Pinspiration Friday {And a Big Announcement!}

For this weeks Pinspiration Friday, please head on over to Chevron Stitches.

What is Chevron Stitches? Well, it is my new blog! The Little Willow Tree has been great, it’s been a great first year, but I have outgrown the vision I had for this blog a year ago and feel that my new blog is more of a representation of who I am and what my purpose is.

It is currently undergoing a major upgrade from the fun little template that is on there now to an amazing design that will soon be revealed. {Blog design by Lauren of The Perfect Pear Design} But I promise you that what I have in store for you over at Chevron Stitches will be better than what I have offered you here.

I have thought long and hard about the decision, to move to Blogger and change the name. I’ve prayed about it too. With some great advice and encouragement from some of my best bloggie buddies and a referral to the amazing Lauren for a blog design, I decided to take that jump. Most of what has held me back is the fear of losing followers and having to rebuild everything back up again. But much like The Little Willow Tree, it will take time and the risk of losing a few of you against continuing to blog that doesn’t leave me feeling fulfilled is a risk I don’t mind taking. But I hope that if you have me bookmarked, saved on your Blogroll or Google Reader, that you will follow me over to Blogger and follow Chevron Stitches.

A lot of the reason why I chose to make the move to Blogger is to make link ups and giveaways not only easier for me, but for you too! Blogger also allows me to customize my posts better as well as the overall look and feel of the blog entirely. Another reason is its all wrapped up and tied with a bow with my Google account so the sharing ability and social networking for myself and the blog are not all over the place. I’m a bit of an organizational freak so having everything in one place for me is amazing!

I really appreciate all that you, my readers, followers, have done for me. Your support in sharing, commenting, participating and giving me feedback has been amazing. I love you guys so much! You make my love for blogging that much more amazing and I want to have all of that with you all over at Chevron Stitches.

So lets add the new blog to your bookmarks, sit back and relax for a bit. The new blog design will be ready very soon and a big, really awesome, reveal will happen. You will not be disappointed! And in the meantime, I’ll be posting over there.

Thanks, again, for all your support!
