I was invited, along with many other etsians, to join a very motivation-inducing group started by the near legendary Brooke, a.k.a. Gemmafactrix. Here’s how she describes the group:
“I created this group to inspire creativity – in myself and others! The challenge is this: make something new every day for a month. You can continue on for longer, of course, but the idea is to create a new design, however simple, every day for a month. Often I get o caught up in selling my work – taking photos, packaging, shipping, updating my website – that I forget to just enjoy creating. Hopefully this group will help me – and you – do that.” 🙂
So, for the month of February, I will be trying my darndest to pop out one new item per day. Realistically, with how time-consuming my creations can be, this is going to be a tough challenge. No matter, it’s a great source of motivation.
The above purse is my Day 1 creation. It was 80% complete until an hour ago. I had yet to trim the flap. Trimming the flap takes forever!!!! I go around each and every square centimeter of that flap, neating it up with my scissors.
I dare say I’m going to have to give up eating and sleeping for the next 29 days!
