Crafty Superstar


Craft along with Carly from Zauberbear

New York

What are your hobbies?

I'm a photographer! I use a Nikon D5000, most of the time, but I'm also getting into film with my Pentax K1000. I'm also a full-time Enchantemissary, which is a title I came up with to describe a person who essentially dedicates their life to making strangers smile. I go on Missions of Magic regularly to inject the world with a little magical spice.

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

I love crocheting, though I don't know more than four stitches. I also love painting and drawing. We do have a room in the house that we call "The Craft Room" but it's rather cluttered and I prefer to sit in my own bedroom, most of the time. And then I get paint on my bed.

What do you craft along to?

I've recently pieced together a playlist that I listen to whenever I'm crafting, now, but sometimes I still visit, too.

What was the first project you ever made?

All I know is my mom let me hold a paintbrush for the first time before I could even speak--and that's where I get the weird way I hold my pencil (behind the knuckle between my middle and ring finger, making a fist with my thumb on top).

What are your favorite items to make?

Anything I can use on a Mission of Magic. Or crowns. Or crafts using nothing but nature.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

The Cwafty Blog and A Beautiful Mess

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I have a magical stuffed bear named Silkworm who enchants everything he makes and attracts magical creatures and accidents. Don't think I mentioned that.
