Who is kraftyiam?

Howdy, my name is Ida, aka kraftyiam, and I am an avid crafter born and raised in NYC. I made my first dollhouse out of cardboard when I was eight - furniture too. I sewed these little curtains...well you get the picture. I spent hours as a child watching my Mom sew on her (now) vintage Singer, and I know I got my craftiness from her (R.I.P. Mom). I used to play with a tin of buttons she kept near her sewing machine, which I confiscated years ago. She had a big laugh when I told her that I categorized those buttons by color and shape…whew, what a job. My elder sister, Yoly, taught me how to sew too, and how to use hair curlers.

Working on my computer is another passion of mine…love new software! I use a wide variety of mediums in creating unique gifts, and I like exotic bugs too (used them in flower arrangements and terrariums in the past). Lastly, I cut mostly by hand, but will use a die-cutting machine on occasion. Well, a big “hey dudes” to my family and friends, and I truly thank you for stopping in.
