Blog Hiatus - UPDATE: Umm, just kidding.

UPDATE 11/06/10!!! 
Well, it looks like I spoke too soon... I just found out yesterday that I have the opportunity to do another craft fair a week from today. I couldn't turn it down, so it looks like I'm going to have to craft like a mad woman, so back pain be darned this week. This is going to be tough, but with Christmas coming up, I can't pass up the little bit of extra income. Anyway, I guess I won't be disappearing after all.

Hey friends! As you have probably read before, my back issues have been especially oppressive lately. So I'm taking a break from my craft blog... I hope this doesn't sound nuts, but I love connecting with all you guys who read, and feel like I'm disappointing somebody, somewhere in the world when I don't have anything to share, especially after going for so long, posting a new project just about every day. Do any of you other bloggers feel any sort of imaginary obligation to blog? Even though you just do it because you love it? I dunno, maybe I'm just silly. You understand, right?

So, I won't be posting many projects very often, but when I have the stamina to hammer out a craft (I can't expect myself to NOT craft anything!), I promise I'll share it! I've got 2 swaps to finish at any rate, so there will be those projects :)

I've got an appointment with that spinal surgeon in less than two weeks, so hopefully he'll be willing to rescue me somehow. After 7 years of dealing with progressively worse pain, I've just GOT to have something done. I'll probably still keep posting on my personal blog, so if you care for an update on that front, head over.

Anyway, thank you guys so much for all of your kind words and support. I love you!
Much love,

I too feel a little nagging guilt when I don't post for a few days. I think it is just because I love doing it so much.

Sending well wishes and prayers to you and hoping this doctor will help you find some relief. Keep crafting!

I definitely understand that pressure, even if it's imaginary! Everything I cook, I think, "This must be pretty enough to blog!" Silly, yes, but there it is!

Take care of yourself, and I look forward to seeing what you're doing onwe you are well!

I hope your appointment with the spinal surgeon goes well! I was in a car accident a few years ago and broke my pelvis in 3 places, I'm in pain most of the time still. I really wish you luck, I can't imagine my whole back hurting all the time!!

I know exactly what you mean about the pressure to post often- no one ever says anything but you feel guilty if you slip. I'm so sorry to hear you're not feeling any better. =( Good luck with the meeting with the surgeon!
