Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I’m a differently-abled person who knits, crochets, sews, quilts, draws and paints to keep busy and productive. Crafting items for others helps me find a sense of purpose in life, especially when doing so for other differently-abled people. I love to try new things, and I get bored making the same exact item over and over again.
Tell us about what you sell:
I sell knit and crochet items of all different types. My favorite thing to make are knotwork-type cables and illusion knits. I do things backwards. I find a yarn I really like, then decide what to make from it. Or I come up with a knotwork pattern or an illusion image idea, make it, then decide what to do with the finished piece.
What is your favorite thing about creating?
My favorite part for creating my items is seeing the item come to life.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I find my inspiration from all over the place. Sometimes it’s from the natural world, sometimes from music, and sometimes from something on TV. I like to make and do so many different things, inspiration comes from everywhere.
Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other sellers?
Make what you love. If you start doing well, you will be making the same things, or type of things, over and over again, so you want it to be something enjoyable for you. Never let your joy become “just a job.”
