When did you first start crafting and how did you learn?

My mum is fantastic and she spent a lot of time crafting with me when I was a kid. She taught me a lot as a kid and as an adult I surround me self with creative and talented people and learn from them.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

I remember making a wheelchair for my teddy out of cardboard and duct tape. It didn't last very long, but I remember having a lot of fun making it.

Where do you look for inspiration?

Internet and the recycling bin. I have a hard time throwing things away and I often find myself thinking "you must be able to make something with this".

What's your craft space like and how do you organize your supplies?

We do most of our crafts around the kitchen table. Sometimes we don’t have time to finish our projects between meals, the solution is a couple of large trays. Half finished project and associated materials goes on the trays. The trays can then quickly be put away and brought out again when it’s time to continue.

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to craft along to?

Freja has her ever changing Spotify lists that we listen to. I very rarely get to choose and I very rarely mind.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I like to work out, read and eat good food. Freja loves to dance and play with her friends.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Crafting together kids and parents doesn't have to be hard. We show simple and fun crafts that doesn't require too much knowledge, equipment or time. We create most of our crafts out of things that we find at home and we always work together. The magic is found in the collaboration between young and old, not in the things we create.
