I have a newsletter!
That's right.... big changes are afoot!
Okay, maybe more like mildly noteworthy, but I promise I'm doing things to make other things easier for you! After all these years of owning and operating my own website, I have finally set up a newsletter subscription option (note the sidebar). Sure, fumbling my way through MailChimp was a laughable exercise in patience (or my lack of it), but I'm figuring it out, managed to release one whole newsletter without melting into fits of frustration, and I didn't even throw anything in technology-induced rage, so I'm calling it a win!
And I've made myself (and you, who sign up) a promise... I wont abuse your inbox. That's right, I'm getting straight to the heart of the matter. These days, in a world of promotions and advertisements, we have to be careful when, how and to who we release our email address. We're often promised a great (temporary) perk and all we have to do is sign over our inbox. Then we get an email every day, every time a new product is released, for every new sale, discount, event, promotion. And before we know it... we're just deleting these emails upon receipt. And soon enough, unsubscribing all together.
I'm going to save all of us the heartache, to change the end of this sad love story before it begins, and promise right here and now that you'll only receive bi-monthly updates, so you know what's new without cumbersome daily or weekly notifications. This way, if you miss a social media update, event announcement, new product release or blog post, you can find a link to these things all in one simple email! And, in case you missed the sign-up form, I've got you covered.....
And there's reason to sign-up and stay tuned, because I've got "Finish It!" contests coming in August and November, my Instagram giveaway is still underway (though closing in on the required 5000 followers). I'm also on the hunt for a Michigan venue to host a US wire weaving workshop or weekend retreat which I hope to plan for the 2017 calendar year. I've got new videos coming on my Go Art Yourself YouTube channel (including a hand-flower bracelet and hair comb), and I wouldn't want you to miss either.
Changes are definitely afoot, and I hope you're along for the ride!

I have an RSS feed for your blog, which I absolutely love. Do you cross post to your blog and your other outlets?

The blog is definitely its own entity. I definitely post links to blog posts on my other social media outlets on occasion, but what you can read in my blog is pretty focused to just my blog. The newsletter will link to blog content and store content, to keep folks aware, if they don't have or want an RSS feed, but will also contain things specific to the newsletter as well. Coupons and specials, for instance, will likely now be specific only to the newsletter.

Congratulations, I just subscribed. I'm curious how yours will look. :)

I've surprisingly sent one without hiccups. I'm using Mailchimp now. I'd tried it a while back and found it confusing, but didn't seem to have too many issues this time around, so perhaps they improved their interface a little.
