If you’re here reading this, hello! This is the start to the latest, and hopefully final, in a long line of craft blogs I’ve tried to start. They always seem to peter out eventually, because I find the whole taking pictures of my process and uploading them to the internet and then organizing a post about them thing takes away from actually making stuff. However, as I finally get more serious about showcasing my body of work, I have come to realize that a blog is quite a useful and necessary thing to have. I want to be able to show when I am actively working on things, as well as have a way to talk about my experiences as I venture out into the world of selling my work and participating in community and social events.
This website is a long time coming! I’ve dreamed for over five years now of opening an online shop to sell my handmade items and now I’ve finally made the effort to put it all together. I’ve got my shop opened, I’ve got a beginning inventory, I’ve got a nice logo (I was scared of opening up Photoshop but I finally did it and it wasn’t so bad after all!), I’ve got a website, Facebook, Twitter…business cards! I’ve got business cards! That’s how you know you’re professional.
Thank you for joining me at the beginning of this journey! I plan on posting here about shop updates, works in progress, tutorials, public appearances, and anything relevant to my life as it pertains to Illumine Artisan Works. See you soon. :)
