Make stuff

My newsletter aspires to inspire you to be more creative and confident by sharing advice, prompts, and links with you twice a month.

Hi! I'm Thomas.

Creativity is the driving force in my life. I am continually learning, and I want to share what I discover with you. Whether you are a maker, an artist, or just curious about creativity, I think that you’ll enjoy the emails that I send twice a month. They are full of links, articles, and prompts to inspire you to make stuff. Don’t take my word for it. Look at what I’ve sent so far.

What I mean by stuff

In my writing, stuff is anything that you bring into this world through an act of creative courage: art, music, photography, writing, DIY electronics, ceramics, etc.

I mean it when I say courage; it can be scary, even painful. Journaling counts as stuff, too (it’s writing that we usually keep for ourselves.)

✊🏾 I’m sure you’ve read and shared a lot of resources in the past couple of weeks. I’ve found AmΓ©lie Lamont‘s Guide to Allyship very helpful.

πŸ“š The Publik Library is a “creative accessibility initiative.” Dig through the Stacks for inspiration: books, films, videos, art, lectures, places, and people.

🌲 A great thread on Daisugi, a Japanese forestry technique. Unbelievable.
