I'm Moving



Who would have guessed that selling handmade goodness on Etsy would evolve into a blog, a business, a book and new friends?  I am amazed and I am grateful.  It's impossible to have guessed how many creative people I would "meet" -- most only through blogs and luckily some in person.

Through these many years I have learned so much and I hope I have also given back in some way. 

It's been wonderful being able to support my crafting habit/hobby through my little business venture.  I like not having any strings attached to my creative outlet.   As Frank Sinatra sang "I did it my way." 

Change happens.  Change can be good -- it all depends on how you look at it.  I've done a little business reevaluation and like where I'm headed.  Abby and I are excited. 

I have decided to close the doors of Loft Creations -- the business.  Loft Creations maybe be closing its doors but I'm opening a new little window with a new look.   To everyone who has followed along, thank you. I hope you'll like our new space.

Stay tuned if you still want to see what I'm up to.  I'll post a link to my new space very soon.  My Loft Creations blog doors shall also remain open for awhile for anyone who has purchased my book or patterns and want to use the tutorials.  Also you may still purchase a copy of Uncommonly Corduroy on this site -- information is on my side bar.

My patterns on Etsy and Craftsy are still there if you're interested.  New patterns are in the works.

Thank you to everyone who has followed along through the years.

~Piecefully, Stephanie

Change can be exciting and good for the soul. We all need to reevaluate from time to time to make sure we're doing the best thing for ourselves and our loved ones.
So happy for you...and Abby. :)
I hope she is doing well, tell her that Hunny sends her love.
