Haven’t heard about The Creative’s Corner?
Well, you should, and I’m happy to tell you all about it!
What is The Creative’s Corner?
If you’re on Facebook, you know that groups are really big now. They allow you to hang out with people who have a common interest, interact, and learn a lot about group content.
For a while I’ve wanted to find a way to really connect blog readers and to give you a place to share your projects and ideas too.
Last year I tried to do it with Your Gallery. That wasn’t as successful as I had hoped, but I knew you had amazing ideas and projects because you’ve shared them in emails, and I was determined to find a way that would work.
So this year I decided to give a private Facebook group a go – and it clicked!
We’re still a small group (around 400 members), but the creativity abounds!
How It Works
When you join The Creative’s Corner, you gain full access to post your projects or questions to the entire group. Members often post pictures of projects they’ve made or are working on – or ask questions when they get stumped or want to get advice from someone within the group who has experience with a particular craft or project.
New posts will show up within your Facebook newsfeed and continue showing up as long as you “like” or comment on posts now and then (per Facebook algorithms – ugh!). Algorithms consider likes or comments as interest on your part, and will therefore continue to provide them in your feed.
Of course, you can always go straight to our group page within Facebook to scroll through content and access videos and photos posted.
What We Do
Since our January launch, I’ve tried a few things within our group. Some have worked. Others haven’t been as successful, so I’m constantly tweaking and making changes that will make our group a fun, inspiring, and encouraging place. Here’s what we’re currently doing:
- Weekly themed topics of creative projects.
- I post a Facebook LIVE video on Thursday afternoons, focusing on a variety of topics. Can’t catch it live? The replay is always available in the group and you can still leave comments or questions during replays.
- We have occasional challenges and giveaways you can participate it.
- Share your own projects – or projects you’ve found on the web that you want to share with the group.
I have more ideas in the works and am always “all ears” for any suggestions members have for adding new features.

But I’m not on Facebook –
I understand that not everyone is a fan of Facebook (and I do have my moments too!). Based on responses to the Spring Reader’s Survey, I’m working on plans for a similar concept right here on the blog. Watch for updates in the newsletter, and feel free to contact me anytime with your questions, comments, or suggestion.
No Matter Where You Are…
Regardless of whether you’re a part of The Creative’s Corner, a similar group on the blog, a newsletter subscriber, or an occasional reader, my goal is that the content you interact with will inspire and encourage you in your creative journey, and that you’ll enjoy it every step of the way!
