When I first started this blog I was able to post everyday, then it became every other day and then maybe once or twice a week. The thing is I really do love writing in my blog and connecting with other bloggers on WordPress, each one has their own individual take and a wealth of knowledge to learn and read about.
Life though sometimes has other ideas and even though the topics to blog about whirl around in my head, the time to put them on paper so to speak is limited.
I have been slowly developing my gift pack range and also looking to expand into other areas of handmade products. Last night I finished a beautiful hexagon shaped handbag made of bamboo and cotton thread, I can’t wait to show you all tomorrow when I put the post up on Instagram. I have always loved handbags and when I first started crocheting that is one of the first things I made and also the very first thing I ever sold on Etsy.
There is so much more coming up in my range, I will do my best to detail it as I make progress. I will be starting my Christmas range in the next week so I hope to debut some items by the end of next week. So all in all I have hit the ground running and this blogging thing is getting further behind me!!! Not to mention the hundreds of food pictures I have with recipes waiting to be written! Aghhhh! I will get there eventually. Isn’t it the tortoise that won the race after all!

Sometimes when you let go……..you gain. This week has certainly taught me that lesson! I let go of my fears, my anxiety and constant worrying and just learnt to enjoy and savour every moment. And what an exciting week it has been!
The beautiful Veronica Neal from https://www.facebook.com/GiftingEmporium/ has sent me this stunning photo of her gorgeous hamper selection available for the month of June. Veronica runs a local gift hamper business and has a selection of quality hampers to suit all tastes and budgets. Every month she curates a selection of local products to include in her hampers. I am proud to announce that this month my handmade crochet facewashers and scrubbies are included in the hamper. Made from 100% cotton/bamboo. They are soft and long lasting, machine washable and make an excellent addition to any selfcare routine.
I custom make these washers and scrubbies, so if there is a particular colour you are after please message me on my instagram page http://instagram.com/vickys_handcrafted_designs for colours and pricing.

The Art of Crochet
For those of you who have been following my blog for a while now, you may have seen my Art of Crochet squares. I truly love this series as it teaches you step by step on how to crochet different stitches. I have learnt so much, so far and every week there is a new square in the series, which you then sew together to form a blanket! Check out your local newswagent or magazine distributor to see if they have the series for you to buy. Take a look at my instagram page http://instagram.com/vickys_handcrafted_designs for more progress details.
