Simply Homemade Magazine interview

  • 2 min read

Live laugh love

I’ve been interviewed on the Simply Homemade magazine blog! They asked me about my process, how learning a craft a month is going, and why I started this project in the first place.

 At the end of each month I have completed a small project using the techniques I’ve learnt, and I try to make a tutorial for my readers, too. The secret is to plan for failure and mistakes. That way I have the time and patience to look back and think, where did I go wrong? Making mistakes is the fastest way to learn, and it’s important for creativity. It’s easier to bounce back if the failure is there on the schedule. It doesn’t feel like a set back.”

In other adventures, it’s still National Stationery Week! My plan for today was to share an envelope tutorial for my fellow stationery addicts. Instead of showing you myself, though, I want you to check out this wonderful tutorial by Clare of Pink Box Crafts. She makes envelopes for a living, so let a pro show you how it’s done!

Happy crafting,
Anna

  1. Anna-
    What a nice interview. You really are an inspiration. I am trying my hand at crochet right now, I am not very good, but I am giving it a try. I am making a shawl/wrap and so far it is not too bad. Thanks for sharing your crafting adventures with us. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks Patti! Good luck with the crochet shawl. I love how quick crochet builds up and have a few projects going on for the house. Hopefully they’ll be finished soon so I can share them on the blog. Hope you’ve been enjoying your weekend!

  2. Hello Anna! Thank you so much for including my tutorial on your blog post – it made my day! Hope you enjoyed celebrating National Stationery Week! Clare :-)

    1. Hi Clare, thanks for taking the time to check out my post! I loved your work for Pink Box Crafts, I’m eager to hear more about your new crafty project as it comes along. All the best!
