Making something feels good!

Hello, I'm LaraJane. I write about creativity; my own, and what I find in other's creativity that is inspiring. I believe in sharing ideas, techniques, and creative inspirations. This blog includes patterns and detailed instructions in projects that I have designed and created (See 'Craft' category). So, have a noodle around (there are 3 main categories, 'Creating', 'Clever' and 'Craft'); then go forth and make something! My latest interest is exploring illustration using pen, ink and watercolour and I'm going to share with you images of my attempts as they are completed (in other words, documenting my steep learning curve), (See 'Creating' category). I will always include any specific information I have learned through experimentation. I hope that this blog provides you, dear reader, with inspiration and useful information to help you along on your own creative journey. Happy days! LaraJane.
