Hello and thank you for visiting, we are happy to have you on our site! What is ArtCraftSecrets.com all about and how can it help you? Well, let us start by sharing our beliefs before giving you more details:

We believe that creativity is a beautiful and precious gift that more people should enjoy.

We believe that expressing our creativity makes us happier as individuals and allows us to stand out as unique human beings.

We believe that you don’t need to be talented or gifted to express your creativity so long as you enjoy what you do – be it knitting, crafting, sewing, painting or drawing.

We believe that the longer you craft, the more skilled you become.  That’s why turning your hobby into a home based business is a natural transition for many crafters.

We also believe that learning how to turn your creativity or your hobby into profit shouldn’t cost the earth, or leave you wondering what works and what doesn’t.

Don’t worry though, we get it.

We understand how overwhelming it can be to start or run your own art or craft business. We also appreciate that most creative people are neither business people nor sales people. The good news is that you don’t need to be. There are dozens of effective and simple ways to spread the word about your work without either being a business genius or a marketing wizard!

The bottom line is:

  • Can you see yourself with a flourishing handmade business, selling to a wide audience of interested buyers?
  • Can you visualize yourself being appreciated, well-regarded and recognized for your creative skills?
  • Can you imagine what it would feel like to have the homemade business you presently only dream about?

Whether you want to teach art and craft, write about it, publish a craft book or sell your handmade creations, our goal is to inspire you so you get more inspired! How? By helping you to take your hobby, passion or skills to the next level using some simple but effective tips.

Don’t let your craft store or home business get lost in a crowded marketplace!

You see, ‘hoping’ or ‘wishing’ that things will turn around at some point is all fine and dandy – but it’s not a good business strategy. Make no mistakes: all successful art and crafters have at least two things in common – the right mindset + the right tools to promote their craft. This is why we will share some self development tips and simple promotion strategies in our articles so you can learn how to make a living from your creative skills.

Chances are, you might already be half-way there, and you may only need to tweak a thing or two to reach your final goal. Then again, you may be a skilled hobby crafter, wanting to turn your talent into a business, but not knowing how or where to start. Either way, you’ve come to the right place!

Feel free to browse our content by visiting our List of Posts or Articles & Tips pages. And if you are interested in a particular topic,  then you may also browse our different categories: art and craft, creativity, personal development, promotion and tutorials.

Again, our goal is simple, we truly want to help regardless of what level you are at, this is what our site is all about. Hopefully, by taking as much as we can from your learning curve, it will help you to save money and time, so that you can focus on what you do best: create.

Enjoy your visit!
