MarchMeetTheMaker Day 22: What I’m Proud Of This has a two part answer - I’m proud of myself just for pursuing the creative journey that started a year ago when I discovered acrylic fluid painting. I tend to have perfectionist tendencies and high personal expectations which sometimes make it hard for me to try something new, because what if I’m not good at it?? ☺️ But the very nature of fluid painting has helped me to learn to let go and just follow the process, which has been very calming for me at times. That being said, I’m both proud and humbled to have created art that someone else has liked enough to purchase for display in their home! Pictured is the first painting I sold :)

Day 22: Proud Of. Although I've done more complicated projects and projects that took so much longer, for some reason this one stands out as one I'm the most proud of. I just love the mix of yarns and how elegant it turned out (almost all kudos for that go to the pattern designer!) I was so pleased I went on to make more and will return to the pattern again! marchmeetthemaker knittersofinstagram knittersofravelry knitting

I just recently got the news that my DBA is filed and my paperwork with the city is official! 🤗 I used to feel horrible that it took me so long to finally get on Etsy and get selling but now I see that all of the time spent working and not selling were so important for my process and growing as a creative 🥰 baby steps are everything✨ handmade diy craftsposure instaart handmadeisbetter etsy etsyseller etsyshop etsyhandmade fiberart makersgonnamake makersmovement marchmeetthemaker2019 meetthemaker

Day 21 of marchmeetthemaker is throwback. I used to make jewellery, and that's where 'Little Rays of Sunshine by Rachael' started! Around 4 years ago I started making charm based jewellery which led to me playing with resin and falling in love! I designed my own original pieces with candles shavings, nail polish and glitter for colour. These were my biggest sellers but not enough unfortunately :( I love pastel colours and anything cute! I also used to play around with polymer clay to make my own little cartoons (I even have an owl tattoo in this style on my ankle!). I've always drawn cartoons with big cutest eyes so making these was such a delight 😍 shame it didn't go anywhere but it definitely set me up for the bigger picture! If only I knew about the skills I have now back then! meetthemaker craftsposure crafter cartoons polymerclay sculpey fimo resin original ideas unique supportsmallbusiness cute love likeforlike elephant lion teddy bear throwback craftwork resinart picoftheday

marchmeetthemaker Day 22 - Proud Of | the fact that I’m taking a first big step putting my stuff out there on IG. Social media is a must to market your small business and I have to grit my teeth to do it because I fear the “what ifs” and imagine the worst. I’ve been learning to acknowledge the moments of self-doubt and work to soften it. I don’t fight the bad feeling, I’m not trying to cover it up or remove it. I try to balance it out. I soften the harshness I’ve put on myself and move on with what I’ve set out to do. Don’t give up, keep going.

marchmeetthemaker day 22 - proud. I'm proud of myself for this. Both of the quality of the fabric that I'm managing to produce, and the fact that I'm back on the loom at all. Early in my weaving, I was overly ambitious and got myself deeply discouraged. I don't always find it easy to bounce back from such disappointments, and getting back to my loom is an achievement for me. meetthemaker weaving rigidheddleloom rainbow fiberart fiberartist yarn

Day 22 of marchmeetthemaker prompt is something to be proud of In all honesty, I take SO much pride in the candles I create. I’ve spent countless amounts of time researching, creating, and testing the candles I make. I take pride in knowing I’m using 🇺🇸 grown and processed soybean wax, phthalate and paraffin free oils, and organic cotton braided wicks. No dyes, preservatives, or metals go into my candles Those of you who’ve taken a candlemaking class or have stopped to chat about candles with me know I’m passionate about educating people on the difference between healthy vs. unhealthy in terms of candles Have any candle related questions? I’m always happy to chat wax ☺️ 📷 moodist_ duluthmn allnatural soycandles themoreyouknow americangrownsoy paraffinfreecandles cleanburningcandles minnesotamakers northshoremn

Ok! So I’m a little behind with marchmeetthemaker but hey ho, onto day 20 and it’s all about the *Design process* . Here’s the thing, I’m not sure I’ve really got one yet. As a hobbyist I’m all about experimenting with new shapes and as I have a full time job it’s harder to commit to a plan as life gets in the way! 🤨 . But a little about design - I tend to start scratching shapes, nothing too snazzy, just different outlines of forms I could try. Then from there I give it a go on the wheel, maybe I’ll through 3 types of plant pots for example and will settle on a particular style. Or these cups, for the past year I’ve been trying out beakers - these guys are stackable! 👍🏼 . I think once my website has been refreshed I’ll start being more design process focused and start doing shop openings. For now though, I’ll play it more by ear pottery pots ceramics potterywheel throwingonthewheel homewares makersgonnamake potter clay stoneware

