2011 blog banner
I’ve had my tagline Crafty, Yet Shy since I started my blog back in April 2005. It fit me perfectly and I found courage using it. It became a shield to protect myself as I entered the scary new world of blogging and to let people who visited my blog to get an instant insight into my life. I’m shy. It’s something I’ve struggled with all my life. Owning this trait also empowered me to start working through some of my shy-ness.

Luckily, we always continue to grow. Over the years, I started to enter the craft community. I made friends and went to events. In 2011, I did many things that were far from my comfort level – and I didn’t die. Probably the biggest accomplishment was participating as a vendor in the Mixer Match in August. The crafty, yet shy girl of yesteryear would never have attempted this. And I’m continuing to push that comfort zone. I’ve recently joined two committees. Since I’m not going to sell in 2012, I thought maybe committee work would be an outlet to help me stay in the craft community. Let me tell you, I am freaked (super freaked!) about being on these committees, but I also know it will be a great learning experience for me. It will help me to continue to grow.

When I decided to shift the goals of my home life, I knew I wanted to create a brand new blog banner to help make a visual shift too. Very organically, my new tagline emerged. Crafting a Better Life – encapsulates my change in path. It has a positive intention and a mandate for me to follow. My hope is that my blogging will spur me to make these new exciting changes for my household. What do you think of my new banner?
