I think it's time.

This world of blogging is fantastic, isn't it?
In fact, it's been even more fantastic than I thought it would be.
Blogging has been good to me—really good to me.
I've met amazing people, and learned amazing things. And I'm not just saying that.
But, I think it's time to say goodbye to Made Sweet.

But what is this? A eulogy?

I simply think it's time to focus on graduation and finishing school.
I have ever so much to do.
I'll probably come back to blogging someday. And by probably, I mean almost definitely.
Except with a new blog. Someday. I'll let you know when that happens.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your wonderful comments, and for reading. Made Sweet has been fun. Happy blogging!!

(if you wanted to buy a copy of the love, love me do print but never got the chance, send me an email! You can still contact me at madesweet@gmail.com)

  7. AAAAAH! WHAT IS THIS? and you didn't even consult me about it? sheesh. i have NOT been waiting for this post.

    but you know, it's cool. you're probably the only one to do this. to take a blogging hiatus but come back with a totally different blog. i've seen both, but never together.

    sure will miss this but thankfully i'll have your focusing influence by my side as i push myself to finish school too!

    Congratulations on the new focus. It is always nice to re-evaluate and set new goals. That being said, I will truly miss your blog- it is the only one that I check regularly. In fact, I check it so often that it is on my most visited list.

    The only other reason I am sad is because I feel like this is the only way I keep in touch with you even though it isn't really communicating. I guess that means we will have to get together sometime soon!

  12. All your creative juices need to be flowing in one direction right now. And you have chosen the better part. Some day I can imagine walking into a classy little shop somewhere and picking up a perfectly adorable item and seeing the label "Made Sweet" by Michelle. And I will buy one.

  14. I've kind of hit the end of the road for blogging too---but I'm keeping mine up in case I change my mind.

  21. I just had the urge to look at this...you know how it goes. late at night, distracting blogs. Anyways it really made me sad! Especially because my itunes is on shuffle and it's playing this really depressing song while I read your eulogy. *sniff* I miss your blog!
