I am currently saving (really hard) to turn my hobby into a career. I am longing to open my own little craft shop, but decided I should research as much as possible and show my commitment by undertaking a papercraft qualification.
About a month ago I started the course and submitted 3 cards for unit 1. The first part requests a 'receipe card' completing for each card/papercraft item you make. The 'receipe card' is basically a list of items used, considerations made and an evaluation of your end product. I can't say I found it easy, as I find it very difficult to evaluate myself on any task, but after al lot of pondering I did it and submitted my coursework.
A week later I received my result...a pass credit! That's the top mark I could get, so I am very pleased with myself!!
I've now started unit 2, which is working on displaying my work publically. As I want to open my own store, what better way to start 'advertising' myself than to have a blog, so here it is!
As I make more cards and learn new techniques, I hope to keep the blog updated. I always appreciate feedback, so if you like/don't like what you see, please feel free to comment.
I will post my unit one creations for all to see.
