I love creative things. This is a list of random creative & crafty projects that I want to do (at some point).
- Write/Illustrate my owl children’s book (I have this about 80% complete)
- Design/Illustrate a mood journal to use to track moods (an actual paper journal)
- Have my own designs printed onto stationery (notebooks, stickers, pens, cards, etc.)
- Have my own designs printed as wrapping paper, fabric and sticky tape
- Make a handmade & hand bound journal from recycled materials
- Carve my own stamps (inking stamps) OR have my own designs made into stamps
- Purchase or hire a badge maker and make my own designs into badges/buttons/pins (there is a heart shaped badge maker that screams awesome!)
- Try needle felting and make some cute toys/creations
- Make felt creations of some of my own designs (hand sew)
Are there any creative projects you want to try?
* The featured image is of stickers I had printed in November last year, the photo is from my phone, so the quality is a bit bum. I should have used my DSLR camera, doh. *
Cute cute cute! I have such a weakness for cute notebooks and cards and things like that but I never buy them because I know I won’t ever use them, at least not the whole thing :'( but… but CUTE THINGS…
Haha. I have that problem as well. I literally have a whole cupboard full of notebooks. Mabye a few have some scribbles in them. BUT, if you ever decide you need a notebook for something, you know where to look. xD
Those are all really good ideas! I hope you get to achieve all of your creative ideas!
Aww those stickers are super cute! I’m irrationally scared of stickers, but I can still appreciate the designs! Good luck with all of those ideas, they sound really fun! I’m particularly interested in the badge maker, that sounds very fun.
What scares you about them? I have never heard of a sticker phobia before. :O I am interested to know why.
You need a shop.. You should call it “The Cute Room”.
Bwahahahahahaha. Want to be my first customer? 😉
Kya wrapping paper would be the best thing ever!
It would be a lot of fun. If you could find the right printer and get the kind of paper effect you want. I have no idea how much it costs, but probably a lot more than what you can buy the shop stuff. But, it would still be a really cool thing, to be able to wrap items in something that you designed yourself. 😀
Good luck with your goals! I l always love your illustrations. You can definitely go somewhere with them. 😀
Recently, I’ve started painting again. It’s a lot of fun and a great hobby away from the computer. I’d like to practice enough for a work worth posting. XD
Awww, thank you. I still feel that I need a lot more practice, but even so working on creative projects like the above still allows me to make things I like as well and maybe even push me to keep improving.
I hope that you do keep painting and will post something soon. I would love to see it! 😀
I love all these creative plans, I can’t wait to see your owl children’s book.
I get bored so easily with creativity, I’m just not that good at doing anything original. Reading is the only thing I can concentrate on at the moment.
What do you find motivates you to be creative?
Hahaha. I had meant to write “my own children’s book”. I guess I have owls on the brain. >.< Yeah, but you write kick ass reviews! Which, is writing, and you are expressing your own original thoughts on the works you have read, so that is a thing. 😀 What motivates me? Erm. I just kind of do it. That isn't a very good answer. I guess sometimes if I am browsing websites like deviantart.com sometimes I do become inspired and want to make something. Lately, my inspiration has all been visual creations, such as art, photography and not much written because I can't find motivation there. 🙁
Cuuute!! I love crafts! but sadly, I can’t find time and the materials are so expensive in my current place.
I want to try knitting once I find the materials.
The cost can be a problem. Both for materials and if you are trying to find printers for designs. You can go the cheap options, but that is not always the best idea because items can be faulty, or supplies like paint and brushes can either be icky or fall apart.
I really admire the people that knit so many amazing and wonderful things. They look so perfect. 😀
I’m not really a craft person but I would love to try knitting! And I think it’s something I’ll get obssessed with.
You should do it! 😀
You are so talented! I wish I had your talent at designing. Everything you make is so cute. 🙂
Awww thank you. A lot of what I made (digital design) is very simple in concept, with vector shapes. I am sure that you could do it too with a bit of practice and patience. 😀
There’s nothing bad with phone photos. Everyone doesn’t have to have DSLR! I was happy with my compact camera just that it was slow and not good at zooming.
So good to see your passion for design and crafts!!! I’d love to do some too, I’ll see if I can manage during the spring. I used to sew clothes and make beaded necklaces, and hope to take that up again.
I like to have larger images on my blog, so you can see some of the details within things. But you’re right. You don’t need DSLR images all the time.
I hope you can find the time to do some craft projects. That is really cool that you used to sew clothes and make necklaces!
I also like large images (actually see no reason to use photos if you can’t see them properly anyway), but I think that phone photos are good enough many times, it’s mainly about how the lighting conditions are when you take the picture.
I like your new theme! I’ve been looking at it too, but for Tumblr or if it was Ghost, but ended up using something else.
Such great creative goals! Good luck with all of it! 🙂
My goal is simply to start selling my art one day. 😀
