Happy New Year! ~ & 2012 Review

It’s been an amazing 2012 with so much to be thankful for.  After a mitten making frenzy in the winter of 2011-2012 I decided I wanted to write my first pattern for my ‘Madawaska Mittens’.  I had so much fun I went on to write 23 more!  As I counted up the number of patterns I wrote I actually surprised myself!  Here is a highlight of some of my 2012 patterns…

If you write patterns too, you know what hard work goes into putting a pattern together… and getting it to ‘market’.  You don’t just sew, that’s the easy part!  When I began I had no idea how to use Illustrator or what the heck a widget was???

I had to learn, and  learn fast…  illustrator, photoshop, wordpress, how to write a listing, design a pattern template, use light room, photo editing, and the list goes on!  It was a bit of information overload with a dash of crazy ~ but it was never dull and always fun.  A big THANKS to Etsy, Craftsy, You can make this and Patterns Only for allowing an avenue for designers to sell!

Also a Shout Out to a couple of my favorite sites ~

Craft Buds ~ Offers SO MUCH great information on starting a business and featured my needle case in their Craft Buds Book Month Round up for Stash Books!  Craft Book Month, by the way, is Great Fun!
