Summer Creative Bucket List

Between the warming weather and reviewing April Bowles-Olin’s 101 Creative Habits (which you must check out)  I have been inspired to spend my summer creating and trying new things.  Warm weather gives me much more flexibility and inspiration for making and creation.  You can find supplies all around whether it is leaves, pretty feathers, or beautiful flowers.

I have an ongoing regular “summer bucket list” so that I make sure I don’t forget any of the fun things I want to do but here I am sharing my “creative bucket list”.  These are a few of the things I want to do to work on my creative process and keep my inspiration nice and sharp.  The first one is mine with the activities that I want to accomplish.  The second is a free printable for you!  It is blank so you can use my ideas, check Pinterest, or read the article mentioned above.  Enjoy and make the most of your summer!

Crafting Amongst Friends & My First “Rush”

http://happycoupleshop.com/2014/04/28/crafting-among…-my-first-rush/

Things are getting very exciting around here.  Its official!  My crocheted crafts are sitting in a store, ya me!  I live in New Hampshire and am soo excited to announce a great new store called Crafting Amongst Friends.  This a great little shop that features all kinds of local crafters.  This is one of those stores where you will find all those great little items that you will never find anywhere else.  From décor to jewelry to apparel and purses, they offer something for everyone!  Interestingly I heard about them from my hairdresser sister who gets all of the gossip in town.

As someone just starting out their handmade business this opportunity is very exciting for me.  I have had an Etsy shop since December and while I know that I desperately need more listings (which means more time to make) I haven’t had a lot of success.  I am determined to spend the next few months filling my shop with lots of goodies for summer, weddings, and babies.  Unfortunately none of this will happen until I have some more time to create, in about a week after finals are over.  But believe me you will be seeing some very cool things in the “summer line”.

In the meantime though my very favorite creations are being consigned in this beautiful new shop.  Seeing my items in a store is just about the coolest feeling in the world.  Now I see where the entrepreneurship “rush” and excitement comes from.  I highly recommend checking this place out if you are in the area.  Not only can you get some very cool and unique things but you are supporting your local artisans and community.  Check out Crafting Amongst Friends on Facebook or stop by at 16 Opera House Square, Claremont, NH.  You can find my Etsy shop here.

What gave you your first business “rush”?  Have you ever consigned your crafts?  How did it work out?  Please share!
