Blogs seem to be a dime a dozen these days. I've even tried my hand at one in the past without much success. I’ve recently changed jobs, though, moving from a full-time, stressful position to part-time librarian bliss. My official work days (all 2 ½ of them) are filled with complex original cataloging (my favorite!) and my off days (all 4 ½ of them!) are filled with… yet to be determined. I’ve always thought about blogging about cataloging, but I didn’t feel like talking much about my last job when the end of the day came. Besides, I didn’t think I could fill a whole blog with just topics about cataloging. The recent overabundance of free-time has prompted me to reacquaint myself with my love of crafting. So perhaps a blog combining two loves will be the ticket: cataloging (and maybe some general library stuff) and crafting (of all sorts). So, I would like to introduce you to The Crafty Cataloger, a potpourri of posts about the things I love. I hope you’ll join me on this journey as I discover what it means to be a part-time professional cataloger with a whole lot of time to fill.
The first project I tasked myself to complete was organizing all my fabric. Until then, take a look at my crafty corner. What crafting cataloger could live without a personal card catalog to organize all those crafting notions?
