Today we’re here to share a bittersweet blog update, which is that this will be our last post at Plaster & Disaster for the foreseeable future. The “bitter” part is pretty obvious: we dreamed up this blog together about four years ago, and it’s brought us a lot of joy to collaborate on it and share it with you. We hope that whether you’ve read 1 post, all 456 we’ve ever written, or somewhere in between, it’s brought you joy too.
There’s the “sweet” part, too, though, which is that our lives have changed a lot in those four years, and they’ve filled out in ways that don’t leave us the time to do this blog the way we’d want to into the future. It’s a pretty time-consuming hobby when you factor in doing and photographing the projects, editing/formatting/uploading the photos, writing the posts, and all the back-end tech elements that go into managing a website. While we’re sad to end what has been a big part of our lives, we’re excited for all the other things that will have more space, energy, and time from us. (If that sounds cryptic like maybe we’re starting a TV show or something, it’s nothing that fantastical — we mean things like other hobbies, work, dogs, quality time with growing families, spending time together that doesn’t involve making dollhouse furniture, actually doing DIY projects rather than photographing and writing about them, etc.)
We can’t say thank you enough for your loyal readership and engagement — without you, we’d just have been two people who spent way too much time publishing our personal thoughts, inside jokes, and renovation projects to the internet for no discernible reason. We will miss sharing all the DIY happenings in our lives with you, but we know you’ll soldier on.
We may stop in here now and again with quick updates or to share particularly exciting DIY projects if the mood strikes us. Since it won’t make sense for you to check here regularly, if you do want to get these please head to the sidebar and enter your email so any new posts are sent to you if you want them. And if life changes down the road (doesn’t it always?) and we decide to pick this back up, we promise you’ll be the first to know!
In the meantime, here are some awkward photos to remember us by:
