Do you have an online Support Group?

There’s a phenomenon that occurs in our house ... I wonder if the same thing occurs at yours ?

Whenever I mention craft, blogging, or anything I see on Instagram or Pinterest my partner’s eyes glaze over and I’m quite sure there is a loud brass band playing in her head!

Thankfully, I know exactly where to go where my triumphs, concerns and questions  will be celebrated, mulled over and answered.

It’s a secret online group full of fabulous women.

We gather on a daily basis in between running a business, keeping a household clean, our families fed and being crafty in our own ways. It’s informal, positive and did I mention secret?

I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to these women. Whenever I need help, advice, a kick up the butt or a pat on the back they are who I turn to.

Usually before I tell my partner my grand plans, I have asked these women first.

The advice and reassurance is invaluable. When gathered together for good, women truly can be an incredible force can’t they?

Of course, nothing beats a coffee with a friend in person, but in between times, catching up online can be just as good.

Do you have a network of lovely people that you can turn to ... any time of the day or night?

  1. I've been part of various groups through the years and am still active in one jewellery group in Australia, one in the US and a group that specialises in art/craft shows in the US. (Whilst the latter is limited geographically, I've learned so much from them!)
