I’m not a New Year’s Resolution kind of person. I am more of a constant thought and self-improvement, change as soon as you need it type of person. This year a few changes that I need just happen to coincide with winter break, then with the holiday happenings are easier to implement in the New Year. Mostly I think because I was able to really take time and just think. Only one of these changes really affects this site or what you’ll see here.
By New Workbasket, I don’t mean my actual workbasket, which has been the same organized tote bag since I started this website actually, what I mean is that this website will be changing. For the better, I hope! From now on I’m ditching all the non-crafty stuff and ONLY discussing crafty things. More free patterns, more funky old crafts, more original ideas, more updates of crafts I’m doing behind the scenes, more videos and video tutorials, more crafty reviews, more crafts more crafts more crafts!
I’m telling you this for three reasons.
- 1. I always tell you almost everything and am super open.
- 2. This idea came to me in the middle of the holiday hub-bub and left me with almost NO January content. So the site is going to seem a bit lacking as I figure out new craft-related content to fill gaps left by planned non-crafty content. I may even save most of it for a real jump start in February. I have to also figure out how this crafty content, which takes far more time to make, will fit into my life and schedule.
- 3. This is a big one- Older non-crafty content is going to be harder to find here. I’m not removing any posts, at least I’m not planning to, BUT non-crafty stuff will be slowly disappearing from the main pages and harder to find. It’ll be around but not featured or highlighted. So if you have any posts I’ve made that you enjoy and aren’t crafty, I’d advise that you bookmark them for easier access.
So, that’s what is going on here in my world and on the site. I hope you’re excited about the changes!
And here, since all posts are better with a picture, is a recent picture of Kismet, because he’s adorable and any long-time reader has essentially seen him grow up into the furry beasty that he is.
