DAY 23. TOP TIP OR ADVICE. In the words of Jean Prouve ‘Never design anything that cannot be made’ I think this rings true to me because I can design and make. But it’s amazing how many designers cannot make, and how the design fails because it is impossible to make. And does the skill to make and design amplify a designers ability? 🤔 taking a concept from 2D into 3D is ultimately what creates the finished piece - make it work! So I love this quote I saw clerkenwelldesignweek a few years ago now! It’s been waiting on my phone for a prompt like today’s marchmeetthemaker joannehawker today weekend weekendpost weekendvibes leweekend toptip advice quote wordsofwisdom myadvice jeanprouve clerkenwelldesignweek words wordstoliveby saturday saturdaywords designer maker designandcreate designandmake makersgonnamake handmade ode markmywords design innovate

Marchmeetthemaker challenge for today is Top tip or advice. Mine would have to be pay attention to the details. Supportive friends and family may not look in depth at your products or creations, and be supportive and complimentary, but when it comes to a paying customer, they expect a quality product. It's disrespectful in my opinion to give them anything but so always pay attention to the little details people might not normally notice. If you see the picture examples I've created, from a distance you wouldn't notice it, but up close it's the difference between repeat buyers and a good review and one timers. Take the time to create your art and do it the justice it deserves! Rome wasn't built in a day :) It's a lesson I learnt the hard way. Imagine going for a job interview, you look and sound your best, well your creation introduces you to your customers so give it your best :) giveityourbest toptip designandcreate attentiontodetails itsthelittlethings buyhandmade workingmomlife dare2inspiregifts lovehandmade smallbiz handmade handmadejewellery

Today's Marchmeetthemaker challenge is throwback and I've decided to throwback to the very beginning! Here's just a few of my makes from when I first started nearly 4 years ago. From really bad photography and simple designs (although do love the bottom pink set may try some more at some point haha) I think I have progressed quite far, I've had my setbacks through personal and health issues over the years but I think I'm finally finding my stride! I've finally sorted my photography out, and my designs and supplies are much better quality! I'm glad to have done this post as it's helped me to see just how far I've come. Sometimes we have to go back to the beginning to see just how far we've truly come Big plans ahead for us here at dare2inspiregifts and I can't wait to make it happen lovehandmade smallbiz handmade handmadejewellery lovemyson workingmomlife dare2inspiregifts handmadegifts throwback lookhowfarivecome lookingtothefuture comesofar bigplans designandcreate getinspired

Day 20 - Design Process . The design process for me first starts with me playing around on illustrator and using it like a sketchbook to come up with different ideas. Once I have an idea that I like, I'll tweak it and make it into a file that I can then send to the laser cutter. I find the design process quite frustrating at times, as I can't always get Illustrator to do what I want it too but it's also very rewarding when you manage to figure something out and the design looks just as you imagined marchmeetthemaker heytheremaker sketches ideas designprocess designandcreate illustrator firststep startoftheprocess smallbusiness designermaker

Design process is today's marchmeetthemaker challenge! I have several different design processes I use at various times. Firstly I have a stack of notepads with ideas that I write down, supplies needed, costings etc and a rough sketch, to remind me of the design when I go back to it. I've always found writing things down helpful, especially when I have a million ideas bouncing in my head. Secondly one of my best times to come up with designs is when I'm rocking my son to sleep, surprisingly. I'm sat in a darkened room gently rocking him, with just the sound of his breathing as background noise, I've come up with a few designs this way. I clear my mind and just let ideas come to me, I then plan them in my mind. Once he's asleep I'll then add the idea to my notebooks or start making it straight away. Lastly if I'm struggling for inspiration I will just go through my drawer of charms, and let the ideas jump out at me, I'll collect the bits I need for that particular design on a little tray or in a baggie, ready to make up :) I think designs and creativeness hits at random times so I never just stick to one design process, sometimes you just have to go with the flow and let your imagination guide you lovehandmade lovemyson workingmomlife dare2inspiregifts handmadegifts gowiththeflow designandcreate getinspired lettheideascometome notebookobsessed designprocess

