How Are You Building Your Justice League

How are you building your Justice League?  And by that, I mean, who are your crafty friends?  Where do you go to be with like-minded people who understand the need to own every single color of the Nuvo Crystal Drops, who get just as excited when there is a new coupon or free shipping on your favorite craft site?  Where do you find them at?

Having a core group of people who understand your passion is key for so many reasons
  • Camaraderie
  • Friendship
  • Brainstorming
  • Growth

Pinterest is a great resource to use when you are looking for HOW to do something.
Etsy is for when you want someone to make something FOR you.
Google is there to supply the INFORMATION you need.

Who do you need in your community?
  • Shop owners
  • DT Members
  • Crafting friends
  • Influencers
  • Card sellers

Why do you need these people in your Justice League?
  • Learn new techniques
  • Find inspiration
  • Build friendships
  • Brainstorm
  • Encouragement

If you are looking for an in-person community:
  • Check your local craft shops and sign up for classes - Use Craft Store Finder
  • Look for events in your area like the Crafty Happy Hour
  • Do a search on the Stampin’ Up site for classes around town
  • Host a class of your own

If you want to focus on an online community,

What groups are you looking to join, build or find?  Share with us your visions of a perfect Justice League!
