Interview with CAT Crafter – Kristina @tinycurl
Where do you live?: I live in the US in a small town within Miami, Florida called Miami Shores with my husband and 4 cats!
What craft is your therapy?: Crochet is my main squeeze, although I dabble in illustration.
How long have you been crafting for?: I have been crafting for as long as can remember! I was one of those kids that was always making something – friendship bracelets, beaded keychains, needlepoint art. You name it and I tried it! But I picked up crochet in 2012 because I was looking for something to keep me occupied during a long road trip. I have been crochet-obsessed ever since!
Tea or coffee?: Coffee all the way! I’m kind of a coffee snob. I love speciality and niche coffee roasters and have a home brew set-up involving a burr grinder, a chemex (pour-over method), and scale! If it’s not good coffee, I’d rather not have coffee at all!
Favourite quote?: Too many to choose a favorite, but here is one I heard recently that I liked – “Most people overestimate what they can do in a single day and underestimate what they can do in their entire lives.”
Your CAT story: Crochet is my creative outlet. It has the ability to relax me when I’m stressed or anxious, or excite me with its endless possibility and beauty. When I first started crocheting, I was making more traditional crochet-y things like blankets and pillow covers. While I still love to make those things, it wasn’t until I started making dolls and accessories that the ideas really started to flow and crochet became my focus!
