156 videos on my YouTube Channel

156 videos on my YouTube Channel

As of today, there are 156 videos on my YouTube Channel and none of them are longer than 10 minutes – most of them are just under 5 minutes. I have 15 subscribers and I am looking forward to getting to a 100. Sometimes this process is slow going and it’s a bit annoying but let’s be honest I started this to challenge myself and not how many subscribers I have. Here’s the thing I noticed that I am more and more comfortable recording content and be visible but I still have a bit of a challenge to do it all “live” – it’s like I can’t be bothered with all that. I am going to work through some of the thoughts and feelings behind…

Hexagon Stash Busting Crochet Along #1

It took me a minute to decide what kind of crochet along I wanted to make happen and settled on a Hexagon Stash Busting Project.

An update on my 90 Days of Creativity

An update on my 90 Days of Creativity

This is the time for an update 90 Days of Creativity to share with you what I noticed and I am going to tell you that I wake up in the morning and get all of the work I need to do so I can sit down and be creative. This means all my work for the Rebels Den, Life Tips To Go, my daily videos, and checking into my community are done before noon. I kicked it off with these pendants you see below – now they are finished and I just need to add them to my shop which will happen over the next couple of days. So I am noticing that I am more productive because I am so excited about this…

5-Months Video Challenge Update

5-Months Video Challenge Update

It’s time for a video challenge update and I have recorded, edited, and uploaded 124 videos since February. There are still days where I am not sure what I will talk about, what I want to share, or even how much of my life I want to share. But I started this challenge to not only get more comfortable with recording videos and to be more visible. I know that due to my upbringing and other experiences being seen has been one of my biggest challenges. There have been so many times where I felt or was told I didn’t matter, that what I had to say was stupid or that simply no one wanted to hear what was going on inside of my head….

90 Days of Creativity Challenge

90 Days of Creativity Challenge

I love a good challenge and 2021 seems to be full of them for me starting with my video challenge that began in February. But now I am creating 90 Days of Creativity.  Why 90 Days? As someone who has studied goal setting + achieving as well as from personal experiences – 90 days are ideal. They are just long and short enough to make some things happen.  There’s also something to be said about daily rituals about things that we want to do more of and so many things we can learn about ourselves in the process!  I know that your and my imagination are endless – you may think you will run dry but I found that quite the opposite will happen.   There’s…

Another Video Update

Another Video Update

I am getting more and more comfortable recording my video challenge – my next hurdle to overcome will be to eliminate all of the UMS I keep saying throughout. I suppose that’s because those videos are unscripted and with just a thought in my mind. A lovely side-effect is that videos I am recording for my crochet and wood-burning work are also becoming easier and I am less intimidated by teaching what I know. I suppose that was the whole point – to get comfortable not just behind the camera but in front of it and record video content for those interested. My goals are to help people not just through the Rebels Den but also learning a new craft! There’s something about the creative…

It’s about the challenge

It’s about the challenge

It is never about winning or losing but about the challenge! Those were the words I heard while committing to #75challenge. Now mind you I already committed to doing daily videos for my YouTube Channel, and run the edge challenge (I briefly mentioned it here). And let me just add that I haven’t had a “word of the year” for the last 3 years because none of it felt good to do but this morning, while on my first workout for the day, listening to my audiobook, I recognized that this year my words are: “Challenge yourself”. I am the type of person that goes all in – it’s the getting on the airplane at 18 without looking back, it’s the starting a business and…

Update on my YouTube Video Challenge

Update on my YouTube Video Challenge

I wanted to give an update on my YouTube Video Challenge and share some of the videos I’ve created. It’s amazing to me that when you set yourself a challenge, how easy things can unfold. Not only have I created videos consistently, but I have also been working on a few other projects that require video for things I’ve been putting off. As you can see, I’ve been recording, editing, and uploading every day! Now I am not going to lie, there are some videos that were already done – like the time-lapse videos – but I am still impressed with making it happen! I am trying to keep my videos between 5-10 minutes and so far that seems to be going well. Again, I…

A challenge to myself – Daily Video for 1 Year

Sometimes I think we all go mad with crazy ideas, like a challenge to myself – daily video for 1 year. I mean I talk about pushing the boundaries of the comfort zone quite a bit. And I am the first to admit I don’t love doing “live” videos and have been staying away from doing video altogether.  I’ve been slowly working on video content but even with all the inspiration, I’ve not done a great job. And since January was totally focused on working out my blog content for this blog here and The Rebels Den – I have a bit more time to pose a challenge to myself. And we will be facing a few changes and transitions over the next coming year…
