early retirement... and new beginnings!

Alas, I feel the time has come for the podcast to come to an end. I have so enjoyed sharing what I created with all of you over the past two years and getting to know viewers near and far, but I feel it's time for a change. 62 is the age of early retirement, yes? ;-)

I'll still be sharing my crafty projects and my adorable (if I do say so myself)  furry kids over on Instagram - find me as simplystashless if you haven't already! I'm also simplystashless on Ravelry if you're a knitter, crocheter, spinner and/or weaver. =)

Some craftiness and everything else I'm up to will also be appearing on my new blog at:
starting today! If you'd like to continue to follow the blog, please update your feeds to reflect the new address. simplystashless.com will soon point you to the new blog as well. 

All podcast episodes will remain available on the YouTube channel. I currently have none planned, but occasional new videos may appear there as well, though not as a sit-down podcast like before. =)

Please know that I have appreciated all the encouragement and support from all of you these past couple of years and would love to keep in touch! I hope to see many of you over on the new blog. Until then...

Craft what makes you happy! =)
