If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know I have a craft blog. 

CutieQ Cards n Crafts

I have to be completely honest and confess that I have the most difficult time keeping it up. 

There are photos that need to be taken, then edited, then the blog posts need more care because of the photos that need to be added to them. 

It takes a lot of time. Time I don’t really have to keep it going on a daily or weekly basis. 

Plus it means I have to constantly be creating. That’s near impossible at this stage of my life. 

It’s disappointing that I can’t get my act straight to keep up with it.

So I’ve been thinking of adding more crafting here. I could turn this into a “mommy/crafting” blog.  It would be a temporary thing, until I can sanely pull them apart and keep two blogs successfully running at the same time. 

What do you think?  Would it cause you to not want to read my blog? Would you want to know more about my crafty side?

Let me know. 

I’ve been crafting.  I’m sure you can tell.

Quilts.  Pinterest projects.  Scrapbooks.  Cards.  Ricebags.

I do have a craft blog, CutieQ Cards n Crafts.  It’s a place where I concentrate soley on crafting, particular cards and scrapbooking.  The goal of that blog is to feature cards that I put on Etsy and hope to sell.

That blog has been stagnant since May 2014.

It’s hard to keep up a craft blog.  There is a lot of photography, watermarking, uploading.. technical stuff.

It got hard to balance this blog with that blog, then all the pregnancy issues came about… so my entire life was put on hold.

Now that things are relatively ok (modified bedrest allows me time to sit up and craft, type and actually do stuff), I’ve been thinking about that blog again.

I still have dreams and goals of selling my handmade cards and other goods, but I have to be realistic and put that on hold for awhile.  A new baby will make it hard to keep up with inventory and orders.

I know starting up the crafting blog while pushing 8 months into a pregnancy is not the best idea.  Things are going to get hectic again and I just might not be able to keep up with it all.  But I want to do this.  I need to do this.

So, I’m going to do it.

It’s going to be a once a week blog, updating every Monday.  I’m going to try to keep up with holidays and seasons.  I will try to make it a well-rounded blog about all the different methods of crafting that I am dabbling in.  Eventually, I will start to feature items that I intend on selling and will reactivate the Etsy store with all the featured items.

The blog relaunches on December 1st.  In the meantime, check out what I’ve done in the past by clicking the link, CutieQ Cards n Crafts.

Lately, I’ve realized that keeping up with two blogs is just too much.

Yes, I have two blogs.  My other blog is a crafting blog, CutieQ Cards n Crafts.

For awhile, I was able to keep up with bi-weekly posting on that blog and daily posting on this blog.

But now, it’s just getting to be too hard.

I thought having two blogs would be easy.  I didn’t want to mix them up.  Not every parent wants to read about crafts.  Not every crafter wants to read about parenting.

So, I’m posting the question here.  I’m looking for your advice.

Should I mix the two blogs?

Should I just include the crafting stuff here, under it’s own category? 

Would you read it?

Would you enjoy it?

Or should I just shape up and find a way to keep up with both again?

I’d love to know.  Leave your answers in the comments!

Well, I dropped the ball and kind of forgot to write a post for today.  Seeing that I don’t really have the time in the morning to write a nice concise blog entry, I figured that I’d just direct you to my craft blog today.

There’s a new entry about a scrapbook layout I just finished here.

And here’s the blog entry about the craft-related aspects of my daughter’s second birthday party here.

Feel free to look around. 

I promise tomorrow will be good.

It will be about the epic battle between mommy and toddler over the great milk v water debate!  I promise you won’t want to miss it!

I didn’t write any new blog posts this weekend, and I’m obviously very late about posting today.

It’s just been a very busy time for me, and the 7 days a week schedule has been difficult to maintain.  I’ve noticed that I’ve been filling some days with “filler” type entries, and I don’t know if I like that.

I want to fill this blog with good stories about my life and not filler..

So… to remedy this.. I’ve decided to treat this blog like my job. 

Monday thru Friday.

That means, I’ll have the weekends to spend the quality time with my family and get some great stories and blog entries from.  That also gives me time to create the memories I want to recreate and document on here.

I hope you understand why I’ve decided to change things up a little bit.  And I hope that you will enjoy the content so much more now that I’ll more down time to collect it.

Also, if I could do a quick plug in about my crafting blog, CutieQ Cards n Crafts.    I have a Facebook page of the same name dedicated to my crafting and would love more likes.  I’m doing a “like” challenge on the Facebook page and blog.  The official blog entry for this challenge is here

Basically, I want to get 150 likes on my Facebook page before the end of April.  If I received 150 likes, I would hold a giveaway of a set of handmade birthday cards. 

If you like crafts, handmade cards, and all that fun stuff, please visit my Facebook page “CutieQ Cards n Crafts,” and hit “like.”

Thanks so much for spending time on this blog.. I appreciate all of the readers and views I get on a daily basis.  I hope that I continue to entertain you with my stories and insights and my life!
