Happy news for you my blog friends




Hello sweet friends,

First of all: may 2018 bring you joy, love, peace, hope, health, and many blessings.
In my previous blog post I mentioned that I have an announcement waiting for you.
Actually, there are several exciting things I'd like to share with you.




Yes, you absolutely heard that right!
I have decided not to abandon AppleApricot (well, not that this was ever my intention anyway, but it was kind of quiet here for a while) and instead give it a little extra boost. I just miss you, my blog friends here, too much if I don't spend time regularly on AppleApricot. And you have been so faithful visiting my little online home, that I can't wait to give back to you!

So, I'm busy preparing these three things (and 2018 will probably bring you one more event you will going to be very excited about, but I'm not going to tell you yet, since it is not in my power to decide in this particular case).

Let me enlighten you a little more on the three news topics:




1. Simply Neutrals Tuesday will be back!

Starting Tuesday the 16th of January

(So that's next week already).
Safe the date!

It will be in a slightly different format though.
More on that on the 16th.




2. There will be a giveaway soon!

I had planned to do a giveaway in December because of the 5th anniversary of my blog. But due to this and that I had to postpone it. I'm still busy with creating for the giveaway. So please be patient :)




3. There will be a new artist interview coming!

I'm not going to tell you just yet who I'm doing the interview with, but I'm very sure you're really going to like it! She is an amazingly creative artist and much loved by many. We're busy with the q&a's and gathering the images to add to the interview. So exciting! (And if you're the one I'm talking about: shhhh, don't tell anyone ;) 




Well, this is enough news for now I dare say.

So, first of all:

Simply Neutrals on the 16th of January

Hope you will join Simply Neutrals and see you then (= next week)!

Wishing you a blessed day.
Big hugs xx

Wen

  17. Yay! I'm so happy to know that you're continuing to blog! So many are moving over to facebook and instagram and I don't 'do' those. Happy to know that 'Simply Neutrals' is continuing too - I love seeing all the pretties that others create to show.

    1. Thank you :) And that's exactly my sentiment too, Mary Anne, I can't get myself to use the other social media platforms regularly and much prefer the blogging world. Big hugs xx

    1. It's going to be fun, I promise :) It never was a huge party with a large following here at AppleApricot (though it was when similar parties were held on other blogs), but here it was a cozy small group of lovers of all things neutral-coloured which gathered to share with each other. And I loved these gatherings so much, that I want to re-introduce the party. Hope you can join too!

  19. Dearest Wen, I'm elated to know that YOU, your incredible inspriration and treasured friendship (though we've never met) will go on! In the time I've been following you, you have brought me so much of the joy, delight and inspiration I had needed and still need in my life! How happy I was to have opened my email and see there was one from "Apple Apricot"! Forgive me my late response , I've been ill with the flu, it just won't give up its hold on me. Reading your post about all of the new and exciting things you have planned for your followers has been excellent medicine for me! Wishing you continued success and a most blessed and peaceful New Year.
