When did you first start crafting and how did you learn?
I've been a maker as long as I can remember. I still have a few sculptures I made when I was about 6. I've played with probably every medium out there, from fiber art to painting. After high school, I went to culinary arts school, then I also got my Fine Arts degree. I'm always creating something!
Can you remember the first thing you made?
I used to collect scraps of paper and bits of material that I found and create little people from them. My favorite wore a tiny winter hat made from a empty thread spool and a pom pom!
Where do you look for inspiration?
Whenever I'm stumped for a new creation, I look to fruit, veggies and other plants. They were my first quilling line and they still inspire me now.
What's your craft space like and how do you organize your supplies?
My main craft space is built into one of the closets in our bedroom. I was able to take the doors off and slide my craft table right in. I added shelves on both sides and I make use of baskets, decorative boxes, and glass jars to hold my tools, and works in progress. It's kind of a mess most days, but it works for me!
What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to craft along to?
I tend to binge a lot of Netflix most crafting days. I just finished Party of Five and I'm working my way through Jane the Virgin right now.
Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?
I still enjoy all types of crafts, but I really want to learn to crochet. For some reason, it just stumps me! I also love to cook and to hang out with my kids. My oldest is getting pretty crafty!
