striking a balance

mesh house

I'm so glad that many of you enjoyed making the Valentine's Day match box. I still really, really like that project. I say 'still' because many times I go back and look at things and wish I had tweaked this or that—the matchbox just seems right the way it is.

Last week I was struggling with what to focus on. You see, there are some things that I've had to take care of that require me to put my 'mommy hat' on exclusively. When I'm in that mode, craft and work take second place. It fades and becomes a blur.

Somehow it seems suitable that my latest SVG home decor project is a Mesh House. As corny as it sounds... our home, our family life, is where my heart really is centered. I can't move forward until all is well with them—which it is again.

I don't mean to sound secretive... it's just that sometimes I still have a hard time with the what's-too-personal vs I can-tell-all line—so I'd rather err on the side of caution. It's a tricky thing where it's my instinct that takes the lead. I'm sure you've all been there at some point.

The important thing is that we're all ok and I'm back in the saddle.

By the way, I realize that there are many of you that can't tackle the SVG types of projects because you simply don't have the digital cutters. I don't want you to feel left out. So, I'm trying to balance my ideas between what is doable with fancy tools vs what is doable with what you have at home. In other words, fear not, more ideas are coming!
