Have ya noticed?  There’s a distinct lack of craft on any Drewzelblog right now.  I first started my blog in early 2006, just for fun.  I was a crap blogger, I hardly posted, didn’t read anyone else’s much and didn’t really care.  Then I got really. involved. in. crafting. stuff.  Good ol’ craft as therapy.  So as I made stuff, I put pics on Flickr, wrote blog posts about it.  But now I feel like I done a circle and I’m back to non-crafting posts again.  Not because I don’t love craft or don’t make stuff.  Because I’m still going strong.  But it’s become so ingrained and a part of what I do with my time, that I don’t even consider it remarkable any more.  Does this mean the novelty has worn off?  Or have I achieved Granny craftdom, where all my friends and family know it’s just something I do, like the gardening, or cuddling doggies?  Super-creative types might think I’m stagnating, and not pushing myself to achieve more.  But I can say, that with my various exploits (thanks Pip for giving my bags a go, thanks Leeloo for believing in a Bird Mad Girl) I’m in a happy crafting place.  And I think that’s quite remarkable.

    I know what you mean… I have been forcing myself to take photos of things recently – it’s become a part of who I am. Thanks for your great blog anyway!

    I don’t worry about the lack of craftiness on this blog….I think it’s hilarious what you come up with and what you write about…..I have to put craft on my blog cos there’s nothing else interesting to write about!
