Back to Blogging, with a Passion

Hello friends, old and new. It’s been a while....a long while. Let me tell you, I’ve missed blogging. So. Much.

But life, now with two kids, had just become way too hectic and busy and crazy for me to find the time. With a colicky baby, a rambunctious kindergartener, my full time job, the housework, etc. etc. etc. I barely had time to breathe. 

So what have I been up to, you say, besides living the working mom nightmare, er dream, I mean. Well, I decided to start a side hustle and opened an Etsy shop, Blue Sparrow Vintage Co to earn some extra cash and fulfill my constant itch to make things. I also started a short lived blog (don’t worry I wasn’t cheating on Thrifty Artsy Girl, just expanding my horizons πŸ˜‰) with my friend Tarah that was about DIY and mom life. Unfortunately, neither of us had the time to blog because of all the above named reasons that I had for taking this long sabbatical from Thrifty Artsy Girl. And of course I was still working hard on numerous projects around the house, taking pictures along the way so that I could blog about them when I finally found the time. 

I'm ecstatic to say that time is NOW! Yay!! I'm hoping to post once or twice a month, just like before. I'm also super excited to introduce a (sort of) guest blogger, Cheap Creative Guy, who is none other than my other half Cory, who will be blogging about his own thrifty, artsy endeavors.

I'm going to dive right back in with a bunch of posts about my son Jackson's big boy room πŸ˜Š. I made an inspiration board to give you guys a little sneak peek at some of the design elements of the room.

I’ve got sooo much to show you guys! Here’s my tentative to do list for some of my upcoming blog posts:

  • Jackson's big boy room
  • Brynlee's nursery
  • Entryway makeover
  • Couch Project
  • Continued Kitchen Cabinet Projects
  • Dining Room Makeover
  • Finally finish the kid's Bathroom

Of course there will be other project posts sprinkled in there because of my serious case of DIY ADD πŸ˜‰.

My kids have obviously grown and changed a lot over the years that I took my break. Here are a couple pictures of my kiddos together over the past few years to catch you all up (and I gotta brag a little about my pride and joy πŸ˜‰).

To be honest, it’s still crazy with a “glued to my side” toddler,  a “busy with all the things” second grader, my full time job, my Etsy shop and everything else, but I’m going to give myself moments to breathe and do something that I love and miss. I’m so glad to be writing this post and I can’t wait to get back to blogging!

Merry Christmas everyone! I’ll see you all in the new year with new posts!
