I'm Leaving Facebook

Both my personal and my business page are going to be deleted soon. I am claiming back my free time. I can't even begin to think how much time I have wasted on that website. Aside from the many privacy violations I would just rather be using my time productively. I want to make things. My friends have other ways of contacting me, and there are other ways for me to keep in contact with the business pages I liked. Such as:

  • RSS feed their website. Whether it's news or new items I have set up my Google home page to have RSS feeds from my favorite news and merchandise sites so I can see their latest updates without visiting their website.
  • I can sign up for their email newsletters so I can keep up to date when I'm busy with other things.
  • I can spend the hours I was on Facebook [to] visiting their website on a weekly basis just to check in and browse.
For the __1337 Art fans there are several ways you can stay in touch:

  1. Deviant Art
  2. Flickr
  3. Twitter
  4. Email Newsletter
  5. Website
  6. Tumblr (new!)
  7. RSS my Arfire Shop
  8. ESS my Etsy Shop
  9. Email
Another great thing about this change is that I can spend more time updating this blog! I have plans to start including Work in Progress Wednesdays where I show off what I am working on at the moment, I want to start doing Artist Features again where I post an interview of a great artist and a few pictures of their work, and I want to show off my studio craft room a bit and provide some general tips for organization, stuff around the house, etc. And post more green/organic/natural things. So there are many things coming soon.

Don't forget you can sign up to receive my blog updates in your inbox. Just find the box on the right side of this page.

Thank you so much for reading. I look forward to blogging again soon.

Quick Update.

So we moved, and the new house is amazing even though we have found a lot of quirks and odd little details, but that is just how it is with lived in houses. We still love it. I took a few "before" pictures of my craft room, and if I ever feel that I reach an "after" point I'll take some pictures of that too and write a post with them. The room is a little smaller than my old one, but I think that is a good thing. Things in this room so far are closer, and I don't feel so microscopic when I'm sitting in it alone.

At first I was set on lime green walls, but after much thought (irregardless of my husband's 'No! I don't want that ugly color in this house!' comments) I decided on grey. It won't be painted for some time, but when we do get around to painting the color won't be too dark as to affect my jewelry photo shoots in a negative way, and it has way more personality than dirty white walls. White walls are so boring and uninspired.