Day 22 of the marchmeetthemaker2019 challenge is “proud of”. I went back over photos of pieces I have made, but eventually settled on this : I originally joined my lapidary club for access to the equipment and collective minds for the ‘allied craft’ of silversmithing. It took a few years, but I finally started to learn cabbing. This was my first fancy. Not competition worthy, but I love it and of course am proud of learning a new skill and making something so shiny! Love malachite and have it stashed for when design inspiration hits for it to be transformed into its next phase of life! 🤗😅💚 . marchmeetthemaker proudof malachite learningbydoing australianmetalsmith howitsmadematters brisbanemaker biografidesign

ooakdiaries: lessonlearned. Ha. Where do I start? As a self-taught artist, who is making stuff up as I go along, with no instruction manual or “rules”, I learn new lessons every day. Every hour maybe. Here’s one: how to address the backs of my pieces. I know it’s the front that matters, but I’ve been working on finding a way to make the resin lake translucent but not transparent. I’m getting closer every time to figuring out the best way to make this happen, but every day is a new lesson. This I am grateful for! ❤️ resinart artmaps map mapart madebyme makersmovement marchmeetthemaker

😊 marchmeetthemaker Day 22: proud of 😊 • One of the things I'm most proud of is having my patterns published in handmademagaus 🙂 Sadly they're no longer publishing But I've kept each issue that I was in 😅 • And one of the crochet items I'm most proud of is my 'Sprinkles' blanket! It's so simple & a great way to practice different granny squares. I'm getting around to putting the pattern up on my blog - soon But I think I love the yarn and colours the most! • I used Passioknit "Electric Beat" from spotlightstores for the granny squares (which, sadly, I think has been discontinued?! Please tell me I'm wrong) & the amazing manosdeluruguayyarns 'Maxima' that I found at morrisandsons to join it all together ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 • But, overall, I'm just proud of how far I've come! From not know how to crochet only a few years ago, to designing my own crochet items, to starting a blog (with a 6-7 month old! 😐🙄😅) I'm happy to say that I'm proud of myself for putting myself out there, & I'm excited for what the future holds 😊 • What are proud of?

It's catch up time, Design process and throw back! My design process when it comes to resin is to start with the flowers or leaves. I find leaves that I like and design around it. I've tried drawing out my ideas before hand but that doesnt work as well for me. I mostly go with the flow and design and make in one sitting.

marchmeetthemaker 23.Top tip or advice: I think my best advice is to just create. It doesn’t really matter what the medium is, the creating grows your creative skills and your self confidence and your sources of inspiration. I did this oil painting in the early days of my artistic journey, when I was focusing on oil painting and experimenting with techniques - using thick paint , a palette knife and leaf prints - after a trip to Vietnam. I use the techniques I learned in that painting today, when I use layering, prints, mixed media, the inspiration of trips , collage and nature. No creative experience is ever a failure. Everything contributes to future works in ways you may not perceive at the time. The experience may be on your own, in a class or workshop or in a collaboration. It may be in another medium. It may be considered craft, art, a failure, a success, but every piece you create is the culmination of other creative experiences.

Also,(swipe) these other jewelry pieces I did a while back, which belong to some very talented creatives (check them all out)and lastly in the gem kick I was on, is the set of twelve birthstones I created for our family calendar.

REPOST OF THE DAY megthemaker THANKS FOR THIS AMAZING PICTURE Day 22 of marchmeetthemaker is “proud of” I’m quite proud of this hoop, not only because I actually sold a few different versions of her (the original had a pencil and paintbrush instead of knitting needles and yarn- this was a customized version of her) but also because she was one of the first times I started using this thicker outline stitch (which I think looks WAY better and have used ever since) and also because she was one of my first “tattoo ladies” that I’ve come to think of as an extension of my personal stitching style. Just looking at this makes me want to whip up some more of her!🖤✨ megthemaker embroidery embroideryart embroideryartist stitch handstitched stitchart hoopart embroideryhoop handmade supporthandmade xstitchersofinstagram psimadethis makersmovement modernmaker creativelife makerlife tattoolady tattooinspired linework traditionaltattoolady traditionaltattooinspired americantraditionaltattoo craftybitch marchmeetthemaker2019 marchmeetthemaker megthemaker embroidery embroideryart ALL THE REPOST IS AGREE FROM THE OWNER OF PICTURE megthemaker

Day 22 of MarchMeetTheMaker is “Proud of” In regards to my work, I have to say I’m most proud of the commitment to give back, by donating a portion of our sales to The Surfrider Foundation. I believe in what they do, and I believe that every bit helps. We have a lot to do when it comes to taking care of our environment, especially our oceans. If I can do my small part to help out, I’m pretty proud of that. And the second photo is of two little people that I’m always proud of. Our amaze me every day. They’re kind, sweet, empathetic, and care deeply for the world around us. They pick up leaves on the way home from the bus, commenting that we can put them in our compost. They rescue worms from the sidewalk and get them into dirt to give them a fighting chance. And they understand the importance of giving back. It’s such a joy watching them grow up.

