Why the name change? When I started blogging back in December of 2009, "Scrapping Daze" was the perfect name for my new blog. After all, I was caught in the vortex of a major scrappy addiction. ;) Most days I was walking around in some kind of a scrapping daze thinking about my next LO, hence the name. This was my spot to share all of my creations and everything scrappy. As time went on and I became more comfortable with blogging, I also started sharing random bits of my everyday life. I love that I can look at old blog posts and remember what was going on back then. And of course, I have shared anything else crafty that I have been up to...... knitting, crocheting, cross- stitching, reading and even thrifty finds. Over the past year, I haven't been scrapping as much and so I seem to be sharing more of these other interests. Suddenly, my blog name wasn't really fitting what my blog is really all about.
I'm a person who is usually on a tangent. Rob can often be heard saying, "Oh, there she goes on another tangent." I get going on a project and that is what I am going to eat, sleep and breathe for awhile. Sleep can even be lost, as I think of ideas for my latest tangent into the wee hours of the morning. ;) Eventually I will tire and put this activity away for some time and pick something else up. The name, "On a Tangent" seems like a better representation of what my blog is all about. After all, I am really just sharing what my latest tangent is. LOL
The January tangent was knitting hats. I am ready to put hat making on hold for a bit now. I think I knit a total of 17. A good start to this years knitting for charity. Here are the last two. One for a girl and the yellow one could be worn by either a girl or boy.
