Inspiration Abounds, and Well, Change Is Good
I love blogging. Blogging is my hobby. Blogging is so much a part of my life that I can't imagine my life without it. I blog here, on Art, Like Bread.
I blog there (at Crochet Spot). I've blogged over there (for Sheep Thrills), and I even blog there (for the Crochet Guild of America). Before that I blogged on MySpace-remember? ha! And now I'm starting a new thing. I'm blogging education (way over here). I had been struggling about how to integrate education talk into Art, Like Bread, and found that it doesn't fully fit in just yet. Although education is me - through and through - it is not really what you've come to expect from Art, Like Bread.
I love the creativity of making lesson plans and the collaboration between class and teacher. Teaching is infinitely rewarding and inspiring. I adore teaching and above all, I respect and honor my students. Now some of them are grown and I have seen them do incredible things. The sense of pride I feel for them is beyond compare. While I am still connected to education, my part time work as a tutor has not been enough to satisfy that part of my identity and purpose. Therefore I am slowing down the crafting and craft blogging in order to focus upon finding more meaningful education work locally in Broward County, FL.
I will by no means stop my crafting. But I probably won't be sharing as much of it with you. I'll be taking time off from Crochet Spot. My blogging contract with Sheep Thrills has ended. I will continue my monthly commitment with CGOA. And whatever lands here on Art, Like Bread will be here for you to enjoy. I hope you will keep in touch, and thank you.
