Hi Pepperell friends! We're trying to get back into our blog and so now I'll be updating this too! Interacting with customers is something I look forward to and has become a great way to interact with everyone. So today I didn't know where to starts, and while I was thinking about it and and working on projects I did the most dangerous thing in the world: I put on You Tube! (insert Dun Dun Duuuuuunnnnn! sound here)
You ever do that? It is so easy to go down the You Tube rabbit hole. I know, I know, it's controversial. There's bad people, there's videos that are gross, there are videos that make you angry. All of it! You know what else is on there? Instructions! Inspiration! Creative people like I have never seen. My favorites: the people who look at some old cereal box, and use it to make something so beautiful. I'll be perfectly frank here, I utilize it so much it's not even funny. I've spent many hours on You Tube watching people decorating cakes and wondering how I can apply them to crafts. hmmmm....
But seriously, we have not been able to break into You Tube. We've tried. We've failed. :-/ Honestly, the BEST people on there are the ones who make it look SO easy that I could do it! I've been taking our plastic clips from the Clip It! kits and trying my hand at crafting with them. As a small craft company whose specialties include plastic lacing, the idea of using recycled materials to craft with is pretty far from our wheel house. However, I DID figure it out. Yes, they work with craft sticks (or popsicle sticks...if you will) and I stacked and glued some old tissue boxes, cut them into strips and started building with those too. It seems like a lot of work, but it's not.
So this weekend, I dare you: get on You Tube, Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook, Etsy...wherever, and just search for one thing you might find interesting and Go. Down. The Rabbit hole. Discover something new. A new technique, a new craft, something that inspires you. Always feel free to share them with us (wink wink) and have fun. Hey---that's half the reason to craft right?
I'm just over here crafting people! Anna :-)
