Happy New Year & Thank You!

I can't believe it's already New Year's Eve again! I felt like Christmas, and the year preceding it, flew right by me! As I reflect on 2014 and all that happened over the year, a chunk of it makes me sad, I am so glad some of it is over, and am so grateful for the lessons learned and new life experiences that I can carry with me from now on.

As far as bittersweet events over the year go, I had to end 2.5 years of stitching and creating tutorials over at Feeling Stitchy , in addition to a short stay at the Craftsy Embroidery Blog, in order to take on a full time teaching position that would benefit my professional career. It was great being able to share my embroidery knowledge with so many people and have the great people who built Feeling Stitchy and Craftsy put their trust in me to create posts to share. 

Great things that happened over the year include opening my Etsy shop, Bobby Pin Stitches, having great adventures with my sister, and putting an end to my nomadic lifestyle by finding a nice little house to live in. 

Aside from everything that has happened, I really just feel grateful and want to say thank you to everyone who stops by my space here. I find so much support, inspiration, and encouragement here and on Instagram @bobbypinbandit - It is truly appreciated and I thank you for letting me share my stitchery and handmade items with you. 

I hope the road in 2015 holds only good things. I wish you the best in the New Year and look forward to all the items we'll continue to make and share in 2015!

Thank you and Happy New Year!

Thank you so much, Kerry! I need to update my blog as much as I update Instagram. It's so quick and easy, though!

Thanks for always leaving my comments of support. It means more than you know!
