3rd and Final Blog Hop for the Build a line Challenge!
After talking with Brenda, our great leader, I am going to talk about what I have learned. (I will post pictures in a couple of weeks) One of the things I learned is that I am hobbyist that someday yearns to be a designer. I am still experimenting with what my look is and I learned that it is ok to take my time to figure it out.
The next thing I learned is that I have a style I like which is the steampunk style. I also found out that I live in the middle of the country and western style of the state. I have realized that for me to sell in my style I may have to travel outside my area , and I am ok with that. I just have to figure out where to go is all.
One of the ladies on the Facegroup does a color image about once a week or so that I have started to use as a challenge to myself. I found myself in a rut when it came to colors so it has really pushed me to go beyond what is comfortable for me. I really have to thank her for doing that for me (though I am sure she had no idea she was doing that. LOL. )
We started a discussion on how different people are trying to organize their stash and I had the thought "I have to organize my stuff but I wont find things if I do that?!" As I was reading what everyone was writing I was thinking but I don't want it to be so complicated! Then Brenda showed us her way and I was going" yes someone is doing it the way I want to do it!" It is nice to know that you can do it simple. Thanks Brenda!
I hope to stay in touch with all of these great ladies as we grow and do great things!
