Hello friends! Just wanted to share this sneak peek of a tutorial I've had in the works.. forever! I actually posted this picture a few months back, but then got busy with other stuff, and now it is time to finish it off.
I hope everyone is enjoying their January. Mine is HOT, but not humid, so I'm pretty happy with that!
I have made another resolution this year, in addition to the last post.. To save money. I used to be pretty good at putting a bit aside.. and then I had children. So I would like to share a few tips with you over the year, even if it has not much to do with crochet.
The first thing I am doing was suggested to me by my friend, The TV Mom. She saw a graphic that showed the balance of a bank account if you put in $1 on the first week of 2013, $2 on the second, all the way to $52 on the last week. You will end up with a total of $1378. She had the idea to do it backwards. Deposit $52 the first week, $51 the second and so on. I like this idea, because it gets easier as the year progresses, and you don't need to find an extra $50 to deposit around Christmas, and the added benefit of having interest calculated on a high amount. I've already started with the first deposit of $52.
In other news my Etsy shop is stocked with crochet hooks as they seem to be very popular. I am trying out something new through my Facebook page, which will give fans a 15% coupon code if they follow the links from the 'My Etsy Shop' App, and share the photo when prompted. Become a fan if you are interested :)
That's all for now, enjoy your week!
