busy times

Hey everyone! :)

I’m still here, I’m still here! I am just so very busy at the moment, I can’t believe it. Remember when I set those goals at the beginning of the year? Well, one of those goals was ‘Get Published’. I know, it’s not on that list. I omitted it on purpose, because I was afraid it was too much. I thought that was something I would never accomplish, at least not this year. Boy was I wrong! :) I’ve been in Simply Crochet magazine 4 times now (with more coming up!), I had a mention in Crochet Today!, and I will be in more magazines later this year that I can’t tell you about just yet.

Meanwhile I’m participating in Design Wars 4; I have a partnership with a yarn brand coming up; I’m still designing patterns round the clock for Tuts+; my blog stats are through the roof; and I even got a little office space for myself (more on that later)!

Can somebody pinch me? Is this really all happening to me? Me, and my little ‘ol blog? How did this happen? I started this blog on May 3rd, 2011, a mere two years ago. Two years, and it has grown from a little blog that no-one read (I remember the day I got a comment on one of my blog posts – I went through the roof!) to a full-time occupation with lots of lovely and loyal followers that I consider to be my best friends.

I truly appreciate each and every comment you all leave me; here, on my Facebook page, my Twitter and Instagram feeds – those kind words make my world go round! So thank you, for being such wonderful people, for inspiring me to keep going and create more wonderful things!

xo,
wink

ps Did you see that amazing pastel yarn? It’s by Devon Sun Yarns on Facebook, and later this week it’s mine! I’ve got a pretty good idea of what I’m going to make with it, but as always, I’m open to suggestions! ;)
