Good Afternoon Everyone, this is just a short post to let everyone know that i am still alive and so is the blog!
Since the first of the year I have been going doing some soul searching on the direction my life and the life of the blog is taking. It has been 5 years I believe since I have been in a position to weave baskets (miss it very much) as it requires both creativity and analyitical uses of your brain. I enjoy both very much. However there comes a time when life must move on. Until such a time presents itself that I can find a place with the space to do it all correctly. So that I can come up with the same high quality work I was accustom to producing, I need to concentrate and put my energies into work that can be done within the confines of a small apartment.
I have been researching what is needed and involved in building a self hosted website. (based on the blog) and the art that I have done past and present. Just becuase the ability to be creative with basketry and chair caning / seat weaving is not exist at the present time where I live, does not mean the knowledge of sharing those things is not present.
I am looking forward to posting again on the array of topics that I have posted on over the years, as well as working to develope the new website, this can be done within the confines of a small space. Plus it keeps my mind alert and active., and gets me out into the world, because a blog and a website needs photography.
In the past couple of years I had went into a slump, on posting the most requested for recipes for Mennonite and Amish cooking, mainly due to the fact that I was now living with blood sugar problems. I have at least worked out in my mind now a strategy for overcoming this obstacle. I can cook regular food, photograph and share with friends and neighbors and others, enjoy a taste for myself (to ensure that the recipients are happy) as well a expanding my recipes into the recipes into a healthful (not meaning Mennonite and Amish cooking) is non healthful, but for people on restricted diets. I am looking forward to posting about container gardening and other peoples gardens as well. Just a few of the many topics I am intersted in as many of you know the diversity of the blog.
I will be posting on photography, as well as things photographed. As well as on the small arts ie watercolor painting and perhaps even more card making as these are small arts for confined areas.
