Welcome to 12Create

Welcome to 12Create, my new blog where I will be exploring creativity in general, exploring my creativity, drawling over other people's creativity and hopefully being very creative.

I am still in the process of setting up this blog so if you find any links or buttons that don't work please let me know so I can fix them.

My goal is to make creativity a part of my everyday life. My creativity has been almost non-existent over the last couple of years and I have decided it is time to just get on with it. I know I am the happiest when 'making things' is a part of my every day life.

I am finally learning to crochet which has been a goal for many years. I am learning through an on-line tutorial on Craftsy taught by Kim Werker. Kim is super creative and I have done her Daily Making Jumpstart Workshop which she describes as "a 14 day guided adventure". She is not wrong. I have gained a lot from this workshop mostly because it made me sit down and think about my creativity and it actually made me sit down and start making things. I am also currently reading Kim's book "Make It Ugly".

Talking of Make It Ugly, this is Whatley made from junk and scraps. Whatley now sits beside my craft desk to remind me to just have a go and above all to make sure I enjoy what I am doing.

Anyway the purpose of this post is just to say welcome to my new blog. I am really looking forward to sharing my creative journey with you.

  1. Congrats on your new blog... and congrats on your "make something every day of the year" - not the worst resolution for the New Year. And I like your new companion very much... I bet he will have an eye on you while you're exploring new creative paths and enjoy the well-known ways too. Oh, and please tell Mr. Whatley his haircut is very stylish... ;O)
