I spent my weekend at Sakuracon, an anime convention in Seattle (which is why this is getting posted on Monday instead of Sunday). I spent two days walking around seeing people sell their products and being surrounded by so many talented small business owners. It was really rad.
I’m fortunate enough to have a ton of really awesome, talented friends who are following their dreams of having their own businesses. They inspire me regularly to try new things regardless of whether they may be challenging. Thanks to the help of my friend Becky, owner of The Pink Samurai, I made my very first pin!! It was a wonderful experience and made me want to try out more design work. I never saw myself as a creative person when it came to drawing. I could craft but if I had a cute illustration idea I could never translate it into something.
Thanks to so many inspiring friends, I’d like to try out more creative ventures in my free time. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do but never took the time to look into. I’d like to start small and see what interests me.
What about you? Do you have someone in your life who inspires you to take a leap and try new things? What is your dream?
