Whoa August went by fast x_x! I can’t believe it’s already September! I feel like I’m still not even caught up from last month >w< I’m still working on depleting my scrap stash of fleece, as my stash of heavy fabrics is very nearly gone. But it also occurs to me that Halloween will be just around the corner! So maybe I’ll start working on things for that ^-^
Also this month I did my first ever giveaway 😀 At first I thought holding giveaways would be too soon, but some of my fanbase from DeviantArt has trickled over into Tumblr and Facebook, so maybe I’ll try to make them a regular thing!
I’m thinking for every milestone (kiriban) I hit on every different social media webzone, I’ll do another giveaway 😀
DeviantArt pageviews: 76,670/100,000 = 77%
DeviantArt watchers: 2,942/4,000 = 74%
Facebook likes: 946/1,000 = 95% (almost there!)
Tumblr followers: 540/1,000 = 54%
WordPress followers: 746/1,000 = 75%
It looks like the closest goal I’m at is Facebook likes! So I guess to get closer to the next giveaway, check out my Facebook page or invite your friends and I’ll be giving away something new in no time! 😀
And finally the last update I have is the next round of my Monthly Crafting Challenge!
The freebie for September is the pattern for this trio of Maki Rolls!
These are really simple but are a definite staple in any sushi collection ^-^ They’re just a simple roll filled with a bit of filling (either cucumber, tuna, or tempura shrimp depending on what color you go for) and wrapped in rice and nori. With all the different filling and face choices, I just had to make a group of the little guys!
If you haven’t signed up for emails yet, you can get this little guy along with the freebie for August today only, and after today the prize is just this guy 🙂 Though you can purchase the August pattern on my Etsy if you’re too late. But for now, just sign up with the entry box on the side of the screen and I’ll send you the pattern!
If you’ve already signed up for emails, that’s where the challenge comes in. You can get this pattern if you make one of the projects from this blog or my books then message the finished project to me or my Facebook where I have a really awesome collection going of your creations! Keep it up every month and you’ll get a new free pattern, so don’t forget to check back during October to see what I’ve cooked up :3
