Hi! I’m Holly and I love making things.
No, I take that back, I would DIE if I couldn’t make things. It’s an insatiable need of mine to create! I have a degree in Graphic Design and when I’m not working full-time as a multimedia designer I’m home making crafts and videos. I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember, art was always my favorite subject. I also loved computers, though, and was drawn to digital art at a young age. I continued to craft through college, creating a club at my school just for crafting. After I got married, I wanted to continue finding ways to craft and found the trading website, Swap-bot. I fell in love with the idea of trading homemade items with others, and I participated in 95 trades! I traded things like postcards, matchbox crafts, Pringles cans decorated and full of candy, and decorated cards called ATC (Artist Trading Cards). It was through Swap-bot that I first learned of “kawaii” (‘cute’ in Japanese) and all that was associated with it. I had known about Hello Kitty my whole life as she is common in the United States, but who was this bear named Rilakkuma?
