Good Afternoon, Good Evening and Good Night

I've been thinking a lot about how to write this post. What words to say, how to express myself appropriately and here's what I've come up with.

I got a full-time job. Yup. An 8-5, Monday through Friday, gig as a content writer for TopTenREVIEWS. You may remember some of my previous posts about other reviews I've written for them. I start Tuesday. A couple weeks ago they called me out-of-the-blue and offered me a full-time position. I couldn't believe it myself, but I said yes. We'll see if I've been a SAHM too long for it to truly stick, but I'm excited for the change in my life path.

What this means for The How-To Gal? Most likely less posts and less projects for me. I've been trying to post once a day for the last little while, and now I won't have all day everyday to scheme and dream of different projects to amuse and delight. And while I feel sad about this, I also feel somewhat relieved. The crafty-blogging world is an intense one. Many creative women all vying for the best project day after day. Party after blogging party, giveaway after's tiring!

So, if you have liked the projects I've posted in the past and my quick wit, be sure to add me to your reading list. I won't be posting everyday, but I will still be dropping in once and awhile.

Thank you for the fun times everyone!
