  • Hello everyone!

    Hello everyone! I'm new to this brilliant forum. I work fulltime, but love anything creative. I'm a bit of a of dabbler in all things crafty, but I want to start to sell bits and pieces just to save a bit for xmas, birthdays etc. So what I need is a focus!! My trouble is I have too many ideas! I do like textile work though, and making cards from scratch using found items etc. Any wise words would be welcome! Thanks x

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    You'll find lots of ideas through browsing the forums and chatting to people. It's hard for someone else to point you in the right direction as it's got to be right for you and only you can decide that - but keep dabbling and your "style" will win through eventually.

    I'm also one of those who has far too many ideas. I keep sketch pads and scribble down ideas as they come - then I can go back to it at a later date and either have a go or put it to one side again!

    Using found items is really trendy just now - the upcycled element of making is really popular. It will make your work different and unique, too, which is always good!

    I look forward to seeing some of your work!

      Hi & welcome to the forum from me too!

      I agree with Wendy and its all about finding a niche or a style, there are many crafters on here that make various items covering a whole range of different crafts.

      You will know what works for you as you try it and go along!

      Look forward to chatting and seeing some of your makes.
