Show's host: Simone Collins
Simone Collins is a blogger, crafter, foodie, and reality TV junkie. She loves to try her hand at all crafts but admits that she is probably best with paper. Like most crafters, she is a compulsive hoarder of all things crafty but likes to keep her hoarding very organized. Behind the scenes here at FaveCrafts, Simone is the Editorial Director and Director of Social Media which means that when she is not actually crafting, she is working on the business of craft.
