Hello there! 

It has been awhile since I've had the pleasure of posting but I thought I would stop in and let you know what is new in my life. I've always got some sort of craftiness going on but that is not what I want to write about today. 

I recently found out that the youth volunteer led cafe that I manage is going to be closing at the end of the month. It is sad news! I live in a small town that has a lot of young people with very little to do. Our town, like many others, was hit pretty hard by the economic downturn and many young people just don't have any job skills. And The Blue Frog was the place for them to get those skills! It is truly a great lose for my community and it's youth. 

And soon, I will be unemployed, which is never fun. But I started this blog over a year ago to track my progress not only in my crafting but also in starting my own wool and handmade goods shop. Now that I will be unemployed, I'm seriously thinking about following that dream and getting something started in my community! I know it would be a lot of work but I have a great support network and I think I could do it. 

So, please stand by for more word and if you have any experience selling wool, I would love to hear about it!

  1. So sorry to hear about the closing of the cafe--sounds like the community is losing a great asset for its youth. But when one door closes...that is super exciting news about starting your own business! Best of luck with it!
