It would be such a shame to call it quits now but im just not feeling it.
need some time to contemplate on if i want to resume this blogging journey.
almost feels like a chapter wants to close but im swimming upstream to keep it open.
my energy wants to be directed elsewhere.

I want to make decisions that are life enhancing but lately blogging doesnt feel that way. so much effort goes into my posts and lately i question if its worth it. I have lots to share but I feel stuck in this space. Am I outgrowing my blog?

Perhaps this is only an impulse. Perhaps it is not.

Either way, Im going down that rabbit hole so catch me if you can.

Toodles for now.


  1. Please don't stop! i've been following your blog for years (literally) since i stumbled upon your site on calgary planet/ like highschool?
    (though this is the first time i've ever posted :P)

    I was hoping that i'd see more of your clothing creations which you use to post. But i enjoy all the pretty, whimsical pictures you post now. We all need a daily dose of inspiration!

    I will check into the heat/fire for my digestion...cuz lately it's been really bad.

  2. Me too. Don't stop. :(

    I got insanely busy at one point and blogging dropped to the bottom of my priority list but now that I'm finally getting back into it, I forgot how therapeutic it is.

  3. I do think You should take a break if you are not into it. You will never need to force yourself to do something that you enjoy. Afterall, You can always come back. Until then.

    1. You are right. You can't force open a flower bud or a cocoon. There's always a time and place for everything. Just wanted to say thanks for your positive comment. It's nice to be reminded that there's no point in forcing things.

  4. I would be terribly sad if you stopped blogging hun because I have always enjoyed reading your blog. Thanks to your blog, I have found a friend on the other side of the world but who I can relate to in many ways.
    On the other hand, I would also understand and respect your decision if you were to stop blogging because I know that you will find something else to put your creative energy into. Perhaps something even more inspiring and amazing!

    I also wanted to thank you for your gift, I received it in the mail a couple of days ago! :) Unfortunately though, the CD you composed for me was in pieces when I opened the package and I was so disappointed and sad. :(

    I will be putting together a small package for you and sending it to you very soon!

    I'm sure you'll do what feels right for you and I hope it doesn't mean that we'll lose contact if you do decide to stop blogging.

    Take care babe and ttys!

    Lots of luv Lig xOx

    1. You've always been such an amazing friend. You always know what to say so thx for having my back. At that point I was thinking of blogging more as a chore. It lost its enjoyment. Luckily I've refreshed my perspective on it so we'll see how it goes =)

      As for the gift....ahh *sad face* I wonder what do these postal workers do? It says CD right on it. that means its FRAGILE. grrr. sorry about that. =(

  5. I've noticed that your posting is very sporadic, and I think this may be the problem you are facing. You usually only update twice a month or so, were you losing your steam a long time ago?
    You don't realize that your blog IS a big inspiration, and many people love reading it. Just wish you posted more and put more effort in! I'm sure a lot of people would be sad if you stopped posting all together .....

  6. NOooooooo! Dun call it quits!

    I understand how much time and effort blogging takes though so yeah, you have to weigh and see if it's really a prudent choice to stop blogging. Though I know I would miss your posts a lot!

  7. It's sad to hear you are considering stopping your blogging. I've been following for years and how much you loved what you did always came across in your posts, be it your fashion design or graphic design.

    How you constantly seek to better yourself as a person and designer was an inspiration to me and I'm sure helped many other people follow their dreams as well.

    If you have outgrown blogging I just hope you continue to do what makes your happy in your future endeavors.

    1. you have no idea what it means to me for you to take the time and write me this comment. my reply has been over due so i dont know if you'll be checking this. i really hope you get a chance to tho. there were a few things that contributed to my diminishing interest in blogging and i believe one of the big factors was that i lost perspective. I needed to get back into myself and express from the inside out - not outside in. its hard to produce things when you pressure yourself to do it for the heck of doing it. I had to find my heart again and I believe I have.

      thank you for your support and understanding. forever grateful!

  8. Emily! AA and CP?? wow that was a decade ago. I bet that dates me doesnt it? hehe. I started when i was 16-17 ish. Well I want to say thanks for sending me your love. It really does mean a lot to me and I take these comments to heart. I think I just need a little break from blogging.

    ps: try digestive enzymes. they come in pill form. or else add more spice to your meals.

  9. hey katy. life gets busy and too interesting that lately i feel too overwhelmed to blog. yes i agree that blogging is quite therapeutic. i just seem to have forgotten so like u did before. glad to hear that you're getting back into it tho. i think we met each other during our peak =)


hi luv. speak your mind...whisper your secrets...kiss your words as you blow them into my ears
