Quick update: @maryheatherb, YouTube, hi!

Phew, it's been a long time since I've blogged. I'm so pleased to be in a place where I am excited to log in here and write again! I wanted to get the ball rolling with just a couple of quick updates! 

  • I changed the name of this website to my actual name -
  • If you're on Bloglovin' you can follow it here (indented to hopefully connect with my blog on Bloglovin'): 
  • For my regular RSS feed, for Feedly and other RSS readers, click here.  
  • I've also updated my username on the social media accounts I use - Ravelrytwitter, instagram, pinterest, periscope, and goodreads - to be @maryheatherb
  • It feels refreshing to use my name instead of a username!
  • I've started sharing videos on YouTube! So far they have been planner related (as in a paper planner - will have to write more about my newfound paper planner love here later!) but I have plans to make other craft related videos and tutorials as well as just vlog my life there sometimes. Turns out making videos is something I really enjoy, so it's fun to have this new creative outlet! My channel there is MaryHeatherB as well. You can subscribe from my channel page to catch new videos as soon as they are posted, and I plan to post them here as well. 

Phew! Lots of catchup. I'm excited to begin taking the time to write again, excited about creating and making things (as always), and excited to be sharing them here. If you have read this far - thanks for hanging in there! It feels good to be back. Oh - and one more thing:

  • My dog Charlie is still the very cutest. 

A new!


Hello and welcome to the new Rainy Day Goods website! I started my little blog in 2004 (that's, what, 20 years ago in internet years?). For some time now, I've been plotting a redesign of the site, and have been thinking a lot about how I want to use the space: a central record of my crafts, food, and life, with a prettier pattern store area (and room to grow for new patterns), an organized place to post recipes (coming soon!) and a nice crisp look. I've always used Squarespace to blog, and the release of the new Squarespace 6 motivated me to try it out and get my new site going. It has been fun to build a new little internet home. This site feels so fresh and so clean to me - I'm so excited to restart my blog in this nice new space!

 In addition to a craft blog, this will be my place to share recipes & document details and events from my life... and of course, post pictures of my dog. If you'd like to follow along, you can subscribe to this new blog's feed (it's different than my last blog feed, since this is a whole new site). Thanks for checking out my new site - I'm already looking forward to sharing my crafts, food, and life here!
