Today I found my old blog on the Wayback Machine. I’d forgotten how many fun crafts and recipes I’d featured over the years! So, I copied a lot of them and you’ll be seeing them in the near future on here. Unfortunately, I have to redo the pictures on most, if not all of them. Talk about HORRIBLE! I’m pretty surprised anyone read that blog at all.
In case you’re not familiar, Wayback machine is a site that lets you look at old web pages. You just go to https://web.archive.org/ and type in the site you’d like to look at. It’s super easy to do. And kind of scary, because it really is true that once something hits the internet it never ever goes away.
It’s pretty amazing the way things change over the years. Since that blog, my youngest is almost 9, the big girls have grown, gone to college and gotten married, and I now have a granddaughter. We’ve come a long way, baby!
The one thing that that really struck me about the old blog is that the writing was way better. It was more personable, it was funnier, and I really enjoyed it. This time around, my blog is more essay-ish. And that makes me sad.
Is essay-ish even a word?
Anyway, I’m working on finding my “voice” again, and lucky for all of you, it happens to come in the form of crafts like secret hiding spots in books, coffee filter wreaths, and Marilyn Monroe coasters. Which I’ll be sharing as soon as I take new pictures.
Starting over is always fun, and I can’t think of a better time to do it than now, in my favorite time of year!
I absolutely adore fall weather! Growing up in the Catskill mountains, I have to say that I was definitely spoiled. Here in the Mohawk Valley I don’t think it’s quite as pretty, but it’s still the best season.
Except for Halloween.
And pumpkin spice. Yuck. I don’t understand what any of you see in that crap.
But, much like Sophia from the Golden Girls, I digress.
Speaking of the Golden Girls, I saw this the other day. If someone wants to send me this for Christmas, I’d be thrilled! (Amazon affiliate link)
That’s it for today… I think anyway! Look forward to some new (old) things and some new (new) things with an old voice!
