SceniCreations: The Beginning!

Hello Everyone!

You may be wondering where my 48 Days posts have gone. Well it's partly me being lazy and partly being busy. I have put 48 Days on a hold for a bit. I know that isn't how you are supposed to do it but oh well.

So now let's move on to the main topic, SceniCreations! What is SceniCreations you ask? Well it's a little business/Etsy shop that I created! The last few months I have been building a few water fountains and have really enjoyed it. After reading 48 Days it gave me the idea to attempt to make it a way to make money. I then had to come up with a name. I wanted it to be something nature like because everything I make looks like natural things. I then came up with Scenic, I was thinking of nice views, mountains, lakes, and valleys. This all fit what I wanted what I was making to look like. The second part of the name, well I don't think I need to explain it. So now I have Scenic Creations, I looked around and googled it and well... there are a lot of places called Scenic Creations. I wanted my name to be unique and easy to find. This is how I ended up with SceniCreations, also the two c's next to each other bugged me,so one had to go.

I was thinking about things that I could make and realized that fountains are limited. There are many things you can do with them  but there all still generally the same. I want a variety of things to make, this also helps keep me motivated. If I keep doing something new I won't get bored of it, this is why I don't like being a cashier, same thing over and over again for hours on end. I came up with three general categories of things for me to make; fountains, game terrain, and natural looking sculptures. All of these thing require the same general process to make but each have something diffe
rent about them. The fountains and sculptures are the same other than the sculptures you don't need a place for the water to go or an area for a pump. The game terrain is much smaller and needs to be more precise so it will blend in well on a board and with other pieces. If you are wondering what game terrain is, it is things like this  http://www.mind-games.com/temp40/table%20terrain.JPG , it is used for many different table top games.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been pulling everything together, making an email, twitter, etsy shop, and Facebook page. I still have a lot to learn and figure out but I made it to the point where I can open up the shop! You can check it out here! http://www.etsy.com/shop/SceniCreations or Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/SceniCreations or Twitter! https://twitter.com/SceniCreations or E-mail me!
