Trying To Get Back To Normal ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am slowly trying to get back to normal again with Todolwen. I never would have thought that it would be something I would find difficult just over a week ago but it is a little. I think I am just still in shock over what happened.
One thing I forgot to mention is that I now have a Pinterest page too so you can follow me on there if you wish. It is ...

... 'Todolwen by Karen B.'.
 I don't have too many pins just yet but that will change fast.
If you would like to follow it, just click on the little icon button on my right sidebar and you can see all the things I like. My bloglovin' and facebook button are located there too.

I was asked to explain what I exactly did to make things go wrong so I will try and do so.

I changed my URL which is the web address to your blog (www....) and the link every follower has saved. I had added a few new words to my old URL/link and now I realize (and only now), that because it was changed nobody could find me anymore, which meant that my follower button had stopped working and that I had lost all of my lovely bloggers and they had lost me. The worst thing about it is that once it is done there is no going back!

So what ever you want to do ... if it involves something with changing things in your blog settings ... ask someone like Karen Valentine for advice before you do so. I thought I had read enough information and look what happened to my blog.

Also ....

... I am adding my granny heart tutorial now to my tutorial page tomorrow for all of you lovely bloggers to use.

 Thank you to all of you that took the time to e-mail me and ask for the pattern ~ you were all so sweet and kind for doing so.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. Hi Karen, Happy Thanksgiving, I am glad that things are coming back for you. I have had our friend Karen help me more then once. She does a beautiful job of designing. I may pick back up crocheting again, but right now it is more embroidering to take care of my orders. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  2. I love to see your posts...your creations are unique and lovely. Thanks for coming back!!!

  3. Hi Karen, for some reason when I put in the new address it keeps coming up no such blog. Yet when I click on from Dawn's page there you are at that address!!! I don't get it...I can't imagine what kind of horrible things I could do if I had a blog.. which I don't and never will. Glad it all worked out in the end.

  4. Welcome back to bloglandia. Thank you for sharing your heart with us...and the how-to. Creative Bliss...

  5. It must have been so scary, I would have cried buckets. Thank goodness Karen V. managed to rescue you. Lovely to see the heart pattern being added to your tutorial page. Thank you for that. x

  6. So good to have you back Karen!

  7. thanks for the words of wisdom, good to know how quick a change can spiral into darkness.
