Back from Blog Vacation

That's right, I'm back!!

Blogging isn't what it used to be. So much competition. Facebook, Ravelry, iphone apps -- they all take up lots of time and are lots of fun.

I started blogging as a means to document my knitting and my life (somewhat) and the above things have pretty much done that for me with, lets face it, less effort. Blogger is a pain, the uploading and editing, etc. When you can take a photo with your phone and instantly send it to facebook or Ravelry, it seems like a lot of duplication of effort to do it here too.

So I decided not to stop blogging, but to take a blog break and see. After a few months of that, I think I miss it. So here I am. I decided that personal stuff will continue on facebook since folks I know keep up with me and my family there. But the knitting...even though I update Ravelry pretty faithfully, I don't really get to talk about it much there. And the crafting - I have been feeling the "itch" to do other sorts of crafting, and that isn't documented anywhere!

So Yarn Paper Scissors will continue as my adventures in knitting and crafting. My posting may be sporadic, as is my knitting and crafting life due to family and time constraints. I may only have 2 readers, but hey, that's okay.

If you are still reading at this point, look soon for new posts of what I've been up to since the new year began, and maybe a freshening up of the blog look.

It's good to be back.

I am glad you are back. I enjoy reading about what you are doing although I witness it pretty frequently. I am also lucky enough to be the recepient of some of the beautiful things you make. Keep up the good work!!

Hello! Its nice to see you back. I like blogging, in fact I deleted my facebook and twitter accounts because they weren't nearly as interesting!! (and I didn't really get twitter!)

Yeah! I'm glad you're back too. I just don't "get" facebook...maybe I'm not doing it right...maybe I need a class!!
