FEATURED ETSY SHOP - VALREA HARRY

Welcome, Valrea and her delightful hand-made items on VALEREA HARRY on Etsy. The charming crocheted hat above is just one of many of Valrea's creations. Be sure to visit her shop to see what else she has to offer.

What led you to start creating your art/craft?

A way to utilize my idle time and make some extra money doing what I love.

How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?

Crochet and Knitting is something I do that is relaxing, and I can do it while I sit and watch TV during the day, while I'm not busy doing housework and cooking.

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

It is all relaxing to me, except when I "over do it" and feel like I'm getting carpal tunnel in my thumb!

If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable to describe your art/craft, what would that be and why?

I would choose a pomegranate since the inside of it is so intricate, like my crochet!

If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your "creativity", what would that be and why?

Either sewing or oil painting because I enjoy creating in both of those mediums.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?

I don't really try to convey a message as such.

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?

Just to GO FOR IT! You won't know until you try.

THANKS, Valrea, for taking the time to share your creativity and thoughts with everyone! I love your crocheted flower sets! Be sure to visit Valrea by clicking on the links below.
