Blogging on the Edge

Ok, help me out here- is there anything you'd like to see/read on this blog that isn't already here? I'm working on expanding links and adding more colorful buttons. I know some have suggested I not use colored text cause it's hard to read for some- but I'm insanely addicted to color and texture and am easily bored with plain white text. Sorry.

I could expose more of my personal life, but I've tried posting personal stuff before and almost always freak out and delete the post. Mainly because I live in a small town where everyone knows me and may (if they don't already) think I'm a total freak job. Or worse- if I rant/vent about someone I know who gets under my skin, the gossip will fly. Life in a fish bowl, eh?

I've added a map thingy that logs where visitors to my site are from. Hope this is not too Big Brother-ish for anyone. Just curious what parts of the world are peeping at me. I was over the moon when I saw a hit from New Zealand. I want to go there sooooo bad. I know once I get there I'll never leave- they'll have to freakin deport me.

Anyhow, I'd love some feedback...


  1. I've just recently discovered your blog, and I think your yarns are beautiful. I think it would be great to hear more about how you decide what designs you want to make - inspirations, etc.

  2. I agree with Sara. It would be fun to see photos of your yarns before you ply them and after, too.

  3. Hmmmm... how to capture the creative process? That will be a hard one, cause normally I am either working bits in to an already colorful roving or I have a theme that comes to mind and build around that. Stuff just pops into my head most of the time- but I will admit there have been a couple of inspirations that drove me to spin a yarn, so I will be sure to include that next time.

    I have posted pictures in the past of yarn on the bobbin before its plied, and will try to include more of that as well as the fibers before they are spun. Thanks for the feedback- I think those are both great ideas and if anyone can suggest anything more I would love to hear from you.

  4. I love your use of colored text and hope you don't succumb to web pressure and blandify it. And know what you mean about personal blogging; I do, despite the fact that I know it could bite me in the ass later. I tend to be all Velma-on-the-outside in real life so do it in cyberspace too (a la Insubordiknit, methinks). To each her own, though.
