Goodbye Disney

At the beginning of this year I was starting my quest to learn to sew. I had finally gotten a sewing machine, and all I really lacked was the faith to believe in myself. That was until my older sister sent me a link to RufflesandStuff. When I saw Disney's beautiful blog my mind {and heart}was opened. I realized that 1. there are other women out there just like me, and 2. That the interenet was a huge resource to learn and grow from. When I look back now and realize how little time it has been I laugh and think why didn't I start this earlier.

Now Disney is leaving our little blogging world and I feel like I have lost a friend. I will miss how much I was inspired by her blog, and although Her creativity is amazing that wasn't what kept me coming back, or why she had close to 5000 followers!! Her spirit, openess, passion, and compassion for the people she blogged with is what kept me coming back. I am so thankful to have seen this glimpse into her life, however brief.

Her leaving has come at an interesing time for me since I have been considering making my blog a private one. I worry I would miss you all too much.
I am not sure what I will do, perhaps split the personal from the crafts, although I am not sure I can do this because my crafting experience has been really personal to me.

We shall see, so much to think about, I can't wait to come home. I have missed my Washington.

Oh Crystal. I'm going through this exact dilemma right now with my blog. I really feel like I should go private, but I LOVE the interaction with other bloggers. I've thought about attempting two blogs also, but at the moment I don't think that'd be the most responsible thing to do for my family. It takes a lot of time, ya know? I already have a post written in my drafts about going private, and I just can't bring myself to actually publish it! Ack! Sorry you're feeling so torn as well because I know the feeling and it stinks.

I had no idea you just started sewing this year! You are so amazing!
I split my family things from my craft things to make it easier. I am not too concerned about going private at this point. I am bit sheltered considering we live overseas at the moment. You need to do what is best for you. But know if you go private you will be missed!

These comments are the very sort of thing I would miss. I suppose I won't make I decision until I feel I impressed to do so. CArrie, I would miss you wit too much!!
