Why hello everyone! Today is not a typical blog post about a specific craft or baking project, but just a little insight on some of the things I have been working on and things you can expect coming over the next few months.
First of all, I hinted at something coming soon a few weeks ago on my "Extras" page and here it is! I got a wonderful logo made for me by the lovely and talented Emily! Look at it! IT'S SO PRETTY!
I am so excited about this logo and can't wait to use it everywhere. It is now the profile picture on my Instagram and I am working on getting some business cards made so that I can have them to hand out at craft fairs. I also currently have it on the homepage of the website here, but it is a small image a little ways down on the page and I am working on re-configuring the page so that the logo can be shown more prominently.
If anyone would like some logos made, send Emily a message on Instagram; her handle is @armed_with_arrows. In addition to crafty things she also sells a brand of activewear called Zyia. Please check her out when you have a minute!
Second, I have also created a Facebook page for the blog! I will be using Facebook in a way similar to Instagram, giving updates about upcoming blogs and letting people know when the Wednesday blogs have officially been posted. I am hoping that using both Instagram and Facebook may help me reach a few more people! If you are interested in looking at the page, you can look for The Patterned Paper Plate in the search bar on Facebook. This should bring you to my page.
Third, over the next few months I would really like to try and make some more videos. The video I posted in January was a tough thing for me to do, but I tried my best and would really like to try and create some videos showing how to do a project. Hopefully by the time March rolls around I will have a video coming your way! If anyone would ever be interested in videos where I answer questions as well, please feel free to leave questions in the comments and I would be happy to use them in a future video!
And lastly, I wanted to give a little hint of some of the projects you can be expecting to hear about in blog posts coming up.
1. I am working on some antique looking chalkboards using pretty metal platters and baking pans.
2. I am also starting to move forward on my clocks which I talked about back in my January video. I have found some beautiful plates and pretty baking pans I am going to attempt to turn into clocks; this is quite the project so wish me luck!
3. Finally, I am getting started on a "mail center" shelf for my boyfriend and I for our kitchen so that we have a place to put current mail instead of just dumping it on the kitchen table. Our kitchen table is currently not usable for eating things so this is an important project.
All three of these projects are fairly intensive and I want to give them the time they deserve so that's why I didn't have something particularly crafty for you today!
I also felt it was important to give a little update to the people who have been reading this blog since I started it. I truly appreciate everyone who takes the time to read about my crafty projects each week. This blog means a lot to me and I cant wait to keep sharing my creativity with you!
P.S. This is the first week that the blog has gotten more than 100 visitors so THANK YOU EVERYONE!
I am a 26-year-old crafter and baker from New Hampshire!
