What are your hobbies?

Thrifting, traveling, blogging, riding my Vespa

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

I love them all, for different reasons! My favorite part of any craft is picturing something in my head that I want to make, and then having it turn out exactly as I envisioned. Which doesn't always happen, but when it does, it's super satisfying!

What do you craft along to?

NPR, This American Life, The Moth, The Office, The Daily Show, Colbert Report

What was the first project you ever made?

The first thing I ever made goes way too far back for me to remember, but I do recall sewing a pretty snazzy pair of flowered leggings and a matching shirt when I was in elementary school.

What are your favorite items to make?

Clothing and accessories

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Obviously I have a really hard time picking favorites of anything :-)
