What does your craft space look like?
Check out the photos!
Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?
SHARPIES! For whatever reason, they are the best crafting tool EVARRRRR! I get stressed out when I can’t find my sharpies. They are definitely a crafting necessity. From pattern drafting to resin crafting, I always need a sharpie.
What do you craft along to?
Most of the time you’ll find me listening to 30 Seconds to Mars, HIM, The 69 Eyes, and CKY. I don’t always turn music on though. I really enjoy crafting in silence as well.
Thera's Most Popular Projects
This is such a hard question to answer, but I think my favorite craft has to be sewing. I really enjoy clothing reconstruction, making purses and I’m currently into making t-shirt quilts.
Thera's Top Crafts
If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?
I would love to learn carpentry. I’d really love to make my own furniture. That would just be so awesome!
Who are your crafting heroes?
My crafting heros are: My mom and granny. They started teaching me how to sew and craft at the tender age of 7. I’m so grateful that they instilled this wonderful skill/talent in me.
Max California (http://www.max-california.com/). She’s been a friend of mine for years now and she never ceases to amaze me.
Cat Morley. I know, I know, I sound like a fan girl! But seriously, I really admire her for sharing CO+K with the world. It’s such an awesome site. I really love her crafting ideas as well.
