Make it Lucky

Why the super generic name “make it lucky”?

CARDS ON THE TABLE …this blog is one big personal branding experiment for me. This is just not something that comes naturally to me, but I hope you at least like my ideas and won’t mind the sorta awkward progression of me trying to get better at photography and brand establishment. I named this blog as such for the same reason the only tattoo I would ever get would be…a flower. Generic is understandable, vastly interpretable, relatable, SEO friendly, and hard to tire of.

What is the point of this blog?

So many of my friends say “I’m not crafty.” I really believe everyone should be crafty- and that it’s easier to be than anyone thinks, so I post my tried-and-true budget and lifestyle-conscious project ideas. woot.
If you’re like me, you’re a millennial, you’re in the most competitive job market ever- and finding direction in your life, just a few years beyond college is hard. If you read this blog, and take up some projects, it will help you learn to be crafty, something that people stopped bothering to teach you when you were 5, which is too bad, because being a creative, resourceful person is always a good leg up. I call that making your own luck (ooooh is it starting to make sense, now?)

Can we collaborate somehow?

Do you have an angel policy?

Yes, thank you for asking! You can read about it here.

Not currently, but stay tuned. I do have a shop on Ravelry for some nicely formatted versions of my patterns.

Who are your affiliates?

I am an Amazon and Joann’s Associate. I always advocate for shopping local, but in other cases, I realize it is easier/far more economical to buy online, so I will provide links where I think it may be helpful for readers to have them. It is not my goal to spam you – making money off of this blog is rather low priority. If you want to sponsor me though…I’m listening 😬
