Hi makers, Michelle from Two Brothers Blankets here! In today’s world, it can sometimes feel like shares and likes are what determine a person’s talents and abilities. With social media at our fingertips, it can be easy to compare and start to feel like we aren’t good enough. As makers and entrepreneurs, we tend to not only compare our lives, but our work and businesses as well. This is what I call the Comparison Trap, and it’s not a fun place to be. I'm excited to be a guest on the Our Maker Life blog today to share 5 tips to avoid this Comparison Trap so you can produce and grow in your own unique way, and have fun doing it!

Hi makers! Kristine of RESPONSIVE TEXTILES here! I’m so excited to share my craft with you today, but first, I have a confession. This has been weighing on me for a while, and it’s time to spill the tea. I’m a knitter who can’t do much with knitting needles. There it is! I said it! Beyond the basic knit and purl, I’m pretty lost, and it feels good to finally admit it. So how can I call myself knitter? Well, my craft is actually machine knitting.
Hey friends! It's Marisa from CentroKnits and I’m so excited to be a guest blogger today for the OML Blog! I'm here today to talk about a practice that has helped me immensely when creating new patterns: Creation Before Consumption.
Sup, makers! Nate here, as OML dream teamer and co-founder, I am really excited to share more than 200 photos from the Our Maker Life 2018 Chicago event that took place on July 14. You all know or may have heard how passionate I am about photography. Well, one thing I can tell you is that the details make the big picture and that we, the makers, are the details in this big picture - and it's truly cool to see. Ready to recap this year's event pic-wise with the OML team? Ok let's go.
