In my head I have a bright white studio with huge windows and tons of empty wall space. In my head, I have a cameraman who will shoot and edit amazing videos that look like iPhone commercial with swanky, hipster tunes playing in the background. In my head, I’ll have a perfect manicure in each video and get it all done in one take. In my head, I look awesome in white skinny jeans…and that’s when you realize, things don’t always work out the way you see them in your head. Sometimes you just have to make do with what you have. Of course, I’d love to shoot videos in that imaginary bright white studio with empty wall space, but I share a craft space with my little baby – and if I shot footage of that room, you’d see toys and cardstock piled up and little handprint along the crib. You’d see the baby monitor taped down to the dresser because my child has figured out how to grab it and play with it in his crib. You’d see a pile of baby clothes that he’s outgrown and a dead succulent that never made it into a blog post. So, I’ll spare you the glamour of my “studio.” I’ll still give you videos though. Videos that I edit myself and don’t look anything like an iPhone commericial. One day maybe. Until then, you’re stuck with me and a collection of pretty awesome, easy, one-minute crafting tutorials that I’m calling Craft 101.
Craft 101 is all about getting beginners to dive into crafting with simple techniques that might be a little confusing. I’ve always wanted a library of videos and now they’re here! I add to this collection a few times each month and I hope you’ll check in to see what’s new. I’d also LOVE to hear your suggestions for Craft 101 content . What video tutorials would you like to see? What simple crafting techniques do you want to learn? Are there any Damask Love projects that you would like to see on video? Gimme the scoop on what you want! Unless you want me to wear a pair of white skinny jeans. Ain’t happenin.
