Craft Britannia Shop of The Week #44, ChanelledCreations

Our latest CraftBritannia Shop of the Week Ana creates colourful and uplifting art – find them in her shop ChanelledCreations. Today Ana talks to us about her work.

Describe your “typical” working day or week

I wake up and take 10-15m to manage my money and set an intention and action for the day. Have a shower, have breakfast and check my emails and see whether there are any orders and Readings. I take a walk, then work on any work related actions I have for the day. I have lunch at around 1pm and then perhaps go for another walk. I continue working on my actions for the day until 5 or 6pm. I also spend some time writing in my journal, meditating or practicing yoga. My days vary and each day is different depending on work and new projects, alongside events and collaborations. Sometimes if I am feeling inspired I may create a new piece of artwork.

What advice would you give someone taking up your craft for the first time?

Tell us about what inspires and motivates you

Life, experience and nature are my main motivators because without them I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m very grateful for this.
