Where do you aspire to be in 5 years? The December Talk About Blog.

December. Coming to the close of 12 fantastic months with the Handmade Division Team.

Such a fantastic group of artists, and friends.

It has been my (Andes Cruz)’s privilege and honour to work with this group, and to promote them.

I am personally handing off the torch of Curating this team, to one of our amazing members, Rickson. I’m very excited to pass the torch, and see what new vision, ideas and energy Rickson will bring to the team.

I hope you will continue to follow and support all these amazing artists on their own blogs, websites, and fanpages. And thank you all for your support for us in our ongoing journey….

The Talk About Blog:

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.

This month:Where do you aspire to be in 5 years?


Please check in with everyone who wrote this month:

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.

July Talk About Blog – Collaborations, are you interested?

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.

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.

So, July’s topic:

“Are there specific artists you’d love to collaborate with? And what kinds of things would you like to create with them?”

Please be sure to stop by the other blogging participants.

It’s “Talk About” Blog Time

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 topic. We decide beforehand what each month’s topic will be. 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 experiences, and ideas, and opinions. Sometimes you just done realize the depth and breadth of ideas within a group, on a topic, until you do a group  project like this.

So, May’s topic:

What item do you most treasure made by another artist? ( if there is one) If not, how about what would you *like* to have?

Talk About Blog ~ April 15th, 2010

It’s time for the Snow Leopard “Talk About” Blog Feature. Yay!

This month, we’re broaching a difficult topic, as a team.

“How do you view the topic of “copying”? What does it mean to you? I.E. — is it a concrete thing of an exact duplicate of your work, or do you consider design elements and style? Have you felt you have been copied by other artists? And, how do you deal with this? “
