Such Opportunity and Crafty Corner!

It is truly remarkable how much is available to us in this day and age to be creative and market our wares.   This is powered by the Internet access, that allows anyone to find components, to be inspired, and fuel the creative individual.    A search of the internet with a simple word can net you a barrage of information about what you are looking for.  Some relevant and some maybe not so much.   The same search of the internet on a  site such as Etsy can net you a list of choices that can be more easily digested and perused and sometimes more applicable to your creative spirit.  I have found it to be both informational and inspirational.

For example the other day I was searching for supplies of roses, the internet search engine told me about every flower type, several business that would sell me flowers and a list too long to reveal here of items I was not interested in.   The search in supplies on Etsy, lead me directly to a rose lampwork bead, rose-colored yarn, a digital collage sheet etc…  Much more in tune with my creative side.   It provided me with both a physical source and inspiration that could carry me forward work with my creativity.   I bet this happens more times than we could count, and what a gift it is.    It always makes me think that the possibilities are endless (which they are) when you open your mind and use past experiences to bring together a creation you can be proud of.

I thought I would share some of the shops that provide supplies that also inspire me…. and how to make a flirty ric rac flower in the crafty corner.

  1. I see you have listed Cara Shea Beads as a link for supplies. She has recently closed her artfire and facebook account. I would strongly advise you to remove her from your recommened links due to the fact that she accepted/cashed my check and never sent my order! Also she doesn’t seem to respond to emails. Just a little food for thought. I would hate for you to lose fans do to an idiot like her!

    • Thanks Hilary for the new information. The link listed in the blog post no longer links due to her account being closed. I sure hope there wasn’t anything bad that happened to her. I am so sorry she didn’t deliver to you, that is always so disappointing.
