Happy New Year!

I'm back and already I'm a day late!

So many things have been going on around here and it just hit me, when I saw the last blog post, that it has been 2 months since I last posted.  I am back on the Tuesday {except for today} and Friday posting schedule.  Many changes have been made in the last two months, but I promise to share regularly all the things that I am working on in My Spare Time!

First, you might notice a few changes here on the blog.  I have switched over my website to this blog and will be using this space as my website.  Didn't seem like a good use of time to have a site and a blog when the site was never updated.  My Spare Time Designs is moving in a new direction and we will be focusing on the unique, one of a kind items that my customers seem to love.  I love to create, but when it comes to mass production {even if it was just 5-6 of each} it is a BORE!  So join us here and become a Craft Junkie!


Second, the look of the blog is a little different.  Because I switched my blog over to a commercial blog I could no longer use the blog graphics that I was using{no CU on graphics from the Shabby Princess} .  I really liked the look and thought the graphics gave the perfect feel to My Spare Time Designs blog.  Well after a Google search I found Shabby Miss Jenn Designs and fell in love with her graphics!  She gives you the rights to use any of her graphics on your blogs as long as you buy the graphics and you do the work, {NO file sharing}. So I used her wonderful graphics to make this custom blog set just for ME!!  Love the way it turned out.


Third, {now hold on to your hats} I have made a Facebook and Twitter page for My Spare Time Designs! I know I posted a whole thing about not wanting to be so technically connected, but I have made it a New Year's Resolution to learn to do both.  So click on the buttons to the right and become a fan on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.  You can also get us as an RSS Feed and be notified of all the goings on here at My Spare Time Designs. Now remember that I am knew to this, so don't expect too much!


Fourth, after a lot of thought I have decided not to participate in the Champion Forest Baptist Church, Winter Wonderland Market this year.  The show is wonderful and well run, the people there couldn't be nicer and I have always done well there, but I'm sorry to say that I will not apply this spring.  I have come to a place in my Folk Art where I cannot produce enough product to supply four days of sales.  The Northampton Spirit of the Holidays Marketplace and the Judy Dierker Craft Classic at the Foundry UMC are the only shows I will be doing this coming season.{I will keep you updated about these shows} So mark your calendars for these two shows in October, you can see my schedule posted on the right.


So with all these changes being made and my other two websites, you can understand why I took off two months to get some house cleaning{both mentally and physically} done.  Thanks for following along on the tales of an Online Primitive Crafter.
