Dilemma, to switch or not to switch?

Ok blogging world, I have a dilemma here. I set up this blog before we got married as a way to keep a journal for myself, friends, and family and document my new life with my husband. I wasn't very good at it to begin with, but thanks to New Year's Resolutions I've done a pretty good job updating this blog all year!

So here's the dilemma.

I've really gotten into crafting and sewing and my blog is getting filled with all of my crafting endeavors and my hobbies and my personal life are getting all jumbled together. Family and friends are most likely more interested in things like my move across the country and my trip to the zoo. I link up my crafts to a lot of parties and these gracious visitors are more likely interested in seeing the crafts I make. So for both cases I feel like someone isn't interested, either my friends and family are getting sick of my crafts, or my fellow crafters are getting sick of seeing all of my family photos.

So what should I do? Should I keep my blog the way it is now, or should I move my craft stuff to another blog and bring this blog back to only being a family blog? I really don't know what to do, so I'm enlisting your help in aiding my decision. Any feedback would be lovely! (I'm also putting a poll in my sidebar in case you're in a hurry and don't have time to leave a comment.)

It's okay to keep business (crafts) and family (trip across country) separate, especially if you are getting craft hits from strangers, don't force them to read about the family. I say split them, but use the same blog host (blogspot), and make sure everyone gets a chance to sign up for the new blog, and link everything together.

I'll second your dad's advice.

I enjoy all of it but I can see where non family would appreciate them to be separate. I vote with your dad.
