Crafters Kim Werker and Betsy Greer have started a new blog called The Creative Life, seeking to start the dialogue to explore ways us crafters can stay creative along with the reality of paying the bills. They invite us all to participate, so leave a comment on their blog with your thoughts.
Our hope is to start a giant conversation with you about all sorts of things that boil down to this: What’s it like to strike off on your own into a creative field, where do you find support and community when you do it, where do you turn when it seems everyone in your life thinks you’re crazy? We’re not into compiling top-10 lists or giving advice on how to find an accountant. We’re very much into striving toward waking up each morning feeling at peace with the tasks we have to accomplish and the comfort of knowing there’ll be food on the table.
