So, you want to be a designer?

Hi friends! I have been asked a lot via email and in Ask a Crafter comments about ways to make a living with your arts and crafts. One of the best ways is to be a designer and sell your designs, patterns or classes. You can even design projects for magazines or companies. I’ll give you some ideas in today’s art marketing video:

I hope that gave you some ideas! I make my income primary from the free videos I post online because you folks are kind enough to watch the youtube ads so big thanks for that! I get to do what I love and inspire others. I really have the best job and if I can help other make a living from their passions as well I feel doubly blessed! If you want to see all of my art marketing videos you can find them here. In case you want to find my digital product it is available through MyGrafico and the free shop I mentioned that works with Instagram in InSelly. Thanks so much for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Hi Lindsay.
    How do I find your stuff on Inselly?


  2. How interesting! I like learning about the “behind the scenes” stuff! I was wondering if you know specifically where rubber stamp makers go to find their designers or to purchase images to make into rubber stamps? I know sometimes they hire a specific designer, but surely they go around to certain places on the web to buy the rights to artwork etc. Thanks for sharing here. I have seen other online crafters asked these types of questions and they are much less willing to share the ins and outs of the business than you are!


  3. You are awesome, Lindsay. Thanks for sharing these tips. I will give this some thought to see if there is anything I can implement.