Proud of | Day 22 of MarchMeetTheMaker This picture of my booth is from my furthest show, the first show I went to all alone, and a show I didnt make it into on the first cut. 💔 A month after I left my full time job (and three weeks before The Hip Handmade Market), I got an email saying they had an opening! They were able to squeeze me in and would I be able to make it there (7 hours away from me) on short notice? Yes! 🎉💃 The terror set in when I didn't have anyone that could make the trip with me. I still decided to go, I booked a hotel room for myself, in a place I'd never been. That trip AND show changed my life! I stepped out of my comfort zone and continued to work towards my ultimate goal. By traveling alone- I made friends with other makers, makers who I am friends with still to this day!

DAY 22 of marchmeetthemaker : Proud of. This ☝🏼 I’m proud that I have a successful little business that I run entirely on my own. I do all the things, while also momming 2 wild boys, being a wife, working an intense part time teaching job, and maintaining a home. 😅 It’s hard, I work hard and I’m tired a lot of the time. But I’m loving all the things that I do, and this little shop is a daily blessing to our family, and gives us more time together.

I took the photo (which was cropped for the painting) during a family vacation. It was my first successful cloud painting, and I think the ocean and sand turned out pretty realistic too.

Something I'm proud of for marchmeetthemaker today getting a professional look! I love handmade items and I'm not against a small flaw or two, but getting that professional look and quality is key for me. I label every item I make with my name, so I make sure I'm proud of it! I have been waiting on this overlock foot for my machine so I can get that professional look without a serger. I picked it up today so I can finally work on the shorts that go the tunic sets I'm making for summer. The foot is super easy to use, and I love the finished look it gives to the seams! fawnandbearbabyboutique lindysuesews sewinglife bernina handmadeforlife handmadeshorts momboss momtepreneur craftshowprep

LEATHERSMITH- Part 5⁣ ⁣ At what point can you start calling yourself an artist? Or in my case a leather smith? I feel like that title must come with some prerequisites, right?⁣ -you have to be at least 60 years old⁣ -have giant manly hands from years of work on a ranch⁣ -own an old worn out hat that was passed down from your grandpappy⁣ ⁣ Although I am 26 going on 70, own a pretty cool hat, & did spend my summers at a ranch camp, I still really struggle with claiming this as my art. ⁣ ⁣ It started a few years ago when I wanted to make Zach a Christmas gift. He had a journal that he would write in, especially while traveling, so I thought I’d make something simple & craft a cover for him. I met a man in Bend who worked with leather, asked him what tools I needed, the cost of leather, & where to buy it all. Instead he said, “how about I just teach you how to make one, that way you can decide if it’s something worth investing into.” He gave me the materials and spent hours walking me through it. I remember finishing it and being so annoyed that I had to wait until Christmas to give it to Zach- I was just so excited! ⁣ ⁣ I was hooked, but broke, so for my birthday Zach surprised me with all of the tools I needed to make leather goods on my own. I fell in love with working with my hands to create functional pieces of art. You better believe that anytime a birthday or holiday came up I was making something out of leather to practice my skills. (Sorry family, you are going to be decked out in full on chaps by the time I’m through.) ⁣ ⁣ Fast forward to my dream of living in a van & making leather goods. There was a moment when I was creating this Instagram account and had to select a title for myself. Blogger? Nope. Zookeeper? Maybe. Artist? The doubts flooded in. This was my sink or swim moment. I clicked artist and now I’ve got to make this thing work. Because I’m stubborn. And I really like my hat. ⁣ ⁣ So here is a shameless plug for my site (link in bio.) I’ll be releasing small batches of art at a time & my newsletter subscriber will get first dibs. ⁣ ⁣ ☼☼☼⁣ Today’s listen: Miles from hOMe by joeyenglishmusic ⁣ Photo by: tioaventurabus

