What are your hobbies?

Blogging, writing, and hiking with my husband and my dog.

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

I love watercolors, so anything that involves this medium is my staple. I also enjoy creating my own accessories: earrings are my favorite! I like to craft outside on my porch in the summer, and in the colder months, I use my office or my garage for bigger projects.

What do you craft along to?

Czech folk music, The Piano Guys, and sometimes a heartwarming, funny movie. Something lovely and inspiring.

What was the first project you ever made?

I can't remember but I heard the story: My dad, who was supposed to watch me when I was about 1, fell asleep and my mom found me on the kitchen floor sitting in the middle of a giant mess-creation. I pulled everything from our lower kitchen cabinets, including pots and various food items and made...well, apparently a giant abstract sculpture. :)

What are your favorite items to make?

Illustrated prints, jewelry and stationary.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

A Beautiful Mess, Delightfully Tacky, Oh Joy, enJOY it by Elise Blaha, Studio DIY
