What does your craft space look like?
My craft space is an organized disaster most of the time! I usually have multiple projects going on at the same time. And yes, I confess, I am a craft supply hoarder. I try to organize supplies into bins by type and keep my table surfaces mostly cleared off so I can get crafty when the mood strikes.
Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?
I probably use paper more than anything else, or scissors, but that's really all you need sometimes to make some pretty great things. I once folded 100 tiny origami cranes and connected them with thread to make a garland as a gift. It was very well received and it was basically just paper.
What do you craft along to?
I switch back and forth between crafting to tv shows and audiobooks depending on the craft. Following the plot of an audiobook can be difficult when counting crochet stiches so it's usually television for fiber arts and audiobooks for paper crafts and polymer clay sculpting.
Emily's Most Popular Projects
This is such a difficult question! I have so many crafts that I enjoy and I'm always trying out new things. A staple that I've working with for years is polymer clay. My favorite things to make are tiny food charms to put on charm bracelets. I mostly create desert themed charms but I made one with avocados and bell peppers for my mom and she loves it. Tiny things are just so adorable!
Emily's Top Crafts
If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?
I am trying to figure out knitting with double pointed needles so that I can make some tiny mochimochi. I figured out flat knitting but so far circular knitting has alluded me.
