creativity fills the heart

The gift of making

I’ve been thinking of what I’ve accomplished this year at A Little Hut and I realize that even though it was a slower pace than usual I’m pleased with the results. However, I’m not completely satisfied. I want to take things further and I’m taking some steps to get that going. I’m doing some research and I’m narrowing my scope.

The idea is to develop an online course. What I’m trying to figure out is what to cover. For me it’s all about sharing the gift of making (yes, I’m totally aware that that sounds kind of cheesy — but I don’t know how to describe it in any other way). That’s the goal. But what I really need to know is what paper crafters would enjoy. What would you want to learn from me? What would be your wish for a paper crafting course? I’d love to know your thoughts. Send me an email (info @ alittlehut.com) if you’d like to share privately. I’d love to hear from all of you!

Oh and before I forget the class will require having a cutting machine. I want it to be about how you can take your projects further with your amazing tool (I love mine!).

For now, there’s a new Christmas project that I posted this week — the Poinsettia Gift Set. It has everything you need to either give someone a framed paper cut holiday artwork, decorate with an ornament, wrap a small gift with two different sizes of boxes or simply send a holiday with with a beautiful card. All of it could be one gift itself!

The project started with the 3D flower and I thought of just selling it on its own but I felt it was missing other things to go along with it, so I kept going. The two-dimensional illustration came next and then it felt like the idea was complete. If I’m perfectly honest, I love, love the white-on-white flower. If I could I’d make everything white!

Have fun paper crafting!
