Every week is an adventure…and this is where I collect the week's photos, finds and lessons. Past adventures can be explored here.
Beau + Andre do this ALL the time (we call it snorgling), but this is the first time I was able to capture it.
Love the new fabric shop in town
Started a quilt
Had a party for a little bro
Love, LOVE this book
The new Heather Ross book has me dreaming of fabric design. I've devoured all the posts mentioned here, added about 100 new books to my to-read list….and started my first design last night. The lesson? It's harder than it looks, but there's nothing like a new passion to fuel my creativity!
As I'm embracing new crafts (quilting and fabric design) I'm also deep into writing a new Holiday Sanity Playbook…and the combination of making and business-thinking has me pondering how the two affect each other. How do your creative skills inform your business decisions? What skills can cross over? Do you apply your lessons-learned-while-crafting to your business adventures? Or do you keep them entirely separate? So many of my readers + students are whip-smart + confident when it comes to their craft (whether it's actual crafting, or writing, or painting)…but they're tentative about business decisions. How can I help you translate the confidence in one area to the other?
- Love the By Hand magazine!
- I spent all day Monday obsessing over this quilt. I've GOT to make one? Anyone wanna join me?
- Starship Captain Heather shared this post about the hyper-creative mind.
- I'm writing a series for Vianza about getting your online shop ready for the holidays.
