I’m insanely curious about our featured crafter’s black Pomeranian named Chewbacca… He doesn’t by any chance look like this dog, does he?? Chewbacca Dog
I have a black Pomeranian named Chewbacca.
I am addicted to stilettos.
I did costumes for theaters for years.
Someday I will be the crazy dog lady.
What got you started crafting?
My parents are artists and I've always been into crafting. When I was five I discovered my first true love, Gone With The Wind, and the amazing hoop skirts. I would take anything I could find to try and make myself a hoop skirt. Or, when I was one or two I would take plastic grocery bags and make myself clothing.
What is your source of inspiration?
Old books, movies and vintage ephemera.
What have you made recently?
I recently found an old dictionary from the early 1800s with water stains and missing its covers and spine. I could not wait to take it home and rip it apart and I made myself a serious of cupcake related prints for my kitchen with it.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Why get mass marketed stuff when you can have personality and support small businesses?
