The time has come to bid adieu to the Idle Wife blog. I know, I know. I said it a million times that the inspiration would come again. "Soon," I said, "I'll have the energy to come up with another brilliant DIY project! Soon! Soon!"

I can't even say I'll have the desire to share fixations or desktop backgrounds with you again. I'm still very much active on the internet. It's not like I don't have the time for it. I just don't want to right now.

The DIY and home improvement blogs I used to draw a lot of inspiration from have become more about sponsorships, book deals, and having a team of crafters at your disposal, and I feel like everything has gotten extremely monotonous. I don't want to be just another blog with the same project in a different colour (and I definitely don't want to take my one successful project and continue using it as the starting point for every subsequent project on my blog). So since I feel as though there's nothing more I can add to this party, the time has come for me to go.

At any rate, I'm not going to shut the blog doors completely. This site will remain long after I'm gone and if you still have a question or problem about the bath bombs or... well that's the only one you all care about, I will receive notifications and I'll reply as quickly as I can. 

You can still find me Pinning feverishly, but Facebook and Twitter will be silent.

Thank you for reading this humble blog and taking an interest in the stuff that I made. I had a fun ride!
