Congratulations to our featured artist for Q2, pottermouth!!

When we first saw her Girl with a Kite pincushion, we knew we had to highlight her! She is such an awesome talent with a great sense of humor. We're really happy to get to brag about her contributions to the Miscellaneous category and share a bit more about her with the community Smiley! Read on for more information about pottermouth!!



How long have you been crafting? What's the first thing you remember crafting?

To answer the first question, I'll have to mention a story told to me by my mom, because I was about 3 when it happened. The story involves a red crayon, which I used to discreetly outline all of my bedroom furniture. Right on the wall. No one was the wiser until we moved! The first things I remember crafting were re-enactment scenes for my Star Wars figures out of milk cartons and construction paper. (Still have 'em!)

click here to see an awesome picture of pottermouth loving on her Star Wars figures



What's your favorite media to work with?

Going on my stash piles, I'd have to say yarn. Knitting and crocheting are comforting and it's kinda cool to turn a string into socks.



What inspires you?

Little kid art. The things that they come up with! Also books (especially vintage ones), nature, the recycling bin, and Craftster for sure. Craftster is an inspirational gold mine.


(Paintings I reproduced from my twins' art when they were four!)

Do you have a creative philosophy?

Yes I do. "With These Hands". Whether that means creating art, growing a garden, nurturing a child, or even throttling said child for doing something dumb, haha!  I most certainly fall into the category of people who must.make.stuff.



On what other boards can Craftsters find your work?

Well, let's seeumI think I'm all over the place. That's probably because I tend to want to immediately try or do something, whether it's cooking, sewing, paper crafts, whatever. It would be an achievement to post a project in every category, and maybe that will be a long-term goal. Besides the HP Craftalong, I'm mostly hanging out in kittykill's monthly Hoopla-Along over in Needlework.



What's your favorite creation you've posted on Craftster?

Maybe the watercolour of my DH I painted after finding weighanchor's masking fluid tutorial. The same process was used to paint all of our kids, as well as a goofy one of myself, so the personal attachment makes it a favourite.

What's your favorite item on Craftster created by someone else?

Is this an unswerable question?! Craftster is loaded with inspiring, amazing things- how could I choose one?



We're judging from your username, your projects and your participation in the HP craftalongs that you're a fan of Harry Potter. Do you have a favorite HP craft that either you or another member has created?

Ah, Harry Potter. Discovering the HP Craftalong was a momentous day, and with the encouragement from pinkleo, I dove headfirst into a wonderful community of people. Everyone has unique talents that have exposed me to many new crafts and I'm glad to be a part of it. If you twisted my arm and told me to choose just one craft, I'd have to say tapestrymlp's Harry Potter Photo Kit. Not only are the pictures hilarious, the idea was brilliant and perfectly executed.
