Are you a woodworker? A gardener? An aspiring master chef or a wanna be master artist? Have your homemade quilts become heirlooms, or are they still pictures in your mind? I am, according to my Craftsy ** order history, a seamstress, a photographer, an artist, a furniture maker and painter and refinisher, a pastry chef and cake artist, a pizza maker extraordinaire, a master knife wielder, and a quilter of amazing skill! And that doesn’t count my wish list!
Are you familiar with Craftsy? It is a great resource of high quality, online classes covering a huge variety of topics (as you may have gathered! :-)). I am currently working through two of their courses: “Complete Knife Skills,” one of their free classes, and “The Basics of Digital Photography,” which I purchased 50% off. I was planning to write about these courses once I had finished them, but since Craftsy is currently offering a 50% off sale until midnight Monday, March 16th, I wanted to very quickly let you know about them.
Because I was unfamiliar with the products, I first selected a few of the free mini courses to test their product. I have not finished the first one — the knife course — but I can say that I have discovered I’ve been using knives wrong all my life! 😮 I am only on the first lesson of the photography course, but I have already learned so much more about what all of those settings on that camera mean than I ever would have gleaned from the manual (remember, I’m trying to get out of automatic mode on that new camera!). Please (please!) show me, don’t make me read it.
“Why Not?” take a quick peek and see what Craftsy can offer you. Oh, by the way, that order history I mentioned in the first paragraph? All of those except the photography class were free mini courses. Can’t beat trying it free to see how it works…except the money back guarantee. That’s pretty sweet. Oh, and the 50% off…
