Something Good is Going to Happen

I've come off an exhausting two week period of report card writing, marking, late-night planning, and generally feeling dissatisfied with the state of my grinding daily routine. I love my job, but I find the work week very tiring: the morning rush, feeling like I'm never doing enough with my class even though I'm doing as much as I can, gulping lunch down and leaving work feeling like I forgot to do something important, not having enough time with my family... Does this sound familiar? Sometimes what I want more than anything else is to move to some big country house and spend my days with my family in the garden and looking after hens.

The last time I was truly happy about the state of my little universe was last Christmas holiday. I stumbled upon this world of arts and crafty bloggers and I had time to indulge in some of the projects featured. These blogs have brought me so much contentment. I love looking at hand-crafted items and pretty things. To this end, I'll start linking some of my favourite crafty blogs over to the right. Occasionally, I'll give a shout out to some to draw attention to blogs I think vintage/thrift bloggers would enjoy.
P.S. Life really is too short.


  1. Erin I understand the rush we feel as life goes by! We have to make time to stop and enjoy, I know you will! thanks for sharing some crafty blogs with us. Tis the Season!

  2. I know what you mean actually... I'm feeling a little like that myself. I was just thinking the other day - if I could only not sleep.

    and how silly is that. You just have to enjoy while your doing.
