How did I get to where I am? ~ The October Talk About Blog

First – What is the Talk About Blog Feature?

What this means, is on the 15th of each month, any of the HandMade Division team artists who choose to participate, will write about the same (pre-determined) topic. What makes it fun, is you, the reader, can easily link thru tho the other Artist’s blog pages and read what they have to say, or think about Each month’s topic. Almost like a debate… but much more fun. It always amazes me to hear everyone’s different ideas, experiences, and opinions. Sometimes you just don’t realize the depth and breadth of ideas within a group, on a topic, until you do a group  project like this.

October’s Topic:

Tell us about yourself – how did you get to where you are now with your skills?

Please note: Not all our members post their blogs at the same time of day; and~ we’re global. We try to get it all on in the morning, but if you happen to get to a blog, before the topic is posted, I do hope you’ll come back later. And likewise, you may not be reading this on the day it posts, therefor, you most likely will not link thru to the writer’s exact Talk About Blog post. For this purpose, Most of the team members will keep a Category for the Talk About blog – so you can search that. Also, we try to use tags on the blog – such as the date, words from the topic, and of course “Talk, About, Blog” etc. these too can help you search the writer’s blog for their Talk About blog posts.

Andes Cruz was featured on this lovely “Etsy Item Of The Day” blog, ( and twitter) HERE.

Rosy Revolver has a blog feature coming up this week on Tuesday (the 28th); regarding Pricing of work. Here’s what she has to say: “I’m going to be blogging on pricing this coming Tuesday.  Not my specific formula, but things I have to take into account when it comes to settling on that final number.  This is to both educate my customers/potential customers, and maybe (hopefully) enlighten new sellers on how to price their work.” I think this is going to be a great discussion. Rosy has also invited other artists from all fields to participate in the discussion, and will be linking to their posts from her blog.

NEDbeads is excited –  Margie Deeb has published a new PDF for sale that includes her Dark Carnival Cuff as an inspiration for others!! She feels so honored that Margie picked her piece!!!!

Watto is going to sponsor the Tucson Roller Derby this Saturday, the 26th. As well,  Jon and a local artist submitted ther proposal for a public art project in Florida. Keep your fingers crossed tha they get it. Also, This week they are finishing a project for the Heart Association for table centerpieces for their annual fundraiser.

Danielle Miller had a ring was featured in an article on the idazzle blog!
