New ideas and features coming

This week I am going to talk about some plans I have for both my Youtube channel and my website for the near future and upcoming things, and I would love to get some feedback on them. 

I am going to start out with some plans I have for my Youtube channel. I am planning on making a series of short videos with wire weaves, where I show how to do a specific wire weave in each video and it will be an ongoing series that I will be posting videos to every now and then in between my regular tutorials. I have also been thinking of another video series that I have been wanting to do for a while. Music is and always has been a very big part of my life, but it isn’t something I have brought into my jewellery making very much. So that is something I have really been wanting to do. To make different designs within different mediums that are music related. I already have a few ideas, but I would love to get some feedback on the interest for tutorials like this and also any suggestions or requests for design ideas that you might have. 

The next thing I want to talk about is my website. I have recently been expanding the features on my website by adding some free tutorials in picture and written form. So far I have focused on kumihimo tutorials, but I am planning to also start adding tutorials for macrame and wirework to my website. I plan on starting this within the next month or two and continue to add new tutorials over time. I am also planning on creating more kits that will be available for purchase like my current ‘Rainbow beaded kumihimo kit’, and this will also be within different mediums. Among these I am planning on making a kumihimo starter kit that will include all the things you will need to get started with kumihimo and beaded kumihimo and that will also be ready within the next month or two. 

I hope that you are as excited about these plans and ideas as me, and I can’t wait to bring them to you. And please feel free to give me some feedback on the ideas and let me know if you have any suggestions or requests for music related designs.

One Year on Youtube

This week I want to share a milestone with you. Yesterday was my one year anniversary on my Youtube channel, and it has been a very exciting and surprising year. I am very pleased and grateful with the growth and success my Youtube channel has had in the last year, and I am hoping for continuous growth in the future, so I can keep doing what I love doing. 

In the year that has passed I have uploaded 101 tutorials to my channel ranging between macrame, micro macrame, wirework and kumihimo tutorials, and I plan to continue to create tutorials within these mediums but also to expand into other mediums over time. 

The year in numbers:

Since beginning my Youtube channel a year ago I am well on my way towards gaining 20,000 subscribers, for which I am very happy, grateful and surprised about. That is a lot of people who have chosen to subscribe to my channel and follow my tutorials.

In total all my videos have accumulated a total number of views of well over 1,100,000 and that number is just so unbelievable. To think that my videos have been viewed over 1 million times is amazing and that I have hopefully helped inspire many people to be creative and do something they love. This really means a lot to me and makes it all worth it, as that is my main goal.

So I would just like to finish of with saying a big thank you to everyone who as supported me and for all your kind words throughout the past year, and hopefully there much more to come.

Tutorial announcement

This week I want to give everyone a heads up on a tutorial I have coming up as one of my next tutorials. It is my most requested one and I have been working hard for the past week to get the tutorial together as it is a fairly big project and I really wanted to get the tutorial right. The tutorial I have been working on is for my micro macrame tree of life, so I hope it will be good enough to help everyone that have requested it and also everyone else.

Like I mentioned it is a fairly big project to take on, but the end result is so worth the time and effort you put into it, however you would choose to make your design. But all you need to complete this project is some time, patience and a basic knowledge of macrame knots. When you first see the piece it might look complicated and intimidating, but the knots that is used are the basic macrame knots. The only complicated thing about this project is the amount of cords you are working with, but this is where the time and patience comes in, so I really hope that if you want to create your own version of this project, that you give it a go.

So here is the tutorial making in progress:

So if you are interested in this tutorial to learn how to make a micro macrame tree of life, then keep an eye out on my Youtube channel as it will be published as one of my next tutorials.
