Hello,

I love to make all kinds of things, but lately I seem to be stuck on what to make next! I quilt, and draw, and knit and crochet, and make kiln formed glass. I'm working on expanding my portfolio. Any ideas on what to do next? Keeping in mind that I sell quite a bit on my online store?

Hi Cassandra, are you asking for ideas for something new to try? I am into mosaics and jewelry-making with resin and polymer clay. all very fun stuff and a great outlet for creativity.

for mosaics I'd look at my forum, everyone there is very friendly, helpful and talented. www.masgo.com. jewelry is such a HUGE category, I'd spend time researching online and in books to see what aspects interest you. you really ought to get a beginning mosaic book to get the basics down.
