I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer full of relaxation, sun and fun!
I know this blog is a quiet, quiet place but I still have every intention of spending more time here someday soon. I'm still sewing all the time, but I'm not a blogger that can handle my busy family and blogging. Now that the kids are bigger there always seems like so much to do. I go to bed each day feeling even more behind on the mental list I have going than I was the day before. :)
I just wanted to pop in and answer a question I am getting A LOT in my email. If you have emailed me this question without a response, I'm sorry. There have just been so many of them I've given up on replying to each one individually (I was for awhile). Also, if you've emailed and haven't heard a response from me, I don't check my blog email each day now that I don't blog often. When I do check it I try to get back to the folks with sewing issues first!
Ok, the question. Why can't I pin your tutorials?! Thank you to those of you who have asked this politely! :) To be honest, a few people have been quite rude about it.
I understand in this new Pinterest obsession this could be quite frustrating. I hear you. And, I thank you for liking a tutorial enough that you want to pin it! Right now though I have decided not to allow pinning on this blog. Mainly because of my own neurotic reasons that may not make sense to many, but this is what I've decided none the less. I know I put the content out there to begin with, so I should be ok with my stuff being pinned all over the place, right? Well, maybe I should be, but I'm not. I'm happy with this cozy little corner of the internet. For those who have pointed out I am losing traffic, that's ok with me. I love that you are all here and pop in from time to time, especially when I used to put so much work into this blog, but this blog is not a money maker for me. I hope that some of you will still find the tutorials here useful and will want to bookmark them!
Yes, you may find the odd project on Pinterest. Many of you learned about Pinterest and started using it far before I knew what it was all about. Projects that were pinned before are still kicking around and I don't think there is anyway I can remove them.
Anyway, that's all for now. :) Thank you for reading!
