This was originally a yarn bowl that came out wrong. Then the lacing cracked.

Social media is your friend. Except when it isn’t. And when it comes to creativity, that is very much the case. So how do you use it to your advantage?

Homework: Post your fails. Or the frustrating process.

Episode 3: Why do we make? (”Hello. I am achiever. Please notice.”)

Why? That is forever the question, isn’t it. Why do we make and do? Also, can we just put in our 10,000 hours spread over a thousand different things?

Homework for the episode is to find something you’ve made and put it in a frame.

Episode 2: A Room of One’s Own
