Resurrect this blog, or not?!

So it finally happened…I made a card. A Christmas card for the first time in four years’ time. My last blog post is actually almost to the day 4 years ago. After having run the Live & Love Crafts Online Store for close to 5 years when crafting was not just a hobby of mine, but also an integral part of my job, I was utterly fed up with it. I stopped crafting and blogging, left all the crafting groups I had been a member of on Facebook. I wanted no more cards and paper projects in my social media flow! More than once I considered selling my private stash. However; I reckoned first I’d need to sell the left overs from the store, and that’s hard work. I’ve listed a couple of things on E-bay now and then. Truth is that it’s quite frustrating selling on E-bay as it’s tedious to list items and often takes an eternity to get them sold…

Anyway; I was asked by family members for Christmas cards this year, so I dug out some old ones I had made in 2015, however I was one short, so made this card:Some details: distressed edges with Vintage Photo, applied Snow Tex here and there. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, natural sisal.As mentioned above, it has been years since I last had any connection with the crafting world, so once I had finished and taken photos of the card I was like “and then? What do I do now; do I blog this card, or do I just store it away in a folder on my laptop…do people even use blogs these days? ” Started checking some of the links listed on my blog to see if that was still the case; many talented crafters have stopped blogging, some even deleted their blogs, a lot of challenge blogs have sadly closed down. 🙁 Nevertheless; there seems to still be some blog activity ongoing, so I decided to continue for now.  If I’ll stay at it, I’m not sure. Depends how I feel about it and if I think it has meaning and a role to play in my life.  But time will tell…
