What are your hobbies?

Is crafting not enough for you people?! Kidding. When I'm not working full-time or crafting, I like to eat good food (who doesn't, really?), drink delicious cocktails (always in moderation, of course), read, and travel.

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

Sewing is my first love, for sure.

What do you craft along to?

Hands down, it's got to be DVRed HGTV shows. My personal favorites are Ask Genevieve, the High-Low Project, and Secrets from a Stylist. Those matching faces on the Property Brothers aren't too bad either.

What was the first project you ever made?

I've been making things as long as I can remember, but I guess one of my first, most vividly-remembered craft projects was this awesome puff-paint t-shirt I made when I was 6 that featured a biker shorts-clad me carrying a bouquet of balloons. I'm pretty sure it was the most amazing t-shirt ever made.

What are your favorite items to make?

I love making purses. There's a million and one ways to make a purse, so it's just something that I never get bored trying.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

What's your favorite...

TV Show
Am I allowed to admit something terrible like "Gossip Girl"? Er, nevermind. For the sake of my own self-respect, let's say "Mad Men," which I do sincerely love.
J. Roddy Walston and the Business. If you haven't heard them, find them, listen to them, and then I dare you not to dance.

I'm a sucker for an 80s B-run slasher flick. My favorite is "Sleepaway Camp". Check it out. It will blow your mind.
"White Noise" by Don Delillo. It's a dark read but so, so good.
