Yep, that’s right! And if you have a minute…I’d love to explain how I got here.
For the last few years I’ve been blogging at Life Love & Thyme (health, food, kids, lifestyle) and The Blogging Bunch (help for new bloggers). I’ve worked round the clock…I’ve mentored people and busted my butt…and neither is as successful or life changing (for me or the readers) as I want, hope and wish it would be.
So I’ve made attempts in the last year to do something different, but none of those made my heart sing…until now.
Why a New Blog?
I’ve had a hard life the last 5 years (you can read about it here if your interested). In the last 1.5 yrs I’ve gotten some clarity as to why those years were hard and I’ve chosen to make some changes.
In 2015 I lost 20 lbs, but more than the weight, I also shed the sadness of the last 5 years. Now I’m looking to find myself again. I started to think about what I want, what I love and what makes me smile.
I KNOW I want my own small business. And I KNOW that part of that business is blogging and social media. But what I found when I looked deep enough was that I also want to make things. I want to paint and draw and be creative. I used to LOVE paper piecing and scrapbooking and I still have most of the fun tools.
Then it clicked…I could put all of these things together in one place and call it Paper Craft Junkie.
Paper Craft Junkie is a community. And for my dreams to come true…I need you! Yes, there’s a blog, a Facebook page and an Instagram account, but there’s also a Facebook Group where we can talk and share ideas and tips and tricks.
But why is THIS blog going to be successful and life changing?
Simple, because it makes me smile. And my want, hope and wish is that it makes you smile too.
Here I will post cards, boxes and other handmade items that I create. I’ll work on making videos and sharing what I learn along the way. I’ll research what products work and which don’t to save you time…and money.
I’d also love to be able to share your work here too!
Please join my Facebook Group Paper Craft Junkies, and find your smile again too!
