I wanna blog a bit more. So I decided my first stop would be, where do I draw inspiration from?
Well Supernatural is definitely one of them. I am a huge fan and it started out that I wanted Dean’s Skull bracelet and then people kept asking me to make them one too. So I kind of owe all this to Supernatural.
I also was blessed being raised in Switzerland. Where I was taught in school how to sew, knit, crochet and needle work. I am also not afraid of failure. I have made many mistakes a long the way and I still make mistakes, I still make mistakes and that is ok. You just can’t be afraid of failure.
Many times, someone asks me “Can you do that?” and I just without thinking go “sure” and then in my brain the conversation goes like this ” You know you have no idea how to do that?” and the other voice goes “Nope but I will figure it out”. This day and age we have the wonder that is called “the INTERNET” which had an abundance of information. I remember one time I didn’t understand knitting instructions in English, I looked it up on youtube and voila I was able to do it.
One of my favorite places to go for inspiration in Pinterest. I see so many things and items, that I look at and then think, Oh I could make that this and turn it into this, or I could make into that. Pinterest has an abundance of inspiration, is it for cooking, crafting, jewelry making or just insparational quotes to get you thru the day. You should definitely check it out and if you like you can follow me and see what I put on my inspiration board.
My other inspiration is my family. We do things together, my daughter and I are very close and we love to go to Conventions. She loves to Cosplay and of course I help her with costumes. She is also the one that inspires a lot of my merchandise. The Pencil pouches/Makeup bags, that was her. She wanted one and I made her one. The Sansa Stark Necklace, that was her. Doctor Who on the other hand is more my husband. He build a full sized Dalek that is sitting in my dining room. He inspires me to be successful. And my son just makes me laugh when I need a break.
You can find inspiration in many ways and just believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
Have a great evening…
