This time however, I resisted buying any books or magazines on new creative techniques. Instead I left the book store (2 hours later and with a bored and cranky son) with "Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby Into a Business," by Meg Mateo Ilasco. You see, unlike my creative projects and working online, reading is something I can do while still being an arm's reach of my clingy son while he plays. So I zipped through the first 3 chapters this morning, and I can assure you: This is NOT your traditional craft business book! This is a craft business book pulsing an indie vibe; from the interviews of indie artists sprinkled throughout right down to the retro olive and blue color scheme. I'm so excited about this book and what it can do for me. I think I've found my support group! Over the next couple of weeks (even though it shouldn't take that long to read), I will share what I learn and reflect on the business aspect of my creativity.
Favorite Quote from Chapter 1: "Trust your own instincts; the path you choose and the fruits of your labor will be unique and the outcome could be even better than you imagine."
