The 40 Greatest Family Games
For some families, game nights are at the very core of who they are and how they live together. From generation to generation, brothers and sisters and cousins in game families have shared in-jokes, swapped anecdotes, and passed down the legend of that time Grandma accidentally drew something kind of racy in Pictionary. When they gather around a game board, they're at their smartest and their funniest, and they make some memories.

Wed Jul 1, 2020 02:44 PM    Blog: Nesting but Not Resting

Nearly a year ago, I wrote a blog post, “It Takes Time to Build Your Nest – A Lesson Learned in Creating an Online Store” . A year later I am reexamining where I am financially, mentally, and creatively.

Where to begin? It all started with a vision and a desire to create quality handmade products.... Read more

Mon Jun 15, 2020 01:19 PM    Forum: The Romanovs Art of Survival

For someone who grew up in Russia, I didn't know much about last tzar's family and how artistic they all were. When I moved to Canada, I was surprised to learn that the last Grand Duchess of Russia Olga Alexandrovna Romanova was a an accomplished...  Read more...

The Romanovs Art of Survival
Almost all the Romanovs had an artistic bent: they painted, doodled, carved, embroidered, cut jewelry, or sculpted. As Russia's rulers before the 1917 revolution, their communications with the world were governed by official considerations; the personal remained invisible to the society at large. But there were flesh-and-blood men and women behind the scepter, tiaras, and ermine mantels, and they felt, processed, suffered, rejoiced, raved, prayed, and reminisced. To a family whose every move was watched and discussed, art offered an avenue to channel individual experience in a private mode.

I agree with Fairy Cardmaker that marketing is a HUGE part of owing your own business! I think I might spend 50 percent of my time on marketing and 50 percent making product. But I think it is worth it as I am slowing getting the word out there...  Read more...

Thank you Fairy Cardmaker for the words of encouragement! My husband is a musician (a side hobby) and has tried to teach me how to play the guitar...no such luck (Lol). But at least I gave it a tried   Read more...

Sorry, I have NO idea what you mean by sealing edges with metal. I only WISH my high-school had programming that sounds as cool as that!  Read more...

Welcome to iCraft! I noticed your shop description mentions jewellery and the natural materials. There's room for more length in your description, so if you can work in words like "necklace", "bracelet", and...  Read more...

Hi Bee Bee! Welcome to iCraft. I don't wear jewellery but I don't think those prices are daunting at all. I do think marketing is a HUUUUUGE part of owning your own business. Look for ways to put the word out, not just online, but...  Read more...

Congrats! I watched a TedTalk on learning. Our brain is a muscle and learning is what exercises it - not recall, like word puzzles. Learning NEW things. This creates NEW connections in our brains. So, the more you learn, the more you combat the...  Read more...

(what can I say; I am pretty touchy, LOL) Ha ha! I hear ya. I'm the same. I wonder if the low number of pottery sellers also has to do with the shipping. Not only is it costly and discourages online shopping, it's fragile too. If...  Read more...
