My Creative Process...

In doing this 365 days of craft videos I have a definite creative process. I wake up in the morning, and scan my brain (my filing system, LOL) and come up with an idea for the day. I then get all of my supplies ready and shoot. So far this is working out great, and we'll see if I need to get more organized??

On day 5 i show you "How to make embellished headbands". Headbands are so hot right now and it seems the more funky the better. Check out day 5, http://www.youtube.com/wowzzydotcom I also posted a bonus video for day 5, "How to make the perfect bow"

On Day 6 I show you "How to make a pair of fun and funky earrings" using yummy Amy Butler fabric and fabric stiffener.

I am currently having technical difficulties getting that video to upload, and am currently working to figure out the issue. Day six WILL be posted shortly!

And so it begins... Give away!

This is a very interesting project I have taken on. 365 days of craft how to videos in 365 days. Well turns out, it's more work than I expected, and I am having a blast! On day one I did a tutorial on freezer paper stenciling and mad this hash tag t-shirt, this is such an easy technique and I love the professional look.

On day 2 (today) I showed you how to make an easy, fun, chunky statement ring.  This fall the jewelry trend is big, bold, colorful and chunky pieces. Over the years I have made many of these rings. I love making them to match an outfit, and they make great gifts.

As I mentioned in the day 2 video, I am using the red with crystals as a giveaway on my blog.  All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and on Sept 25, 2010 I will randomly select a comment and that person will win.

Thank you for your great comments and happy crafting!

I am so busy gearing up for my 365 day challenge!  I would be lying if I said I wasn't a bit anxious and nervous about this commitment.  Questions keep popping up in my head, can i do it? How will I come up with 365 tutorials? What if this flops?, and then I keep telling myself, you can do this! 

I already have over 1000 subscribers to my Youtube channel and I know they have been waiting a long time for more videos, well they are going to get them.  I am commited to this project  and am going to take it one day at a time, and let the universe take care of the rest.

Here is a link to my highest viewed video, enjoy... It currently has over 400k views and it was my first ever video.

A Year Later...

I have been wanting to get my blog going forever!! I have been pondering several ideas on what would make my blog different from other crafting blogs, and I realized "just make it your own, Julie"

I have a YouTube channel with almost 1000 subscribers of crafty tutorials that has been semi-successful. I am always asking myself, "what if" What if I had been posting more tutorials? I know I have a mind chock full of ideas. "What if" What if I had consistent postings to my Blog? I know if I write people will read.

I am so fed up with the "what ifs" and know is the time to DO!

My commitment is to do a blog post and video a day for 365 days. Sure there are tons of "365 days" blogs, some succeed and some fizzle out...

Here are a few of my inspirations, of course the movie "Julie and Julia" sparked the inspiration. Here are a few more that have sparked my creative juices:
This woman decided to give $100.00 a day to charity.
legomyphoto This is a unique 365 blog of Lego photos. Check it out is really unique, and to quote the author
"Why you should do this
So this is my message to you. I’ve learned more over the course of this project, by just taking a photo every day, than I ever did while trying to working under the deadlines of the newspapers and the magazines that I shot for. I wasn’t working under a creative director or for a client, it was personal work that allowed me to stretch my wings creatively and to learn at my own pace. Others began to notice the work I was doing and now wanted to hire me to shoot the brand of photography that I had desperately wanted to shoot all along.
So if you’re looking to get serious about your craft, why not challenge yourself to a photo a day with the only model that’s always available and as passionate as you are about it… yourself!"

So, I AM serious about my craft and beginning Sept 15, 2010, I will post a crafty tutorial and blog post for 365 days.

And Thank you to Crissy of Indie Biz Chicks for inspiring me!
