Where? I currently reside in Omaha, Nebraska, but I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago.
What do you do? For a living? Right now I'm a slave to the man, but my passion is my website Warm With Love. I'd love to be doing that full-time. What's "that" you ask? It's a website devoted to charity crafting, and hosts what will one day be the largest search-able archive of worldwide charities accepting handmade goods. Craft something and want to give back? Head to my site to find a charity that wants your stuff. Don't see your favorite charity listed? Contact me and I'll get it added!
What inspires you? I'm inspired by summer days, my kitties, helping others, diy books of all kinds, my friends and family, etsy, knitting and crocheting, journaling, yoga, amazing haircuts, and flickr.
Why are you fly? Because I choose to put others first in my crafting life, whether that be friends, family, or helping out others around the world. I'm fly because whenever I can I find a way to give back to others, and I'm fly because I do so while working a "day job" and not having a ton of money. I may not have the best "hipster fashion" but it's cuz I'm too focused on givin' out the love!
Advice: Follow your heart, even if you have to work late hours and maybe not even receive that much recognition. If you're doing what it is you want to be doing, you'll always find a way to make it work. Always seek out as many like-minded people in your community as you can, whether that be online or in person. Oh, and don't be afraid to pimp yourself. A Fly Chica is never afraid of the pimpage. It's the best way to get people to hear about your art, writing, website, or whatever else!
