Big Announcement!

A few days ago I posted on my Facebook page that I had an announcement to make along with this picture of Thunder’s feet on a rug.  It led to some crazy speculations about what the announcement could be, with guesses including: getting a puppy, moving to a new city, getting a comic book publishing deal, and having a baby.  None of those things are happening.  I feel silly now, I didn’t really think how me saying I had an announcement paired with this picture would look.  I just wanted to show off a darling picture of Thunder and generate some interest.

Needless to say, lesson learned!  Next time I’ll post something more like this:

And so, finally my big announcement: Its time for my annual birthday sale!  Not nearly as big as the speculations, but a really big deal to me.  I’m another year older (and wiser), EKRA (est. May 2004) is another year older, and I like to take this time of year to say thank you to all my supporters! I have an incredible network of supporters: my husband, my family, my fellow small business owners, and of course, my customers and fans!  This was an especially difficult year for me with my arm pain and nerve damage.  I’ve given myself and have been presented with challenges over the last 9 years, from traveling to far away craft shows, to attending craft business conferences, to moving to a new town where supplies are limited, to altering my product line.  But the challenge of taking a step back from my work to heal was the hardest.  I’m happy to report that I’m taking care of my arm, crocheting more responsibly, and hope to be making rugs for years and years.  I’m so lucky because I really do love what I do.
