A new chapter for Growing Spaces

Thumbs up | Growing Spaces

The summer break is over, and as the twins head off to start school I’m ready to put my creative hat back on and get back to blogging. But there’s been something I’ve been mulling over for a while, and I’ve finally come to a decision. I’ve been writing over at Young & Younger about our family life since 2009, and about interiors here since 2011, and it’s time to admit that I can’t do both. I don’t have enough time to keep up with two blogs, and I think both suffer as a result.

And so I’ve chosen to close up shop at Young & Younger, and focus on blogging here. I’ll still be blogging about family-friendly interiors and home-related craft and makeover projects, but there’ll also be posts about family life and kids’ crafts and activities. I’ve also enjoyed dipping into some travel and food posts, and I plan to write about whatever piques my interest, though the focus will always be interiors, because that’s what I’m thinking about most of the time. I’m aiming to unite the two halves of my life (family and work) in a single lifestyle blog, and the start of a new academic year seems like a pretty good time to take the leap.

So welcome to new readers joining me from Young & Younger, and thanks to Growing Spaces readers for sticking with me when posts here have been few and far between. I’m really excited about getting my teeth back into blogging and can’t wait to get started afresh.

    Great news! Personally I prefer a blog that is a mixture and I also think it is incredibly hard to run two at the same time. Looking forward to your future posts!
