Busy, busy, busy

Although I freely admit to being guilty of neglecting my blog, I have been keeping busy. I needed to streamline my thoughts, reflect on where I've been, where I am now, and where I want to go in the world of crochet. It was high time to re-organize everything I was doing, incorporate all I was learning, into a business.

My new logo, shown above, is being used for everything from Etsy to correspondence with publishers.  I printed up business cards with the logo and contact info on the front, and then put the item specific info on the back.  For Etsy, this means title, fiber content, and washing instructions.  For publisher submissions, this means the title and issue of the publication along with the title of the design.

My desire to use the skills I learned in Crochet Insider's technical editing class led to a crash course in social networking and the development of a new, easier to navigate website.  Check it out at

I am looking forward to participating in the Tour Through Crochet Country on March 9th to celebrate National Crochet Month.  Find the details at Crochetville.  Thank you, Amy Shelton, for all of your hard work for setting this up - such a great idea!
