Well, we’ve finally come to the end of this line. After 583 posts and six years, I am officially shutting down Crafter by Night. This will be my last post.
It has been a lovely blog, and I have enjoyed writing it over the years. I have enjoyed all the crafting that went into it as well. It has been fun to tweak the settings, add and subtract pages, get caught up in ideas, and sometimes just sit down and write. I’ve enjoyed all the comments I’ve received over the years, and wish I could have “met” more of you online. The people I do know through this blog are some very nice folks indeed. I really never imagined when I started it that it would stick around for nearly six years and be such an important part of my life. I am immensely grateful that I started it back in 2007, and hope that you guys have enjoyed it too.
I’m shutting it down because I don’t have the time or energy for either the subject of the blog (purportedly crafting) or for doing the blogging itself. It takes time and effort to make the posts, and these days I don’t have what it takes to get the crafting done, the pictures up and then write the words that accompany them. I’m ridiculously behind on my email box at this point, and I can’t begin to imagine where I’d get the time to blog. I know that may change in the coming months/years, but I do believe that this blog has already achieved what I wanted it to, and that its time is over. I’d rather end it now than let it drag out with sad catch-up posts coming only twice a year. So – finis.
If you are interested, I am going to continue to blog in a much simpler way (via Tumblr) over at blog.miriammuer.net, about life in general, and if I find time to craft I imagine it will land there.
In the words of the Sound of Music:
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight

I can hardly say I’ll miss you since I think I talk to you more on Twitter! But I’m glad you had this blog and participated in nablopomo so I could “meet” you

It HAS been a lovely blog. Good for you for ending it before it’s one additional burden on the “to do” list.
