this is...


Thank you Amelia for today's 'This is my trade secret' theme! I'm determined to quickly post my trade secrets before I run out the door to starting working on our Lark & Friends trade fair stand. Here are three trade secrets I think I abide by.

1. Stay inspired - very easy to ignore when your swamped with work. I think it's important to always make the time to feed your senses with creative inspiration, even if for a couple of hours on the weekend.

2. Work hard - but enjoyable hard work!

3. Always carry a small camera in your bag. You never know when you will need it. Here is an example. Pip crocheting at the Flemington Tabaret. She's hooking where ever she can.



I hope to blogging more frequently soon!!

I really like all of these ideas!!

I particularly like that third idea. I have often thought I'd like a little camera to keep in my handbag. Not only for crafty things, but also with little kids they are always doing something interesting and the moment passes by the time I get the big camera out.

All true! Making time for inspiration is a good one. Even if you're tired it's still enjoyable.

Love your trade secrets, but especially the last one. I am forever kicking myself that I didn't have a camera to capture something on the spur of the moment.

Great tips! Now, I think I need to tattoo that first one to the back of my hand to keep me reminded...

Great thoughts to live by! I like the idea of making dedicated time for creativity... it sounds less spontaneous and counter-intuitive at first but the soul is not always self-feeding device... sometimes it needs a push :o).

Cheers!
