I destash my craft room whenever I decide to straighten it up.  I don't know how it gets in the state of chaos that it does.  I am the only one who goes in there.  The rest of my home looks good.  One could just drop by for a cup of tea and think my house looks good, but little do they know that down the hall and the last door on the right a bomb has exploded.   I usually try to find a good home for whatever I am wanting to let go of..like now I am in the middle of of destashing some thread and nobody around here works with it..so it will be a give away on my blog whenever I get it all together.

I am surprised there are no comments on this issue.  I find it curious that some think because if you are at home "crafting" that you aren't working.  I have an Etsy shop..someday hope to be able to open a storefront (dreaming?).  I crochet what I consider to be heirloom quality product, using only the best thread.  I create these masterpieces because yes, I like to.   I don't want to ever feel like it is work, and usually only feel like that when I have too many orders and too little time.  So when it comes to pricing my stuff..that is hard..knowing that many hours go into making one doily.  I discovered, only after opening my Etsy shop, that yes, there are some out there that will undervalue their creations, just to make a sale.   Or maybe their product just isn't that good..whatever the reason.  I feel that if you value what you created price it accordingly and don't worry about the sale.  I want people who aquire my creations to admire and appreciate the work and value what I have made.   So with all that being said..I am off to grab a hook..Blessings

 @CrochetBlogger I usually to the designer's website yes..And I usually join their mailing lists or whatever they are called in order to know when a new design comes out..for example..Patricia Kristoffersen  hasn't put out a new design in years..but just the other day she just self published a new doily pattern..I probably wouldn't have known if she hadn't had a yahoo group or mailing list.  As you know I am a thready at heart.  A blog is a good way, but people have to find you..and that can be difficult.

I buy many patterns from self publishing designers..however..I do not go to ravelry..I have had problems trying to download and it is not an easy site for quick purchases..There are so many ways to merchandise and so many search engines I don't think I would want to do it myself.  Pictures ..good pics are the key when I purchase patterns..also it helps if your name is already established.  Just steer me in the direction of a good designer and I am there...good luck to you and hope to see some of your patterns soon.
