Ooops! this was supposed to be published yesterday! Sorry!
So, the time went by and I was still "planning" my big entrance into the world of Crafting Business. In the meantime, I've attended two art workshops, for teachers in elementary school. This and that. I've needed this break. I mean, I've needed an excuse to be crafty again, even if it meant doing just simple little projects for kids. With my day job and all of the stress, I haven't had the time to do or even think of anything creative. I was feeling really sad about it and like I was drifting away from my real goal. And this has been the truth. I've been occupied with all these irrelevant stuff and I was leaving behind my childhood dream, plus I haven't made anything for a long-long time.
So, I've decided to take more action. I've registered to Tell Your Story Online Art Journal Class and then also to Red Velvet Summer Camp. At least I would be motivated to be more creative again. It's been a challenge but a fun one. Slowly but steadily, my creativity began to be awakening. I've started experimenting again and I've discovered another field that I've never tried before (but I've always wanted to try it) SEWING!
I can't say that I'm that good already,
but I'm really trying and it's so fascinating!
I've also made my first listing on Etsy (after A WHOLE YEAR! on May 20 2010) but that was it. Too "chicken" to continue.
This Summer I've decided to do many things.
I've joined Red Velvet Summer Camp
and I also wanted to expand my skills so, I've registered for Home Ec and I was determined to learn how to sew, although I've failed to keep up with the schedule. I'll improve, I'm sure!
In August my bob-boy's cousin Dorita and her boyfriend Michalis came for their vacation here from Athens and we hanged out a lot! They are both so creative and inspiring and they have always been pushing me towards my creative dream because they really believe in it. So, they've put me into action. This Autumn, I HAVE TO do something about it, starting with my Etsy shop. Yes, I know, I haven't done much until now, but we are still on the progress. (Give me some credit, I had a tough Summer this year. This Summer Camp has worn me out!)
First of all, I've changed my blog's layout
and also my Etsy shop's banner
so that it matches with my blog.
I'm not yet satisfied with my tag line though.
I've started developing more a series of characters-products that I've been planning for years and I've also started discussing some ideas about some other side projects with other two "creative souls". In time I'll share all of them here so that you can tell me your opinion about them. I think that I'm finally moving towards the right direction and it feels so good!
Wish me Luck!
