Hiding behind the pretty pictures and quick blurbs of my crafting pages, I made a choice a couple years ago to start stepping back from personal social media and it has been an absolutely life changing experience. Now when I run in to someone I haven’t seen in a while there is such a gratifying and exciting exchange, moments of discovery and joy. I also feel less pressure to be on display, to constantly have something interesting to show or tell. Still however, I feel the disconnect even with all the positives. I thrive in my solitude yet crave the delight in sharing my creations.
I’m setting out to find the balance of that virtual connection and give you a glimpse into my process, my spaces, my successes and failed projects alike. Welcome to the Hammerthreads blog, I’m Ashley, and I look forward to sharing my journey with you all.
