April is a coffee-addicted lover of pumpkins with a knack for photography.
Here’s an insider tip from one pumpkin spice latte lover to another – Starbucks will actually make this drink for you any time of year as long as they have the syrup (which they usually do). You’re welcome : )
I love pumpkins beyond belief. I can't wait for September to roll around so I can indulge in my love of the pumpkin (pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin lattes from starbucks, pumpkin butter, pumpkin patches...)
I'm terribly addicted to coffee and get the WORST headaches if I don't have any by 11am.
When I was young, I used to want to be an archaeologist. Or an interior designer. Or a medical illustrator. It turns out that I am not in any of these professions-- the closest I've come to fulfilling any of those childhood dreams is when I decorate theater sets for community theater group I belong to.
I want to move to Portland, Oregon. I recently visited the city and I saw a girl knitting at a bus stop and thought to myself, "these are my people."
What got you started crafting?
As cliche' as it may sound, my Mom got me started. She's the craftiest woman I know. I grew up watching her knit, sew, crochet, make chocolate candy... you name the craft and she most likely did it.
What is your source of inspiration?
Nature, light, fun toys...
What have you made recently?
The most recent item I made is my 8x10 fine art print of Cannon Beach. I wanted to be able to capture the moodiness of the beach, and the beautiful reflection of the sky. More images from my trip to the Pacific Northwest are in the works!
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sell online via Etsy
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Being an Artist, it's important for me to support fellow artisans. I want to know that there was love behind a particular creation I purchase. That there is a story, and that there is a face and real live person behind these items. I would love for people to be able to make a viable living working on what they love and were born to do.
