Hi, crafters! We’re excited to introduce 13 days of creativity on the blog. For the next two weeks we’re here to put the pep back in your step by publishing articles to spark your creativity, such as charming thrifted collections that’ll inspire your next trip to the thrift shop, spotted hashtags on Instagram and Twitter, and the interesting stories of craft sellers and their top business tips.
Why 13 days of creativity
We’ve seen and heard different views from the creative community about January and the echo that follows it: resolutions, new beginnings, inspiration wherever you turn. Some people love resolutions and see Jan as the month to start afresh; others look back, using it as a time to reflect on achievements and set goals for the year ahead; and many, many more want to get back into the swing of things but find honest inspiration hard to come by. Whichever club you find yourself in, we hope the next 13 days on MollieMakes.com will serve your creative mind.
