First let me say I am starting my day with this amazing video sent to me by my friend Carrie. It is people around the world signing and playing the song Stand By Me. It is so moving and beautiful. Motivating in its inspiration.
Tomorrow night (Wed. 4/1) I am on a Crafters Panels at MADE downtown Phoenix on Roosevelt Row. Visit their site to sign up to attend it is from 6 to 8 pm and cost $5. My pal the Crafty Chica and I will be talking about brand building for the crafter and how to stretch in many directions to shift as the times require. Come out and join us!
