I am so behind on this page and my projects for this page. It’s awful. I promise you I’m around, I’m alive, and I’m working.
For the last week? Two weeks? Three weeks? I don’t even know anymore, I have not been to sleep before 2 am. I am SO tired ya’ll. Yesterday I spent the entire day on the couch, looking at old craft magazines and trying to take a nap. I was so tired my legs hurt. No nap was to be had. Then I fell asleep watching a movie with my son at 9:30 and my body finally had the nap it needed. The only problem was that it set me up for another 2 am night afterward.
I have mentioned I have a son. He’s wonderful. However, he is not neurotypical. I still get him to bed every night and listen to non-stop chatter through the day. He’s ten. Funny side story, last week one of his spelling words was “little,” and the struggle was hilarious! For some reason every single time he tried to spell little he would spell litter! And I mean back to back to back. Like this
“No, that’s litter.”
“Okay! I got it. L-I-T-T-E-R!” *Funny face knows what he did* “L-I-T-T-E-R!” “L-I-T-T-pause-E-Pause-L!” “No, L-E”
“L-I-T-T-E-pause-R!” It’s the Asia story all over again (a funny story for another day perhaps.)
So anyway, I’m behind. I’m struggling. I have a finished pattern to give you for the Ann Shawl but with a lighter yarn.I still need to photograph it. It’s the 5th and I still have to debut this month’s magazine. I never shared one of the October magazine projects I did. I’m trying to review a product for a company and cannot get it to work properly. I’m a mess. I want you to know I feel really bad about it. You guys deserve better.
I’m telling you all this so you know I’m here, I’m human, and I promise I’m trying. I’m still going to be giving you crafty and vintage goodness. I’m also hoping to start revealing a bit more of myself to you. Let you know the Alicia behind the Workbasket. I swear the more ideas I have the more behind I get.
I’d love you to chime in on this: Do you prefer longer posts about specific projects, magazines, and crafts? Or would you love more regular posts even if they are quick, like a single photo of a funny ad, a story from my day, a project in progress, etc? Let me know in the comments below, or contact me!
