Excuse the dust…again.

Things as you may have noticed are a little bit all over again. Apologies for that, but on the good news end of that, this should, hopefully be the last time it is needed. I finally feel the right layout has been found to give the site the cohesive feeling I have wanted. That gives us the shop and the blog and let’s them feel together. So if you will just keep with me while everything gets ironed out detail wise, soon we will get things really rolling right. Free patterns and other announcements will be right here, along with everything from the shop you would like to purchase!

Time flys…

Can you believe that it is already almost August? I know I sure can’t. Time has been flying by this year and some of it has been fantastic and some of it has been less than fantastic. That is life, though, isn’t it? Up and down. Obviously my goal of writing more on this blog has not yet been met, but hey the year is not over so that is okay. If I have learned anything this year so far it is that I am ONE person and while I can do fantastic things and complete so much, I simply can’t do it all.

While it might not seem like there has been much going on if you look at this blog, if you look at the shop or talk to me in general you will see of course that there has been much going on. The slime side of this business really took off and I honestly can hardly believe that my slime instagram has over 11,000 followers now. Who knew that so many other people would appreciate what I had to make in slime, something I have been doing just for myself since I was a kid in school. I loved science. I still love science. To put a cherry on top of that slime cake I will be attending Slime Bash 2 in October and really I am still pinching myself a little bit over that one. Me at a slime convention! I am very much looking forward to it and I have a lot of prep to work on but I am happy to be on that path.

I am also slowly but surely working through ideas when it comes to, other things to do with my zen place, my crochet. As a self taught crocheter, I have long thought no one would be interested in anything that I had to design. Heck, for a very long time I thought I couldn’t even design my own patterns. Pick out colors that looked good together for patterns that others wrote, yes of course. Make my own? No way.

I was WRONG.

Lately I have found myself free-handing a lot of projects. Just picking up the yarn and going with it. I have now free-handed blankets, shawls, market bags, socks and more. If I can do that and see people respond well to what they see, why can’t I write the patterns down?

So for me this will be my next big step in my little business. Writing down some of my patterns and then from there designing specifically to make yes, but also to sell. I want to be a crochet designer. I can feel my creativity flowing in that direction and telling me that YES YES this is what you need to do. I am a strong believer in food for the soul and doing what you are being told to do by your gut and creative feeling.

I am also going to be giving a large push to a special project close to my heart. It is something that for many years I have done on a small level and quietly. Well, it is time to get a little bigger and louder. Kindness matters in this world and I think we need more of it. The world is a bit of a scary place these days, but we can change it, one small act at a time.

But first…..patterns.

I really do hope you will enjoy this pattern journey with me. I plan on posting free patterns here on the blog and then I will list patterns for sale as well. I am not sure if they will be on Etsy, however, with the fee increase they have enacted recently I really have a bit of a kick in the rear end to really update the shop here and focus on learning how to use woocommerece properly.

Have a fantastic weekend friends!

The camera can’t catch the real sparkle of these little sweeties. I’m so happy about how nice these look. Not sure if I’ll use them for my cosplay or something else. #creationsofbastet

Introducing… Watermelon Stanley? 🍉🍉🍋🍋🍉🍉 I fought the floam and the floam won. I set out to make a Beltane slime but it had other ideas. Video and more photos coming over the weekend. Listed in the shop on Monday. This sparkly pink floam is fun and it smells like Watermelon Lemonade yum! If we can get 50 followers over at the slime portion of COB @wwslimeywimey I’ll do a giveaway of Watermelon Stanley
Qotd: anyone know where I got the name for this floam? 😉
