17 Before 2017 – Plan Ahead, Finish Strong!

It’s that time of year when we start thinking about how fast this year flew by and realizing how many things we didn’t finish. After creating a 16 Before 2016 last year, I decided this is a great practice to get into for the 4th […]

Changing Your Perspective – Year in Review

Do you ever feel like you haven’t made any progress with your crochet business (or even your crochet skills)? This past year has been a true eye opener for me, in more ways than one. We’ve all heard the saying, “don’t look back you’re not […]

New Year for a New You – Day 2

New Year for a New You – Day 1
