Craft Journal

Craft Journal was my first blog/website.

I built it up from scratch so it means so much to me.

However, this week I have made the very difficult decision to close down the blog.

I started the blog back in 2005. At the time I was living in Edinburgh and only worked a few hours a week. Easy Craft Projects did not exist. Altered Chic wasn't even a dream then. I was just learning about the online crafting world. I had so much time to invest in a project like that.

Over the last 5 years I have taken on more and more commitments. I am now running the local Rainbow unit, working a 30 hour week in my day job. Working every evening and weekend on my business. I have come to the conclusions that I am burning myself out. Stressing myself out. And spreading myself too thinly.

I want to expand my business so that one day my dream will become reality. And I want to give my other projects the commitment they deserve.

This is why, sadly, I have come to this decision.

Craft Journal will be closing its 'doors' this weekend. But hopefully its spirit of inspiration will live on through this blog. My new creation.
