Today is Day 22 of the #MarchMeetTheMaker challenge by @joannehawker Today's topic is: ✔️Proud of Instead of "proud," I would like to use the word "happy." I am happy I started my business. How many of us want something to happen, but we do nothing about it? Do something, Rare Gems. Do something. I am a living testimony that it can happen. I am happy that my skills are improving. I am happy that I create original pieces and do not copy other's work. I am happy that I've met some amazing people along the way. #ilovemycustomers I am happy that you are happy with your Rare Soul accessories. I am happy my displays have changed. My show setup is drastically different. I am happy that I am showing my children hard work and persistence have a positive outcome. I am happy that I have found a way to honor my parent's memory. I am happy that I am able to use the gifts God has given me. I am happy that God answers prayers and that whatever success I may experience is all because of Him. #raresoul #raresoulaccessories #howdoyouaccessorize #accessorizelife #businessgoals #whatmakesyouhappy #😊 #ididit #notproudbuthappy #dreamsdocometrue #boholuxe #bohojewelry #gemstonejewelry #jewelrydesigner #wearethemakers #craftsposure #heytheremaker #makerssupportingmakers #indiemaker

It’s almost the witching hour and my pumpkin carriage will soon be passing by to take me off to dreamy lands. But before I go I’d like to keep up with #marchmeetthemaker. Today’s theme has been “Proud of”. I’ve not done anything ground-breaking or even sold many of my handmade goodies in recent times. And I know I’m not as naturally talented as so many other makers. But taking part in this Meet the Maker challenge has got me looking through quite a few old photographs and it’s made me appreciate what I have done and what I have made over the years. I used to sell my quirky handmade bits and bobs on a more regular basis and it still gives me a warm, thankful glow to look back at the amount of things I’ve made and the lovely feedback that I’ve had. I think the warmest, tingliest feelngs I’ve had from my making over the years has been when I have seen the things that I made for theatre being brought to life on stage in front of audiences of people. For a while I made hats, wigs and also some fairy wings for a travelling outdoor theatre company. I had no formal training for that kind of work, so was completely self-taught, learning as I went over many long, hard hours of work. Seeing the things I’d made being worn and used by actors, being part of heart-warming, tear-jerking plays under moonlit midsummer skies in Sussex was a very special feeling. It was hard work, but something that I’ll always be so glad that I did. I don’t have any amazing photos of the theatre things in action, so I’ll just choose some photos I took of myself wearing some of them. I’d always take photos as a record of what I’d made. #marchmeetthemaker2019 #heytheremaker #folkymmtm #pro#propmaking #hatmaking #milinery #makersgonnamake #outdoortheatre #meetthemaker #meetthemakers #folksyshop #folksyseller #makersformakers #propmaking

#MarchMeetTheMaker Day 20: Design process Ok, two days late on this post. I posted it last night, apparently to an alternate universe because I don't see it anywhere, not in drafts, not pending, not posted. 🤔🤬 Heres's a picture of my current work in progress. Since it's an airplane logo, it was just a matter of printing the right size. My bead, jewelry and mosaic design processes are mental until time for execution. There's no pattern to follow, I just think of the picture in my mind, what effect I want to achieve and then lay down the glass. If I don't like it, shapes and colors and spaces get changed until I do like it. I used to do full color drawings years ago but that took away some of my motivation from actually constructing the piece. Maybe because I'd already physically created my vision? I don't know. 😶 #marchmeetthemaker #marchmeetthemaker2019 #flameworking #lampwork #lampworkbeads #glassbeads #glassart #artglass #artistsofinstagram #instachallenge #stainedglass #suncatcher #copperfoil #leadedglass #glassmosaic #mosaics #handmadeearrings #beadedearrings #beadedbracelet #beadednecklace #handcrafted #heytheremaker #makerslife #makersgonnamake #artistslife #crafters #shopsmall #smallbusiness #yeahthatgreenville #etsyseller

📏 #marchmeetthemaker Day 23: top tip or advice 📏 • For anyone who crochets - beginners & experts alike - learning to take the stated gauge / tension seriously in a pattern is a huge MUST!! 👌 • I can't tell you the number of times that I ignored this as a beginner & wondered why my baby booties wouldn't even fit a preemie baby...! 👶 Or why my beanie was a good size for a small child when it was meant for me...! 🤦 • I crochet tighter than most - I know that now - so if I don't check the stated gauge & compare it to my own tension, my finished product will almost always come out smaller than it should! 🙈 • I'll be writing a post on this soon... It's one of the more boring & annoying parts of crochet (it's up there with sewing in ends 😑) but it's so so important!! • #rantover 😹 • • • • • #marchmeetthemaker2019 #heytheremaker #cro#crochete #crochetgaugeswatch #crochettension #crochet #crochetbeginner #learntocrochet #learntocrochetwithme #learntocrochetlovetocrochet #crochetaddict #crochetdesigner #crochetersofinstagram #thesweetestgeekcrochet
