four hundred reasons to celebrate

I hit a milestone today. It’s not a traditional number to celebrate – 400 – but to me, it means a lot.

You see, this is what I do. This is my career, my lifestyle, my business, my love. It’s my thing.

I’m working hard to grow Threeravens into more than just a successful business – I want it to thrive. I want to make connections, I want to inspire people to create when they see what I create. I get such a thrill when I see what y’all make with my fiber and yarn! It fills me with glee, and that’s what I’d call an awesome trade.

Here’s the thing: I want to be able to pay my bills, of course – without that, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do – but what makes this more than a job, more than something that I do because it’s cool and pays the bills… is that connection to YOU.

You, my friends, are what make what I do the best job in the world. You make me grin, and feel inspired, and want to learn more about what I do. You make me want to meet you all and talk yarn and fiber and what makes you happy and where you are going in life.

You are my inspiration, and my livelihood, and the reason I am happy.

Thank you. You are all so awesome.
