Monthly Recap, June 2017

Hello folks! I think it’s time to start an end-of-the-month trend. This is basically a summary of all the posts that have been published in the past month. This may also be helpful for those who are new here (hi!) or maybe haven’t visited the Blog in a while.

First, an update on the coming month: starting Monday (July 3rd), I’ll be writing a few posts regarding participation in summer Arts Festivals. I chose not to attend the main one this year, to have room for other travels. With that in mind, I’ll do my best to “coach” those who are participating at a craft event or are considering doing so. Although my knee-jerk reaction is “DO IT,” there’s quite a lot to keep in mind before jumping headlong into one event, let alone a few. So there’s that! New kinds of posts coming in the near future!

Ooh, and congratulations to Victor Hugo for completing his classic masterpiece, Les Misérables, on this day in 1862. huge round of applause

Okay, now for the monthly recap!

Going back to updates, this month I’ve posted a couple updates about items, plans; made a few alterations; added new kinds of posts, etc. etc. Admittedly, even I can’t catch up at times. So here’s the list of this month’s updates, to (hopefully) keep everything in order:

(The follow-up post above has lots of appearances by Carter and Mimi… just saying. 😉 )

All in all, a lot has been accomplished this month! I’d thought there would be days with hardly anything to post about, and there have been, but thankfully not very often. I’m thrilled to be able to share snippets of this craft journey with you, Dear Reader. I hope it is as fulfilling for you to read these as it is for me to write the posts. It’s something I never ever want to end.

Here’s to an amazing month of July, folks, and many more crafting months to come!~
