“Unfortunately, to label yourself as A Creative has become the white truffle oil of self- description; Overused and it doesn’t make, whatever, any easier to swallow “

It is a fact that YouTube, Etsy, and Instagram can make some people with talent and skill stand out, and that is a very good thing.

What needs to be addressed is, that just because you’re attractive (or you think you are) you made a lamp once, and your friend said, “you could sell that you know?” does not launch you into the ranks of “skilled maker, supermodel, slash creative whatever”…what it makes you is someone stealing the thunder of hardworking, dedicated, committed crafts-people dodging bullets from posers and hobbiest, holding a poorly made, ready to fall apart leather wallet.
