Hiya, guys and gals! I know I haven’t been around for awhile. Mea culpa. This is actually the first night off I’ve had in weeks where I haven’t been nap-attacked. Yet. I’m kind of psyched about it actually.
Anyway, 2015 was a good year for Franciscangypsy Designs. It saw the release of seven new patterns:
It saw the founding of the Franciscangypsy Designs Etsy Shop and the website you’re currently visiting. I printed my first business cards, Franciscangypsy Designs shirts, and Franciscangypsy Designs themed mugs. For a mug and tea fanatic, that last point is very important. And yes, I constantly use my mugs I printed. A bit pathetic maybe, but true.
And, perhaps one of the most exciting moments of the year for me had been the Undead Yarn, Silver Shed USA, and Franciscangypsy Designs Cyrano the Bookworm yarn/project bag/pattern kit. I’m still thrilled about that one!
So 2015 was quite the exciting year! And there is so much that the future can hold! I currently have three toys I’m designing on my hooks and so many more in my mind besides.
I’d love to beat my record for number of toys designed in a year. I want at least eight new designs completed for 2016. I would also love to maybe to a a Franciscangypsy Designs CAL/KAL (crochet-along/knit-along) at some point. Maybe Facebook-based? Or Ravelry-based? I’m still thinking about it… At this point, I only have the one knitted design, The Duke (which is available for free in my Ravelry shop), but it to would be up for working in any Franciscangypsy Designs CAL/KAL.
What would you like to see happen in 2016 for Franciscangypsy Designs?
