It's time for a change...

It's been months since my last post and for that I must apologize.  I have to admit, I've been toying with the idea of stopping this blog; spending time with my family and being so busy at work, it's been a challenge to find the time to write.  

Writing doesn't come easily to me - not in the least. It takes me a good 2-3 hours per post; sometimes longer if I am sharing DIY how-to.  Add to that the pressure of posting interesting content, more often, and I starting feeling that the blog was becoming more stressful than fun.

And so I had decided to take a break from the blog for few months to think about the future of velvet toolbox.  

After careful thought, I've decided that I'm not ready to let go just yet but that the blog will need to evolve with my hectic schedule.  What that means is that I'll focus on sharing smaller bits of content - less words, more photos, videos & links. Think of it as an "enhanced" version of my Instagram.

To my loyal followers, thanks so much for your support and words of encouragement - you are the reason that this blog still exists!  I hope you all understand and enjoy velvet's new direction!

Happy New Year to one and all.  Cheers to new beginnings!
