i am waking...
blinking, stretching, and looking around the world with interest after a season of semi-hibernation. There are so many things that I want to learn about and try, but I don't know where to begin. I am also a little afraid; and don't want to plunge in, waste a lot of money (and probably time), and just end up with a lot more piles of accumulated mess scattered around our home.
These are my current curiosities:
making a cloth doll
These are some of my questions:
How do i get started? (i mean the very beginning - don't assume i know anything - because i really don't)
What supplies do i need?
What resources are there?
How can i find community?
These are some of my parameters:
*finances are an issue; so frugality is a must
*there are no craft or hobby stores within my city
*also no garage sales, flea markets, or Goodwill
*no used English book stores (or anything in English for that matter)
*there are material markets and basic hardware and paint stores and small yarn and cross-stitch stores (cross-stitch has become very popular here in the last five or so years)
*there are some small basic art supplies stores near college street
As far as i can tell, most of these forms of creative expression have just not taken off in my city yet. i would love to find someone online, as well as someone right here where i live, to share these interests and pursuits with.
Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to share your wisdom, experience, and passion; thereby pushing a little fledgling dreamer out of the nest and into the big world of creative discovery.
Tell me the truth, "Am i overstepping my resources and abilities?"
