I threw myself into Blog Inc and Craft Inc…and I continue to use them as resources as I navigate my way through the world of blogging. Some of the material in the books may not apply directly to your goals…and if that is the case, just skip to the next chapter! There are nuggets of wisdom throughout and you can pick and choose how you want to apply the information to your own goals as a creative blogger and crafter. The Craft Inc Planner is a great way to make sure you “do your homework” and iron out all the details for your personal business.
For years, I used the plain ol’ camera bag that you can find at most electronic stores…then I found Jo Totes! These handbags area all style …and function! The Betsy tote is my personal favorite but if you’re looking for a large tote, check out their Missy tote. The Missy can carry a 15″ Macbook Pro, while the Betsy is perfect for the 13″ model. I especially love how versatile these bags are. With the velcro inserts, you have everything you need to protect your lenses and camera, but if you’d like to use it for everyday purposes, you can do that too! The colors options are fabulous and so much more appropriate for the creative blogger. Say goodbye to those boring camera bags!
Jossie has been a Damask Love reader and friend for years and I am so excited that she’s a part of today’s gift guide picks. She’s started her own Etsy shop filled with customizable tees and treats. When I saw her “Blogging is my Jam” tee on Instagram, I knew I had to have it – you should probably have it too. I’ve worn my tee out several times and it’s a great conversation starter! People want to know about your blog and before you know it, you’ve got a new blog friend!
