It was five years ago today that I launched mightyugly.com. Five years!

Before Mighty Ugly, I was struggling through my post-crochet world without a clue as to how I’d ever find something else to do with my life.

And then the ugly took over.

Ugly has introduced me to so many new people. To new communities. To new ideas.

It’s led me on grand adventures in teaching, speaking, writing, reading and doing.

It’s my first book of words.

It’s opened up a world of art and making to me.

And I know it’s had a similar effect on many other people, too. Maybe you?

Thanks for being on this grand adventure with me. It wouldn’t be the same without you. In fact, it wouldn’t be much of anything without you.

Onward!
