I was just getting my ETSY forums fix and I saw this post
by Doodlestar. She has started a blog where different themes will be posted every Friday then artists are encouraged to create an item based on that theme. I think this is a great idea because:
1) It gives you a goal and a destination for when your not feeling so creative
2) Creating a piece in order to reach this particular outcome can lead to additional ideas and
concepts thereby getting you out of your creative slump
3) If you submit a finished piece it is great free advertising for you shop
It is really a win-win idea. Great job Doodlestar and thanks for all of your hardwork.
