Then vs Now Instagram

I don't know how many of you use Facebook, but there has been a trend recently where people posted their first ever Facebook profile Picture along side their most recent profile picture to see how they've aged. Well I thought i'd do a bit of a twist on this trend. SO here is my first ever Instagram post along side my latest one (I am currently writing this draft on Jan. 21) to show my progress.

I want to feature all kinds of makers, not just crocheters and knitters, to bring the maker community together so we can support and spread the word about handmade items. #supporthandmade

Below is what I have come up with so far. I may alter the questions going forward depending on input from readers and makers.

Welcome to the KGC Blog

Be sure to check out my About Me section to learn a little bit more about Knotty Gurl Crochet.

but I am hoping to use this blog to not only showcase my love of crochet but my love of many other crafts and hobbies (which I will delve into momentarily).
