As I am preparing to open my Etsy shop, I sometimes wonder about this blog. Should I keep writing here and call my shop by the same name, or start something new? When I thought of the name for my blog it seemed to fit. At first in an obvious way because I started this blog with the intention of showing craft projects. It didn’t really turn into that kind of a blog; mostly because I never blog consistently. I also liked the name because I thought of “crafting” as creating my life. Not just my life, but in the way that all of us are “crafting” our lives everyday with the thoughts we think, the actions we take, and the things we create. So I kind of loved it. Now I’m looking at it and wondering if it is even grammatically correct. Does it make any sense? I’m still pondering it. I like the idea of starting a new website and changing my focus to just art and creative things.
Anyway, I finally set up my printer and scanner! It was pretty exciting setting everything up and feeling the possibility of it all. Now I am trying to rearrange my room so I have space for it all. My collection of markers, paper and paint has finally caught up with me. It kind of looks like a tornado went of right now. My next task is to teach myself Photoshop. I need it not only to resize and edit my artwork, but I also want to learn how to create a header and buttons for my blog. I think my plan for today is to finish rearranging my room and install Photoshop. Baby steps.
