I’m finishing up an amazing online class taught by Kelly Rae Roberts called Flying Lessons. It’s about building a creative business and the course content has given me a super charge every day for the last 5 weeks. So much to think about!
One recurring theme on the class ‘boards’ was people expressing concern about being ready, about having it all together (whatever it may be for each of us… we are a varied lot of writers, artists, quilters, painters, photographers, jewelry makers, etc.) There are so many possibilities to consider besides the blog… websites, online and offline shops, craft shows, publications, etc.
Kelly suggested there will never be a time when all our ducks are in a row… we should just start. Her words: “Embrace your starting point!” With that in mind, I had fun stepping away from the learning and making this page for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week. I made this while watching the bold backgrounds chapter of Kate Crane’s new dvd… what a treat that is! Kate shares loads of tips and techniques and I learned a ton watching it.
Hard to pick a ‘favorite’ but I count Dylusions Ink Sprays and stencils as some of my all-time faves. The arrows are a fun mix of chipboard, stamps, stencils, and rub-ons. And going with progress not perfection, I didn’t freak out when I stamped one of the letters wrong. It’s all okay!
My starting point is expanding as I am working to open at Etsy shop. It’s quite a learning curve and I’m looking forward to figuring it all out!
As always, my sincere thanks for your support and encouragement… I read each and every comment and truly appreciate your taking the time to visit.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend…
