Francesca Stone
Blogger and Co-founder of Checkmybox

What are your hobbies?

Singing(badly), Dancing(badly). I also love my inner nerd, researching html and Photoshop stuff.

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

Crochet and Knitting are the most relaxing, though I find jewellery making and sewing the most rewarding.

What do you craft along to?

This list could go on. Anything from The Bees to Sigur Ros to Tina Turner to Frank Sinatra. I’m also a big fan of female folk singers in bands like Dark Dark Dark.

What was the first project you ever made?

I couldn’t possibly remember, although I was big on paper mache as a child…

What are your favorite items to make?

Jewellery. I often make new pieces to rejuvenate older outfits and bring my wardrobe up to date.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

The best thing about blogging is the motivation it gives you to keep developing your skills and pushing yourself to learn more. When people comment on or make the things I blog about it makes everything worthwhile. Here are some of my favourite tutorials. Some of which will be available as Kits soon. Keep an eye on the blog for updates.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Every time Moon River plays I cry. I’m a weeping mess by the end of that film.
Catch 22
I’m really into colour combinations. I go through fazes of brights or pastels or muted arrangements. I love how a colour perception can change dependant on what it’s next to.
Hardest question. I love all food! My favourites generally begin with the letter “P”
