new year. new things. new direction.

Hello!! And happy almost New Year!!!

If you have followed me this far in blogging you will have noticed a slight change in how things are being done around here over the last few months.  Sadly, some months ago I learned that my children were being visited here by people I don't really want "visiting" them at all, blog or not.  That put a sour taste in my mouth and I tried to carry on but over time, this blog has become more crafty and baking and less about my boys growing up.  And it's taken me this long to be OK with that.  Because it will be the last thing taken from me by those "people".  And to be clear, there are no bad intentions as far as I am aware of with the "visits" I just strongly feel, now more than ever, that my kids are no longer business for this blog.  The boys won't disappear from here all together, I will just be less generous with posting about them.  Thankfully, I still have IG, where I can monitor who comes and goes a little better.  Things grow and change, and while this blog started as a way of documenting my boys and their growth, it's slowly outgrown that task anyway, so change is good!  

My goal for the new year and this blog is simple 1:1.  1 recipe and 1 crafty tutorial per week.  Plus my randoms Jesus moments mixed in.  It will be nice to have a little structure here don't you think?  I'd love to hear any ideas and thoughts about what kind of crafty ideas you would like to see explored.  What do you want to learn?  Try? Experiment with?  I would love to hear from you and have your help in propelling this blog into 2014, making it the best year EVER!

Another aspect of my life: the hoho!  You can read all about them on their own special tab above.  I've set myself up this year for {what I am hoping} will be much less crazy making and stressless.  You see, I love to make you happy.  I love to make as many hohos for as many of you as possible.  I love to hear the stories of how hohos have made you happy and to see how far the hohos will travel, all over the world!  But the last few months I let my "waiting list" get away from me.  That caused a serious imbalance in my life and stressed me right out!

I didn't intend for that to happen, I had good intentions but I got myself in a hot mess.  I've spent the last couple of weeks trying to recover, and pray about going forward.  From here on out my waiting list will only be open for the number of working days in the month.  And that will be it.  I may revise that once both boys are in school all day in the fall.  I have a few other plans of action that I won't bore you with but my hope is for a happier hoho maker with MORE to give in 2014 and not less.  {including lots of giveaways!} 

And in the hoho department, I'd love to hear what you would like to see?  Any amazing hoho ideas you would like to see me bring to life? I'd love to hear those too!  

So there is that.  A little peek in the madness of my thinking.  Be sure to find the hohos on IG at @littlebitfunkyhohos and use the hash tag #lbfhohos when sharing photos of your hoho adventures!

Love you guys and thankful for you!  xo
