Welcome to day Nine!!!!!!!!!
Today meet Katie of Cultivar
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Hello fellow craft lovers! Cultivar is created by me, Katie Reim, in Philadelphia, PA. My wonderful boyfriend, Steve, and awesome dog, Hazmat, have managed to find space to live in our art-craft-supply-explosion of a house. I went to University of Delaware for illustration and usually call myself a Freelance Illustrator, but Cultivar has managed to take over most of my creative time since February.
How did you get started crafting?:
I have been crafting since I can remember but the creation of Cultivar was pretty much a happy accidental ending to a rough 3 years. I had brain surgery in January 2009, and wasn't permitted to do much of anything during the first 6 weeks of my recovery. Sitting on the couch got boring real quick, and painting wasn't really an option. I began to cut up some formal dresses I had hanging around from high school and experimented with turning them into hair accessories for my short new hair-do. Pretty soon I had a living room full of fabric blooms and decided I may as well try to sell them on Etsy. To my surprise, I sold quite a few very quickly and things just evolved from there.
What is your favorite material to work with:
I have a pretty bad case of creative A.D.D. I love experimenting with new things whether I'm painting or crafting.
What is a favorite Christmas Memory:
Growing up my siblings and I weren't allowed sugary cereals but every Christmas we knew we'd each get a box of Lucky Charms all to ourselves!
