Digital or Online, What’s the Difference?

Digital or Online, What’s the Difference?

Something interesting I have noted since I started publishing the tinyStudio Creative Life magazine, is the difference between ‘Online’ and ‘Digital’. Why is this important to me? And what is the difference? tinyStudio Creative Life magazine is a ‘digital’ magazine, this is why it is important to me 🙂 In the big picture, there isn’t any kind of earth shattering difference between the terms ‘digital’ and ‘online’, however in your day to day life, the differences between them can be

tinyStudio Creative Life, Issue 2 is Here!

It is here! We have a shiny new Issue of tinyStudio Creative Life magazine available now to all Subscribers! This time we get behind the scenes with some amazing spinning wheel creators, we have some awesome hands on tutorials, and we have the thoughts and ideas of some extremely inspirational fiber artists. After the launch of issue One I was feeling anxious about being able to match the quality and depth of Issue One, but I very quickly saw that

Introducing tinyStudio! Its a book! Its a new Magazine!

We live in a world of instant communications, digital lifestyles, and busy living, keeping us permanently ‘on’ and frequently feeling rushed and uncreative. Even in our lives as fiber artists we can find ourselves swirling around in a myriad of online courses, books, and YouTube tutorials with step by step instructions for a million different yarns. And then there are all the tools and toys: combs, wheels, e-spinners, drum carders, lazy kates… Do you feel a little overwhelmed at all

Fibery Goodies! Free Project to Spin and Wear!

A little while ago we brought you the ebook on how to approach and spin Multi-Media fibers such as those found in the wonderful Namaste Farm ‘ScrapBoxes’ or collections of various different fibers from your stash. This week I would like to offer you an extra treat that sprung from that original offering, and this is free for a limited time! When we were working on the Multi Media book projects we (the contributors) were challenged to share our own

Making A Splash with your Online Fiber Business

It is interesting to note that many fiber artists, including many of those taking the Golden Fleece Creativity Certificate course, are also in business AS fiber artists. For many people it is a natural progression, from passion to expansion to excess product, often selling locally at markets, but even more often selling fibers and yarns online. And yes, this online market world is a big place! Easy to get lost in the crowd, to feel a bit overwhelmed. What do

Tool Tips – Hackle!

(Photo courtesy of Majacraft) This week we are bringing a new course announcement (you’ll have to read to the end!!) and we are bringing you the first of our tool features, because, in fiberista language, ‘tool’ = ‘toy’…right?  So to start us off I am impelled to go straight to the Hackle, because it is my favourite. Nope, not because it’s cute or cuddly (it’s not), nor because it’s elegant or graceful, but purely because of what I can do

Coming up: New Resources and the FiberyGoodness shop

Its Friday, and I hope you are all looking forward to a weekend of much fibery goodness! For myself (Suzy), I would be pretty happy with a day off  and some extra time to spend with my fiber and dye stashes. In the meantime though, there are preparations to make, websites to be updated, information to be sent out and fiber kits to be assembled, because… dahdahdahhhh.. we are nearly ready to reopen enrollments for the next Journey to the
