Today meet Joy !
Joy is the creative Genius behind Snazziedrawers.
Tell us a bit about you
I LOVE to create. When I am not creating I am thinking about creating. I have two darling little girls, Ava and Addy who make my life so richly blessed. My hubby quit his accounting job in 2010 to help me with the growth of my business. We have loved traveling around the country, emailing patterns on the laptop and me up to my knees in lace and silk sewing headbands in the passenger seat with our babies in the back of our fuel efficient car this year.
How did you get started Crafting?
I got started crafting when I was in junior high making cross stitched items for family members and remember how much I loved seeing my family enjoy their gifts for years to come.
I lost my crafting for years though and found it again when my daughter was born and I started scrapbooking her photos in collage art that really wasn't scrapbooking at all. Then I bought a sewing machine and my husband said it will be a year before you can sew a dress ya know. Ha ha. I am so stubborn. Go ahead and tell me I can't do it. So I finished the first dress about 22 hours later. Pretty hideous really but I had found my heaven on earth.
What is your favorite medium to work with?
My favorite medium in sewing is vintage hand embroidered lace, vintage rhinestones, and beautiful high quality silks.
What is your biggest goal for 2011
My biggest goal for 2011 is to be able to use photoshop and illustrator like a pro. I design pattern pieces in Illustrator and love to play with collage work in Photoshop layers now but I have a ton to learn in both!
Please share a favorite Christmas memory.
My favorite Christmas memory is strangely the year after my father passed away when I was 17. My mom decided to take my two younger brothers and I skiing and honestly it was our first time to really have any joy since he had passed. I remember a lot of tears up in those mountains without dad but lots of laughter and a very snowy, calm, serene Christmas. God was definitely with us that holiday.
Wouldn't your little princess look adorable in these Headbands? Meggie will be gussied up this Christmas with her vintage pink snazziedrawers headband and flowy pink dress.
