Crafty Superstar


Craft along with Maro from Akamatra


What are your hobbies?

I love to hike in the mountain as often as I can, I adore to travel abroad with my husband and I also love to dance! For me reading books is not a hobby, it's a way of life!

What are your favorite crafts and what's your craft space like?

I am not particular in my crafting. I love any and all techniques I've learned over the years and they are plenty! Jewelry making, sewing and crochet are the top of my list right now and have been for some time.
I've taken over a spare room of my house for my crafts but me and my husband don't dare call it a craft room! Mostly because it is NOT cute and craft rooms by the pinterest definition are super cute. I am also taking over the couch when I am crocheting, but that's in the living room which is definitely NOT (and never will be) cute. Thankfully, pinterest doesn't define living rooms as cute.

What do you craft along to?

Well, I do like to watch old movies when I crochet but that's the only time I am letting myself multitask when crafting. In every other occasion I am too focused into what I am making to put music on.

What was the first project you ever made?

I was raised in a house with a yard, a father in constructions and a grandfather a retired handyman of shorts. I used to beg both of them to give me a hammer and some nails because "I have a job to do". The first thing I ever made was pieces of wood with nails in them. And though noone could really call them pieces of art my family cheered me on like I was an artist. Later my mother taught me how to sew, knit and crochet and create with a purpose. I still learn from her often!

What are your favorite items to make?

That's easy: Bows! I don't really know what it is about them but I am hooked and I can't stop making them. My shop is filled with lots and lots of bows! I started with leather and then moved on to fabric and crochet ones. I recently added bow ties for boys! I am telling you I just can't stop!

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?
