I have been enjoying the process of making small DIY blog posts as I create and its been fun to share them and spread the love. If you are in the Infinite Buddhas of Compassion Project group on FB I have uploaded a PDF tutorial to teach you how to paint this lovely Buddha in the Madhubani Style (Traditional Indian Folk Art) Its a wonderful experience so if you have not yet joined us please do join us soon. It would be wonderful to have you share your energy with the world.
Some of you may already know I love creating jewellery and by far I have been loving Craftsy to learn a lot. And I enrolled for a new class on Craftsy last week. yay. Its called Wire Wrapped Stones, Crystals and Clusters. I am loving Aga Kruks lessons so far. I have never worked with crystals before so this is going to be fun. I love Craftsy's video quality and the fact that you can take notes online to refer back and that the class is available for life. Takes away the pressure.
I also enrolled for the FREE mini class Figure Drawing Atelier class and Painting Flowers in Acrylic class. Yes they do have a whole lot of fine Art workshops too.
New discovery today. In addition to wonderful online courses and craft supplies, Craftsy also has an independent online pattern store that lets anyone upload and sell downloadable e-patterns with no fee! Yay I had no idea. I have been recently hit by the DIY and tutorial bug. So this could be fun.
How do you add a pattern to Craftsy and start your pattern store? It’s easy!
1. Make sure you have a Paypal account. All pattern transactions happen through Paypal, and Craftsy requires that you have a Student, Premier, or Business account in order to sell patterns.
2. Put your pattern in .pdf format. You can’t upload any patterns to the online pattern store unless they’re a .pdf file format, so if they’re currently saved as a Word doc, .jpg, or other file format, you must convert it to a .pdf before you upload it to Craftsy.
3. Include a photo. All patterns must have at least one photo to accompany them, but you can add up to five photos. Colorful, interesting photos tend to work the best for catching our members’ eyes!
4. Fill out the pattern description. We will ask you some basic questions around your pattern making it easier for Craftsy folk to find your pattern and know what your pattern is for. Make sure you have info about your pattern handy for this step.

Have fun. Happy creating.
