After thinking long and hard I have decided to move on from Handmade Success. I started working here as a virtual assistant and then quickly became the blog editor back in 2010. I have loved every moment! I took the whole site on myself in 2014 and updated the Etsy Kit earlier this year. I have known for a while that I have wanted to combine my experience on the blog with my 10+ years as a yoga teacher. I did that for the first time creating “Rejuvenate + Create: Self-Care For Creatives” ebook and absolutely loved sharing from that at the Movers & Makers Summit in February of this year.
That trip to Charleston started a flood of ideas and I have just been so excited to take them on! I joined Marie Forleo’s B-School and have been working on www.KerryBurki.com and sharing here for the last couple of months. I revamped this site and was so excited about the new look.
I realized that I need to bring all of my efforts and ideas under one umbrella. They don’t all fit under Handmade Success and I think it is time for me to close this chapter so I can start writing my next one. I have started taking steps to create my dream life based on my experience as a yoga teacher and working with creatives. I want to help others move forward and create their amazing lives also.
This is what I have been up to:
- Monthly challenges on my site and in my Facebook group – these will help you release stress, bond with others and feel good about yourself.
- Working one-on-one with people offering a custom yoga sequence, breathing techniques and affirmations to help them get unstuck and become more creative, productive, confident and happy. Stay tuned for a special offer!
- Self-image magazine project combining photography and handmade this summer!
- Self-Care For Everyday – 4 week course that will teach you how to take care of yourself in small but meaningful ways throughout your day. Coming September 2015 online.
- Speaking events both in person and online.
I am sharing these so you can see that this change is a positive one! I am sharing so can get these out into the world and out of my head. Some of these are things we might be able to work on together.
- If you want to see more of what I have been up to then go to www.KerryBurki.com – I just got professional photos done to that will be up there soon. SO exciting!

Summer is here in Arizona and I thought a giveaway would be a great way to end the month of May! I discovered Kate Koten of 4 Melodic Suns last year and just love her adorable and colorful accessories and jewelry. I especially love what she has to say about creating:
“There are so many things that I love in this world, but not many things compare to the wonderful expressions of creativity. I find the act of creating and sharing to be a beautiful form of communication.”
Kate is giving away a pair of the dragonfly earring (shown above) to one lucky reader!
To enter, just visit 4 Melodic Suns and mention here in the comments your favorite item.
