A New Beginning...

When I started blogging way back in January of 2007, I was a stay at home mom of two, at the beginning of a creative journey. The Modern June and Oilcloth Addict blogs took me down roads I never thought possible. After running a great handmade business and writing two sewing books, I’m ready for a new start. I’ve started a new blog on the Wordpress platform, and I trying to find my creative voice again.

Running a creative business can take it’s toll on a creative person when it becomes all about money and management. At some point, I started to feel like I had nothing more to say to the world,  so I stopped blogging. Then my family went through a really rough patch and I became very tired and worn. As a result I decided to take a break from the handmade side of my company, and I let my staff go and I stopped making tablecloths and the other Modern June goodies. Since the end of September I’ve been working through my burn out recovery. It’s required a lot of Hulu, family fun and many, many pajama days. Thankfully, I started feeling my like my old crafty self again in December.

Please join me at as I craft, sew and DIY myself silly. My Modern June (1297 posts) and Oilcloth Addict blogs will stay around as an archive and resource for us both. I still sell fabric, books and patterns at and I’ll still the Oilcloth Addict on Etsy.

Here’s to a new journey for me and Modern June!!
