5. Domestic Diva
7. Divine Debris
Amber is a 30-something crochet fanatic. She enjoys yarn, coffee, and comic books, although not usually at the same time. Although she was taught to crochet at a young age, she didn’t start crocheting until 2012, when she started creating her own jewelry. That hobby turned into blogging about her ideas and then full-time designing. She’s been published in Happily Hooked Magazine, Pattern Pack Pro, and on Red Heart Yarns’ website. She has a BA in Art History and currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and their pet red-tailed boa.

I am Zina and I love to create things from old materials, actually recycling them, and I do love to create jewels. My first love was embroidery, I own that to my mother, who creates masterpieces!

20. Life in the Craft Lane
Originally from England, Julie has been professionally involved in the Arts & Crafts industry for over 25 years as a designer, TV Host, author and consultant. Growing up in England in the 50's, she was always making something and learned to knit, sew, crochet and embroider from her mum and painted with her dad. While living in Germany she discovered new materials to "make stuff with" and Bavarian folk art. After moving to the US in the mid 70's Julie continued her hobbies and sold the things she made at local craft shows and craft malls. This led to working with a "How to" craft book publisher and she authored over 50 books on a wide variety of crafts and decorative painting. Her projects have been featured in craft and decorative painting magazines and on TV. She was host of a popular TV show on scrapbooking and paper crafts for 15 years, but Julie loves all types of crafts and now she features her creative projects with an international flair on her blog, Life in the Craft Lane.
