Create 365 – Faux Fox Stole

This little fella is kind of free form.  I created him without a pattern and just added and subtracted stitches as I went.  My current project it teaching myself to create a website, which may take a bit of time, so you’ll notice a temporary slow down in posts 😉  I’ll keep you all updated!

Hugs and Smooches,

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 ❤

Create 365 – Geek Chic Crochet

Here is the current project in the works for the Create 365 project..

This hat pattern is from the book “Geek Chic Crochet”.

Amazon

There are some really adorable patterns in this book!  I love the dress pattern on the cover as well 🙂

I have been working on the hat in a pretty wine color and I think I’m going to do the ribbon in gray velvet..Still deciding on that 😉
