There’s No Good Way to Say This…


There’s no good way to say goodbye.

Unless, of course, goodbye is not really goodbye.


It’s been a looooong time since my last post. Those of you who’ve been around the blog a while know that I struggle with several health issues, and I honestly got derailed by them this year. It happens.

But in my prolonged unintentional absence, I found some time to evaluate where I want to take this blog.

Jade and Fern was born out of an accident, you see, when I started blogging about my creative efforts as a way to hold myself accountable. Through Jade and Fern—and YOU, dear readers—I discovered that I REALLY REALLY REALLY love blogging. Like a lot. And I knew that I wanted big things for this little corner of the blog world.

So Jade and Fern is retiring. Or rather, rebranding.

My Facebook fans have already gotten a little peek at the new blog, but the rest of you will have to wait till I get all the technical aspects of a DIY domain change finalized. Soon. Hopefully.

There will be more DIY, more intention, and a whole lot of new goodies. There will be a real logo for once. And there will be cake. (Well for me; I will need at least two to recover from the number of calls I’ve had to place to my webhost this week).

Thank you, friends, for all of your support, page views, shares, pins, and comments. You are what’s fun about blogging, and you are the reason I’m freshening this little online space. I hope you stick around.
