Have you ever stumbled onto a blog or site where you just say "YES!!!" to just about everything?
Well - I came across April from Blacksburg Belle just over 2 years ago (and I'm still saying Yes!!!).
|April Bowles-Olin of Blacksburg Belle|
If you are creative and want to take your business to the next level or need a refresher and direction for your handmade business - you should check out her website and even consider signing up for a few of her online classes or tutorials. She offers to the point, get off your tush and focus type of advice for the creative person. Here is a taste of some of her business freebies!
So as I am personally sitting here facing another period of creative burnout (seems to come around at least once a year) - I'm going to accept that it is ok to take a break, spend time with family, and then get some lists written out and priorities into place. I plan on going back to April's site as a reference to getting my business aspects cleaned up to reflect a pulled together creative self, which - by fall - should be nearing completion.
I hope that you find her site as helpful and inspirational as I have. And that there are so many other creative people out there that struggle with finding balance in life just as I do - all in our own ways.
Make sure to add her blog to your Blog Reads (I use BlogLovin) or sign up for her email newsletter - or better yet, to make sure you get everything - BOTH!

And if you are either Vegan or Gluten Free (or have friends that are, and want to impress them with some yummy home made treats the next time they visit) - she has awesome posts for recipes!
Thank You April for being so AWESOME and giving us pointers for keeping us on track!
