My mother in law taught me how to crochet when I had mono. I had nothing to do all day for a month but watch the History channel and crochet.
I can speak French because I used to live in Quebec Canada. I love the language.
I try to recycle anything and everything. While at college...I go on a weekly dumpster dive. People throw away the coolest things!
What got you started crafting?
When I was in kindergarten, all I wanted to do was draw.
I colored with markers, crayons, chalk...anything became a work of art.
My dream was to become an artist, so my parents set me up with an art class. I learn so much, but soon realized that I had an equal love for children.
I am currently studying childcare at college, but crafting is close to my heart. Every chance I get to relax, you can find me curled up on my bed with a crochet hook.
I draw on all my homework and my teachers don't mind at all.
Being creative helps me get through every day.
What is your source of inspiration?
I love following other blogs and reading about everyone's little adventures.
I don't copy other's ideas.
I take the color scheme, main idea, or pattern and make it my own.
I always carry a notebook around with me and draw things in it when I see something really inspiring. I have to....or else I'll forget.
What have you made recently?
I've recently made a bunch of cute headbands that I'm hoping to get up in the shop.
I've also crocheted a blanket for my fiancee, and some cute pot holders for his apartment.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I tried Etsy for a while, but I could never figure out how to actually get paid for my products.
Yes...I sold things and never got paid for them. Lamesauce...I know...
So I decided to start another blog, besides Miss Yellow Shoes, and use that as a means to sell my stuff.
While in school, my stock is low but I can normally make time to make a little something something.
I've been a little successful in making laundry money with my profits.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Why? Because a machine cranking out 200 mittens an hour can't put love in every stitch.
