Thank you for visiting, following, and/or subscribing to The Artful Crafter.
If there are any new members I didn't personally welcome when you subscribed or joined The Artful Crafter Friend Connect group, let me say how pleased I am that you've chosen to join us.
I can hardly believe it was eight years ago that we launched The Artful Crafter website and the monthly newsletter, "The Artful Crafter Digest".
Six months later, we added this blog where I love to interact with readers. I really do! It's a joy to hear from you; get your ideas for new craft projects; and frequently answer your questions.
Readers, followers, and subscribers come and go. But more are coming than going. Woohoo!
We have readers from:
• The US,
• The UK,
• Poland, and
• Plus a scattering of countries where page views of The Artful Crafter are too low to register in the stats.
Isn't that amazing? Not just that that we're bringing together crafters from around the globe and from many different cultures, but also that those in non-English speaking countries are either:
• Far from their country of birth this New Year's Day; or
• Are making the effort to pursue their love of crafts in a second (or maybe even third) language!
May you all have a wonderful New Year filled with happiness, friends, health, success, and lots of crafty goodness!