marchmeetthemaker Day 15 - Motivation/Goals What motivates me? These 3 idiots! Every day I strive to do & be the best that I can for these 3 beautiful humans! I do what I do, for them. I want my to see first hand that with hard work & determination, you can achieve anything! I want to see the pride that I look at my husband with, reflected back at me. He has achieved so much with his business & he never stops working to make it bigger & better. These 3 wonderful, funny, gorgeous, clever people make me, a better me! I’m also motivated by my own stubbornness. I won’t be beaten & I don’t give up. I may throw a huge paddy (as my mum would say!) but I’ll always get the job done. And my goals? In the short term, I would love to achieve a silver at cake international, I want to learn new skills and techniques - airbrushing especially. I want to push myself to try making a sculpted/bust cake. I’m entering more collaborations & I’m part of a team competing at a show in May, I’d love for us to come away with something. I also want to increase my wedding bookings (not too much though!) In the long term, I want to be the go to cake business in my town. I want to achieve a Gold at cake international. I would also like to push myself out of my comfort zone and enter an industry based awards. Bake To The Future has already become so much more than I ever imagined, I’ve achieved a huge amount in the last 3 years but it has made me hungry for more. I genuinely believe that Bake To The Future has massive potential & it could be hugely successful. But, I worry some times that I’m not the right person to get it there. It’s difficult when you feel that your brand is better than you are as a maker. My self confidence needs work which is one of my many, more personal goals. The end goal has been the same for the last 18 months. I want a shop. I honestly feel that if I never make it out of my home kitchen, I’ll have failed. I might never make it happen but I will continue to push myself, work hard & build my business to ensure that there is the absolute best chance possible to make it happen. (As a side note,the need to eat also massively motivates me!😁)

Regram CIA member allthingspaper⠀ .⠀ Today’s marchmeetthemaker prompt is Motivation/Goals.⠀ ⠀ I stay motivated because I enjoy what I do whether it’s designing a new how-to project, interviewing an established paper artist or crafter, or featuring the work of an emerging artist on my blog.⠀ ⠀ Where do I see myself in five years? With any luck still creating original designs. I have enough projects on hand for another book, so that’s a possibility. I’ve also been toying with the idea of hosting a podcast it’s just the inkling of a thought at the moment though. Would you listen?⠀ ⠀ This image is a marriage certificate I quilled for a Virginia couple. The scrollwork later became my blog header. (Lettering collaboration with rivabrowncalligrapher.) The bride requested a quilled chandelier be placed center top of the large sheet (22x30 inches). Swipe to see. It was one of the most challenging requests I’ve taken on there are no do-overs on a project like this one!

Day 22: Proud of Beware more cheesiness is about to go down Well I guess, I am proud of myself. Proud of myself for not giving up, for always challenging myself and wanting to learn more. There were times where I wanted to give up. So. Many. Times. But I just kept going even when I wasn’t really sure where I was going, which can be a little uninspiring at times. When you push yourself through the uncomfortableness I usually find myself pleasantly surprised with the outcome. I’m sure y’all know what I’m talking about. Speaking of which I have pushed myself to reopen my Etsy shop after 2 years hiatus! I have a couple greeting cards listed at the moment! More fun items to come!

Day 22- Proud Of- what are we proud of? Well first I’m proud of my sister for accomplishing so much and always working to grow and learn. I’m thankful for how far we’ve come in this little business endeavor. It’s been a fun journey and continues to stretch me creatively. I suppose If I were to state what I was most proud of for this past year it would be how far our presentation has come. Not only the products we provide but also the little extra things we’ve been able to invent to make an order super special for someone marchmeetthemaker2019 watercolor present handmadefont shopsmall smallbusiness handmade create makersmovement day297 day297of365 yearofdocumentation art picaday instadaily packaging gifts sisters needleart woolwork bunny papercraft packaging felted marchmeetthemaker origami handdrawn

March Meet the Maker challenge: 22 - Proud of This was a hard one! I'm not sure what I'm proud of in my creative work I did appreciate my recent work for last year's miniature fair though! Every year I feel like I'm improving a little I guess I'm proud when a sewing student comes into my studio to learn how to sew, and 2-4 hours later they can literally go home and sew something! That's pretty cool. I also appreciate the fact I can pay rent + my bills. I'm probably most proud of myself for taking the "full time plunge" I think. I'm proud of myself for showing up to fairs + markets, having the audacity (haha perhaps 'confidence'!?) to think that maybe people might like and even buy my work While I'm on a roll, I guess I'm also proud of all my online sales. I honestly can't believe they're coming daily now.

