I hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start! Because this is as good a time as any to be self-reflective, I thought I’d share some thoughts on the new year for Mochimochi Land.
I don’t have any specific resolutions for Mochimochi Land, but I plan to make it an exciting year in toys! The biggest anticipation for me is my book coming out in June. Argh still six more months away! I put a lot of 2009 into working on it (and so did my awesome testers), so I hope people will enjoy it and treasure it and sleep with their arms around it. Or just enjoy it.
Of course I have plans for lots of new patterns to add to the Mochimochi Shop this year, FIVE of which I am simultaneously working on right now. (This month will see the first Tiny Things collection and a new cross-stitch pattern!) In addition to continuing to always improve at designing knitted toys, I’m hoping to get better at designing in two dimensions and convert more people to cross-stitch.
I’m planning to keep up the weekly Tiny Series for a while, but I probably can’t do it indefinitely. Or maybe I can. We’ll see!
There are a few other big projects that I’m working on that need to stay under wraps for now. Don’t you hate that? I know, I shouldn’t have said anything. Just forget that I’m working on top-secret huge exciting projects.
Oh, and John and I are putting together plans for a site redesign! I can’t say when it will be done, but our plan is to create a pretty new website that’s easy to use and has more features.
I hope you will all continue to read my blog and leave comments in 2010 if I promise to keep blogging. Let’s make it another toy-rific year together! (Sorry, but this awful pun is here to stay for another decade.)
