What do you do when you are stretched for time? You have so much to pack into a week and so little time?
This past week I was involved with Maker Cities (a new Etsy prototype) and their first one was launched in Victoria. It was a week of free workshops for the community to learn about Etsy. Workshops such as: “How To List on Etsy,” “Building Your Brand,” “Listings, Tags, How To Get Found on Etsy,” “Sea Glass Jewelry Workshop,” “Beginner & Advanced Photography,” were some of the many offerings. They also had a lovely launch party on Thursday night in the Fort Commons.
Caron and I were out every night this week, I continued to blog during the craziness and to top if all off we had the Moss Street Paint-In yesterday where we were selling our line of Organic Apothecary.
I was learning so much this week and dying to implement new ideas but I had to keep growing, learning and being present (see my post about being present here). It was one foot in front of the other and the knowing that eventually and end would be in sight.
Today I’m teaching the “Photography for Beginners” and looking forward to sharing my knowledge with others. It’s also been wonderful to meet so many new people who live in my city and have a passion for creating unique handcrafted items.
