It can feel overwhelming to be a beginner in a craft that you are interested in. Especially if you do not have that iron clad support you need or someone to hold your hand and take you through the process
The internet is full of resources, but that can feel overwhelming as well, because a lot of contradicting information can be confusing for someone who has little prior knowledge on a topic of interest
That’s why I decided to put together a list of helpful blogs that are geared specifically towards newbies. I hope it helps you-credit( take lessons.com)
