I couldn’t be more grateful for all the great feedback and support I’ve received through this blog, including but not limited to those who have followed me from the very beginning, everyone who has clicked and commented on the patterns and tutorials I’ve entered into the link parties, and all the crafty individuals who have purchased patterns & supplies from me – providing me with the monetary resources to continue funding my little business.
Back in 2011, when I set up my first vendor stand at a local festival, I knew making and sharing my art was going to be my passion – because I saw the things I had made people happy – in small ways, maybe, but those count too. Through the next 4 years I continued crafting and crocheting, occasionally selling my pieces within my friend group and festival family who went out of their way to share their kindness and enthusiasm with me.
Selling my designs as patterns had been my goal for years, and I will never forget the excitement I felt when I sold my first pattern. I guess the point of all this schmaltzy rambling is that everyone involved – friends, family, readers, customers – has made me keep believing in myself.
Truly it is my morale that has been lifted. But fear not! The crocheting will continue.
Well, the crochet community is richer because of you and others like yourself, who take the time and make the effort – day after day, week after week, month after month.
And I think it important to let you – and others – know that those of us who cannot blog, cannot design, etc. are so very grateful that you do! Because of you and those like you, we ‘newbies’ or less talented are able to increase our own abilities, and thus create projects for others – and for ourselves – that we could NOT do without you.
So THANK YOU! and please, if you can, please keep up ‘the good fight’! We need talented folks like you to show us the ropes…to teach, to “hold our hands” – to inspire!
Wow! I can’t tell you how much that means to me…Thank you so much! My own skills were built on the contributions of awesome crochet community members who came before me. It’s really a great and inspiring thing to be a part of! 🙂 🙂
