I’m glad you’ve joined me here. Just like you, I wanted to do arts and crafts for a long time, but didn’t get the chance, or opportunity, made excuses, etc., and I didn’t start for a long time. Yet, as I got older, I thought ‘Will I have any regrets at the end of my life?’ I did. I knew I would regret not pursuing my art and craft dream.
So, I took my first step and I started my art and craft journey…. and I documented it. I am continuing to document it so that it can help you too.
I want to share the steps I took on my journey with you, so that you can take the steps to pursue your art and craft dream.
I want to help you organise your art and craft stash, or source what you need on your art and craft journey.
I started with a stash of arts and craft supplies. I sorted through my time, space and organised my supplies so that I could use them to get the art and craft results I wanted. I’ve been blogging about it since 2019.
I want to help you organise yourself, so that you can think about what art and craft is best for you at this stage in your life.
As I moved on my art and craft journey, one of the biggest hurdles I found was the application of colour to my art and craft projects. These were drawings, knitting and sewing. It was manageable to make a monochromatic piece, but when more than 2 colours were applied – well. That’s when things became difficult. What colours do go together? What colours are harmonious?
I had to learn about applying colour – particularly, with coloured pencils.
You can consider the colours in your art and craft supplies and how you can apply them to your creations.
I want to help you with your art and craft colour choices.
Being thrifty is about managing your money, and your time. I want to help you to be thrifty in your art and craft.
Over the years, I had gathered a stash of art and craft supplies. I had unfinished projects and other supplies that I had never used. Yet, I really wanted to do something with art and craft – and I didn’t want to waste them.
I spent months organising my stash. I don’t want you to have to spend months, weeks, or even days, trying to figure out how to sort your art and craft stash.
Do you want to spend hours figuring out what colours belong in family groups, or what colours are harmonious together? Do you need to lose creative focus by referring back to your hard copy charts?
You can use the interactive colour charts I developed to help you save your time, so that you can quickly search and sort the colours that you need in your artwork.
Pursuing an art and craft passion is not cheap. It can squeeze your budget the more you see what you enjoy, and the more you want to do it.
I want to help you to understand pricing.
I want you to consider if you need to use higher grade materials for shorter life projects. I want to show you that you can get lots of colours from a few pencils, and to organise less expensive pencils so you can use them to develop techniques and understand colour.
It can sometimes be lonely on this journey. It can be hard. I want to help you connect with others like you.
I took a first step. I want to help you take your first step. I want you to keep taking them.
I want to help you to pursue your art and craft dream.
You are worth it!
