It's a late feature today, I apologize! I got busy with my skirt tutorial and had a crazy mishap...more to come! But first! We have a feature on a good Etsy friend of mine, and new owner of the first Mini Ruby 'Roo (custom made just for her!), Karilan from Karilan Designs. Her designs incorporate the dream catcher theme into many different pendants, earrings and necklaces. She also makes journals and notepads. You can find out more on her blog, A Dreamer's Destination. I absolutely LOVE her skeleton key pendants...I've collected keys since I was little, though my collection is pretty small. Anyhoo, let's get to know Karilan!
1. How did you get into crafting?
6. How do you create your designs?
With a tiny needle and a lot of patience! I have a sketchbook full of ideas that I try to keep up with, but sometimes when I go shopping for one little thing, I come home with materials for 3 more designs.
7. What's in your Soundtrack to Sewing?
Tough question!! I love songs that can just carry me away. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Placebo and The Fray.
8. Favorite spots for inspiration?
I meditate while I weave, so I often sit at my craft table, in front of my altar, or downstairs in the backdoor. As long as I'm sitting in daylight, I'm serene.
9. Who inspires you?
My sister is a crafter too and she often gives me more ideas than I can afford. My boyfriend is very supportive and is a great person to bounce ideas off of.
