My 300th (and final!) post!!

It is with a little bit of sadness (but mostly just excitement about new beginnings!) that I write my 300th and final post here on Mezz Makes Stuff. It's a total coincidence that this post is number 300, but it feels nice to finish on such a nice, final, rounded number, don't you think?
There is no big reason for finishing this blog other then that over time I have found I have been blogging less and less. It has been a slow and natural change of season, and that's ok. When I didn't post here much last year, I decided to give myself a few goals for 2015 in order to update this space more regularly... but it wasn't long before all of that kind of fizzled, and I knew it was probably time to admit that I was just not able to blog here the way I once was a few years back.
I have loved this space. It has meant so much to me. Through this blog, I discovered a passion for writing and connecting, creativity, crafternoons, sharing ideas and trying new things. My little world expanded simply by writing here! I had a place to escape to when I needed, and a platform to share my voice.
This blog has been a light and uplifting place for me during some less then light and uplifting periods of my life. It has been so very special, so to all of you who have being loyally reading along, or popped by from time to time I thankyou from the bottom of my heart for your generosity, support, kind feedback and love. It's been wonderful.
Mezz Makes Stuff will remain online as a preserved archive of what I have done here the past few years. In the meantime I am still making my crafty handmade zine Hundreds and Thousands Mag with fellow blogger Taz, which has been a pretty huge project that stemmed from the ideas and connections I have made through this blog. I also document many aspects of my life, including all the thrifting, making, baking, and music making I get up to over on instagram (@mezzcoleman) and finally (drum roll please!) I now have a pretty great website over at www.mezzcoleman.com which will be devoted mostly to my music and zine, but I do plan to blog there (sporadically) about other bits and pieces as well when the inspiration arises!
Throughout this post are some of my favourite pics I have posted here over the years. Once again thanks so much for being part of the journey. It has been a real life giver and game changer for me, and has led me onto so many other creative adventures, so I will be forever grateful for you all!
Please pop on over to www.mezzcoleman.com and check it out!
