the art & business of crafting your online self.

This is great. I think the ‘you are what you share’ is possibly the thing that I, along with lots of other crafty bloggers, struggle with. It’s hard to maintain uniqueness in my business, but at the same time it would be nice to be generous with all the info I’ve gathered! Hmm.

I really enjoyed this post. Very true – sincerity always strikes the right cord and attracts good things, whether it’s a blog or an online shop. And I understand completely what you mean when you said you felt you lost yourself a bit in working for the “man”. Thank goodness I enjoy my current job but I’ve worked at many since I was 15 (a total job whore, lol) so I really understand. But I also think it’s this very thing that thankfully is contributing to this huge great movement of hard working small indie business owners building relationships together, handmade goods and blogs like yours.

Thank you for sharing with us at LVC! I was inspired to know that you can definitely make a living without working in a job you hate. I’m graduating in a few months now. I love the internet, I love art, and I love writing. Your career path might be my choice someday as well! Thanks again and good luck with your endeavors.

Wow – that yellow is just lovely – makes it feel like spring is just around the corner, and hopefully it is! We were still scraping ice of our cars in Scotland this morning! Thanks for the ray of sunshine!

Beautiful post! I’ll have to do a little link hopping to see if I can get some inspiration from some of yours. :)

And can I just say…YAY to Lola and her little Phillies hat?! I’m all giddy about it. Husband is a Yankees fan and so jealous that I’ve trained the girls to be Philly fans through and through.

It is all those human connections that make this worthwhile, right? The photo of your nana made me smile today. Thank you.
