Sometimes it's essential to break your boundaries, think out of ordinary. When making craft as a business it's not necessarily easy though. I mean a lot of things need to get done, get them ready and get them out to the world. Everything takes time, often you need to take care of it all just by yourself. Even though every self-employed person probably nods her/his head with me, the best part of this whole game is being independent but it is also the hardest part all the same: want it or not producing part can sometimes (or should I say often) be greater than the creative part.
I'm so grateful for Renate of Kreativlink! She's hosting a weekly challenge theme of my Etsy team this week. She wanted us to make something we haven't made before by using other technique one usually uses. I assembled a little object that can be used as a fridge magnet. It's made from a vintage metal coaster. I have added a layer of chalkboard paint on it, tied a bow with a piece of lace, sewed a few beads these and adhered them on the coaster and of course added a magnet on the back. It measures just about 9 cm in diameter so only essential things can be written in this small space. What do you think about it? This project made me really happy! You can see all entries right here.
