Simply Homemade Magazine interview

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,
