The Latest Baby Update

Many of you saw a recent update I gave on my Instagram stories regarding some changes that have taken place in my pregnancy this past week.  So many of you sent messages and comments filled with so much love, support, prayers, and positive thoughts; it truly blew me away.  I tend to be the type of person who doesn't like to ask for help or support, but this experience we are going through is unlike anything I have ever encountered.  I knew I was not going to be able to get through it alone, and I wanted to reach out and share with you all what was happening with us.  The crafting community is such an amazing thing to be a part of, and I am even more grateful than ever to call this community my home.  So before I delve into a detailed update of where things are at right now, I wanted to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for your support, love, positive thoughts, healing vibes, and prayers.  Thank you for being a part of this community with me, and for sha…

January 2019 Baby Update

Happy 2019, everyone!  I hope you all had a great holiday season and are looking forward to a wonderful, crafty year to come.  

I must apologize for losing steam on Vlogmas this year!  It was something I genuinely wanted to do, and had continued to film and edit even though I didn't have time to finish editing and posting videos (after day 8, I think).  Eventually I was so behind, I decided to just let it go and try again some other year.  I also grossly underestimated my own energy levels at that point in the pregnancy.  As I moved into the third trimester, I was feeling extremely tired and had to reserve the energy I had for caring for my family and doing all of the things that go into holiday preparation.  Anyway, I wish I could have kept it up longer than I did, but I had a lot of fun making the few videos I did make!  Thank you all for being so patient with me and understanding.

We had a great holiday as a family, filled with lots of R&R (we really needed that!) and plenty …

BIG CHANGES for The Knitting Broomstick in 2018!!!

Hello everyone!  I feel like it has been far too long since I have chatted with you all.  It's so nice to finally be posting and sharing some things that have been on my heart for awhile now.  I will warn you in advance that this post is long, so feel free to skip over the parts that don't interest you! 

You will find updates in this post concerning my personal life, crafting, the Knitting Broomstick podcast, the 13 Months of Magic KAL (and other KALs), and the Knitting Broomstick Etsy shop.  I have added headers, in bold, so that you can easily skip to the sections that are of interest to you.  And if you read the whole entire thing; I owe you a massive cup of tea!!!!  ;)

PERSONAL:

First, I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season!  I can't believe it is almost over, but it has been a great one and I'm thankful for the time I have had with my family.  It was definitely a different holiday season; a bit of a slower one for us, and that has been nice. 

Almost ever…
