Craft did a little interview with someone and I really liked the way they did it. I thought it would be fun to do the same thing...with me!

Three Things That Make Your Work Unique

  5. Oooo! A challenge! I'll see what I can come up with! Love this post.

    Please share the Ed Emberley inspiration. And would you mind if I did a self-portrait similar to your idea? I think it's precious.

  13. This is a great idea! It was nice to reflect and take time to think about my path as a crafter. Looking forward to reading about other crafters' "things" as well.
