I am currently working on a pair of earring that are inspired from one of my favorite TV shows, The Mighty Boosh. I am also working on a baggy tank top transformation.

What does your craft space look like?

I usually work at my cluttered desk that's covered in gears & gizmos. (I'm a pack rat)

Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?

I love working with fimo, plants, and random little metal pieces. I find that pliers, tooth picks (wooden ones), and packing tape are quite useful.

What do you craft along to?

like to listen to artists like Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Specktor while I'm Crafting, because they always seem to put me in the right mood. I also like watching Family Guy while I'm crafting, because I always like to have some background sound while I'm crafting, and you don't have to pay attention to Family Guy the whole time yet it's still amusing.

Favorite Craft

I really do vary from types of crafting, but I think my favorite types of crafting are, jewelry making, gardening, and sewing. I enjoy making jewelry, plushies, and little silly gadgets and toys.

Anna 's Top Crafts

If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?

I am thinking of attempting to crochet, and starting paper marbling again.

Who are your crafting heroes?

My Crafting Heros are my older sister Caitlin Barger who is an amazing baker, and Rob and Becky, who are a nice couple that own a shop called Heirloom . At one point I sold a bunch of my goodies at their shop.
