The End (of this blog)

This is my 618th post.

I started this blog as a way to promote my shop, and as a creative outlet for myself. But for the past several months, it has just felt like one more obligation and responsibility. I've tried to scale back and not post every day, but I couldn't shake off the feeling that I was somehow obligated to. Somewhere along the line, it stopped being as fun!

In this new season of life, trying to juggle between being a good teacher and being a good mom, I find that my priorities have shifted away from my shop and this blog.

So.... it is with bitter-sweet feelings that I'm ending this blog.

Not to worry though! You can still follow me on Twitter! And I have another blog that my husband and I update sporadically to keep in touch with our friends and family. If you'd like the URL, just shoot me a quick email (sarah at yesteachercrafts dot com)

I've really enjoyed this blogging journey with you all! I will continue to cherish the connections and community that I've made here. Thank you to my faithful supporters/commenters (you know who you are!) for your friendship!
