Flickr*ing thoughts

I've been thinking a lot about blogging. I've actually been insanely jealous of the beautiful blogs I frequent and how much I want to have a blog like theirs (take note of the long list of blogs on the right hand side).

But I've realised that in order to have a blog like that I'd need to have a life like theirs. Most often than not the most crafty ladies somehow manage to have babies as well. Having a baby is not an option I'm willing to choose in order to have a more funky blog. :}

But I have taken a lot of inspiration from these blogs. I've decided to not necessarily change my life but take more joy in what I already do. I don't very often blog about my day-to-day business being a full time student as I think that's not a very readable topic. Also this blog is supposed to be about my craftings. However I'm going to take the step of actually blogging about what I do in such a way that I hope will be inspiring to others as well.

I'm not in the fashion of talking arty-farty mumbo -jumbo to keep up with the blogging Jones' but I will take on the joy these bloggers have about their average lives an apply to it to mine.

I don't think that my life is all that average though. ;} But for now let me indulge my Flickr obsession.

  1. Hey Diane I always love reading your blog - I reckon it is one of those beautiful blogs you talk about! Have to admit though I get a bit slack at commenting on blogs so I'm trying to do it more regularly! Hopefully you'll see more comments from me in the future lol! I love those flickr inspirations that you do which reminds me I haven't done one of those for a while!
