I mentioned in a previous blog that I have my youtube channel up and running again, after much debate over whether I should start a fresh new one. I was recently in a contract with BBTV ( youtube agent who controls a lot of popular channels) on my craft channel and now that is no longer the case. My lack of interest in uploading sort of made them cut ties and I am in no way complaining. The channel now is back in my control and I have revamped it to be used again.
The problem with a craft only channel was that it never really fully encompassed me as a person and my varied life, therefore I would fall into lulls of boredom with trying to think of content.
I write, I DIY, I craft and I do a heck of a lot of other things besides write books, so my new channel will cover everything and not stick to a theme anymore. It will give me much wider scope and hopefully let you see more than just an author.
My website is being updated to have a few extra sections to include the Craft me, the DIY me and my events.
To remind you of what I used to film I am sharing an older tutorial which can be modified (I plan on doing so very soon and making some book themed rosettes for my giveaways!!! I reckon this very simple tutorial can be adapted and even changed for seasons or holidays. I know a lot of my readers like to make book related items and this is a great one for rewarding readers or making custom themed keepsakes.
That is why I have chosen to re-share this particular old video.
Its a tutorial on making yourself some cute and funky rosettes to give to your family or friends on birthdays, special awards, or even Christmas. Fun and easy to make. Make them to almost any colour or design theme.
