This winter will bring a lot of temporary changes in my life and on the blog.

 For starters, I'm going back to work part time until the spring. Although I prefer to be home with my kids, I think it will be good to get out of the house a few evenings per week when it's too cold and crummy to do anything exciting. I always enjoyed my "day job", especially last winter when I  needed a distraction from the dreaded winter blues. I generally blog during the early morning anyway so I don't think I'll be blogging any less and a change of scenery throughout the week will be much-appreciated.

Also, I finally bought a tripod and remote so I can take all of my own blog photos. Pj is a wonderful photographer and so patient with me but with the decent lighting being so poorly timed in the winter, I thought it would be a good plan to do my own during the daytime.These are my first outfit photos that I took with the tripod and remote system. It will take some practice but so far, I'm loving being able to take as many as I like and not drag poor Pj out into the cold.

While I'm not blogging, there will be a lot of crafts with the kids, catching up on housework, less time at home and a lot of other crazy holiday-related happenings going on. By spring, I think everything will be back to normal with the warm weather, fun things to do and return to stay at home mom status. I'm planning monthly trips to mom's house in the country this winter, which I'm really looking forward to!

I hope to still make a lot of time for all kinds of fun sewing projects this winter. I'm truly happy when I sew, and of course, knitting till my eyes can't focus anymore! I also have a second ecourse in the works (I need to finish my first!!) , which I hope to finish around February or March but we'll see how the new winter schedule works out. Like most of my projects, it may come later than expected!

Since I will have less time for my beloved DIY and tutorials posts, there will be a return to style inspiration and daily outfit posts, which I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
