We are already over a month into 2018, but it’s not too late to start fresh, right? I’m so excited to tell you what I’ve been up to! It’s a new year and I’m here to share the new content, new look and my NEW BLOG!
Over the past eight years I have occupied a corner of the internet sharing my sewing tutorials, fabrics, sewing patterns, my BOOK, and more. If you’ve been around for a long time you know I started my blog when I was still in college. You saw me through college graduation, engagement, marriage, being newlyweds, jobs, and babies. It has been SUCH fun journey.
I shared about it a little on Instagram last month, but over the past 18 months or so, I’ve felt a shift in my passions. Sewing will always hold a very special place in my heart, but it is not something I am passionate about any more. Honestly, it makes me sad that I don’t love it like I used to. I remember (literally) dreaming about sewing when I was in the thick of it.. Nothing could stop me from staying up to the weeee hours of the morning to complete a project. Or to buy way too much fabric for a single garment (or with no project in mind! ha!). Until one day it didn’t light my fire anymore. I started feeling this nudge while I was pregnant with Tinsley, but brushed it off as hormones. Unfortunately, those feelings continued after she was born.
I’ve struggled on what to post and how to say it because I feel like I’m letting a huge tribe of friends down. The things I want to write about and share with you all don’t have anything to do with sewing, so I have felt it isn’t my place to share. I have an amazing community of followers and friends who I want to continue along with me! But self-doubt keeps creeping in. What if.. They hate me? They don’t care? I am wasting my time? The truth is, all of those things may be true.
But here is the thing: I have so many topics swimming in my head that I want to write about and I have a place I have built to do that. So I have decided to go for it. And I TRULY hope you stick around to hang out with me!
What can you expect from this space now?
Topics you can expect to see on my blog include: fashion, beauty, family, kids and of course a bit of sewing thrown in here and there. I am excited to share my favorite brands, sales, beauty hacks, and more with all of you guys. I want to build a community of women who want to empower one another to do what they’re called to do. Whether that be running your household or your dream job (or both ;)), I hope CarolineHulse.com is a place you can find inspiration, budget friendly products and encouragement.
I love you guys + am so thankful for each of you!
Don’t miss this!
