The Crafts Report Magazine

I'm in the Crafts Report magazine this month in their "Insight: Jewelry" section! Their web site hasn't been updated yet with the current month's edition, but I just got my copy of the magazine today, and it's there! (I can't help it, I still get tickled when I see my name in print -- I doubt that will ever change!)

The Crafts Report is one of two magazines that I find invaluable as an artisan who makes a living at her work (Sunshine Artist is the other). It covers business information specific to arts and crafts small businesses -- how to prepare for retirement, how to get the most out of a show, how to handle taxes, etc.

The "Insight" section is different each month. This month it was jewelry, but sometimes it's about toys, fiber art, metal, wood, etc. The section lets artists share their business thoughts with other artisans who do the same type of thing.

If you're a crafter and don't already get this magazine, DO! And be sure to check out the deadlines for the "Insight" deadlines, and submit your thoughts!

  2. I love that one, too! I sold it for Not Nearly Enough, but I know it went to a good home so I'm very happy about that! I doubt I could ever make the wire do the same thing -- it was a total accident, as are most of the things I make that I like the most.
