Twistie Is a Sad Sock Monkey

By Twistie

It is with a heavy heart that I have a sad announcement to make: the Maonolosphere is shutting down, and that means this is my very last post to you here on Crafty Manolo.

I still can’t quite make myself believe it, but it’s true.

This blog is very close to my heart. I love handcrafts, and I love writing, so writing about crafting has been an absolute delight for me.

But all things must end eventually, and that includes the superfantastic ones.

I will miss you all more than I can possibly say.

Still, while this is a blow, it’s not the end for me. I’ve decided to take this as the kick in the pants I needed to move onward and upward with my writing. I intend to put together a book proposal, roll the dice, and see what happens.

So stay crafty, my friends. May all your future sock monkeys be happy ones.

    I’m sorry but not at all surprised. I’ve been wondering of late how long this would continue. A successful blog has new posts almost every day. People get tired of checking every day only to find nothing. People then go away and don’t return.

    Your part of the manolospere is the only one that even tried.

    Good luck to you. I’ll miss you!

    Twistie, will you have your own independent blog? I’d follow it.

  4. Christy Says:

    I hope that you’ll start your own blog! You’ll be missed.
