What are your hobbies?

I am not sure my life exists outside of creating. Hang on.. yes. Camping! and traveling... hiking and exploring. I also read tarot cards, and I'm learning to read palms. I also have a collection of skulls and bones, and I collect spooky clown dolls and vintage gum ball machines.

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

I like to do a bit of everything! My favorite is painting, and drawing, but sometimes I need a break even from that! I love to sew, and cook. I also love to just make things in general. I love to find use in old things, or make random objects into something useful. I love photography, fashion design and graphic design. Once I made a paper crane, I even like to sculpt.

What do you craft along to?

I'm not a huge fan of watching TV. But, I do enjoy having some noise on while I work. I enjoy educational shows, documentaries, and ancient aliens. I'm so glad netflix has a huge documentary section!

What was the first project you ever made?

The first thing I ever made was a little purse. My mom taught me the basics to sewing, and I sewed up a little purse. The first thing I remember making as an adult was a hat. I was in a terrible relationship, and I learned how to knit. I remember having a very empowered feeling. I made something. If I was ever cold, I could make a hat! It was the greatest feeling.. and it led to more great feelings. It led to me making and selling enough hats to rent a car, and get myself out of a bad relationship. I really do owe it all to learning to make things!

What are your favorite items to make?

Painting has always been a true love of mine. My walls are filled from ceiling to floor with my work, and it all keeps growing. It's a good thing my boyfriend likes my stuff! (And yes, this is a good relationship!) I have sketchbooks filled with sketches, and a few books coming out with my illustrations.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

I've always like and

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Don't stop creating. If you are ever feeling depressed, or worthless.. get a hobby. Create and share it with others. Creating will give meaning to your life. If you don't think you have talent, find one. Please create.. it helps depression. Oh, and get a dog. That helps too.
