This will be my very last blog post on Salihan Crafts. I’ve toyed with the idea for a while now and after much deliberation, I’ve decided that I’m ready to move on. Although I have enjoyed writing and chatting with you for the last 5 years, I think blogging and crafting in general have taken a back seat to my other interests. I don’t think I can blog as I used to. My heart isn’t in it anymore and that makes me feel that I’m not being fair to you by continuing. I don’t want you to have to read my half-assed dribble because I think we both have better things to do with our time.

Before I go, I would like to walk down memory lane and share with you the best of Salihan Crafts. Here are my Top 5 project lists which have made this journey so very fun and exciting!

I will also be closing both my Etsy shops at the end of the month. I have slashed prices to clear stock. Please visit Salihan Crafts Shop and Madu.etsy.com to grab a bargain while stocks last! All my patterns will still be available here and in Ravelry.

Thank you all very much for your amazing support over the years. I loved reading each and every one of your comments and emails. You have changed me in a positive way with your kind words. My self-confidence has grown and I’m a much happier person because of you. I hope that you will still stay in touch outside of this blog. You may add me as a friend on Flickr, Ravelry and Goodreads.

I wish you all the very best, big hugs and kisses, and may our paths cross again in the future.

Lots of love,
Salihan xoxo
