Bye-bye to email updates for now! :)

Sometimes, less is more. I was knitting along and a little over a year ago, up to my eyeballs in orders and wanting to find a better way to keep in touch with you all.

So, I signed on with a software company that provided a website shopping cart, an email contact system, etc all in a package deal.  Thank you to all of you who joined up to receive my messages, I've really enjoyed being in better communication with you this past year!

BUT the software system is cumbersome to use and difficult to learn and maintain. I bit off more than I could chew and it was cutting into my time creating for you!  I'm ending my account with them.

I've saved all of my contacts (that's YOU!) in case I start sending out emails again in the future. 

For now, my online home base will be back with the handmade marketplace Etsy, where I started in 2007:

CricketsCreations (main online shop with scarves, throws AND baby props)
BabyBirdz (baby and maternity props)
CricketsHome (home decor knits such as throw blankets and coasters)

I'll also always love to hear from you on facebook.  If you haven't already, please send me a friend request! :) 

And I'm still available at or

I felt a tremendous weight lifted off of me as soon as I made the decision to cancel; I hope you can understand!  :) 

I really am a simple girl at heart who loves to bring others joy by designing unique knits with lots of color and texture.  I guess I'm not so much an online, techie, in-with-all-the-latest-business-trends type of person.  I tried on that hat and it didn't fit! ;)

Thank you again for your patience and loyalty. You truly matter to me.

See you at etsy, through email and on facebook!

You really need to do what's best for you! Doesn't it feel good when a decision feels "right"?! :)
All the best, Crickets, from Anne aka ennadoolf on Etsy, who still remembers and is thankful for all the help you gave when I joined Etsy!
