Go back to the birthing room of the fledgling crafting business that is An Unexpected Hobby, and you’ll find Craftcation 2015 standing over my scared little laboring body, shouting, “PUSH, PUSH!!”
Since that amazingly inspiring weekend, I’ve created this blog, developed dozens of cross-stitch patterns, taught classes, and put together stitching kits to sell at my local comic book store and comic book conventions. I’m on the cusp of opening an Etsy shop with digital patterns available.
I’ve never felt so overwhelmed and empowered all at the same time. Balancing a personal business project, staying creatively inspired, keeping up with the day job, making it all work without forever alienating friends and family…it’s all a full-time job. I’ve come so far and there’s still so much to get off the launch pad.
So it’s back to Craftcation 2016 for an infusion of inspiration, networking, learning, sharing, crafting, eating, drinking (yay!).
How many days until April?
