I hope that everyone is enjoying the holiday season. I have enjoyed spending time with family, eating good food, and doing a bit of relaxing.
I'm eager to show you some of the Christmas projects that I took on this year, but I think that I'll wait for a few days. I have plans of cleaning out closets, refrigerators, and cupboard space. I figure that if I take care of some of the housework now, I'll have more time to craft in the future.
I've also been doing a bit of thinking about this little blog that I try to keep up. I started this blog as an outlet for myself. I love sharing my creations with you, hearing feedback, and finding inspiration in all that you create.
I want this blog to show my point of view when it comes to sewing and crafting, but at the same time I want to give my readers what they want. I've posted a couple of polls on my side bar, and would love it if you'd take the time to share your feelings with me. I'd love to know what type of projects and crafts you are most interested in, and what I can do to make this blog more reader friendly. I can't promise tutorials and patterns for every post, but I'd like to know what I can do to improve.
I am considering making a more rigid schedule for my postings. Some ideas that I have running through my head are: a day dedicated to sewing tips, tricks, and techniques; free pattern Friday (round up of free patterns or projects from blogland); recipe day, or spotlighting favorite online shops or blogs. I'm open to suggestions.
While I have your attentions I'd love to know your feelings on guest bloggers and giveaways. I know that sometimes I feel overwhelmed with advertisements and product placement, and I stop reading a blog all together. So do you like guest blogger posts? Do giveaways draw you in or push you away?
Thanks for reading. Hearing from readers really keeps me going. I love creating, and love sharing my creations with you.
