Hand painted scarves nearly always come from a solopreneur’s workshop, and ohmygoodness are they ever beautiful! I love scarves of all colors, and I keep them forever. I have an apricot color silk scarf that I got in Paris over 40 years ago, and a pink flowered scarf that matched my pink suit from 30 years ago, and several that I got in art fairs and museum shops. I have several dozen very beautiful scarves, and I still buy more! It is one of my true weaknesses. There are simply so many kinds to choose from: silk, of course,...Read More
An online clock maker has a real challenge: how do you take that iconic circle and create something that is truly wonderful? I know this is an issue because I’ve tried a number of time to find really interesting clocks, and it has been a challenge. Even finding an image for this post was challenging. But that wonderful cat chasing the gold fish is exactly what a creative clock maker is looking for: a creative almost-circle. Look around you right now. How many creative clocks do you see? How many creative almost-circles do you see? mmmmm. Probably not very...Read More
Round up your creative gene and toss it into baby quilts! There are so many design and color options that you should stay busy for a loooooong time to come.

A well-made baby quilt will last nearly forever. There are some huuuuge advantages to committing to a baby quilt business. Just Look at the Marketing Potential: Your primary client is pretty easy to tie down: Grandparents. Parents...Read More

The pink costumed ones above are actually string puppets created in India. Aren’t they gorgeous! There are so many kinds of puppets that creating a blog just on “puppets” may be...Read More
When I was very young my mother gifted me several Russian porcelain ballerinas, much like in the picture. How I wish I had kept those treasures! A few years ago a dear friend gifted me a collection of six blue and gold Russian porcelain teacups and saucers. I still have those, and I thoroughly believe that tea tastes better when I use them. Alas, that is all I truly know of Russian porcelain. If you should happen to know more, or have a passion for learning more, this would be such a beautiful blog business to pursue. No matter...Read More
My love affair with journaling started with a blank journal that Oprah sent me. I think it was for an online meditation series, but the journal arrived long after the meditation series was over. “Mmmmm,” I recall thinking. “Whatever shall I do with this?” It was a nice journal, much too nice for my modest thoughts, and I was much too busy to do that journaling thing-y anyhow. So it sat on my bookshelf for many months. Then one day I took it with me when I went for a walk in the woods, and my poetry life came...Read More
Sometimes you just need to let the kid in your heart shine. Such a time is when I think of carousels. Oh the magical rides at the boardwalk when I struggled to reach for the brass ring. And I got a small carousel music box when I was about ten. I played it and played it, and danced around it too. I only shared it with very special friends since it was such a special gift. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you have a magical memory or two of carousel rides yourself. Creating a business around carousels...Read More
Fairies have burst online in a big, big way. And it is not just your traditional fairies. There are new fairies, fairies I have never heard of before. The image is of “Punky”, my steampunk fairy. I didn’t know there was such a creature until I got one as a gift. I’ve actually been tuned into fairies lately because I have a captivating statue of the Goddess Brigid. Brigid had fairies under her protection, as well as a number of other wonderful things. So I have been on the outlook for special fairies to give my Brigid a bit...Read More
You betcha! Thanks to the creative folks in Amazon, anyone can have an online business with movies and videos of all sorts. Creating movies has never been easy. The script, the actors, the director, the producer, the costumes, the special effects, the cutting and editing, etc., etc. A lot of work goes into making a movie, whether it is a success or not. Then there is the distribution. Movie distribution and screen time at independent movie festivals are both really tough to get. We have a great independent movie festival in my town, and I think they turn down...Read More
I need a bird house, a creative bird house, one perhaps made by an online entrepreneur. I don’t want a plain old bird house. I have a brand new house myself, and a brand new garden with brand new plants all over the place. This certainly deserves a creative, fanciful bird house. My local stores just don’t have any. The big box stores have the typical wood birdhouses, and I guess one of those would do. I could paint it different colors and put it on a pretty pole. But I really want a super nice birdhouse for my...Read More
