Happy One Year!

This month MaKC Creations' blog will celebrate one whole year of existence! And if everything goes well, I'll be celebrating 100 posts as well.

What a year it's been. I think it's safe to say that I have had great spurts of creativeness, and dry spells with not much to say for themselves. I don't know if I can say that I have accomplished all that I dreamed of accomplishing when I first started out on this journey. But I can say that I am happy with what I have done and that I am looking forward(and hoping for) more growth in all aspects. I am happy with the growth of followers, with the interest generated in my Etsy shop, and with the number of times other bloggers have contacted me and asked me to be apart of their giveaways. I am most pleased with my doodle purse tutorial, and how it continues to bring readers to my blog. I gives me great pleasure to know that I have created something that so many people around the world have fallen in love with.

I want to thank you, my 50 followers, for letting me know that somewhere out there, someone is reading my blog and that at times, I might even inspire you to create something of your own. As a thank you to my readers, I am offering a 30% discount off everything in my Etsy Shop with the code "Anniversary" for the entire month of February.

You'll all be happy to know (is that to much to presume?) that I think I may be getting over my crafting funk. I've spent the day perusing online fabric shops, and nothing makes me want to sew more than looking at delicious fabrics. It's interesting to me that when I am looking for fabric to make things for other people in general, things that I make to sell, that it is much easier for me to pick out fabric and I even have to spend time narrowing things down, but when it comes to making something as simple as a carseat canopy or a baby sling for myself, I am much more picky about the fabric, I know exactly what I want, and I just can't seam to find that exact thing. Another sign that this funk may be up is that the past few nights I have been laying in bed awake till crazy hours in the morning thinking about how to create this baby sling that I want to make for my little one for when he/she arrives. I've been looking on line at different styles and ways of making them, and of course I figure I can do it better :). OK, so there was a point to all of that, I had temporarily forgotten that I was going to make a point. But I have now remembered that my point is that I am hoping to have some new things up in the shop through out the month, these new items will be included in the 30% off sale.

ALSO if you do make a purchase from my Etsy shop you will be entered into a draw for a really great something(s). Not absolutely sure what yet...still thinking on that and once I have this really great something(s) created I will post it to show you what you are all dying to win.


  1. Congratulations, Mandy. Here's to another fun year and lots of great ideas! (And a healthy baby!)

    I have enjoyed reading your blog and I'm not even a crafter. I love looking at all your creativity and reading your little life stories = )
