Weekend at the Lake; Plans for Embercostumes

Poor Lilly broke her leg on the 4th of July at my house when she fell off of my porch. It was only a 6 inch step! Rosemary hung out with her on the kayak and in the wagon. 

I just wanted to take a minute and talk about my plans and goals for this blog. Embercostumes started out as a website with the blog on the side, but the website was difficult to maintain and eventually I stopped updating both. (Though neither John nor I stopped crafting and making things!) When I decided to come back to Embercostumes, I thought it best to archive the website and just focus on blogging about our sewing and crafting--but there is a lot of content on that website that I'd like to share. Old costumes, tutorials, articles, etc. I'd like to share those on the blog too as well as new stuff. I've also considered blogging a little bit more about real-life stuff on the blog too, but not quite into the realm of the mommy blogger. While I love reading mommyblogs, that's not what I have in mind for Embercostumes.

 I've been posting pretty much weekly for a few months now and I want to continue doing that! But my posts will probably range a lot more and not just be finished projects. I'd love to share patterns, tutorials, and even real-life updates.

I would also like to give the blog a bit of a makeover soon appearance-wise and to add some functions like a project gallery and an Instagram feed. There are plans in the works to make some of our own Youtube videos too!

We have an exciting year coming up for Embecostumes! I hope that all our readers enjoy what's coming!

Jack caught a minnow in the lake with a net! We released it back into the wild at the end of the day.
