Come meet our new JamMaster (a.k.a CraftJam teacher) Olivia. On top of being an accessories designer, she is en enthusiastic crafter with experience in almost every possible craft there is (not exaggerating!). We are happy to have her join our CraftJam Team!
What’s your name? Pair it with an adjective that has the same first letter.
I am Obsessed Olivia, an all or nothing kind of girl.
What classes do you teach at CraftJam?
Stamp Carving and Mug CraftJams and soon to be Glass Etching. Hoping to add some more fun classes in the future too!
How long have you been crafting?
I've been crafting since I could pick up a pair of scissors and a crayon. My mom always did crafts with me growing up and I have been obsessed with creative activities ever since.
What do you like about crafting?
Crafting takes my mind off of everything going on in life. It becomes the focus and in the end you have something to be proud of that you made all by yourself.
What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever made?
It's a tie between an extra large etched glass hurricane and a box I covered in mini locks.
What do you like about CraftJams?
They are casual, easy going and simple. Perfect for someone who likes to craft but also someone who has never crafted before. Plus, who doesn't love trying something creative while having a glass of wine?
If you could CraftJam with anyone, who would it be?
Candice Olson. HGTV just isn't the same without her.
Best music to listen while crafting?
I press play on my iPod and just let it run. I get so distracted I don't even pay attention half the time.
