What is community and does it matter? 11

Hello Kraafters!

UPDATE – We have upgraded to Kraafters Kommunity 2.0 –  JOIN OUR Kraafters Kommunity on Discord

I want to share with you one of my favorite aspects of Google Plus and one of the best benefits of the Kraaft Shaak…drum roll please…Kraafters Kommunity!

The community mind set is something special. When you think about what community means, what it should look like, and how it works you begin to realize the potential a community can have for your passions and for your business too.

I found that, in my mind, the Kraafters Kommunity was going to be a neat place for people who might like crafts of all kinds to hangout together and who knew what would happen after that?

BOY! Was I surprised when only 6 months after seriously devoting my attention to this community, I found it flourishing in ways I never dreamed!  It turns out that it has nothing to do with me, either!  I went on vacation in July for the whole month, and to see the community thrive, blossom and continue to grow without me doing a thing!!!

Here is my proof for YES! It DOES Matter! with a list (and some examples) of some of the things that go on in this wonderful place:

  • deep discussions regarding fears
  • intimidating craft challenges, whipped!
  • encouragement
  • support
  • uplifting and prayers
  • talent, lots and lots of talent
  • craft room discussions
  • storage solutions
  • safe haven for creative hearts
  • Kraaft It Together hangouts
  • member kreated videos (even more talent)
  • special projects that matter to the heart

If you have not already joined this incredible extension of the Kraaft Shaak, you are missing out on so much – I would just hate for you to lose another second – here is the link to join the Kraafters Kommunity NOW!

About Heather Kraafter

First and foremost, I am a child of the One True King! I am blessed to be married to my best friend and was privileged to stay home and raise my boys. I began the Kraaft Shaak in 2010 as a way to experiment with crafting mediums and to teach others what I have learned and have come to enjoy it as my creative passion. Taking the 'show on the road' is my latest passion and each day is one step closer to that dream. Thanks for being a part of that journey too!

    It was through Google Plus that I found you, and that was nearly a year ago. You and the Kraafters Kommunity are my favorite parts about being on Google Plus. I love the kind of people you attract. Hanging out with all those talented people has helped me discover a few of my own talents too, and I can’t begin to describe the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction I get from that.

    Thanks sticking with it (I know it hasn’t always been easy). You are a bright spot in my life.

    Just found your channel on YouTube on the tree videos from June 2014. Loved it. I have been a mixed media artist for 2 years now (I feel very presumptuous calling myself that as I haven’t always been crafty and didn’t think I had it in me) I loved your sense of community and would love to join. I’m not sure about what it entails. I’m not very tech savvy. That being said,I would be interested in your channel. Thanks,Candy
