Are you a painter or potter, a weaver or knitter, a woodcarver or sculptor? Or even a baker, a candy maker or a metal smith?! What is it you do that expresses your creativity? Do you love to sew and make useful gifts for the home? Maybe you like to crochet or make cool things from leather. Do you say, “I’m not a professional artist", when others ask you if you sell your creations? What do you do with all the wonderful pieces you create. Would you like to see them on display in a retail shop and available to purchase seven days a week?
