Sometimes I feel like my life is one big craft project! I knit, crochet, design patterns, and dye yarn as co-owner of Sweet Paprika Designs. I also work on costumes, props, sets and lighting for theatre and film, which can involve sewing, painting, dyeing, stencilling, papier-mache, or just about any other craft you can think of! That means I'm always learning something new, which is one of the things I love about what I do.
