Hi everyone!

As ever, it's been quite a while since the last time I've posted. I'm amazed, despite the radio silence, I've still gained a few followers over the past months, and the number of views of my one video and followers of my Youtube channel just keep rising. Thanks to all of you for being patient and for believing that one day I would come back to this blog!

Also, food for thought, The Stingy Stitcher is already more than two years old! Hooray!

As far as an update on my life, I have begun my second year of medical school. Now that classes are no longer graded pass/fail, and the sheer amount of information has increased by so much, I've tried to put a lot more focus on my studies.

In fact, I've been trying to turn around a lot of things in my life recently. I have to-do lists everywhere reminding me of what I need to do, ranging from remembering to do the dishes to taking care of the handwashing to cleaning out my email inbox. Here is just a sampling of the things I've been trying to address in life:
  1. Maintain a budget
  2. Daily studying regimen
  3. Cooking as often as possible
  4. Keeping my room clean (you have no idea how difficult this is for me)
  5. Keep crafting!
  6. Updating my blog
Aha! Did you catch that? Essentially, as an exercise in responsibility, I am committing to updating this blog every day of November! Woo-hoo! Super-exciting, right?

Obviously, I can't promise every single post will be an in-depth tutorial or some kind of "Ta-da, I finished another project" type of post. Some might just be a collection of photos of my many WIPs, or collections of my inspirations. Some may have nothing to do with crafting at all. The purpose of this is for me to practice a little accountability.

I hope you guys join me in this step toward (maybe) becoming a little more mature, and I hope you enjoy it. I'm around that age when I really need to start acting like an adult. Or at least pretending I am one. ;)

See you soon!

  1. I'm 31 and I still have a hard time pretending to be an adult. I look around and think, "When did I get all of this stuff?"
