Welcome to Blitsy's Feature Friday, where we get inside the head of a top craft blogger! This week we chatted with Randi of Sowdering About in Seattle. Read on to learn where she gets her DIY inspiration and the craft supply she can't live without (it was a no-brainer!).
Tell us about Sowdering About in Seattle and how you got started.
I started Sowdering About when we lived in Las Vegas. I was looking for a creative outlet that would help inspire other people to find their crafty side.
How did you get started in crafting?
I come from a long line of crafters, one of my grandmothers crochets, another used to hand sew quilts, my mom used to build doll house furniture, my husband does woodworking...I feel like crafting just comes natural for me!
What is your favorite project that you have done so far and why?
I try to live by the motto that if I won't use it, I won't make it, so it's hard to pick a "favorite" project. I love them all! But, because I have to pick, it would probably be my Harry Potter inspired tree skirt. I'm such a nerd.
Where do you get inspiration for your projects?
My inspiration comes from my interests. I love Harry Potter, so a lot of my stuff comes from from that. I also love working as a Girl Scout troop leader, so I make a lot of kid friendly crafts. If I am not inspired, I cannot create. You cannot force inspiration.
