Yay! Happy Tuesday everyone and let’s welcome the lovely Lucky to the blog. I had the awesome pleasure of meeting this lovely lady at a little clothes swap a month or two back and Lucky kindly gave me a ride back to where I was staying!
On the way we chatted about Etsy and craft-fairs and well I just had to check this lady out! Incredible! My mind was blown by her talent and I am just so excited to share her awesomeness! Watch out there are some serious skillz showcased here on the blog today!
My name is Lucky Jackson. I am a artist and illustrator currently working on a project where I embroider a new piece of artwork every day for the next year.http://365luckydays.blogspot.ca/
I am currently selling some of the patterns from the 365 Project in my Etsy shop and lots of new patterns are coming soon!
I have been making things for as long as I can remember. I have a fondness for the rain as it means I can stay inside all day and make crafts. I am a huge culture vulture and love everything to do with the arts.
Long Live Indoor recess!

3 ways you stay inspired?
My kids are a huge inspiration. They have the most incredible imaginations.
Notice the little things. The small details that make you happy.
Using a journal to jot down ideas, always. I have tons of these journals and revisit them when the well is dry.

Getting to be a kid again. Pretty much my days are full of Arts and Crafts.
Art and Craft shows and fairs. It’s the highlight of my year being able to show people my work in person.

3 words of wisdom for others starting out in selling their crafts on Etsy or online?
Do something different and be unique.
Don’t compare yourself to others. (tough but true)
Do what you love, being and artist/crafter is a tough racket and you really have to have a passion for what you are making. It always shows in your work.
