Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
I am that girl who gets all giddy and excited when visiting a craft store. I could spend countless hours(and money) looking at all the pretty papers, different patterns of washi tape and colorful bottles of paint. I have way more ideas than time allows, but I always have two or three craft projects on the go!
I began doing arts and crafts with my children as soon as they began sitting up, starting with homemade edible yogurt finger paints. My children are much older now, but we still enjoy doing crafts and little diy projects together as a family. I am excited to share some of the crafts we have done lately so you can make them with your own kids or students!
Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I have made crafts my whole life, beginning when I was just a small child, sitting alongside my mother and my love of crafting has continued to evolve over the years, which I now share with my own children.
Who had the most influence in your life?
My mom has had the most influence in my love of crafting. For as far back as I can remember, my mom always knitting, sewing my Barbie dolls new clothes or making little crafts for others. She taught me how to sew and tried to teach me to knit (though I could never get the hang of it). She was a Girl Guide leader for over 10 years and often enlisted my help in coming up with fun and easy crafts to make with the girls. I have so many memories of her staying up until the crack of dawn with her girlfriends, making dozens of crafts to be sold at bazaars to raise money so the girls could have the opportunity to go on special trips and outings.
