RUNNING A CREATIVE BUSINESS
Yarn Flakes: How do I keep focused on one creative area and should I ? I love to dye and spin yarn, create weaving art and also design knitting patterns. That's 3 very different things, and I can't help but think that I may be confusing my audience and not give out the best possible cohesive aesthetic. At the same time, I feel that I should do what I love and not restrain myself just to have a pretty uniform instagram feed. Do you have any thoughts on how to get a balance between exploring the various things our creative minds are attracted to and having an efficient business image?
Great question! Click through to watch the video for my answer :)
- I've loved reading Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. So temporary, thoughtful and beautifully written.
