I’ve had a personal blog for quite a few years now and I still keep it (fairly) updated. So why am I starting a new place to play online? Well, my personal blog is just that – it’s personal! It’s more of a digital smashbook: a disorganized hodge-podge of whatever is going on in my head at that moment. I have a few regular readers, but I don’t write to be read there, if that makes any sense. Lately I’ve had the urge to share my creative endeavors with the online community, but sharing them on my personal blog which is *filled* with pictures of my kid (who is, of course, the most adorable little boy in the world!) didn’t seem right. What’s the fun of sharing if you don’t want to invite folks to read and participate in conversation? Even though my personal blog isn’t private, I didn’t want to invite the whole world to talk there. So “And, in her Spare Time…” was born.
I’ll be reposting some of the projects that I’d previously shared on my personal blog here as I set up this site, and then I’ll start sharing some of the things that I’m currently working on. I hope that you’ll enjoy my “get real crafting” posts and that you’ll share your ideas and experiences too!
