My name is Sunni, and I love to craft, which is hilarious considering the fact that my Mom had to use military force to make me glue pom poms and wiggle eyes together to make a little furry creature when I was a kid. I finally gave in to my Mom’s unrelenting desire for me to become a full-fledged crafter when I realized that crafting can be cool. Here I am, about twenty years after the pom pom incident, crafting my little heart out. I’ve learned that being creative is what drives me to get out of bed every morning, but, ironically, I’ve also learned that I’ve developed a nasty case of craft insomnia--you know, the agonizing condition where you lie awake at night thinking of all the nifty stuff you want to make. I require toothpicks for eyelid props on the days following “insomnia episodes.” As for my personal life, I live in the
Deep South with my amazing husband and our lovely dust bunnies. People say I’m the spitting image of my Mom, but I look a lot like my Dad too--minus the facial hair (he rocks a suave mustache and could be Sonny Bono’s long lost brother). That’s enough about me. Fire up those glue guns and, if you’re brave enough, come along for the ride as I get my craft on!
