I can’t believe its the end of JANUARY 2017 already!!!! Can you believe how fast this 1st month has gone? I have tried to have a quiet month enjoying family time…but I had some MAJOR things going on behind the scenes as usual 😉 Most of which I can’t tell you about…yet…
But there are some things I’ve been working on for months now that I can share…You may have noticed I have a new website!
I have spent the better part of the last 2 months building this site from scratch and I have to say I am super pleased with how its come up – I just love it!
On the front page when you arrive on the site you will notice a few things, as you scroll down the page the navigation bar moves with you – so you will always be able to move to another part of the site with ease! The banner across the top of the page will link you to the 5 most recent blog posts – no need to search aimlessly for that post you saw me share last week 😉
There are also many other ways to navigate around the site, you could use the navigation bar or you can use the quick links (pictured below) or the search bar (pictured above).
Some really great things to note about my new site is the Shop – you can now make all your pattern purchases right here from my own store (unless your in the EU, then you’ll still have to purchase from Etsy because of VAT). But you can find the link to my shop above if your interested, why don’t you check it out and let me know what you think of it in the comments?
Another great feature of my new site is that it has the capability for you to re-download your patterns (if they were purchased HERE in my shop), no more lost patterns 😉
But I haven’t only been working on my new site…both my testers and I have had a VERY busy holiday period working on a FABULOUS new pattern that will be ready to share with you in just a few days time! What? You would like a sneak peek? ok you twisted my arm 😉
February 2nd will mark the beginning of my 3rd year since I entered this pattern designing world and I am so grateful to have found something I both love and am pretty good at – if I do say so myself 😉 – AND something that has allowed me to create and foster so many wonderful relationships with you, my followers, readers, customers and colleges. Last year on February 2nd some of you may remember I through a fantastic online party on my Facebook Page…well this year is going to be even more EPIC, I will be again throwing an online party on Facebook, but this time it will take place in my Group – Patterns By Emkie. I have some fabulous games lined up and some prizes and things to give away so you definitely don’t want to miss this! Here are the details…
WHEN: February 3rd
TIME: 10am – 12pm (AESDT)
