What are your hobbies?

Baking, reading, singing, spending time with my dogs

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

I love projects I can do with my boyfriend, like the mason jar light fixture we're currently working on or the loft bed we built together. He handles most of the stuff that involves power tools, but he also teaches me as we go, which is great.

What do you craft along to?

I love having craft nights with a couple of friends. The best ones involve wine, cheese, and The Bachelor.

What was the first project you ever made?

I was obsessed with making paper shoes when I was about three. Does that count?

What are your favorite items to make?

It changes constantly, but I've been pretty into DIY beauty lately. Sugar scrubs and lotion bars are quick and easy, plus it's really satisfying to make things you can use on a daily basis.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

There are so many talented craft bloggers out there, but Studio DIY, Best Friends for Frosting, and Snowdrop and Company are a few of my current favorites.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Thanks so much for featuring my projects!
