Hi guys! I'm Cody. I always see tweets from HAF and thought today I'd take the time to sit down and see what it's all about.
I'm a 26 year old mom for the midwest. I own two businesses, one is handmaking monsters, called Lu & Ed, and the other is a brick and mortar store called Daft Crafts. The focus of Daft Crafts is to sell handmade wares at affordable prices to make it easier for consumers to shop handmade instead of big box stores. We offer art education classes to help the community explore new mediums and make new connections. It's really fun! We don't take a cut of the sales or anything, and instead, we charge $20 a month to advertise for people on FB, Twitter, Blogger, our website, and at craft shows.
I have always been pretty crafty. When I was younger I used to paint ceramics and won second place in national contests a few times. I started sewing about 2.5 years ago and love it!
I use a borrow Bernina named Bernie for my monster making, which was my first project and it just so happened to turn into my livelihood!
I love all arts and exploring new mediums. I can't wait to make new friends here!
