I started this blog three and a half years ago. It has seen me through a lot -- the birth of my third and fourth child, my entrance into the digi scrapping world, the beginning of my time as a designer, my new website, and much more. I have posted from six different houses that I have lived in. It chronicles a huge part of my life. And although I haven't been posting much over this past year, I haven't wanted to let it go. It means too much to me.
I have decided that now, for various reasons, I am going to stop posting to this blog. Remember though:
"When one door closes, another one opens."
And in this case, two doors will open.
Before we left the States I put together a family/friends blog to document our life here in Indonesia. I think I posted to it all but three or four times. I just didn't really know how to separate it from my own personal blog. But now I am blowing off the virtual dust and reopening that blog.
In addition, I am taking me and my mama-to-four, craft loving, scrapping obsessed, diary-like thoughts to a new home. You can find it HERE at www.thewellroundedmama.com This new blog will be what THIS IS MY LIFE used to be -- but even more. I want to share more craft and activity ideas, more parenting stuff, and be an open book on our first year of homeschooling. It will be very mom and craft focused and although my kids will be a huge part of (they ARE my life!) it won't be about them specifically.
Clear as mud? Here it is simply:
For family and friends who want to know about Jason, Janet, Alaina, Caleb, Levi and Katelynn and about our life and ministry here in Indonesia, visit:HERE IN INDONESIA (posts will most likely be weekly and include recent family photos)
For those who want to know about what the kids and I do to keep ourselves busy, want fun craft and recipe ideas, want to know my ramblings on life, marriage, and mothering, and want to watch up close what a new homeschooling family looks like, visit:
THE WELL ROUNDED MAMA (posts will be multiple times a week and include anything on my mind at the time)
Thank you to EVERYONE who has visited and commented over the last three and a half years. It has been an amazing journey and I hope you will follow me over to my new spaces. This blog, although not updated, will remain up so that you can read archives.
