Happy 10 year Blogiversary!

I can't believe I've maintained the FiberAntics by Veronica blog for 10 years! 

I'm not as prolific a blogger as some (I don't post daily), but I'm pleased with my diligence, consistency and the accomplishment of hitting a 10 year milestone—yep, a decade of writing! And I am happy to have this documentation of my work, experiences and progress.

Most of my blog entries feature textile, quilting, stitching, knitting and fiber art endeavors but I also post about other creative activities such as mixed media projects, Artist Trading Cards, printing, typography and the annual Easter egg coloring session that happens at our house—and the subject of my first blog post back in 2009.

A few things I've learned along the way:
  • keep making, keep learning.
  • you don't have to finish every project you start.
  • edit.
  • fix a mistake as soon as you find it. (this applies to the work as well as life)
  • take classes and teach classes.
  • take classes outside your discipline.
  • don't get down in the mud with the pigs.
  • don't waste time with the passive-aggressives, the bullies, and the jealous. Life is too short for that sort of negative energy.
  • hang out and spend time with the generous, the creative and the positive thinkers. These are the change makers! They will share and encourage without feeling insecure or expect something in return. You can be one of them, too.
  • remember we are all a WIP [work in progress].

A big Thank You to my husband, family, friends, fellow guild members, students, shop owners and industry associates who continue to inspire, share, encourage and support the textile, quilting, sewing and creative activities that I—and so many of us—love to do.

Happy 10 year Blogiversary!
