Crafty Things Afoot

I've been taking stock of myself and the things that I'm not only good at, but also actually enjoy, namely:
1)working with crafters
2)designing and sewing
3)helping people sell crafts that they made
4)teaching people how to craft
5)writing about crafting
6)planning craft-related events

I couldn't help but notice that the word "craft" was in there 5 times, along with sewing, designing, and writing, which are also pretty crafty. Add to that the fact that last week's Free Will Astrology horoscope basically told me to get off my butt (figuratively, given the circumstances) and start writing, and I've got a pretty clear sign from the universe that I need to start writing about craft, or, if not the larger craft movement, at least my place in it, and the places of those artists that I want to work with.

As someone who has always loved writing, but has never made a living at it, the idea of diving into that life terrifies me - sure, I can churn out compelling copy, but is that art? I have no idea.

It absolutely is ART! Being able to take words and sculpt them into something compelling is absolutely a masterful skill that one must practise and refine over time. With your expereince, you should completely feel empowered by the fact that you have the ability to move so many people with what you do.

Congratulations on being awesome.

i'd like to take a motor insurance firm to small claims court? The insurer business declined my claim, (I would go ahead and take to blame driver to small claims sadly I've no address to serve them or send a demand letter). One another driver was at fault but his particular insurance provider states that there is actually a difference in this statements to make sure they have to take the word of their insured vs. my word. It is my opinion they acted in undesirable trust and did not carry out a proper investigation would this be considered a valid claim in small claims court? I wish to go ahead and take responsible drivers insurance carrier (not my own) to small claims for the damages to my car.
