Photo a Day for Creatives

#ctmonthinthelife

I’m planning to take part in a new photo a day challenge aimed especially at creative crafty types. It is called #CTMonthintheLife and is being run by Jess over at Create and Thrive. I took an online course with Jess last year all about running and growing your handmade business, and although I haven’t really been growing my Madeit store, I found she is a very savvy lady. I had the pleasure of…
