Welcome to my blog; and 3 creative rules for the Internet.

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I vow to post things that are

  1. Entertaining
  2. Informative

Thanks for stopping by. Here are three creative rules for the internet. (Not my only rules, or the most important rules. Just three rules. Observances, really.)

See, doesn't the rich texture and muted background make this item look AMAZING in its Etsy listing?

See, doesn’t the rich texture, extreme close-up angle and muted background make this item look AMAZING in its Etsy listing?

  1. Don’t believe half the stuff you see on Pinterest. That stuff is difficult to impossible to reproduce. And brining t-shirts doesn’t work. I tried it.
  2. Steal ideas and inspiration; but don’t steal content. (Picasso said “Good artists borrow; great artists steal.” That was before social media.)
  3. The stuff you buy on Etsy is better than the stuff you make from Pinterest. But even the Etsy stuff can be disappointing; lots of sellers are better photographers than they are crafters. Even if it doesn’t look exactly like you imagined it, though, you may still love it.

Thank you–come back soon!
