It’s July 2020 and it’s time for a Blog update! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this blog and where I want it to go. Do I still want to blog about crafting? What about my original idea from 10 years ago to create a blog about hiking and reading? I have been sharing about my favorite hikes, but have not included books. Instead, I focused on crafting while trying to build my Etsy business, which is currently on hold while I’m in grad school. I had a new idea to create a podcast reading bedtime stories and that I would use this blog to post them. Then the pandemic swept across the country, shut down schools and moved teaching to online, and really shook up goals and plans for 2020. Even though I was teaching from home, my days were still just as full as if I was teaching at my school; all this while listening to others talk about all the free time they now had and what to do during it. Through this, I was still taking classes to finish up my Masters in Education (I am so close to the finish line! If you would like to read more about my experiences, click on the link to my “History Meets Tech” website: https://historymeetstech.wixsite.com/website.)
So, for the next few posts, I have lined up a hike, a source of inspiration, and an introduction to what I’ve been reading. I will no longer be writing crafting articles, but I encourage you to follow me on Instagram @snowywindgrams where I post photos and stories of my creative processes and projects. Additionally, there is information about my crafting on both the ‘About’ and ‘Craft Show Photo Gallery’ pages. Also, I have updated my 'Music Studio' page. Following a brief bio, I posted “My Music Experience,” the story of my musical journey. And that’s where I’m at right now.
