Whistle While You Work!

ConstantlyAlice gives me a great sense of joy and accomplishment.  Over the last year or so since I started selling on ConstantlyAlice, I’ve developed a blog, created projects and giveaways, started making handcrafted jewelry and met some wonderful, WONDERFUL people (that’s you!!)

However, I have never really done any of it with a plan in mind.  I just put things out there as I think of them, add stuff to the site when I have a moment away from my full time job and family and occasionally share a thought, passion or two when the spirit moves me.

SO.

I’ve decided to change that a bit and make a more serious commitment to really developing ConstantlyAlice into a thriving business.  I want to provide you, as my customers, community and friends, with not just a good product, but a great one.

What does that mean?

Well, for starters, I am working on creating a ConstantlyAlice website.  It will be a one stop shop for everything ConstantlyAlice.  Blog, merchandise, vintage, tutorials and my soon to be developed YouTube Channel.

I am also expanding what I offer.  As you know, I have recently added the Avon brand to my growing list of products.  Some other things you can expect, in addition to really great vintage finds and handcrafted jewelry, will be knitting and crochet patterns, ConstantlyAlice Designs (a line of vintage inspired clothing and accessories) and a line of handbags and wallets.

Additionally, you can expect a lookbook/magazine.  This project is still in the works, but I hope to make it either a quarterly or seasonal offering.

You’ll notice these changes gradually, and everything else will be business as usual (I won’t be closing up shop while I go through this process!)  Keep an eye out for the grand unveiling of the site, lots of giveaways and contests, some discount coupons and sales as we grow 🙂

Thanks so much for being loyal customers and followers of ConstantlyAlice ❤

Hugs and Smooches,

Create 365 Project Update

Soooo, I began this collar yesterday from the spring issue of Vogue Knitting.  I’m making it in a lovely kelly green (in honor of St. Patrick’s day). 

Since I’m determined to work on creating something each day, I put the yarn, magazine and needles into my purse and brought it along with me for dinner with my family…and then proceeded to get totally distracted, lose track of where I was and mess up my pattern.  I had to unravel it all (cussing the whole time..well, my brand of cussing..which usually involves words like “holy peanuts!” and “son of a biscuit”).  I think maybe I need to put the yarn down for a little bit and try a different project.  Though my sewing and jewelry making projects may not be as portable, they might be a welcome respite as they come a little easier to me.

Perhaps I’ll start an embroidery project..that should travel fairly easily!

I’ll keep you posted on my progress, and I will certainly be revisiting this collar because I’m totally head over heels for it 😉

Hugs and Smooches,

In Create 365 news, I’m working on knitting the collar I mentioned in this blog post.  I’m sorry to say I am NOT the worlds fastest knitter, so it may be a few days before it’s complete!
