a ramble

This is a ramble I will warn you.
I've been away because honestly I have done nothing creative in months.  We have a lot of personal stuff going on right now and real life hinges on the outcome of those events. 

I do know that I have decided wholeheartedly to stop the Tattered & Timeless furniture and crafting business.  I just don't have the time nor the inclination to do it anymore.  My heart is not in it.  Don't get me wrong I will die with a glue gun in my hand but I want to create for me not for the push of the sale.  It seemed more of a "have to" before when I really would like it to be a "want to". 

I am pondering if I should continue to blog or stop that too.  I do like keeping a journal but this blog seemed more of an out of whack place that chronicled business and family in the most haphazard way.  If I do blog I want it to be more of a everyday life blog.  Family, home decor, diy, recipes - you know LIFE. 

Knowing that is the direction that my life is going the name Tattered & Timeless doesn't work for me.  I want a break from it for many reasons.  One it just reminds me of the business and though I loved it and in a small way miss it - it makes me sad to see it over and over.  I think a more generic name that encompasses just everyday is what I need.  So if you see a post soon asking you to come find me again please do. 

It might be a bit till I post as I have to muddle this through and deal with those personal problems that are plaguing us right now. 
Ahhh change - it is scary but exciting and always new. 

until next time,


  1. I'm sorry to hear you've been going through a rough time. I'd hate for you to quit blogging because I think you have some neat ideas. I like your idea of making your blog more about your life, but then, that's how I feel about my blog too.

    I hope everything turns out well, and hope to see your posts again soon.

  2. I visit occasionally and rarely comment, but I'm sorry to hear that what you have enjoyed has turned into a challenge at this point in your life. You have incredible talent & I hope you find that inner peace to make this what you truly want it to be. Lately, I keep hearing that same story throughout blogland that the blog/biz has lost it's sparkle, and I have to admit that in so many blogs I see, it's more business oriented than creativity at its finest. I wish you all the best of luck & hope you make the decision that is best for you and your family. That is always first!
