FEATURED ETSY SHOP - MISS INDIE

What a fun colorful scarf! When I asked Mandy to send me a photo of her "favorite item" in her shop, this was her choice. I can see why... it is such fun and full of color!! I'm happy to be able to feature Mandy and her MISSINDIE shop! Don't forget to pay a visit to MISSINDIE after you read below to hear what Mandy has to tell you about herself, and her work.

What led you to start creating your art/craft?
My mom taught me how to crochet a few years ago when I was a sophomore in high school. She taught me the basics, and I instantly fell in love with it. Soon after I taught myself how to read patterns and different techniques and I've been creating ever since.


How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?
Really, its all my mom's fault! She introduced me, and I fell in love with yarn.


What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?

Finding new patterns or creating my own. And yarn shopping. I LOVE shopping for yarn. I swear, I'm like a crack addict when it comes to yarn and a good portion of my room is a yarn stash. Its pretty awesome.


If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?
A mango. Its funky and fun, always different wild colors, and is great by itself or with other things.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?
To be yourself, no matter what. And to have fun with being you.

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?
Just do what you love. Always. Be creative, and have fun with everything you do.



Lovely, lovely work Mandy...now it makes me wish I would have learned how to crochet when my grandma wanted to teach me years ago!! As I was looking through Mandy's MISS INDIE shop, I came across this beautiful crocheted scarf and thought I'd add its picture out here. THANKS, Mandy, for taking the time to share your work with us.
KEEP ON CREATING!!
