This blog…it is a changin’

My goal when I started this blog nearly four years ago (it will be 4 years in July) was to build a positive community for artists, makers, bloggers, and small business owners to come together under one “roof”. And now, almost 3,300 posts later, I am so tickled and proud to see just how far papernstitch has come. BUT that is not the end of this story because I have some serious aspirations for what this space can be in the future. The only things is… to get there, I need your help.

Because none of this matters without you.

I need to know what YOU want for this space moving forward.

As a quiet reader or outspoken commenter, you have helped me shape what papernstitch is today. And I would REALLY appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to fill out this super quick survey and let me know what you want to see here in the future – so you can help me shape the next four years. 🙂 AND as a thank you for your feedback, the first 500 readers to fill out this survey will be entered to win $100 cash (via PayPal) to spend on whatever you would like – that big ole print from your favorite artist, an overdue bill, new supplies for your jewelry shop, whatever you want! One winner will be chosen at random as soon as the survey reaches 500 answers or May 18th, whichever comes first, and will be notified via email at that time.

You can share your thoughts here when you fill out the survey + enter yourself to win that $100 cash prize. Yay!

P.S. Whether you decide to fill out the survey or not, thank you for being here!

P.P.S. As part of the changes to papernstitch moving forward, I’ll be dropping down to one post per day to focus on bringing you the best content possible.

I would love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to leave your feedback in the comments below if you’d prefer not to fill out the survey. Thanks!

That’s great news! I’ve done the survey 🙂


So glad you found me Stac. And thank you so much Jools for your super sweet comment. What a great thing to read today. 🙂 Much appreciated.


I recently discovered your blog. I am enjoying browsing around and look forward to repeated visits. Thanks for the survey/contest opportunity! 🙂


Brittni, I think you do the work of a dozen people — I can’t imagine juggling all the facets of papernstitch the way you do while maintaining its excellence, all by yourself! During my Etsy journey, I’ve been overloaded with blogs, shops, sites, teams, etc., and while I want to devour every bit of info that comes my way, time is of the essence. Papernstitch is a forum that fulfills so many needs for me, it’s becoming my one-stop-shop for Etsy-think. Being a part of the gallery is the cherry on top for me, and I just want to thank you for making papernstitch the user-friendly, delicious entity that it is.

And btw, the one-a-day posting is a great idea. I will definitely pay more attention this way.

Thank you, thank you!



Done. Anything to help you out. I am very appreciative of your emails.


Aw, thanks Laura for being a part of it. 🙂


Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of your dreams, Brittni!!
