There isn’t a thing A.V. can’t do! Say hi to JamMaster A.V. who’s been crafting since birth. She operates her own DIY blog, A.V. Does What?!, from Brooklyn, N.Y.

What’s your name? Pair it with an adjective that has the same first letter.

Amazing A.V.

What classes do you teach at CraftJam?

Paint and Pot Succulent Plants

How long have you been crafting?

Out of the womb but I really kicked up a notch in the middle school. I spent my summers in the library and art stores learning new crafts. #CraftisLife

What do you like about crafting?

It is so satisfying. From dreaming of an idea to planning and executing it, there is no better feeling than seeing what you created. 

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever made?

I renovated my backyard by building a patio/platform out of pallets and salvaged wood. 


What do you like about CraftJams?

I like when people that believe they aren’t “crafty” come to a CraftJam and create beautiful projects. Doubters tend to make the best DIYs!

And of course wine.

If you could CraftJam with anyone, who would it be?

I would CraftJam with Michael Jackson, I heard he was a really good painter. The King of Pop is also The King of Paint, who knew? 

What’s the best advice you ever got?

“Stay Low, Keep Firing” -The Notorious B.I.G. To me this essentially means to stay focused on what is important in my life.

Best music to listen while crafting? (can be a youtube link so we can embed the song)

J.Lo On The Floor ft. Pitbull. Anything with Pitbull makes me happy.
