I can hardly believe that 2018 has come and gone already. I have been mostly absent since early last year, checking in only once in a while to share something. I'm hoping that in 2019 I find myself back in blogging and crafting mode. I have set a few goals for myself, and I'm trying to start the new year off on the right foot (not by standing on my right foot at midnight last night, as suggested by a Facebook meme, either).
Another two weeks, and here I am again, still trying to get back on a regular schedule, and not quite there...but getting a little closer. My crafty mojo took a hike a few months ago, and I've been struggling, trying to get it back. There are so many things I want to do, and I still can't seem to find the motivation to do any of them. Or I just feel so overwhelmed because there are so many things I want to do that I end up not doing any of them. This past week or so has been the first time in a long time that I've actually done a bit of crafting. I started on a blanket for my cousin's dog, and I pulled out my sewing machine. I'm looking forward to sharing what I've been making, and hoping that I can continue to make some progress.
Wow! I can hardly believe it's been almost two months since I last posted! I want to apologize to everyone for just disappearing, and to all of you whose blogs I normally read and have been neglecting lately. I know I've mentioned in my last few posts (which were already becoming infrequent) that I was having a hard time staying motivated to write, and it appears that although I thought I was getting my groove back, I was wrong.
This past weekend was the Romancing the Capital book conference here in Ottawa. This was the fourth year for the conference, and I'm very happy to say that the organizer, Eve Langlais, is planning on doing another in 2019! Yay! As you may have guessed, this conference focuses on romance novels in all forms from sweet to well, basically whatever you can think of. This was my third year attending, and the second year in which my friend, Dianne, attended with me...and we are planning on attending next year as well, and maybe dragging along another friend or two.
Any of you who were following my blog last year at about this time, may remember that I attended Romancing the Capital (RTC), a reader and author get together in Ottawa (Kanata to be exact), and it's coming up this week! I'm so excited! The format is slightly different this year, in that there will only be a dinner/dance on Friday night, rather than one on both Friday and Saturday nights, but I'm thrilled that the theme for this year is a masquerade ball.
