This week I’m taking a few days off from work (yay!), so I wrote my craft goals update in advance. This is my 99th post since I started this blog on March 27. Starting tomorrow, I will host a week of giveaways to celebrate my 100th post, so stop by again soon for your chance to win some awesome crafty goodness!
Ok, back to my goals…
Personal crafting goals
2) Work my way through Crochet Master Class: Lessons and Projects from Today’s Top Crocheters.
I just started the filet crochet chapter, and I already know which chapter is next on my list .
12) Continue to destash and keep my newly created crafting space organized.
I sold a few more items through my Stash Sale since my last post. I think I can almost see the bottom of that shelf again!
14) Make at least two custom fit pet gifts.
Over the weekend, I visited my mom’s house and had the chance to take some measurements on her lovely pooch, Lily. Let’s hope I will have some time in the next few weeks to get started on a project…

3) Publish at least five patterns.
I am super excited to announce that I’m going to be included in Cooperative Press‘s Fresh Designs Crochet series. One of my patterns will be in the Kids book! Although I will need to keep most of the details private until it is published in 2012, I look forward to providing some sneak peaks in the coming weeks. (By the way, the Fresh Designs call for submissions has been re-opened for some categories with a deadline of September 2.)
4) Blog at least twice a week.
Perhaps I’m excited by my upcoming 100th post, or maybe it is due to my vacation from work, but I have been posting a little more than usual this week.
9) Figure out how to do super cool stuff on WordPress.
I think I get an “E for effort” on this one. This week I tried to insert a photo from Flickr into a post. Instead I sent out an unexplained picture to my blog subscribers . I also made several tries to embed a video in this post, but ended up linking it in the end. Progress, or not? You can let me know what you think.
