Arts and crafts comprise a whole host of activities and hobbies that are related to making things with one’s own hands and skill. These can be sub-divided into handicrafts or “traditional crafts” (doing things the old way) and “the rest”. Some crafts have been practiced for centuries, while others are modern inventions, or popularisations of crafts which were originally practiced in a very small geographic area. This explanation came from Wikipedia encyclopedia.
At the top paragraph, Wikipedia stated about the crafts that have been practiced for centuries. It means that your hobbies in arts and crafts has been practiced in this world since our great great grand father still alive. At that time, crafts just as one of their main activities in the communities. The inventions are not purposely in generating income for their own.
Lately, I mean in this modern information technology era, crafts were created to be one of the profitable inventions to make. If you search in the internet for “arts and crafts”, you will find thousands or up to millions of websites those are providing for any kind of “arts and crafts” activities.
Most of these “arts and crafts” websites are focusing on selling finished goods while others concentrate on giving tips and tricks in crafts making. In the internet itself, you can manipulate your own skills and expertise in crafts to turn it into a profitable business income.
Like an offline business, selling crafts online needs some advance and additional knowledge and skill to make it as your dream come through. What kind of online crafts business you can make?
There are some brilliant ideas to sell or turn your hobbies in arts and crafts into profitable business income. One of its is through moving virtual images. People that having same extra hobbies like you in arts and crafts will tend to watch moving virtual images. The idea is like this, record your “How to make” arts and crafts with your own or rented video cam, then put it in your own simple website or video site like Youtube.com and wait until visitors ask to purchase your crafts products. At that time, you will see money will pour in into your account unstoppable.
This is another idea in arts and crafts business online. If you are an expert in wood or ice or any sculpting things, put it in a moving image first before you start to sell it. A customer who is interested to buy your products will be amazed on how the crafts product has been made. This idea came to me while I was watching News at my place. The News showed a Japanese who is an expertise in sculpting woods to become crafts things such as wooden horse and eagle. He managed to sculpt a piece of wood to be a creative look like living thing. I was very amazed with his special handcraft that make it a good idea in promoting their own goods to the public.
This kind of moving virtual ideas have already been implemented by some of the craft lovers all around the globe in their own sites but why not some of us who are already talented and gifted by God but have not yet revealed their skills in any kind of place to show their skills in arts and crafts publicly.
A gift from God should be shared with other people. So, that it won’t become a wastage for your whole life. Some motivator said if you share your own knowledge to other people around you, your knowledge could enhance bigger and bigger. It means that if you have some knowledge or experience in arts and crafts but no idea on how to share it with others, learn it with anybody who already went through it and take it as a guideline to start your own business.
As a conclusion, in today’s’ world, if you have your own arts and crafts secret knowledge or skills, you have an advantage of making money out of it. Try to maximize the use of internet to get more exposure of your arts and crafts skills and one of it is through moving virtual images.
