Changes Coming

Hey everyone! Today I'm here to announce a few new fun things coming your way.

The first is that I am going to be closing Country With Style. I have been at this "blogging business" for just over a year now. I've experimented with a few things, gotten lazy and not posted consistently, gotten super excited and post a lot, and I have definitely learned a lot. You all have followed along and put up with me through it and for that I thank you! I started the second blog not too long ago because I thought I needed some space to explore some other subject matter that I had bouncing around in my head. Some of you have traveled over there and joined me and I thank you for your support, however, at this point I don't know why I felt it was necessary to change anything at all! The subject matter that I love is right here - yarn. It is what I know, what I am passionate about and what will always fill my time. This other blog, while fun, has seen the end of it's time. I think I needed to do it just to get the bug out of my system. Plus, as fellow yarn enthusiasts, you cook dinner for your family and probably wouldn't cry if I presented you with a post from time to time with a smoothie or dinner recipe. Right?

So if you have been following Country With Style, I'm sorry, but I will be taking it down. It became clear to me really quickly that I needed to focus energy on one blog to be successful with it. However, the good news is, that with that focused energy, you can expect more consistent blogging from me here. I am going to strive very hard to have a post up for you on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. When I have a free patterns to release they will be coming out on Fridays. I am going to try to have at least one free pattern a month and I will also be starting round ups. Starting Saturday you will be seeing weekly "Saturday in Style" posts. I will be including great fun patterns from all the other fantastic bloggers that I have the pleasure of networking with, learning from and "rubbing shoulders" with.

The second exciting thing I wanted to announce is that you are going to start seeing videos from me! I'm hoping to get started in the next few days and to have not only "how to" videos for each of my free and paid patterns but also stitch how to videos so if you are new to crochet and are confused by a particular stitch you can watch it done a few times before you continue with the pattern.

The last and final thing that I want to announce is that I am now a Jamberry Nails consultant! It came about very simply that I fell in love with the product and started using it and wanted a discount! Very soon you will start to see them in my step by step photos and my pattern videos. I just wanted to make you aware that if you want to try them out you can absolutely contact me about them and I would be happy to answer any questions or even do a Facebook party for you so that you and your friends can find out how fun and amazing they are! If you have never heard of Jamberry Nails you can check out my website HERE. You are in for a real treat!

Well that is it for today! Make sure to come check back in on Saturday to see the fun patterns that will be included in the very first Saturday in Style post!

Until then, Be Happy!
