Well, it’s been a bit of a bumpy road getting this blog revved up, but things should be much smoother now.
You might be wondering why we’re doing a blog and how we ended up with the name. I’m here to shed some light on this…
When the good folks at MCG reignited their Facebook page they quickly discovered a downside, and that was that there really wasn’t a way to archive posts so they could be used as references months after they’re written. After a few posts, the older ones get hidden as new posts appear, and unless someone has a lot of time to scroll through all the posts, they won’t be able to easily find the answers they’re seeking.
Facebook is GREAT for commentaries, questions and sharing pictures and information, but as a resource for our customers, it has some limitations.
Hence the blog…
As I write posts they will be put in categories…and the categories are visible on the right side of the blog. Right now there aren’t many showing but that’s only because the posts aren’t published yet. If you have a question on Locker Hooking, you might find the answer in the FAQ’s category or two upcoming categories – Locker Hooking and Tips & Tricks. As an avid crafter myself, I can attest that there is nothing more aggravating than having a question or problem arise on a Friday night that derails your weekend crafting plans because no one is available to answer your question until Monday morning! This blog will hopefully become a great resource for everyone so that doesn’t happen…often. 🙂
In addition to this being a resource for you, we hope that posts will spark conversations between everyone who stops by. If a post inspires you to comment or ask a question, just click the “Leave a Comment” link at the bottom of the post. After writing your comment, if you want to keep up with what others are saying, check the box that says “Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail” and you’ll receive an e-mail whenever a new comment is added. This will be especially helpful for you if you’ve posed a question.
Now, why is this blog called Emmie’s Craft Closet? Well, as all crafters know, a craft closet is filled with all kinds of goodies and surprises – and that’s exactly what we are planning to do with this blog! You’ll never know what you’ll find here, but it will definitely be crafty, fun and hopefully, informative! And if you can’t find what you want, then please leave a message on MCG’s Facebook page and let us know!
One last thing for today. The pictures in the photo at the top of the blog are sections from my personal craft closet…one of them 😉 The two baskets of goodies are not in the closet itself but are accents in my family room.
Now that I’ve played show-and-tell with my closet, it’s your turn! Do you have a craft closet or cabinet or storage system? Upload your pictures on MCG’s Facebook page so we can see yours – and no cleaning or organizing first!
Until next time…keep being crafty
