Yes, I am still alive...web changes

It's been quite some time since I have posted to the blog. I have been busy with other things and not feeling inclined to write. I happened to check in to write a blog post for an Etsy team when I noticed that Blogger is discontinuing FTP publishing. I should explain that I only used Blogger to create my posts; the blog actually "lived" on my web host's servers, and I used FTP to upload the posts there when I published. So, with the disappearance of FTP, I was forced to choose between accepting a address, or creating a custom domain. I won't go into the technical details, but upon closer inspection, when I tried to "migrate" my blog to a custom domain, I had trouble. I couldn't access the files at my web host that I needed to alter in order to finish the process. I would have had to email my host to change the files. To make life simpler, I decided to accept a address for now, and work on creating a custom domain (no Blogspot in the address) later...or maybe even change blog host entirely.

So, if you follow my blog through an RSS feed, please change the link to Or bookmark the new address in your favorite links. I believe the old address will work for awhile, but to make sure you can still see the blog, please change the link information.

I do promise to get back to posting! I've been weaving, trying new fiber arts, creating new flower jewelry, and (finally) working on my own, stand-alone website. No wonder I have not had any time to write for the blog!

Be back soon...
