Waking Up From Hibernation

It’s been 3 months to the day since I last wrote. It was never my intention to go so long without writing, but it happened all the same. But I’ll attempt to make it up to you.

While in the blogosphere it may appear that I haven’t been up to much, the complete opposite is true. I’ve been making life changes, starting a new business venture, making more time for the things I love (like people and books) and spent a whopping 4 weeks in the homeland. I’ve discovered new talents – such as making the world’s best smoothie, and brushed off old ones – did you know I’m an extraordinary dancer? Ask AR, she’s seen it in action…it’s intimidating.

Along the way I often reflected about music, and thought in blog (the term I’ve created for when you think about something as if you were sharing it). I thought many times of writing about Christmas music, for example, but that’s going to have to wait until next year. So many favorites to share, and memories to retell. I did make one interesting observation though – my least favorite Christmas songs are Baby It’s Cold Outside and Santa Baby. That led to deeper rooted opinion/discovery – I have a general disdain for the use of the word baby unless it is actually referring to a small infant. Suitors take note.

Anyways, here are some highlights of things to come from me in the near future.

WE SELL JEWELRY!

The Crafty Audiophile and Friends now sell jewelry. By “friends”, I mean my wonderfully talented Mom, and by “jewelry” I mean absolutely awesome accessories that you will absolutely love. What? A good business woman always believes in her product. Formal announcement, links, etc to come soon. In the meantime here is a teaser pic.

NEW YEAR, NEW LOOK

With some assistance from my graphic design friends, this blog might actually start to look like what I’ve always envisioned for it. Get excited and stay tuned!

THING-A-DAY

I’ve once again pledged to participate in this year’s Thing-A-Day, where for the entire month of February I will be creative for at least 30 minutes a day and document the process. Here’s hoping I can keep the trips to the local crafty dispencary to a minimum this year. They start to look at you really crazy like after awhile. Once again I’m participating with the very talented Meagan – it’s fun to have someone going through the project with you. I can’t wait to see what amazing things she’ll make.

AND SO MUCH MUSIC

We have BIG things to talk about related to music. I have a lot of songs and memories to share, and musical adventures yet to document. Similar to last year, I promise to keep up with the music blogs during the TAD crafting madness, as I know many of you are not crafters. I’ll do my best to balance the two.

Thank you for your continued support and for going on this journey with me.
