun with it, and I feel like I have found my niche in the craft industry.

But when in order to change and grow, we have to leave some things behind. Therefore, I have had to give up my old website Better Living Through Scrapbooking and all of my design team duties. Getting The Craft Mom off the ground has taken lots of time and lots of effort, so it's been hard to do much of anything else. I have barely done any crafting at all since we started. However, I am slowly getting back into crafting; I'm hoping to really get back into the swing of things in the new year.

So my goal for now is to share new creations or just a little note here at least once a week to let y'all know that I am still alive and still devoted to crafting. And I would love for you to stop by The Craft Mom (and check us out on Facebook too). We are working hard over there every single day!

Until next time...
