When did you first start crafting and how did you learn?
In the living room we had a play corner for kids. The play corner consisted of toys, a bench and a table where you could play and craft. I was about 3 or 4 years old back then. My mom told me how to glue paper shapes onto a blank sheet of paper. In general she taught me some craft basics. I remember disliking my scissors, because it was child-safe and therefore didn't cut things easily haha.
Can you remember the first thing you made?
I assume that the papercraft with my mom is the very first thing I crafted.
Where do you look for inspiration?
I seek for inspiration in everything around me. There are actually no daily visits to Pinterest or Instagram. Mostly I start brainstorming and then look for inspiration on Google Images. I like to craft something that's made up by myself and not based on someone else's design.
What's your craft space like and how do you organize your supplies?
At home I have two craft spaces: the kitchen table and my desk in the workroom. Most of my supplies are stored on a shelf inside a buffet. The supplies are sorted by paper, craft tools and supplies (such as stickers & ribbons) in several boxes and letter trays.
What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to craft along to?
Most times I watch MTV, Discovery or Comedy Central. When I feel nerdy, I look for game videos on Youtube and watch people play, haha.
Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?
Once a year I craft some sort of piñata for a Dutch Santa Claus event. We call it a "surprise" in Dutch. It mostly consists of cardboard and paper. The surprise is stuffed with presents from someone's wishlist and you write a poem for him/her. I always enjoy crafting this. Besides crafting my hobbies are playing games (Sims 3), karaoke, cook Indonesian food (my mom's from Indonesia) and bake sweet stuff.
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Everyone can craft! You should just give it a try :)
