Did you miss me because I surely missed all of you? It’s been way too long since I posted on Crafty Friday. The funny thing is I love crafting and recording videos, I would like to record a video every day, it’s the set up that is daunting. It only takes 15 minutes but it seems like the longest 15 minutes of my life.
Let see, I’ve been up to a lot since I’ve got back from the Trip of a lifetime. I’m working on a few media kits to approach stores and galleries about selling my art. I’m also hoping to expand my social media consulting business, most businesses I approach are very interested in my services, which is pretty darn exciting and slightly intimidating.
Then we have Valentines Day quickly approaching, that’s where today’s craft comes into play. We aren’t making anything red or anything that’s covered with hearts. But they do hold romantic candles and what says Valentine’s day more than candles. Let’s dive in.
