Blog Comment Changes & More Crafty Snaps

What the “craft bench” looks like right now.

Someone asked me what my craft area looks like, and, you’re kinda looking at it. I live in a loft, so there are no separate rooms for organization. I basically take over the living room. I have yarn stash in one corner, photo lights in another corner, and some crafty supplies in another corner. I like to sit on the floor and work, so I’m usually on the living room rug, leaning against the couch. If I have to lay out my work, I use the skinny table/bench behind the couch.

My official craft table is a bit of a wreck right now. I usually don’t work at it unless I’m doing something with beads. Otherwise, it’s storage and a place to put crap down!

In more administrative news, you may notice a change in the way comments/replies work on my blog. I really wanted you guys to be notified if I or someone else reply to your comments here. If I leave a comment on someone’s blog, I usually won’t check back on that entry to see if I got a response. I just won’t remember. So I like when I get notified if someone replies to me. That is why I made that change here.

Hairy told me that without notifications, commenters are encouraged to return to the page to see if they got a response, which would increase your site traffic numbers(?). I understand that from a numbers standpoint, but from a user’s standpoint, I’m personally just not going to check back!

So if you hate this change, I can also give you the option of deciding whether or not you get a reply message. But I like it this way because I feel it creates more of a dialogue between you and me (and others), and that’s what I feel that blogging is about, at least for myself, at this moment in time. With blogger, I can check a box to get a notification or not, but sometimes I forget to check the box! So I like the default. Let me know your thoughts.

Anyhoo, today I decided to curl my bangs under! It looked better before I brushed them out. I prefered it a bit piece-y, since I curled them in three sections. Oh well! Now I know for next time! Finger-brush, not brush-brush!

Last night, Hairy made pho!

I think it’s exciting we also get the dish of greens n things just like at a restaurant!

Now I’m going back to sewing pepperonis onto pizzas!!!

    OMG! I love Pho! I’m on the hunt for my creating own batch. It’s a bit hard when the resources out here are scarce. Cute Bangs to btw.

    • Hairy uses something pre-made to make the broth. I’ll see if I can dig it up and take a pic for everybody! Aside from that, all you need is noodles and whatever other toppings you want to put on there!

    Good points all round about your changes on comments, will look into it myself.
    Fringe looks cute by the way.

    • Thank you! I feel like I should have used a round brush and a blowdryer instead. I kept fearing I would burn my face! Hahah.

    I am new to you and your blog (why yes I do live under a rock) so it will be basically no change to me but I like getting a notification if someone replies! I think people do sometimes check back but it makes it feel kinda special to get an email that is all “Oh look someone replied to you.”

    I enjoy seeing pictures of people’s crafty spaces as well, partly because I live in a pretty tiny apartment so it helps to get ideas from people. I don’t have the luxury of having a whole room to myself. It is nice to see people who do things in a similar way.

    • I feel like I am really bad at organizing stuff and planning out space, so seeing how other people do it is really helpful to me!
