I guess starting my site over really killed any drive I had to keep it updated, but if I don’t use it, it’s a waste of money. So I am going to start using it again (I hope). I haven’t been sewing a lot lately because a lot of things have happened, but I’ve taken up a new hobby. I’ve started dabbling in doll customizing, specifically Monster High and Ever After High. I haven’t done much so there isn’t much to show yet, but I’ll start taking progress shots. I’m also going to try to just post whatever, even if I think no one cares. Because let’s be honest, no one read this site before it was dormant for years. There’s no one left to impress! I’ll just be over here, doing my thing and talking to myself.

I’ve been busy like a bee sewing things for Christmas and I still have so much to do, I feel like it’ll never get done. It’s my own fault, though. I sort of got distracted earlier in the month because I got my Christmas present early from my husband. It’s a 3DS XL (a limited edition pink and white one!) and a few games. All month long has been such a struggle because I know I’m supposed to be sewing but then I look over at it and I can hear Professor Layton saying, “Perhaps a puzzle might be just the thing you need to refresh you. Surely you have time for just one.” in his charming accent and then one turns into a dozen or so and I’ve lost all motivation to be productive.

Worse than that, though, is that I have just taken the plunge on the Dragon Quest series. Despite being a fan of RPGs for nearly my whole life (that’s nearly 30 years for those keeping score), I never gave Dragon Warrior/Quest a chance. So I’m 12 hours into Dragon Quest IV DS and my productivity has evaporated entirely. I’ve always identified as a Final Fantasy fan up until XI or so and have been lamenting the death of the traditional RPG since then. Apparently, Dragon Quest is everything that I wished Final Fantasy had been for these long years and it was right there under my nose this whole time. I just have to make sure I wrap it up by the time Etrian Odyssey 4 comes out.

Despite the resurgence of my video game obsession, I’m still getting some stuff done. Just not that much and I’m having to rush it much more than I would have otherwise. But look for pictures of super hero dress up clothes and a mini messenger bag in the coming days. And maybe a stuffed bear. I am definitely going to sew things.

So there was a little mix up with my web hosting (entirely my fault) and long story short, I don’t know how to import my old posts since I failed to get a backup through WordPress. I had wanted to start over fresh at some point anyway so I guess now’s a fine time. Please excuse the barren wasteland I now call a site, but I hope to get it back in order soon.
