so....

I've been thinking for a while that it's time to slow my life right down and take a few steps back. Make a better balance between life and work.

I've decided to disable my blog, and my twitter account, I'm not saying I'll never be back, but I think it's quite unlikely. At least for the foreseeable future. And before anyone thinks I'm having a breakdown (MUM????) I'm not, I just want my life back and it's probably a perfect time, with the shift in my personal life and the new house and everything else. I don't have the time to sew so much any more, and that's a real shame, so I want to do more of that, and less of the social media stuff.

So, thank you for being there and reading my blog and following me and taking the time to comment. I appreciate it more than you could ever know. For now I'll still be on instagram, @imagingermonkey, so follow along if you would like and if you see me in the street, say hi!

I'll miss your blog but will see you on IG. We can't all do everything all the time. My most liberating day was when I admitted to myself that I am not a car driver.

Katelyn @ Sing While Crafting said...

Though I will miss your blog, I completely understand. Life is more important. Good luck with the move! Sending you happy thoughts and love. Hope to see your lovely sewing on IG soon.

Debbie said...

See you on Ig then...wishing you whatever is good for you...

Michele T said...

Wishing you all the best and I can see where a blog could gobble up all your creative time... but I will be looking for you in IG!!

I liked reading your blog. Hope you get more time to sew. Good luck for the future.

Dondi Murdock said...

I hope you have so many days of joy in the days and weeks to follow. I just bought a bright red journal whose bold cover proclaims, "It's going to be OK!" I keep looking at that cover because our lives have been exploding a bit the last few months. I'm so grateful to be able to sew, knit and play the piano for my therapy! Sew on, Ginger Monkey!! You are greatly loved and admired.

Respect! Take back YOUR life! Relax and have fun! Hope to see you in awhile!!!

Heidi Staples said...

We'll miss you on here, but it's a good decision. Sometimes you have to trim things down to get the fun back in life. Good luck!

DreiPunkteWerk said...

Take care :-)
I think Instagram is a private Account?
Best regards,
Kathrin

leanne said...

Bobbi D. said...

We will miss you for sure but i completely understand your need to take the time for yourself. Good luck and best wishes for this new phase of your life.

Jacqueline Frances said...

Hi there Katy,
I can't say I'm surprised as you have been so busy the past year…but I will miss your musings!
I just tried to find a tutorial of yours that I wanted…but there are no tutorials on your blog anymore. Where can I find them?
Thanks for all the fun!
Quilty Huggs,
Jacqueline

You have to do what you have to do. Look after yourself xxx

Linda said...

Sorry to hear we won't be reading any more of your entertaining blog posts but quite understand your reasons for pulling back on social media sites. It is time consuming and you need to be able to make the most of any spare time you have. Good luck, hope to bump into you at a Quilt Show one of these days.

barbara woods said...

we will miss you

Helen Ryan said...

You do you, lady, and may I wish you all the very, very best of luck for all the changes you're in the midst of. Get sewing!! :D

Ramona said...

Personally, I can totally understand. Blogging can be a fulltime job if you let it be. Thanks so much for the inspiration you've provided in the past and I'll definitely continue to watch on Instagram for the fun things you are creating. Enjoy life and be well. I'm really looking forward to meeting you at Glamp Stitchalot in November!

Nikki said...

Best of luck in your new endeavors. Thank you for all the inspiration.

Elsa said...

Totally understandable ~ wishing you the best in whatever it is you'll be doing! I've really enjoyed your blog and I do follow you on Instagram!

Birlot said...

Take care of yourself. I just used one of your fabrics as a binding and was reflecting how talented you are. I hope you find time for the sewing.

dolores said...

All the best kiddo...think of it as a new adventure!!:)

B DeGayner said...

I will see you on IG and hope all of your changes bring you to a better-feeling place. You are a magnificently talented person and I wish you the best!

Leanne said...

I am sure hoping that you will be happy and comfortable, however you organize your social media connections. I will check you out on instagram, it is harder because you are so many time zones away.

Valerie said...

Completely understand! Wishing you all the best!

Michelle said...

I shall miss your blog. But good luck with getting the balance back! It's so important xoxo

Deb said...

I hope you aren't going to make it vanish, cause I'm always referring to your tutorials!! Best of luck though for the future, I'm doing exactly the same thing as you right now (except after 22 years) and I wish you all the very bestest. Lots of love and hugs xoxoxoxox

Wishing you the best. Hope to see you in Pasadena next year.

Josie McRazie said...

You will be greatly missed!! Thanks for being a little different and showing peeps that you don't have to fit into the norm to be in this business! From one crazy tattooed quilter to another!!! (However in my Midwest part of the States my peeps still look a little sideways a me!!)

Sandy said...

Take care...does that mean Instagram too :)

Julie said...

Try to enjoy your next phase in life. I will miss you here, but fully understand. We could all take a lesson in this. All of life's blessings to you and your's.

Maureen T. said...

We will miss your presence terribly, but completely understand the life's balance issue!! Your blog is what rekindled my interest in quilting and I will be forever grateful to you for that. You deserve nothing but the best and much happiness too!

bloominworkshop said...

Wishing you all the best, Katy! I have so enjoyed seeing all the fabulous things you have made over the years. And I hope that sewing finds it's way back into the new rhythm of your life. Hugs!

All the best for you and thank you for all the inspiration over the years! And I hope you'll soon find more time for sewing!

Puffy Fluff said...

First I would like to say all the best to you and I do hope you find more time to sew. I came across your blog from a tutorial on another website. Are all tutorials also disappearing as well?

Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!

He seeks retainers from small businesses, promising to raise big money for them. I am told: “Who did your conversion, Rabbi Artson? You obviously do not know how Orthodox Jews use the bankruptcy process.”

The next time someone tells you that, run. Orthodox Jews in the world today are no more likely to be ethical and upstanding in business than pagan black plumbers who snort coke and swing on weekends.

A key part of Antony’s pitch to borrow money is telling people, “I’m an Orthodox rabbi. You can trust me.”
