Creative Gift Guide – 2018

Creative Gift Guide – 2018

If you are looking a gift for someone creative, I have just the post for you! My Creative Gift Guide has lots of creative present ideas, including books, kits and experiences. 

I remember the excitement of getting new toys, art kits and books as presents when I was a kid. You know, fun stuff that you actually interact with. Then as you get older, gifts start to become, well, a bit boring.

I though this would be a quick post to help everyone getting loops right, but it has turned into a masterpost of loop knowledge! I have tried to take this step by step for those who have never made a loop before as well as cover all the things that people on my workshops struggle with. Lets get started! Read more
