The cat's out of the bag and wearing a lace necklace!

How dorky is this illustration?? :) 

I knew it would happen one day...

The day before my lace necklaces went live on Open Sky, I read Hilary from Diary of Doers' (who is awesome, by the way) post asking bloggers whether or not their friends and family know they blog. For me the answer was NO. Sure my mom is one of my regular readers - she says she learns more from my blog than from talking to me. I know my husband checks it out from time to time, even though I think he should read it EVERY DAY. There are a few people that know about it, but really not that many. I never post links on my personal facebook page or tweet from my personal twitter account. I do pin things on Pinterest but I hardly think anyone clicks through.

I sort of liked my "secret blogger life". I liked the friends I have made in the blogging community and I liked having a creative outlet.

But now that "secret life" is over...and I'm okay with it.

With the announcement of my Open Sky feature, it seems people now know that I not only make necklaces, but that I have a blog. They found it and they are reading it. They've given me some great feedback which makes me feel good. Maybe I shouldn't have been "hiding" for so long...

So as I said above, the cat's out of the bag*...and she's looking fab wearing a lace necklace!
*If you want a brief history of the origins of that weird phrase - read this article! It's a weird story... 

If you want to look fab too, check out the lace necklace Open Sky sale and support CWAK by buying one! If anything, I would LOVE it if you could at least go to the link and click on the heart to "LOVE" an item and show me some LOVE! Who knows...if you let me know you did that in the comments below, I might just pick a random person and send them their own lace necklace... :)

Oh and check out this awesome feature on Glamour.com...so exciting!!

Until tomorrow...

    1. Thanks Amy! It was fun as a secret but it's still fun now. I am amazed at how many people actually do that!

  2. Most people in my life don't know about my blog either other than my parents, sister, and hubby. I think having the cat out of the bag is a good thing because it will totally help grow your business!
