Twinkie Chan Guest Column in Simply Crochet Magazine Issue 67

A reader kindly let me know that my 3rd and final guest column for Simply Crochet Magazine is out now in the UK and online! Info on how to get your copy is here. I downloaded the Zinio version for my desktop!

The magazine editor usually asks me to write about what is currently inspiring me. As you may know, I’m working full-time now as the social media manager for a local company that designs women’s clothing, bags, and home accessories. I have much less time and energy to crochet than I ever could have imagined. My inspiration for the article was: LACK OF TIME. And how to fit crochet into your busy life. The article also notes that you can find bento buddy patterns in my Etsy shop. THIS IS MY PLAN. But they are not in there yet. My plan was actually to have in them in the shop before the holidays, but it just didn’t happen. My friend Candace is helping me design a booklet for the bento buddy patterns. She showed me a sample AND IT WILL BE SO CUTE. It’s gonna be worth the wait. I just have a few big projects I need to get out of the way first (something with the Craft Yarn Council, and a private commission), and then I will do my best to get back into the crochet seat for 2018. It’s been a rough transition, but I’m doing my best and also trying not to stress myself out… which is tough for a workaholic and perfectionist. Giving myself a break is not a forte of mine, but I know it’s important too, sometimes.

Ok, rant over! Thanks for your patience! More crochet soon, I promise!

    Congratulations Twinkie!!! I loved your other two columns ❤️ Your creativity is very interesting and inspiring. The Bento Buddies are super cute and very worth waiting for. Finding time to crochet and feeling creative is very difficult when you have other commitments. It happens to all of us, so don’t feel bad about it. Being you is enough❤️

    Hi Ms. Twinkie, I know transition is hard, but change is good. So, hang in there because something great is about to happen and if you have any new projects I will be looking out on your blog. Thank you and God bless to you and your family.