Good Monday Morning To You! I've had a lot of new followers and customers recently so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm fundamentally a wife & mummy to two . (That's the hard bit🤣). Then inbetween these two jobs I make bespoke personalised gifts. I started my hobby when my youngest was settled into Reception class at school. Wowzers so that was in 2013! So that makes me in my 6th year. How did it all begin? WellMy very first product was a new baby gift for my friend.  I upcycled a piece of pallet wood. (From hubby's workshop). I Sanded it. I Painted it. I Drilled holes into the top of it Then made it pretty with my design on the front, personalised for the New Baby. I handed my gift over to my friend,  very gingerly and with much trepidation as I really did not know what her reaction would be. But alas it was all goodshe LOVED it. Phew! I took pictures of it and posted it on social media. My friend did the same. Before my very eyes people commented to ask if I'd make one for them.  And that is how it all began Over time I have ventured into learning new skills and techniques.  This includes a scroll saw, desktop cnc, graphic design +some CAD. Also my husband designs + builds solid wood furniture (in his free time)so he has helped & supported me along the way. Some people do call us the Wood PeopleThat's Ok, I've heard worse 🤣 So with time, my hobby has naturally evolved and I am now able to be a very busy bee all year round. I offer a very bespoke service, everything is made to order. (Hence 2-3 week leadtime item dependent) We also now have a wonderful off-site team of wood cutters, suppliers & helpers (my mum included) who assist us along the way. So that's about it I thinkOh gosh no it isn't I  nearly forgot to mention our resident pooch, Buddy, who is an integral member of Rose Crafts Gifts HQ as he likes to keep my feet warm while I work at my desk. 🐾 Everything is made with Much Love, Pride & Passion. My buzz is seeing my work make others happy ❤ Thank you thank you thank you for supporting me and helping my little business be known.💛 specialgiftsforspecialpeople rosecraftsgifts

Day 14 of marchmeetthemaker - How I learnt I first learnt how to laser cut when I was at University. It was a quick 2 day course on how to make files that would work with the laser cutter. A lot of stuff after that I taught myself One of the first laser cut projects I ever did was when I was partnered up with someone in my class and we decided to make an oversized laser cut leather necklace, as seen in the photos. This definitely made me see the potential in the different products I could create. I then began experimenting with wood for jewellery and also really enjoyed that I could draw the designs by hand and then turn this into a physical product. Its mad to think that this was almost 8 years ago lasercut lasercutting lasercutjewellery firstproject evolvingdesigns timegoestoofast university firstdesigns thinkingback designandcreate designermaker independentbusiness

CITRINE: Natural untreated Citrine is typically pale yellow to golden in color and is often accompanied by smoky brownish tones. Deeper colors can occur ranging from golden orange to rich gold-brown. Darker colors are typically considered more desirable than lighter lemon colors. Natural Citrine is actually quite rare and although Citrine deposits can be found all around the world, Brazil is the world's leading supplier for natural Citrine. customdesign customjewelry customjewelrydesign fashion fashionring bridal engaged engagementring weddings weddingjewelry weddingjewellery fashion2019 diamonds desmoinesengagementringdesigner desmoineseastvillage eastvillagedesmoines eastvillagedsm historiceastvillage designandcreate art cadcam computeraideddesign jewelryart metals shopdesmoines

Wisdom from johncmaxwell : When we intentionally begin the process of development and growth a shift happens inside of us. Our perspective, reasoning and overall mindset begins to change. : As John brilliantly says when we’re growing internally we're no longer concerned with "How long will it take?" we adopt the mindset that says "How far can I go?" This level of awareness is truly a game changer. : For more information on how to get started in the process of personal development and growth join me for an in-depth guided study of the laws and principles of Growth based on the foundational book “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John C. Maxwell”.
