Spring is definitely in full swing around here now. Everything is in full growth mode so I thought it was time I spread my wings and did a little growing of my own.

To start with I decided I would join Instagram. I did actually sign up and try it out a long time ago but as I had a rubbish phone camera I never actually used it. However, since upgrading my phone few months ago I have slowly gotten used to the fact that I actually have a camera to hand most of the time and so I’m taking more photos than before and mudpiesandpins is now actually active on Instagram.

InstagramOf course joining yet another social media platform means I need a quick and easy way for followers to find me so I’ve designed a few social media icons for the blog, I’ve tidied up my sidebar to make space for them and got my husband to update my site a bit so that the sidebar actually appears in posts as well as on the main page.

The other new addition to the sidebar is a link to Mudpiesandpins on Craftsy, my second new venture. I have just released the first two of my EPP butterfly patterns and have several more in the works.

At the moment the patterns are free, but they will only remain so till the end of the week. My intention is to offer these and all future patterns for free for the first few days of their release, after which time I will be charging a small fee for most. I look forward to sharing plenty more of my designs in the future and hope that some of you at least will also enjoying making them.
