Create

Creating is about so much more than the finished product at the end. Creating is a way to jump into the Creative Esteem Loop. It is a way to make yourself happier and more self-confident. I know because it happened to me. Once I started making things by hand, my self-esteem and joy increased (and they keep increasing each time I make something!) and I knew that I needed to share this magic with everyone.

These tutorials will catapult you into a handmade life and straight into the Loop.

Take a deep breath, push your fears and doubts to the side, and take the leap into creativity.