Current WIP! I've been wanting to create more one-of-a-kind items and really make each purse/bag an individual piece of art😍 of course they'll have similar themes but they will be more unique this way! I've missed out on all the marchmeetthemaker posts, but one thing I am really proud of is being able to help you creeps stand out with these bags🖤🖤🖤🖤

MMTM Day 22- Proud Of: There are lots of things I’m proud of, but this globe is at the top of my list right now. It was a beast to saw in half and I knew I would regret cutting it if my vision was a flop. Luckily, I’m extremely happy with the end result and all the work put into it was worth it! This half is already listed in my Etsy and if anyone wants to brainstorm with me what to do with the other, unfinished half Id love to hear your ideas below marchmeetthemaker meetthemakerchallenge onemanstrashisanothermanstreasure upcycledcraft repurposeddecor upcycleddecor handpaintedglobe vintageglobes vintageglobe vintagefresh worldglobe framedingreen

Day 21: Proud Of - I am incredibly proud of the work we’re doing at the mqtartistcollective. Opening a gallery space, showing our work across the city, donating to local non-profits, and providing a fun, accessible touchstone for UP artists over the past year (plus!) has been a wild ride. There have been hiccups and hard times, but overall, we’ve pushed ourselves and our art immensely. I’m so proud of us. 💕 sg_fine_arts charley_lakes_studio sabrinaleighstudios melissasprouse andromedastudio joybhads alanmcanulty susanestlerjewelry buckycalloway (sorry if I missed anyone!)

This is a lesson that I learned while printing but I think it can apply to life in general too. When I am having trouble with my press and just can’t figure out how to fix it I find that stepping away and sleeping on it is the best solution. Usually I can come back the next day with a fresh mind and can solve the problem much more quickly. / Day 18: Mistake or Lesson

Day 22 of marchmeetthemaker Today's topic: "Proud of" So I realize I've fallen off the wagon again keeping up with each day's topic, but I'm back. 😉 My schedule doesn't stay straight when the are off school, and it's currently spring break. There's quite a few things I'm proud of in this business. First off, trying to run a business with 4 is no easy task. I've hung in there for 6 years even the couple times I've wanted to throw the towel in. This is something so many of us small shops go through. Some other things I'm proud of is having my work published in 4 magazines, getting my products into the hands of a few celebrity babies, working with flash sales like Zulily and wholesaling with boutiques in the US and internationally. I don't have a PR team mind you. 😉 Tomorrow's topic is about sharing a tip, so if you check back, I'll share some insight on how I accomplished some of this. • • • • • • • • • behindthebrand momof4 momprenuer entrepreneur smallbusiness babylife babyboutique pr bocaraton style sewing houstontexas business babybibs hustle workflow motivation success businessowner branding mindset photooftheday makeithappen fashion

marchmeetthemaker | Day 22 | Proud of . I guess what I'm most proud of is just the fact that I did it. I went for it and registered a business. I really had to just believe in myself and take a chance and that can be hard to do sometimes Here is a work in progress that I'm also proud of so far! When finished it will be a plant hanger 🌼

Repost from feltiscreations using RepostRegramApp - marchmeetthemaker Day 22 | Proud of . I’m proud of stepping out of my comfort zone and being able to start a small shop. By taking this decision it helps me out to be more motivated and sew more which I wanted to have something else to be able to get myself motivated other than cosplay. Another reason why it’s to help me be more creative and explore it through art and crafts. I must say I did hesitated a lot cause of fear of not being able to sell and everything just going down but I’m happy I managed to do so. Even if I’m just starting out I hope and wish I can offer and come up with new items in the near future Black variant of the Smash Bros Plush is now live in my online store marchmeetthemaker2019 meetthemaker plush plushies geeky cute kawaii nintendo nintendoswitch supersmashbrosultimate supersmashbros ssbu ssb gaming gamer gamergirl etsysellersofinstagram etsyseller nintendolife etsyshop smallshop smalletsyshop pillow decor

Well, hey there. I’m Gina, 30-something wife and mom and I have a zit. 🤦🏻‍♀️ That is not something I’m proud of, but I’m not crying about it either. One thing I am proud of (for the marchmeetthemaker prompt) is becoming more confident as a woman beloved by God so that I can try my hardest to raise my girls to be confident in their feminine genius, as well. Perhaps no other thing has made me more confident than running. 🏃🏻‍♀️ Something stirs in my soul when I run and it’s changed me. And as a mom, one thing I’ve tried that works (and I’m pretty dang glad it has) is journaling with my girls. We’re not always passing the books back and forth; right now is a bit of an “off” time for journaling. This habit, this special space for us to share has been invaluable. And guess what. I wrote an e-book about it, filled it with printable sheets so you can add sweet notes, and made it available for you. I’m going to run a sale on it, just because I think every mom of a daughter needs to try it. Find it in my Etsy shop or my blog shop. momdaughtergoals motherdaughterbond bisisterhood motherrunner daughterofgod
