I have some confessing to do...
Although we made it home, from our amazing travels abroad, just before Christmas, it's taken me over a month to figure out what exactly I want to do with the whole blogging/crafting/DIYing thing here at Strawberry Roan.

See, as our place is still rented out and we are tossing around the idea of more travel later this year, I don't really have the space/supplies/setup/equipment to take on some of my most loves, but messiest, DIY desires (think refinishing and upholstery and paint).
Although I am without my crafting bat-cave, the one thing I do have now more than ever is time. Whereas before all my crafty dreams were simmering on the back burner because of work and responsibilities, now I find myself with oodles of time and zero obligations.

Imagine the possibilities...
In fact I have, to the point of becoming a bit overwhelmed with all the ways I can spend my new found freedom. Apparently when met with limitless opportunity to go craft wild, my perfectionist self decides to stress out and lose sleep contemplating all the ways I can mess it up. As it turns out, the only way to mess up a lifestyle of open possibilities is to spend your time worrying.
Although I'm still trying to sort out craft space and projects that can be accomplished with a spread-out-between-places living situation, I have decided to take up knitting and am loving it so far and have a lengthy list of new recipes to try. While I tackle these projects I'll continue to share the results here for all those interested.
I'll also be playing with the format of my posts and the ideas/content I share, just to spice things up a bit, which means there may be fewer posts than last year, or even some post-less weeks, but just know I'm working on something (hopefully) great to share soon!
Here's to a wonderful (and crafty) 2013!
