Welcome back to Blitsy's Feature Friday, where we chat with a top craft blogger about all things DIY. This week we're hearing from Ashley at My Craftily Ever After. Ashley is a wife, mother, and DIY addict living in the Seattle area who spends her days crafting up her own fairy tale ending! Read on to find out how she got her start and which project she's still working on.
Tell us about My Craftily Ever After and how you got started.
My Craftily Ever After was born in December of 2012 after quitting my full time job to become a stay at home mom of three. Soon after, we relocated for my husband's work and bought our first house together. I began looking for a way to express myself and share my journey toward creating my own fairy tale ending. Recently I have returned to work as an elementary teacher and have expanded my blog to include ideas for classrooms and teachers as well!
How did you get started in crafting?
I've always been a maker, and I have always preferred making something myself to buying it in the store. Growing up my mom was a fabulous role model; she was always baking, making, growing or sewing something! I learned a lot of things from her, and as I've gotten older have ventured out on my own. I'm not scared of failing, which makes the process that much more fun!
What is your favorite project that you have done so far and why?
Like most creative types whatever I am working on now is usually my favorite. I put together a faux wedding this summer though and some of those projects are up at the top of my favorites list!
