Vlog Wednesday No. 2

Unfortunately no ‘Vlog’ this week.  I’ve had a couple of busy days at work and a rather sluggish weekend in terms of creating my Art.


However, I do feel that I have finally got my head around Pinterest, which I am absolutely addicted to.  I can now save inspirational pictures in one place, instead of individually saving images or copying and pasting into a word document.  The Pinterest board system creates a visually interesting page to look at and I love the fact it is possible to search images discovered by others who are interested in the same themes as me.


The process of pinning and the way it allows me to organise my boards has helped me to refine the aesthetic style that truly inspires me.  I have noticed that there is a common thread running through the themes I have chosen, which has provided me with a clear direction that I intend to explore further in my art.

I have been avidly pinning over the last week and already I am gaining followers.  But the real skill will be to ensure that I have my work pinned onto other people’s board, which should promote traffic to my blog and eventually my Etsy store.


Hilary Pullen has posted an excellent article that suggests a variety of ways to attract traffic to your sight and has inspired me to try out her suggestions.

Cutting My Own Hair

 

It’s been a while since I’ve been to the hair dressers!  Way too long in fact.  So I decided to investigate how easy it would be to cut my own hair, considering how much of it I have have.  Thankfully Youtube did not let me down and within watching the first two tutorials I found the information I needed and felt confident that this was achievable.

As this blog is partly to do with new beginnings, I felt it would be fun and appropriate to make a video of my first attempt at cutting my own hair.  This is not intended to be a tutorial, just sharing some ideas I’ve picked up from other youtube channels and sharing the results.
