The Joy is in the Journey!

I am very much a "What If " girl. One of my real loves is creating unique papers and embellishments.
For those who have stumbled upon this. I have a business called Time To Create with an online store and a studio. My satisfaction comes from experimenting and then sharing the ideas.

Are there any other crafters out there who like to do the same?

I am thinking that the idea of this challenge blog will be to share techniques and ideas we have developed. We can share these through three/four  easy avenues:
1. Our own Blogs
2. A flickr Group that I will happily set up.
3. A Pinterest page that we would be able to access and add to.
4. Is a Facebook Page to facilitate conversation  a setup that would work?

I am thinking that there will be no prizes. To me the joy is in the journey, the learning and the knowledge we will then have to apply to our crafting.

I am thinking this will be a calendar month challenge. I am thinking, I would ( to start with) put up a tutorial.
Then we would all run with it.  I am thinking that other interested artists could be guest designers sometimes.

To grow as a group it is important that we visit each other and dare I say offer real feedback - sometimes even contstructive criticism. It would be wonderful if we got artist conversations going. I would love to see where ideas get taken and get changed and developed by participants. Is there a limit to the craft or creation that you come up with??? NO!!!

Now I don't know about you but I am too busy for negativity and so I see this as an opportunity to truly share. Keeping this in mind if you use someone else's design or idea you acknowledge it - you link to them and truly spread the love.

What do you think? Would you like to join in? I would love to hear from you and see if we could listen to our muses, play and have fun.
 If as yu are reading this you think, I know ...... would love this please send them this link and ....


So looking forward to hearing from You!
